Trying to cover all of my bases re: employment visas, help!

Okay, before anyone says so (since it seems to come up in every immigration discussion I have): my fiancee and I have no desire to live in Canada, and if either of us even remotely thought we'd be content anywhere in Canada we would have done that already and saved us a lot of frustration and red tape! :lol:

I am a Canadian citizen who is engaged to a US citizen and is wanting to relocate to the US and live there on a permanent basis. Since we are a same sex couple, we don't have the marriage visa options or we would be considering a K-1 since marrying within the three months would not be a problem.

The simplest way of doing this as far as either of us can tell is for me to get a student visa and then an employment visa once I have a degree. This poses a few roadblocks because:

a) my two options are midwifery and architecture, but I'm concerned that neither of those careers are ones where an employment visa will be easy to come by. It seriously frightens me to risk deportation once my student visa runs out in four or eight years, so any insight on how hard it would be to get an employment visa for architecture or midwifery is greatly appreciated. We will be in Florida.

b) if I go the midwifery route, it would be another year before I could come to school and we're trying to get something arranged sooner if there's even a remote possibility of such.

Since I'm a nanny in Canada, I have toyed with the concept of seeing if I could work as a nanny in the states, but it seems like it would be extremely unlikely unless I could prove that i'm the world's best nanny, so while I have that at the back of my mind I'm just not sure.

So I suppose that what I'm asking is for any general information on employment visas for nannying and for midwifery and/or architecture, and which of those options seems like the best bet for visa, and any other ideas for legally immigrating maybe in shorter order than waiting the year til I can go to midwifery school (although I may end up giving up there and just going into architecture school in the winter session) would be greatly appreciated.

Of the two, Architecture.

Hope you have a lot of money saved up.

I think being a midwife could be a great way to satisfy this. It may be a bit more tricky, but it is certainly possible. You should start researching to see if any others have had luck with that type of visa, and see if you can learn from their experience.
