I keep reading about "foreign-trained nurses". Is that someone who trains in another country, but has to pass the nursing tests in the USA? Or do they just get to use the license they earned overseas?Do they provide a lot of competition for jobs against American nurses, or are they not very numerous in the labor pool?After I get my BSN, I was wondering if I would have to worry about competing with foreign-trained nurses? I've been reading that some nurses feel foreign-trained nurses work for less money; I'm not sure if it's true or not, and this is not my personal view; I just keep seeing nurses post about it on the Internet. ONCE AGAIN, FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO JUMP ON THE CHANCE TO TAKE OFFENSE, THIS IS NOT MY PERSONAL VIEW. I AM ONLY REPEATING WHAT I HAVE READ FROM NURSES ON SITES LIKE INDEED.COM ON THE INTERNET. PLEASE DO NOT FLAME ME. Thanks.With the unemployment rate what it is, I am concerned and I want to know the truth about all the factors.This is not a post against immigration; I just want to know the actual situation out there.I am also curious about why we import nurses when so many American nurses can't find work? It seems like the government would limit the work visas in this recession? Are the nurses typically moving here just for the jobs, or moving here for other reasons and then taking the nursing job?Sorry if these are naive questions. Thanks!
