Gee Wiz Oramar.... Did I strike a nerve or something???
The point I was trying to make is that our entire country is being Bullshi**ed. And also, there are a large number of nurses who are being fooled as well(have been for years). I disagree with your point:
"If they brought every single nurse in the Phillipines here it would not make a dent in this shortage"
The issue is not about bringing all the nurses from the Phillipines, rather it's the lowering of standards: The standards of pay for professional nurses and the standards of care recieved by the patients...
Oramar, you have got to see my point- Don't you? This shortage is an engineered thing- You even posted the article on another thread about "Engineering a shortage". Well, this present "shortage" is doing exactly what it was planned to do! It's lowering the cost of overhead (decreasing nursing salaries) that hospitals have to pay!!!! Unfortunately it may also decrease the standards of care
But the hospital admins don't care about that do they? Take a look at AGH - Greedy Admins = "abused nurses" = bankrupt hospital = lower standards of patient care...
What if Oramar.... What if the Phillipines was only the beginning? What about Mexico? What about Canada? What about Australia and England??? The Admins and "engineers of this shortage" don't care about human life- they care about Revenue and the bottom $$$, and they sure as He** don't care about nurses salaries as long as they don't go up!
Oramar, I think you are wrong... Sorry to disagree with you.
