October is the start of the fiscal year and that means that 140,000 visa will be available again for the employment base 3rd preference category (EB-3). What usually happens is that nurses with approved I-140 petitions who have priority dates before May 2003 may see some progress in their application.
Meanwhile, President Obama mentions in his speech that the changes of immigration reform being passed by the US congress this year is not likely to happen because he has alot of top agendas that he wants to finish first like the healthcare, global warming and the financial crisis.
I know all you nurses that have already an approved 1-140 petition are probably already used to this retrogression update and some have even given up on their dream to work as a nurse in the US. Don't loose hope.
