    Most foreign workers who wish to become United States Legal Resident Aliens (Permanent Residents) must go through a lengthy process involving the U.S. Department of Labor referred to as the "alien labor certification process".

    However, the "alien labor certification" process is not required for certain occupations that have been identified by the United States Department of Labor as ones for which a shortage of labor exists. These shortage occupations are referred to as "Schedule A" occupations. Nursing and Physical Therapist positions are both currently considered to be "Schedule A" occupations.

    Several large national healthcare companies are now accepting foreign nurses for positions in the United States.

    Just another company, amoung many, who are looking to make a buck off of nurses. While nursing salaries in general do not advance. It seems that in general, the only people who are not taking a financial and other advantages off the nursing shortage are the nurses themselves.

    What I don't understand... don't these imported nurses have to take a board-exam or something like that?
    I know from a few friends who wanted to go to the USA, they had to take these exams and they were really hard!!
    Although all of them speak and write English pretty well (like moi here), and they were RN's in the Netherlands, so their training wasn't that bad either.

    This is a few years ago though, have the times changed that much? Are you so desperate for nurses now? I've got 20 students graduating in Febrary and about 10 of them are looking for jobs abroad................................

    Take care, Renee

    Dear Betts:

    Thank you for contacting the American Nurses Associations.
    I would like to take a moment to clarify ANA's position with
    regard to immigration.

    ANA's position builds upon the position established by the
    International Council of Nurses (ICN), an international
    organization with 125 member countries. ICN and ANA
    recognize the right of individual nurses to migrate. However,
    ICN and ANA condemn the practice of recruiting nurses to
    countries where authorities have failed to address human
    resource planning and problems which cause nurses to leave
    the profession and discourage them from returning to nursing.
    ANA believes that the U. S. health care industry has failed to
    maintain a work environment that is conducive to safe, quality
    nursing practice and that retains experienced U.S. nurses
    within patient care. Therefore, the practice of changing
    immigration law to facilitate the use of foreign educated
    nurses is a short term solution that serves only the interests
    of the hospital industry, not the interests of patients,
    domestic nurses or foreign educated nurses.

    In 1996, ANA successfully supported the inclusion of a
    provision within the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant
    Responsibility Act. This provision created a prescreening
    process for all foreign educated health care professionals,
    including nurses, who wish to apply for an
    occupational/employment visa. For nursing, the
    Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools
    (CGFNS) was designated as the prescreening authority. The
    prescreening process includes a predictor examination;
    English proficiency testing, both written and spoken; review of
    education to ensure comparability with U.S. nursing
    curriculum; and a check of their home country license to
    ensure that it is valid and unencumbered. This process is
    tied to obtaining a visa and is separate from the state
    licensure process which must also be completed.

    Finally, ANA strongly opposes two pieces of federal
    legislation that would dramatically open U.S. immigration law
    to allow for a substantial increase in the number of foreign
    educated nurses who could enter the country.

    While your concern focuses on foreign educated nurses,
    ANA's primary concern lies with a health care industry here in
    the U.S. that is abusive to all nurses, foreign and domestic.
    ANA seeks to greatly improve the overall working conditions
    for all nurses and to ensure that there are adequate
    protections in our immigration laws that allow for appropriate
    immigration of foreign nurses who are paid and treated the
    same as U.S. nurses and do not undermine the U.S. nursing

    I hope that this information is helpful to you.

    You may specify the type of nursing experience you would prefer and you will have an opportunity to review the nurses credentials before sponsoring the nurse.

    You agree to pay 10% of the starting salary of the nurses that you choose from the INSR within 30 days after the nurse begins employment with your organization. This fee is imposed only after the nurse has passed the NCLEX exam. The nurse will have already signed our agreement to work with the sponsoring organization for a minimum of 3 years.
