    And with chances for CIR to be tackled only in 2012 (w/ no guarantees it will even pass) they should really be starting to file piece-meal legislations that simply can't wait any longer such as the emergency Nursing relief act and the DREAM Ac.

    You forgot to mention the cutoff dates for The Dominican Republic....

    If you are so concerned about the nursing shortage, post the open positions so the thousands of unemployed legal US citizens can apply for these jobs. That would be a community service.

    There are thousands of unemployed US nurses, the health care reform means reduced admissions and surgeries therefore decreased demand for RNs. The many of the class of 2009 is unemployed now you want to import foreign nurses.

    "the health care reform means reduced admissions and surgeries therefore decreased demand for RNs"

    Yea, right. Increasing the number of insured people into millions (and almost the population of Canada) will do that.

    @ US nurse, seek the job, do not expect to have a job lined up at the hospital/SNF/Senior Living next door. I just checked a website they have over 2800+ jobs @ this time.
  10. US Nurse's Avatar
    2800 jobs for the whole country, and I bet when one applies the job is gone, sorry I don't buy it. Many of these are agencies asking you to fill out an application so if a job becomes available they have plenty of candidates.

    Jim, you brought up Canada, they are laying off RNs by the thousands. Look at states which have had mandatory health care, such as MASS, hospitals are closing and nurses are loosing jobs. Thanks for pointing to Canada, which now is testing the competency of every foreign nurse since they feel some RNs in other countries are only equal to LPNS, I agree with you we should be more like Canada, week long testing, limit immigration.

    Perhaps you should focus on the illegals who will need legal support, that is where you will find the need. Unfortunately the people coming the legal route will get the short end of the stick.

    us nurse - please send me your resume. I know several nurse recruiters who would love to have more US candiates.

    WTF are you talking about?? I only mentioned Canada to point out that the expected people getting insurance would be the size of the whole population of Canada.

    Sorry but you are deluded. I know who you are. You are the same person that trolled here last year and trolling other sites that talks of nurse immigration. Pls. stick with AN (I'm sure you know what site what I'm talking about).

    You keep saying the same lame WRONG talking points over and over again. So, we know who you are. Even if you tried to change your username in AN. You're also the ONLY one saying HCR results in less hiring of nurses and other HC workers.

    Your ignorance is quite unique.

    As for Canada. Their local nurses are leaving by the droves to other countries.

    @ US nurse, if Canada is questioning the competency of foreign trained nurses, I would say that their licensing exam is bogus & flawed which also concludes that Canada trained nurses are incompetent too (my inference from your statement). As a matter of fact foreign nurses have more hurdles (credentialing, English test, licensing etc) to overcome before being licensed (same case in the US too). So I personally feel the foreign trained nurses are more competent.

    Check this website www.medhunters.com for nursing jobs but as I said if you really want the job be prepared to move (especially in this economy).

    @ US nurse, You are misguided about Canadian immigration, they are open to skilled workers immigrating which is restricted in the US, nor do they have country quotas like the US. So I do not get your point about immigration being limited in Canada.
  16. US Nurse's Avatar
    First of all, Canada will not let you sit for their exam until you prove your competency.

    Second, while migration maybe open nursing jobs are not available in Canada.

    Third 3,000 jobs for 100,000 grads is not full employment.

    No I am not trying to make a living off nurses, second what are you doing on AN.......Drumming up business, I didn't know this was a moderated site.

    I agree with US Nurse, check out on nursing sites, go to colleges, there is too many unemployed nurses.

    There is no nursing shortage, you are only trying to give hope to poor nurses that employment is available, I am in Florida and jobs are hard to find.

    Any out of work nurses are welcome to send me their resumes. If they are flexible about where they will locate, I have many clients who would love to avoid having to pay attorneys' fees for immigration work. My email is gsiskind@visalaw.com.

    I have put this offer out there before, but, oddly, no one ever seems to follow up.

    "Canada will not let you sit for their exam until you prove your competency"

    How do they determine a nurse's competency? Do they have another way other than licensing? I would like to know.

    "I have put this offer out there before, but, oddly, no one ever seems to follow up."

    Greg, If they are really serious about securing a job they would be willing to relocate.
