Recruiting English nurses for CA?

  1. What's going on?
    I had a recruiter call me today about a hospital in California that is planning an expansion.

    He said the hospital recruiter was on her way to England to recruit nurses to fill the positions?

    I know nurses in the UK don't make alot, but my goodness, aren't there enough nurses here? I can't imagine flying to England to recruit when there are alot of nurses here that aren't working or are doing agency or PRN or something like that!

    They go everywhere to recruit. You should have seen the job fair here in Ontario last month. More than 90% of the booths were American hospitals offering all the freebies.

    A lot of our nurses in the US are choosing to work outside of the hospital. That is why CA placed the nurse to patient ratio law.
