    Hi,
    I need some information related to Green card processing for Registered Dieticians in USA. Currently I am doing internship & preparing for licence exam for registered Dietician through Iowa State University. I already completed all the requirements of American Diatetic Association. In Dec. 2005 I am planning to appear for Board License exam. I have few questions:

    1) Is Registered Dieticians also comes in the same category as Regestered Nurse/Physical therapist?

    2) Currently I am on H4 visa. Is there any possibility I can start my GC process directly under special category (RN/PT) if I get some sponser.

    3) If yes When should I can start my GC processing? Can I start it now or have to wait till I clear my State board license exam. I did Master's in Food Science & nutrition from India & completed all the requirement of American Dietetic association from Iowa State University, Iowa.

    I am really very sorry for this big mail but I desparetely need help from this forum in this regard.

    Registered dietician doesn't belong to RN/PT category, thus is not a Schedule-A career. I am afraid you have to find an H-1 sponsor first and wait until EB-3 VISA is back available.

    Registered Dietician (nutritionist)

    Hi Bassam,

    Thanks a lot for your help. Is there any source from I can get some information regarding immigration policy for Registered Dietician in USA because in my hospital during internship I got an impression from senior dieticians & staff member that due to shortage of registered dietician, immigration is very easy & fast just like RN/PT. I appreciate ur help.

    I am no expert regarding nutritionists finding a job in the USA. But I believe the problem is your birth place. As long as you were born in India, the only way now is the one through H1B. Because you don't belong to RN/PT category in the eyes of immigrant officers (not your staff members), you are suject to backlog/unavalability of EB-3.

    Hi,
    I am Hetal Shah and have done my P.G.Diploma in dietetics. i will pursue my Masters in Nutrition from fall 2007. I would like to know the job prospects of nutritionist after completing the masters with RD. Also, can u let me know the chances of getting done H1? Is it done as easily as its done for IT people. Is it difficult to get a sponsor for H1 for dietitians or nutritionist?
    I would really appreciate if you can help me with this.

    Thanks
    Hetal
