REPORT: FOREIGN NURSES A KEY PART OF SOLVING SHORTAGE

Rate this Entry

The National Foundation For American Policy report confirms what we know. The real question is whether nursing organizations who put their organizations' financial interest in maintaining a shortage will succeed in thwarting ending the black out on nursing immigration. Does anyone else see the irony in barring nurses from immigrating to the US under non-immigrant or immigrant visas when their occupation probably has the most severe shortage of any in the country and where American lives are literally hanging in the balance?

    OK, maybe I am too pessimistic, but the way I see it, protectionists are firmly in control of Congress. Legal immigrants can just forget about any immigration relief. Good news for off shoring and outsourcing organizations, bad news for everyone else.

    Greg,

    Is Schumer's amendment still alive? They withdrew it in the past saying they will bring it back and have not made any attempt at it yet.

    How can these people not want to help solve this nursing crisis? What political cost can they possibly pay for doing this right? Things work funny in DC!!

    Maybe more lobbyist and donation can help. American Nurse Association needs to open their mind.

    Hi, Greg

    A lot of students who used up their OPT had to change to a dependent status or continue MSN in order to stay. Cannot understand why politians do not want these nurses to work in the U.S. by bridge legislation.
