    I am a US citizen and a dialysis nurse. I have become a traveler because there are no dialysis jobs where I live. I know a number of dialysis nurses and techs who have been laid off. I know of four who are collecting unemployment.

    US companies need to hire US citizens first.

    they should....but then, in an open market and a democracy,employers still has a choice.
    before this thread turns again into a foreigner-bashing one, let me just point out that it is not the nurse applicants fault if they got thru the U.S. inspite of the present situation.it's still the discretion of the concerned government agencies whether they will approve the petition or not.....

    I have seen lots of RN positions in dialysis specially in fresenius medical care.. and those vacancies were posted a couple of months ago and still not filled in.. with regards to hiring foreign workers like us, our employer undergone the legal process to obtain our visas. and it is the DOL who approved the LCA (labor certification application), and as far as know, one of the conditions to hire an H1Bs is not to replace american workers..so maybe, the company needs our skills and qualifications to perform in that specialty occupation..

    The H1B cap for this year has not yet been met, so if you applied now and were approved, you could start in Oct 09.
