Nursing license and Advanced Parole

Timeline

My fiancee is close to her interview date but now we have hit a major snag in the visa process leaving us with some painful choices. She wants to get her Filipino nursing license but the exams are held in June (she's not ready) and November.

We should:

1) Wait until after she gets her license in the Philippines and endure 4 or 5 months more seperation?

2) Have her come to the U.S. and get a license here and then take the NCLEX?

3) Have her come to the U.S., get advanced parole, have her go back to take license exam in the Philippines and then hope she can get back in the U.S.?

4) Make cardboard cut out likenesses of one another and marry the cardboard?

This blows because I thought we were near the finish line and now it appears to have moved beyond the horizon.

Actually K1 is valid for 90 days, but I otherwise agree. Even if she got her nursing license now, she would have to wait until she got permission to work, which will be after you get married and then applied for EAD (Employment Authorization Document, which you get while you are waiting for the Greencard). So when she gets here, she will have time to study up on the NCLEX. There are computer programs or books you can buy on Amazon to help with the NCLEX studies.

One correction, you mentioned getting the nursing license and then taking the NCLEX. Actually you must take the NCLEX first before you get a license, it is a requirement. I know, my wife is an RN. If things change and she is able to get her license in the Phillipines, she may not have to take the NCLEX, as I *think* there is some sort of agreement between the two countries. Anyway, her nursing school there would know that for sure.

........Hello guys..i think just continue her interview as what u said she's not yet ready..local nursing exam in the philippines is not something that is trial and error..cos im a nursing graduate my self..She can get nclex exam without asking for her license where she came from, that is in some other states not all in the usa..better have her interview first so u'll be together soon,,happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!! hahaha...

NOPE :no: The visa is valid for 6 months after it is issued. And once it is used to enter the USA, the K-1 holder will be given 90 days stay on the I-94.
