Yes, I agree there's always a possibility of some kind of conspiracy therories but really if that was the case, the problem with the FB writer's mention was the timing of his batchmates who are now CA RN's? He needs to clarify the when did they get their RN license as he mentions they are already working, meaning to me, it was prior to the stricter implementation of the CA BON rules. That needs to be clarified so others know.
He mentions only CA is the ONLY state, well, we know there are 12 others. I don't have or use FB myself, but maybe someone can let the other readers over there of what we know. Actually, in researching this concurrency issue, it was NOT CA that started this, it was AZ!
I posted up an article on how seriously bad it is and will be for the vast majority of PH nurses trying to get a nursing job in the States. The demand for PH nurses will MAYBE start in the year 2020. But also seriously doubt that will be the case, as more and more US educated grad/nurses are going to fill up the proposed vacancies over the next 10 years or more.
Here's that article about US Labor Market being real bad until 2020:
US Labor Market Tough for Filipino Nurses until 2020
The US is alone graduating close to 1,000,000 new nurses versus the PH's 145,000 plus, read the article I posted here. Anyone wishing to post up the article on this guy's FB, please do so if you want. The news should be told to many PH students, as they are headed towards a dead end job market for the masses.
Oh, I'm not saying it's a NEVER get hired or there's NO hope, I don't believe in "never", but it sure will not be easy to get a job in the States.
The doors are already closing for those PH grads, who they themselves or their parents or nursing relatives, who don't have a way to obtain a SSN legally or without marrying a USC.
There are NO known hospital sponsorships in CA or in many of the other States, if you know, please post here. What hospital in their right financial minds are going to wait 6 years to sponsor anyone, pay all those fees for what? They need nurses who can work right away, there's NO, absolutely NO patient's that's going to wait 6 years either! Post that up on the guys's FB. They may call you "crazy" or "jealous" or "liar", but in the end, you'll know they'll be coming back saying, "sorry, you're right, we should have listened" one day soon.
