I passed my Nclex in 2013. At the time, I tried to apply to all agencies here and abroad, but I never got an answer. It was only Health Carousel at the time that was open and actively filing immigrant visa petitions for nurses even if there was retrogression.
I was interviewed by Heather and Ericka in 2013 and was accepted. At that time, Health Carousel did not have any of their programs existing now (e.g. IELTS, VS) so it took me a year to process my visa screen because I was working and had a baby as well. I signed with Health Carousel in February 2015. My I-140 was filed in June 2015 and my I-140 was approved in September 2015.
I can say that Health Carousel really takes care of their candidates and I speak from experience. What I like is their transparency and honesty in keeping their candidates updated. I can say that I really made the right choice in staying with them. I can say that I am very lucky to have been under Ms. Raissa. She is really the best IDA ever! She goes way beyond what is expected of her. The extra mile that sets her apart from all others. I not only gained a valuable partner in my journey to the US but I also gained a friend.
I would just like to say to other nurses/PTs/OTs waiting for their application process, please be patient J Believe and trust Health Carousel
