wow what a statement, I have jumped through so many hoops for emigration. I wonder if the original OP understands the emotional rollercoaster involved with emigration. I am a little surprised with OP as one of the reasons for my family choosing to move to US is the friendliness and respect we have always received on visits there, we didn't just stick a pin in a map, we visit the US regularly. Like someone else said, there are always good and bad nurses and country of birth is not neccessarily the deciding factor. Maybe the OP is having a bad experience of more than one nurse to make such a blanket statement, I hope it improves for the OP.
I am very thick skinned and am still gonna pursue my dream, I know I am not taking anyone's job as emigration ground to a halt a couple of years ago before the economic slowdown actually hit you all at a local level, it has been really difficult for nurses to gain visas for a long time and that situation will not resolve until it becomes easier for nurses already in the US, they can only recruit overseas if they have not been able to fill the post with a US resident, thats always been the rule! BTW I gained NCLEX first time, with 75 questions in under an hour, so guess I must have learnt a little about nursing in a 'foreign country' over the years
