"U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in a stakeholder teleconference on Thursday, January 16, 2014, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (Eastern) to provide feedback on issues regarding H-1B nonimmigrant and Schedule A-based immigrant visa petitions (second and third employment-based preference categories) for nurses. ... This engagement will provide an opportunity for the newly assembled team to hear from stakeholders on such topics as the educational requirements for entering into various nursing occupations, duties in nursing occupations, licensing issues and standards, visa eligibility requirements, staffing agency contracts, and new industry trends. A new “Executive in Residence” will participate in the listening session to hear directly from peers on issues of importance to the nursing industry." - USCIS, Jan. 8, 2013.
