my current hospital is hiring foreign nurses left and right. Are hospitals being given a tax break or some kind of benefit if they chose to hire foreign nurses and sponsor them? Our director didn't hire a local grad ADN nurse but choose to hire foreign nurses who has big time language and culture barriers doctors, pharmacy and patients alike are upset because the degree of difficulty trying to speak to these nurses and trying to understand their needs. Our current nurse recruiter is of a certain descent and now we see an increase in hiring foreign nurses from his country.The staff are thinking he is prolly connected to a business in his native land of sending nurses here in the U.S. for work. If so, then isn't that convenient.
