After months of surging ahead, the U.S. Department of State has recently retrogressed the EB-3 visa cut-off dates. What does this mean to you?
The Big Picture
1. Health Carousel's PassportUSA program remains the largest U.S. recruiter of foreign-trained nurses and has more positions open than it has nurses available to fill.2. The demand for nurses (especially experienced internationally trained nurses) has never been stronger and Health Carousel is adding new client healthcare facilities every month.3. The fact that RNs are one of only two named occupations by the U.S. Department of Labor that receive expedited Green Card processing through the Schedule A classification indicates the U.S. government realizes the long-term need for foreign-trained nurses.4. During the past 10-plus years, Health Carousel has been through periods of retrogression before and has never abandoned a sponsored nurse.5. Your recruiter is there for you today just as they always have been. If you have concerns or just want to hear a friendly voice � reach out whenever you want to get the latest priority date update.

How Much Does It Cost?
Nothing. Health Carousel/PassportUSA has never charged a health care professional a fee for its services; rather, we reimburse nurses for many of the costs that they incur in preparing themselves to come to the U.S.
What to Do While Waiting
Keeping your nursing skills current is important. Opportunities to practice in the Middle East remain plentiful. Closer to home, Health Carousel offers qualifying nurses the opportunity to enhance their skills by participating in one of our nurse residency programs. Ask your recruiter for more details.[caption id="attachment_259741" align="alignleft" width="200"]
