    Emergency Nurse Relief Act 2009- Update

    Where did I say they don't have the right to expression ?? I was merely reminding you your roots and how you came here. Hardly, not what your fellow Filipinos expect of you. Your lucky, most probably when you came to the US on a work visa there was probably no fellow Filipino saying the same things as you are now. Congratulations. Off-topic enough?

    Emergency Nurse Relief Act 2009- Update

    There are lots of Americans all over the world. We can go on and on and I can say the same thing as you have said to all Americans working abroad. The thread will go off-topic of course but then it seems that if there's nothing left to debate re: the the original topic people cite things not related to it anymore. We are of course in a global economy and it's a two-way street. Maybe GM should move out of China, etc... But bringing up those things would be hardly fair and off-topic so I think people should stay on topic.

    Emergency Nurse Relief Act 2009- Update

    Of course, as always the thread has effectively gone off-topic again. I can bring in more off-topic issues here and we can debate 24/7.

    NP Gilly. These are not temporary work visas being talked about. Once they set foot in US they are given permanent residency aka green cards so all the scenarios you mentioned does not apply. You came to the US yourself from another country, so you should know the difference between a work visa and being a permanent resident. Or you forgot how you came to the US yourself as you claim.

    Don't forget to mention that it's only good for 3 years then it stops.

    Emergency Nurse Relief Act 2009- Update

    I have just read the whole blog you are referring to from the very start. It seems that you, using multiple usernames on that blog instigated the whole thing by calling foreign educated nurses as inferior. And you cry when people try to defend them? What crap are your trying to pull? It's also very easy to conclude that you are the same person who is trolling that site and instigating things like you do here at allnurses.com. You keep using the same xenophobic, ignorant lines from the past year or so. It was very easy to conclude that you are the same person. What were you doing there anyway? And how thick face can you get by bashing foreign educated nurses in such a thread and bashing the immigration lawyer (and therefore all immigration lawyers as well) who authored it on his own blog site. Of course, he will defend himself because unlike you he uses his actual name and does not hide by a username or hide on being anonymous. And by the way the debate/discussion that went there other commentators seems to be more knowledgeable than you are. Furthermore, they back up what they say unlike you that can't even stick with one story (nor stick with one username). P.S. Hope you don't make an excuse that it's not you there. It's very obvious, specially that you are obviously trying hard to bring it over here and trying to turn the tables on him and hope no one actually reads the whole comments from the beginning and just read the last few new ones.

    Thanks for this update. If you have a link, a memo (in pdf format), pls. kindly post it here as there are some that thinks otherwise and had claimed that they were able to re-take (the whole exam this time and by forfeting their license) even after the deadline.

