Immigration regulations require that when filing a nonimmigrant or immigrant petition for certain health care occupations, including Registered Nurses, the Petitioner must include a healthcare worker’s certificate (sometimes called a VisaScreen) from an authorized credentialing organization for the Beneficiary listed in the petition.
The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS), the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), and the Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy (FCCPT), were previously the only authorized credentialing organizations listed in the immigration regulations.
On July 22, 2021, USCIS approved the application for Josef Silny Associates, Inc., to be added to the list of organizations authorized to issue certificates and certified statements for Registered Nurses.
