    Its not a question of who is willing or interested who's caring enough or who is better in the nursing. These reasons are misleading. Its how one is willing enough to be a part of the nursing till they retire. Lets face, how many percentage of the foreign born and U.S. born ended up serving and retired as nurses their whole life. Who among us are willing to sacrifice so much for their career? This is the question which we want to impose on those who think they are better because they care more or they are better... etc...
    Its about service with humility.
    Exactly..

    I totally agree! To all foreign nurses wishing to become a US nurse, don't let anyone in this forum or anybody at that matter discourage you to follow your dream. It may take you 5 years, 10 years or 20 years to be able to come here because of the backlog but do not ever lose hope.

    America's doors will always be open to foreign nurses. Not for the moment but probably in the near future. For the meantime, you can apply to other countries. There is a nursing shortage in other countries as well. Get more exprience until such time visas for the US will be available again.

    Again, don't let anybody take your dream away from you! Good luck to all foreign nurses.

    I like your attitude, you will go far in life im sure, you probably already have!! :spin:

    Yes, many are interested to study Nursing and be a nurse whether American or other foreign hopefuls--They are attracted with the pay and the benefits.The question is, how many of these people would last in the Nursing field or work full time in the hospital??..

    But it's not about "service with humility."
    It's not about "a willingness to sacrifice so much" for a career.
    Good intentions alone do not make a good nurse.

    The days of Florence Nightengale following two steps behind the doctors is long over. Modern nursing is a highly technical field that requires quality education and clinical preparation to perform at a competent level. Nurses who graduate from good nursing schools have attained a level of expertise that will enable them to think critically, to make clinical assessments, and to make independent decisions. They are able to communicate with confidence, regardless of whether they are talking to a patient's family or the head of the hospital.

    If I am hospitalized, or in a nursing home, or at a doctor's appointment, it really doesn't matter to me whether the nurse who is taking care of me plans to be a nurse until she retires. It doesn't matter how much they have sacrificed, or whether they are humble. I want a nurse who will notice a subtle change in my condition, and knows what to do about it. I want a nurse who knows her stuff!

    Things have changed from what they were in the past, and the chances of someone getting to the US are getting slimmer, not increasing.

    Add in the number of students that are enrolled in nursing schools in the Philippines now, quite an increase of probably ten fold from what it was in the past and it is going to be impossible for all to get to the US. Again, why is the US expected to take everyone that wishes to work here when your country will not even let a foreign nurse get licensed there as well.

    Things need to be fixed there, and since the job outlook is becoming more dismal there and we are expecting the US to require work experience as a screening tool for them, how is someone going to get work experience when they do not even wish to get a local license and actually get experience someplace.

    This thread has run its course and since there is nothing new on the horizon for the next few months at the minimum it is being closed.
    There is no relief for the retrogression as it is going to be in place for sometime. The US has never had an open door policy, and never will. And the number of applicants far exceeds the number of visas.

    There is no reason to give someone hope when the chances are getting slimmer and not going to be better. And I have been working in this field for probably more years than many of you havew been on this planet, so lets be realistic with who is actually working in nursing and trying to make a difference.

    Of the past posts in the day or two, not one has had any suggestions or recommendations, but just jibes at the moderators here and others for presenting what is actually going on, not what you think is happening. And this is not going to be tolerated here. If we did not care, we would not even take the time to be posting here, when I could be sleeping.

    And funny thing is that many of you still contact me for my help and I offer it.
