THERES A RUMOR CIRCULATING HERE ABOUT " THE US WILL STOP HIRING
FOREIGN NATIONALS RN IN 2008" THEY WARNED US THAT WE WILL BE THE
LAST BATCH TO GO (IF LUCKY ENUF) & BEFORE I CONCLUDE I HAVE TO ASK
YOU GUYS ABOUT IT. YOU ARE MY FINAL ANSWER. THE RUMOR CAME FROM
ONE OF THE UNIV. PROFESSOR IN NURSING (BUT THIS GUY IS A RELIABLE
SOURCE). ANY COMMENT?:uhoh21:
Totally false. Sorry. But you wanted our opinion. Another favorite is you need at least 2 years working experience to be petitioned and another one is you need to take the local NLE first to apply for eligibility to take the NCLEX (this is true only in some states that still require CGFNS certification - but majority of foreign RNs go to states that CGNFS certification is not required, anyway).
What was the reason s/he gave?? Did s/he gave a hard copy/proof of where s/he got it from? His/her source?
The answer would prob. be no because there's no such thing in existence. There is retrogression for the moment but people can actually still be petitioned during these times from packet 1-3 then just wait for the last stage (packet 4) when retrogression gets lifted next year.
The burden of proof is on him and if he can't provide anything then it is plain blatant rumor w/ malicious intent.
When are you graduating, btw? If you don't mind.
Trust us on these.
