    i totally agree with what lasagna_RN said.is there wrong if the nurse wants to get out from the contract especially if she is able to pay the corresponding penalty and if the agency is already abusing her right as a person??? if you are the nurse and you find your agency's rules and regulations inhumane and u have the money to get out of that contract, wont you pull urself out of that situation????........

    i feel that these agencies just came to realize that filipinos now are smart enough to think for themselves,their safety and whats best for them and that theyre just threatened because if during the past 10years filipino nurses sticks to their agency despite of their inhumane treatment,now they just found out that their abusive styles are no longer tolerated by the filipinos and they cant control us like robots anymore.

    tri citi medical center in california still looks for "filipino" nurses. specifically FILIPINO nurses...and theres alot of hospitals all over america specifies filipinos as their choice

    all you out there know the reason why STILL they are looking for filipinos.

    interesting observation.



    some "nurses" who got their bsns in less than 6 months--who paid a lot of money for their tors & diplomas--obviously can afford not to work.
    where did you get that info? outrageous!

    This is all bad news for me because the state I chose to work in is California. If they aren't accepting Filipino RNs anymore, then I've nowhere to go.

    Businesswise, Henry Seno's interview by the local newspaper, is purely advertisement. He said he is the president of the American Dream Review Institute --- he is trying to gain popularity for his review center since it is very new in Cebu where Sunstar happens to be the widely read local paper. I have to say, students in top schools didnt even have second thoughts enrolling in review centers growing like mushrooms.

    By addressing such claims, he knows that it will be in the headline of the newspaper. Moreover, any news with regards to the nursing sector is of big interest in the Philippines, NOWADAYS. Thus, he is really smart!

    I doubt if he is in the right position to make such statements even if he claims he is connected with this agency blah blah. Everyone in their kind of business claims the same thing.

    This article is purely advertisement!

    I agree with you Lasagna_RN!

    I've worked with a lot of fellow Filipino nurses here and most of us are hardworking, quiet (sometimes too quiet:spin law abiding citizens/residents!


    there is pure vested interest written all over this article!:angryfire

    "Amdream's website said it is an affiliate of a Los Angeles-based company with operations in the Philippines that serves as a springboard for Asian operations. It was conceptualized for the purpose of assisting nurses to pass the different US immigration requirements."
    completely and totally agree. Any valid points made in this "article" should be taken with a huge grain of salt. Fear mongering and promoting his review center. What a joke. Actually, I think review centers are a joke. they are in business to do the studying for you, YMMV.....

    I agree. I never used a review center for my NCLEX.

    to clarify: most hospitals in northern california stopped petitioning foreign nurses because of previous petitionees walking away from their contracts.

    they will hire you if you already have your green card.

    And the same can be said about many other areas in CA currently. And adding on to it the retrogression, it is getting harder and harder to get petitioned directly by a hospital in CA.

    Right to work is for US citizens, and does not necessarily apply to foreigners that are wishing to work in the US. Remember that the green card is still as a guest in the US.

    And to the above, sure there are agencies/employers that have done things that were not correct, but there are also a great many more nurses that have walked from contracts in CA and for without a valid reason, other than they could get more money. And it had nothing to do with the work conditions at the facility, or where the facility was located. One site that comes to mind was Santa Barbara last year, seven or so just walked after they had their green cards in hand, and for no other reason than they wanted more money. They actually had a very good contract. Santa Barbara used to be one that would petition, but they are not doing that anymore.

    What has happened in NY is different from what has been going on in CA and they are not related in anyway. Have seen more walking in CA then have ever seen in NY or any of the other areas.

    And with the retrogression in place and expected to continue for sometime for those from your country due to the number of applicants already in line, it is going to me much harder to get petitioned anywhere directly right now.

    The issue is not what the owner of the center stated, he is not even in the Us, but making yourself the better candidate for a facility.

    What was happening a year ago in the US just does not apply now. Things have changed drastically.

    this case sounds familiar.

    7 filipino rns walked from their contracts almost at the same time, right after they received their green cards in the mail.

    response was swift: the hr director stopped petitioning for filipino rns.

    no ifs, ands, or buts.

    the rns in the hiring pipeline for that hospital were abandoned. had to start from square one.

    this is why i am not happy with rns walking from their contracts just to get more money. some i've talked to said "it's not my problem. i have my green card. i have to think of my future."

    what about the other filipino rns still in the philippines earning $7 per day?

    what about their future?

    sadly, this was not an isolated case. i have heard of other similar cases in california. (and new york city.)

    let's bring back our palabra de honor (word of honor).

    if you sign it, honor it.

    do not weasel your way out of the contract because of trumped up reasons.

    when it's so transparent that the main reason is money.

    bravo!!! exactly.

    how would those that have walked away, feel that it was they that were left to dry in the pipeline?

    someone get the names of these people...
