To do this, you would need to have a estimator for nonlinear 3SLS
which Stata does not have. If you want to keep using Stata, there are
some additional approaches you might try though:

* Estimate the model via an interative estimator and -reg-, like in
Blundell and Robin (1999). You would have to include the residuals
from the first stage regression in the share equations to correct the
endogeneity (This is done in Banks, Blundell & Lewble QAIDS paper).
Blundell and Robin provide a formula for the standard errors, but
since the estimator is computationally efficient, it is easier to
bootstrap the whole thing.
* Estimate the model with -nlsur- including the residuals from the
first stage regression in the share equations. Again, adjustment of
the standard errors is needed. I am not aware of the adjustment in
this case. Bootstrapping would be slower.
* You can estimate a -LA AIDS- with full correction for endogeneity
and correct standard errors using -reg3-, no iterations would be
* You can estimate the AIDS or QAIDS with -reg3- and an iterative
estimator like the one mentioned before. Some adjustment of the
standard errors is needed for estimation with generated regressors.
* You can estimate the model via -gmm-
