I am a nurse and I just had my Immigration interview last June 13th. Everything went well, I even told the consul that I am planning to take a state board when I get there.

Never ever ever lie to the US government about anything, ever. If it's important, they will catch it. That's called "material misrepresentation". If they catch you in a lie about something important, even years later, they can revoke any immigration privileges they've granted up to that point, even citizenship!

Never lie on a form or in an interview about anything!

That said, I don't even understand why you're worried. Why on earth would they even possibly consider you being a nurse to be a bad thing?? Granted you may probably have to do some extra work to get licensed as a nurse in the US, but why on earth wouldn't you tell them you're working as a nurse now?

Im just worried that they'll think im Just using this visa to get into US and work there and probably deny my application.

It's a standard question and nothing to worry about- in fact, it is a good thing, it shows you are willing to work to support yourself.

What Ratty said. Also, isn't nursing one of those coveted professions as far as immigration goes? I think it is one of the preferred trades up here...I could be wrong though.

The U.S. Embassy Manila approves nurses all the time. My wife, Chinook, is a nurse and her visa was approved. Chinook's friend is a nurse and a K-1er. She was approved also.

The good thing about being a nurse is that you are unlikely to become a public charge in the U.S. That's a good thing.

More good news: the NCLEX-RN is less expensive in the U.S. than it is in 'pinas. It only costs $200 here in the U.S.

If you're a nurse, then you're a nurse. No need to lie. Don't even think of lying, it can come back to haunt you, big time.

This is what make me confuse too. What did you guys fill in on the DS-156 question about working part? Yes or No or None or N/A? Did you write also the explanation on that box?
