Filling nursing need: Business developed to Import India's RN's

  1. Two decades ago, Venkat C. Neni was a family doctor in India yearning to be an entrepreneur. Now he's a Milwaukee entrepreneur helping nurses in India migrate to staff-starved hospitals in the United States.

    Very Interesting.

    I worked 2.5 years for a company that was in a similar business. They recruited Information Technology professionals (Programmers, etc.) from India and brought them to US and contracted them out.

    It wil be interesting to see if this takes off and if so, what the advantages/repurcussions would be for the nursing profession.

    You can pay an immigrant from India a whole lot less than a person from the US.

    Ask any of the thousands of IT professionals now out of work in Silicon Valley and across the nation what some of these repercussions are.

    I thought most states have laws which say you CAN'T pay someone from India less money than an American in the same job.