    AOS - Without Interview

    Congrats, redranger. Very Happy for the two of you. Seems like just yesterday when we discussed these via PM, if you could remember. Everything will be alright, I think.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    Just like what Liverpooljane said, try to look back on your previous post. And I wonder who made the assumptions? You were trying to say it to an American w/c you assumed to be a foreign-educated nurse. I just reminded you that you were talking to an American (redranger) and not a foreign-educated nurse and it was very clear you were emphasizing you are American and just reminded you that the so-called freedom of speech does not extend here as clearly stated in the TOS. Try reading it again Also, if I may be blunt. What you are trying to inject in this thread has totally nothing to do w/ the thread at all anyway. Same way you did on the last thread that is closed now. It's nice to give opinions, but you have to make sure you know what is being talked about first and not hi-jack a thread you think you know what is being talked about but really don't. And what exactly assumption I made? That you are American? You really can't make a post like that and not make an impression that you are emphasizing you are American then back pedalling that your not entirely American. And even backpedalling that there really is no American culture or custom after emphasizing it in aprevious post. Also, I was just reminded you that you were trying to point out something to an American (redranger) and just reminded you that freedom of speech does not extend in this site per the TOS and even if this site is AMERICAN, everyone is expected to abide by the TOS whatever nationality you may be.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    People in this thread are talking about the attitude of a few members in the site is displaying and consider offensive. This website, located in cyberspace is not "America". Freedom of Speech? Try to re-read the Terms of Service of the website regarding it: https://allnurses.com/terms-info.html Try reading the other parts of the TOS as well regarding being remaining polite at all times and not giving inappropriate generalizations. There should be no single custom that should dominate in this website. Only the TOS.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    FYI: redranger is an American. This why I said in a previous post that people who do not know the whole story and even know who is who just don't join in. To complete things, ghillbert is from Australia, lost-stranger is from India, and a few others are from UK.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    I wasn't talking about anyone in particular. It was a general comment, since may people are butting-in in this 'grievance thread' that was obviously allowed to go-on as it was already appropriately closed recently. It is not for anyone to say there aren't anything wrong going-on, whether it's so-called new members and even Staff. And since the thread was allowed to go-on, I decided to put my posts here as well. I am still on-topic as far as I know and I am a regular member now just like anyone else that gave their grievances at this thread and literally being replied to by others that they find no merit to what they are saying. Well, maybe this the very reason why someone has made a public thread about it. Don't you think? If people (I am using a general term) keeps telling them publicly there aren't anything wrong then that just proves even more their point and more the reason for such a public thread such as this. There's a reason why people resort to this.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    I think those who don't know the whole situation should just stay away from this thread. The grievances being expressed by some members here are legit and these are regular members that has spent considerable time in the Int'l and Philippine forum. Majority of them have been members for years and regularly visits these specific forums, so I think they know what they are saying more than people who have just become a member very recently or members who only occasional visits these forums. Also, take time to consider that many members from diff. nationalities have observed this as well and not just one race trying to defend themselves. And they are REAL members. I, too have observed what they are complaining about. For those who don't me, since there are many new members and old members that only occasionally or seldom posts in the Int'l forum I have been a member of AN for more than 3 years now and 2 out of those 3 years as a moderator here in the Int'l forum and Phil. forum. So, I think I also know what I am talking about as well. While I was a moderator here, I concentrated on the Main Int'l forum and the Phil. forum (and visit it almost everyday while I was a mod) so I know the regular members here and those who only occasional come here and basically butt-in on threads they either don't know about or know little of or only know part of the whole story. Best, you don't join in this time around, if only just for this thread. The situation has been going-on for months now. Sorry, but I find it hard that no member of the Staff don't know of this.

    Topic of the Day: GO AWAY FOREIGN NURSES!

    I agree with you in most parts but everyone should realize that the ignore function only works individually and some members expects the TOS to be enforced consistently. If the issue being raised is allegations of discriminatory, xenophobic, or prejudice remarks a simple ignore function doesn't really do much. It's still there for everyone to see and read. People. all over the world read these bulletin boards. The registered members and paid member aren;t even half the story. There are far more people lurking and reading this BB as "guests" and they don't have ignore functions. Also, if there are already a significant number of members complaining or citing their grievances from a good cross-section of the site from diff. nationalities, including a few Americans, the staff should look into it and not resort into defending themselves publicly. Also, if members resort to publicly starting a thread instead of reporting it or using the admin help desk means they may not trust that anything may not be done regarding it. And after reading the posts in this thread and from the responses so far, I do not think anything will be done either. Some may even regard some responses as being 'arrogant'. And really, what is moderating or banning a few offensive members with regards to loosing more members as a result of not doing anything on those few members?? Those few members you refer to who do what you say are already considered internet trolls. Preventing members in barging in threads a.k.a. hi-jacking threads and injecting controversial and off-topic posts not related on the thread itself and sometime may not even be related to the sub-forum most often times results ultimately in more arguments and hate. This is from the TOS: Being a premium or a platinum member should also not be a hindrance in enforcing the TOS. The paid membership is only there to give extra benefits and should not be used as an excuse for not enforcing it.

    Has Philippine nurse training changed over the years?

    It's unfortunate what's happening here lately. Members constantly hi-jacking threads and posting off-topic posts and the it's being permitted to be done Most of the arguments happening here are because some members keeps hi-jacking threads and posting off-topic posts in the first place.
