Lol, after everything I've learned about your healthcare system, you need not worry about this Canadian nurse taking your job. Many American nurses get shafted:
-Poor working conditions and low pay
-Termination and call offs frequently
-No health insurance or benefits
-Minimal to no raises in pay
-Very unsafe patient loads
-Routine threats and worry re: litigation
-Mandatory overtime often: yes they bug me to work too, but we can and do say no.
Aside from California, where the pay and working conditions are comparable to mine, I probably wouldn't cross the border for work. At one time, I contemplated it. With the current climate, there's just too much to lose.
