H1b prospect for non IT graduate


I have Masters in English from India and 1 year of Masters in English in US. I worked in India as an English Lecturer and then as a Research Assistant during US masters. My BA was in Office Management. Then I changed my field to Nursing (Registered Nursing), worked for close to a year. I couldn’t work further as there was regression for India nurses. Now I am on H4.

I would like to pursue a track in IT. I was able to obtain some certifications in specialized technologies (Salesforce.com) and I (think) am very good at them.

Since my experience (5years) and education (18 yrs) were non-IT, what are my chances of H1b getting approved should I find an employer who is willing to sponsor me?
