Petitions for Nurses and Allied Healthcare Workers

Special Pricing: AILA Members can register for the live event for only $59.00!

This 90 minute audio seminar will be recorded live on October 9, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.

Particularly in this era of healthcare reform, there is a growing need for qualified healthcare workers. This opens up major new employment opportunities for international allied healthcare professionals, such as advanced practice registered nurses, physical therapists, occupation therapists, and speech language pathologists. There is a complex labyrinth of educational, licensing, and credentialing obligations that need to be fulfilled to establish the overall ability of a foreign healthcare worker to provide medical services in the U.S. system. This seminar discusses this complex interplay of immigration law and the standards of the medical profession as they affect both nonimmigrant and immigrant cases.

  • Using Schedule A for Nurses and Physical Therapists
  • The Role of State Licensure and Credentialing in H-1B and PERM Cases
  • USCIS Reliance on the EDGE Database in Evaluation of Foreign Education
  • EB-2 Consideration for Healthcare Workers
  • Drafting Immigrant Visa Applications for Roving Healthcare Workers
  • VisaScreen: Who Needs It and Why?
  • H-1B for Nurses: 2002 and 2014 USCIS Memoranda
