  1. NPTE EXAM DATES FOR 2012

    by , 05-23-2011 at 07:18 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo
    FSBPT has set the NPTE Exam test dates for 2012. FSBPT established a uniform testing policy after it found evidence of testing breaches. In response to testing breaches, FSBPT first sought to establish a separate but equal NPTE exam for graduates of Philippine, Egyptian, Indian, and Pakistani schools.
    A Georgia court ruled that the FSBPT's plan was invalid under law and recently settled the lawsuit with the Georgia plaintiffs. The fixed-date testing program was the outcome of the lawsuit.
    The 2012 testing dates are:
    January 30, 2012
    March 29, 2012
    July 2, 2012
    July 31, 2012
    October 23, 2012

  4. PRES. OBAMA'S IMMIGRATION SPEECH

    by , 05-10-2011 at 08:28 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo
    On Tuesday President Obama is expected to make a major immigration speech at the US-Mexican border town of El Paso, Texas. That the speech is taking place in El Paso speaks volumes about the US' immigration policy; the debate on the undocumented overwhelms any other immigration issues that this country has.
    The need for healthcare workers in this country is about to explode. Both private and public economic forecasters predict that the jobs that grew in the 2000-10 decade will be the jobs where growth is seen in the 2011-20 decade. The Department of Labor says that these are largely healthcare jobs. It will be telling if the President tries to position legitimate immigration alongside his enforcement aims.

  5. WHAT THE LACK OF H-1B FILINGS REALLY MEANS

    by , 05-04-2011 at 07:34 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo
    This year a mere 9,200 cap-subject H-1B Petitions have been filed through April 29. In prior years we have seen many more H-1B cases accepted as slots were available; in the go-go years of the 2000s, the H-1B cap was reached on the first day.
    This year's paucity of H-1B Petitions provides compelling evidence against the argument that internationally-trained workers are being used to displace American workers and lower US workers' salaries. That argument just does not jibe with what is actually happening.
    If H-1B visa labor was being used primarily to lower US workers salaries, the H-1B filing numbers wouldn't be impacted to any meaningful degree. Why? Because the incentive to reduce workers' salaries is likely greater in a recessed economy, not less. This logic is straightforward.
    Yet, this year we've seen a dramatic downtick in H-1B visas filed in industries like Information Technology and Finance. Meanwhile industries with continued staffing shortages, such as healthcare and teaching, continued to file H-1B Petitions. If the H-1B program was being used to lower salaries, why aren't the IT and financial industries continuing to file H-1B petitions? Are these industries not interested in cutting costs?
    Critics of the H-1B system fail to acknowledge just how well the system actually works. In robust times, the H-1B system allows growing companies to attract more workers from overseas when they can't fill those jobs with US workers. In down times, when jobs are few, the market does what it is supposed to do and fewer H-1B job offers are made.
    If Congress really wants to reform the H-1B process, it ought to eliminate the arbitrary quota and just let the market sort out the numbers question. Congress also ought to give non-bachelor degree occupations with well-documented staffing shortages, such as nursing, access to the H-1B program.
