  1. NEW DHS SECRETARY COMES WITH BAGGAGE

    by , 12-08-2017 at 11:49 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)

    In July, President Trump elevated Gen. Kelly from his initial cabinet position, Secretary of Homeland Security, to Chief of Staff. Despite plenty of time for golfing, the President then waited three months to nominate a new Secretary of Homeland Security. Finally, in October, the President nominated Kirstjen M. Nielsen for the position.

    The Department of Homeland Security oversees, among other sub-agencies, USCIS. USCIS, of course, reviews nonimmigrant and immigrant visa petitions.

    Earlier this week, the Senate confirmed the nomination by the smallest margin ever for the position, 62 to 37. For comparison’s sake, Gen. Kelly received 88 votes in favor and only 11 against, when he was approved by the Senate earlier this year.

    Ms. Nielsen reportedly comes with baggage. She is caught up in an ethics complaint. The allegation is that she used a private consultant to help guide her through the Senate review process. The consultant, in turn, will now be seeking millions in federal contracts from Ms. Nielsen.

    She reportedly was also not highly regarded at her prior two positions in the White House and at DHS. Axios said that on Ms. Nielsen,


    “Nielsen is not a beloved figure at DHS; just as she wasn't inside the White House. She has a very sharp-elbowed approach to doing business and doesn't command anywhere near the respect that her predecessor, Kelly, did, according to more than half a dozen sources who've worked with her.”

  2. FOREIGN NCLEX RATES CONTINUE TO RISE

    The latest 2017 NCLEX statistics show that foreign-trained nurses are taking and passing NCLEX at the highest rates since the peak years of 2006-2007. Almost 10,000 foreign-trained nurses have taken and passed the NCLEX in 2017. US NCLEX pass numbers have been ticking upward since 2014, although at a much smaller rate than foreign-trained nurses

    These numbers are considerably lower than the peak years of last decade. In 2006, 20,907 internationally educated RNs passed the NCLEX exam. In 2007, the volume jumped; 22,827 internationally educated nurses passed the NCLEX exam. With the onset of retrogression, 2008 saw a slight decline; 18,905 internationally educated RNs passed the exam.
