H-1C Work Visa for Registered Nurses
H-1C nonimmigrant work visa category was originally created in 1999 under the Nursing Relief for Disadvantaged Areas Act (NDRAA) for Registered Nurses working in a hospital located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) as determined by the US Department of Labor. There are only 500 H-1C visas available nationally each fiscal year. States with more than 9 million population may have 50 H-1C visas annually and states with less than 9 million population may have only 25 H-1C visas. Any unused visa in a fiscal year may be issued to states regardless of the population or numerical limitation during the last fiscal year quarter.
