Proposed bill: Healthcare Workforce Resilience Act
There is a proposed bipartisan bill that would give 25000 unused greencards to nurses. If this were to pass, how would one apply for this? My mother passed NCLEX (and has a masters) and is a registered nurse. Her current H1B petition is currently as a system analyst because we heard H1B for nurses is rare. Would she qualify for this program or does she have to be practicing nursing right now? My mom's PERM is from 2017; we are from India; living in the US.
I know this is optimistic, but considering that several republicans and a few democrats are even considering this, I am optimistic.
