I thought the article was weak and i probably wouldnt bother to comment on it except to say that some of the best nurses that i have worked with have been foreign trained, eg irish and Philipino. What i will say is that when you bring in foreign nurses you dont deal with the issues for nurses leaving the field in record numbers, for the reasons for decreased enrollement in schools and why are nursing schools closing. The issues remain for nurses left in the field, sicker and sicker people to care for, awful work conditions, mandatory over time ,stress and more stress, and the list goes on. I would say to nurses that are planning to come to the USA to work DONT, it is awful here. Try European hospitals, much better work conditions!
