New York State is the first state in the US to require a Bachelors of Science in Nursing for all nurses.  The BSN must be obtained within 10 years of practice, starting with nurses first licensed in New York in Summer 2019.  All currently-licensed New York State nurses are grandfathered into the current licensing systems and do not have to obtain BSNs.

This new educational requirement may allow foreign nurses who apply for nursing licenses in the US to apply for the H-1B visa.  The H-1B is normally of limited value to foreign nurses because the USCIS often denies H-1B RN petitions.  However, with the new BSN requirement, the USCIS may approve H-1B petitions filed on behalf of foreign-educated nurses.  It remains to be seen how the USCIS updates its policy in light of the updated New York State licensing requirement.

  2. Hello MU,

    I would like to ask if its possible for the dependant spouse and applicant to be interviewed in different embassy such as one is working overseas. and how is the scheduling? will they most likely be interviewed on the same time span? thankyou

    1. Yes it is possible, but it will greatly delay the case. A whole new case will need to be filed for the trailing spouse. You are much better off having both attend the same appointment.

  4. Hello MU Law,

    In your opinion, will USCIS change tje course of foreign nurses application and will allow BSN degree holders apply for H1-B while waiting for pending EB-3 cases? Thank you and more power!

  5. I`m Charlie Bean. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email or number +1(512) 714-8010.


    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed..
