I am a career nursing instructor, and agree with the ANA position. It would be detrimental to our nursing profession and our clients to bring in nurses from other countries. We always suffer when we do this. I've see it done before.........it's even hard to bring in American nurses on a short term basis ..........like travelers.........agency workers etc. for brief time. NO NO NO!

I am a retired Nursing Professor. This bill would not be helpful to either the rich nor poor countries. The immigration of nurses from poor counties creates a drain on the health care of the population in the country of origin and has a negative impact on the standard of health care of clients in the US. Further, the expense of in-service education for foriegn prepared nurses increases the cost of health care in the US.
