Things will be very hard at the moment to find sponsors due to the high number of nurses currently struggling to find work in the US already this would be regardless on whether looking for immigrant or work visa. Also going with agency makes no difference you will be caught up with retrogression for immigrant visa as visas are allocated by place of birth and agencies have no control of allocation of visas.

All of them are affected by the retrogression.

Most hospitals aren't willing to hire Americans/Legal Residents of the US, what makes you think they will be willing to hire foreigners with open arms? It's not cost effective at this time. There was a time when there was a shortage of nurses in the US but now there's a surplus. There's no need to go abroad when the nurses here should be taken first. My suggestion is to find a Plan B and stick to it until Plan A can take effect. Good Luck

Why would hospitals hire outside of the US when there are qualified Americans? Hospitals have decreased the use of agencies also.

Why are you people so rude? Not everyone overseas is aware of a) retrogression or b) the state of the US economy. They come here, to the INTERNATIONAL NURSE forum to inquire - politely - about working in the US and get attacked with aggressive statements like "what makes you think they will be willing to hire foreigners with open arms" or "Why would hospitals hire outside of the US when there are qualified Americans?".

Why don't you try being polite to guests? It's not hard to say "there are currently no visas available" without the assumption that the foreigners are trying to sneak in and steal american jobs. Nurses working all over the world in other countries all the time, it's not an unusual request.

I am sorry, if I was rude.

If I was planning on migrating to another country I would, a check the local news ( every day the US and International News such as CNN International news cite the US economy and US immigration as a hot topic). Why would you want to come to a country where they would hire immigrants while their citizens are unemployed ? Isn't common sense to research a country before you invest years in school when there are no jobs in your home country?

What I think is rude is the numerous scams which try to sell the dream of working in the USA, UK, or Canada knowing that there is no chance of anyone working.

Also I read that people are counting on the immigration bill to be their ticket to USA, what people don't realize that the bill is targeting on how to legalize the illegal immigrants.

The real story is if you go back just a couple of years on this board, US citizens have been saying very politely, that the US Economy is changing, employment patterns are changing. Yet , nurses send money to agencies that help them file for a license, find them a job, go to university for programs that have no relation to nursing, keep enrolling in programs that promise them a job in the USA.

IMO I don't think there was anything said that was rude. If you took offense to it then my apologies. Nobody said that foreigners were trying to steal jobs in the US. But at this time there aren't many available for anybody. If people would do their research as MedSurg stated and read up on previous posts they would see that at this time there isn't a need to hire foreigners and to find a Plan B until A can take effect.

Please guys can we try and be nice to everyone. This is the International forum and we get people posting from all over the world with questions. Even now there are people that are not fully understanding retrogression in the US and how it is impacting on people. Please let us use this time for education and being friendly to all

Just FYI For all You Foreign Nurses That Are Thinking of Coming to the US to work: The jobs here are scarce and less and less foreigners are trying to get jobs in America.

"The US labor market for foreign nurses is shrinking. America itself is producing more nurses, and fewer healthcare service providers there are making new hires ...."

(see article below from Oct, 2011)

Only 1,370 Pinoy nurses sought US jobs in Q3

Only 1,370 nurses educated in the Philippines indicated their desire to seek employment in the United States by taking the NCLEX for the first time from July to September this year.

The number is 38 percent, or 857, fewer versus the 2,227 Filipinos who took the US nursing licensure examination for the first time in the same three-month period in 2010, according to LPG-MA Rep. Arnel Ty.

Citing US National Council of State Boards of Nursing statistics, Ty said only 4,354 Filipino nurses took the NCLEX for the first time from January to September.

“This represents a decline of 44 percent, or 3,426, compared to the 7,780 Filipino nurses who took the NCLEX for the first time over the same nine-month period in 2010,” Ty said.

The number of Philippine-educated nurses taking NCLEX for the first time, excluding repeaters, is considered a sound indicator as to how many of them are trying to practice their profession in America.

All the same, Ty said the Philippines remains America’s top potential supplier of foreign nurses.

He said a combined 1,894 nurses educated in India, South Korea, Canada and Puerto Rico also took the NCLEX for the first time from January to September.

Ty said a total of 17,589 nurses educated outside the US took the NCLEX (including repeaters) in the nine-month period, but only 27 percent of them passed the examination.

In the same nine-month period, a total of 152,068 US-educated nurses took the NCLEX (including repeaters), and 84 percent of them passed.

“The US labor market for foreign nurses is shrinking. America itself is producing more nurses, and fewer healthcare service providers there are making new hires in light of continuing government subsidy cutbacks,” Ty pointed out
