Recently, WorldWide HealthStaff Solutions had a visit from one of our nurse candidates who just arrived in North Carolina from the Philippines. She was preparing to begin her new career as a RN in the United States. The HealthStaff team had a Q&A with her and I had asked her the following question:
“Some candidates get discouraged while going through the immigration process because of how long it takes, the amount of money that is needed for different stages, as well as family issues and other circumstances that may come up. What advice do you have for those candidates?”
Her response was: “Trust the timing of the process.”
While the immigration process takes time and things can come up that may discourage you, the important thing to remember is that all of this will be worth the timing, expenses and other trials that you will have to face.
Just Trust the Timing
As a Case Manager at WorldWide HealthStaff Solutions, it is always interesting to see how excited our candidates are during the first few stages of the process because the timeline between those stages is very short and feels like it is moving rather quickly. Once the petition is filed the waiting begins. This is when candidates often feel like there is nothing else they can do at this moment except to… wait… and trust the timing.
This is the most important part of the whole process. What does trust the timing mean exactly? This means there is a long wait that comes with completing your immigration and that there could potentially be delays. However, it will be worth it in the end. Once you step foot on American soil, you will know that all the tears that were shed, all the money that was spent and all the time you waited was worth it.
Three Important Things to Remember
This is an investment for your future.
Completing the immigration process is going to beyond a shadow of a doubt change your life for the better. All the money that you spend and all of the patience that you will have to demonstrate throughout the 18-24 months of your immigration is being invested to achieve your American Dream.
