Filipino registered nurses play an important role in the United States healthcare sector. Conexus MedStaff helps registered nurses from the Philippines unlock countless professional and personal opportunities in the USA, by providing full Green Card visa sponsorship, relocation, career growth opportunities, and much more. Find out in this article how Conexus can help you secure your USA Green Card through nursing.


Fully sponsored immigration

The U.S. immigration process is complex and can be lengthy, which is why we make it easy for you by handling it end to end. All you need to do is gather your documents, submit them to our team, and we do the hard work for you. The comprehensive support offered by our team, from filing your I-140 petition to your deployment to the United States, is what makes Conexus the nursing recruiter of choice for international healthcare professionals from around the world.


Visa options for registered nurses

We offer two immigration options for nurses to arrive in the USA. All registered nurses who work for Conexus are issued with an EB-3 visa which offers permanent residency, otherwise known as a Green Card. The timeline for receiving an EB-3 visa can be lengthy due to changing Priority Dates, which are announced by the

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) throughout the year in the monthly Visa Bulletin. Read our recap of the latest Visa Bulletin, or learn more about Priority Dates.


For NCLEX-licensed registered nurses who want the chance to deploy sooner, Conexus provides the choice of arriving in the U.S. on an H-1B visa. Typically, this means being entered into an annual lottery run by USCIS, during which individuals are selected to receive an H-1B visa. While there is no guarantee of being chosen, with the H-1B visa registered nurses can deploy to the United States within 12 months of being selected, making it a popular choice.


Both EB-3 and H-1B are good choices for an international registered nurse visa in the USA.


Exciting assignments across the United States

All the opportunities provided by Conexus are Green Card sponsorship nursing jobs. We work with healthcare facilities located across the United States. As a Conexus registered nurse, you will liaise with our experts to find the best placement to suit your personal and professional ambitions for life in the USA.


Grow your nursing career with Conexus

Our award-winning education program begins before you arrive in the U.S. We help you build your skills and become familiar with ways of working in the USA, to help you acclimate more quickly when you arrive here. You have continued access to Conexus Academy throughout your time with us, so you can expand your knowledge and make the best possible impact on your patients’ well-being. Additionally, you can apply for the Education Advancement for Registered Nurses (EARN) Scholarship. Our EARN Scholarship awards financial support for nurses to grow their clinical knowledge, skills, or education.


Live the American dream

The United States is the “land of milk and honey”, according to Conexus nurse Primadel. Originally from the Philippines, she moved to the USA with her husband and son to build a better life as a family. Since she arrived in the U.S., Primadel claims that her career has “leveled up”, and that she’s grown both professionally and personally.


“I feel so blessed and grateful with Conexus, they have always been so supportive and have guided me and my family all throughout the process, from the time I passed my interview, to filing the I-140, to when we arrived. Conexus made sure that we are situated, safe, and that they are there if we need anything. We’re in good hands.” – Primadel
