Messages to RN Applicants

SOCIAL SECURITY FOR LIENCES If you have passed the license exam but cannot obtain your license due to lack of SSN, contact nursing boards of the states that do not require SSN such as New Mexico and Vermont. See if they accept your NCLEX score and issue you a license. If you are planning to take the exam, choose those states. You have come this far and made so much sacrifice and investment in the license, make sure you get it.

EMPLOYER SPONSORSHIP As for sponsorship for your permanent residence (green card), at present, no employer is sponsoring due to current visa backlog. Although there is no telling when the backlog is going to be lifted, it can happen any time. Meanwhile, you should be prepared for it by getting as much experience as you can. If you are still in school, try to get on CPT , curriculum practical training, which allows you to work outside campus for up to 20 hours per week. If you have just finished your associate degree and used your OPT, optimal practical training, get on an advance degree in nursing, such as nurse practitioner, while working under CPT. This way you are paid to gain valuable experience which is crucial in your job hunting once visa becomes available. I will keep your record on file and inform you of any change in the visa situation.

OTHER OPTIONS FOR GREEN CARDS Further, if you are still in a legal status, such as F-1 , B-1/B-2, or J-1, or simply out of status, you may consider other options. If you have suffered persecution or have a well founded fear for persecution, on account of your race, nationality, religion, association or political opinion, should you return to your home country or the place of your last residence, you may consider asylum as an alternative. If you qualify, you may get an approval in as soon as three months. Once you do, you, your spouse and minor children (under 21) all qualify for employment authorization now and green card in a year.

About the Law Firm


Attorney Brian B. Jiang specializes in immigration law and licensed to practice in California, Pennsylvania and District of Columbia.

Attorney Brian Jiang started immigration practice since 1987 when he received his Juris Doctor degree. Over the course of sixteen years, he has concentrated on employment-based immigration and other related areas. Since 1992, the law firm has successfully represented several thousand scientists, engineers, college professors, physicians, business managers, and graduate students in their applications for permanent residence.

Country of origin of the firm's clients extends to: Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Zaire, Thailand, Korea, Japan, India, Pakistan, and China.

The law firm is located in Southern California while the firm's clients live across North America and other parts of the world. Yet the geographic distance between clients and the firm has never kept clients away but rather brings them over thanks to modern means of communication and, more importantly, the confidence and trust of the clients in the firm supported by its quality work. Consequently more than 85% of the firm's clients, including those residing in Southern California, have never set foot in the office. They never need to.

During the last decade, public opinion towards immigration has changed as a result of intentional misinformation, which is unfortunately reflected in the change of immigration law. Worse yet, capricious interpretation and arbitrary enforcement of the law have caused great confusion and misery for immigrants. Nevertheless, the New Continent remains the land of opportunity and hope for many. As long as the flow of immigration continues, the Law Office of Brian Jiang will continue to maintain its professional standard and improve its quality of work. To our clients, old and new, keep your dreams alive and we, as always, will do our very best to help you realize it.
