Immigration: More Foreign Nurses Needed?

Date: June 21, 2009

QUOTE: Wexler's bill is opposed by labor unions, whose leaders say it would undermine efforts to produce a steady domestic workforce while sapping other nations' nurses. Obama has also expressed skepticism about the idea that the U.S. needs to import nurses, in particular because the U.S. unemployment rate continues to rise.

For more than 10 years

For more than 10 years, the U.S. has faced an absence of therapeutic overseers to staff mending focuses and nursing homes. While the present subsidence has bolstered some who had left the calling to return, marketing-assignment-uk around 100,000 positions remain unfilled. Experts say that if more isn't done to appeal people to enter the field and to expand the U.S's. support planning limit that number could triple or fourfold by 2025. President Barack Obama's goal of stretching out prosperity extension to countless uninsured could in like manner go up against additional impediments if the supply of restorative overseers can't deal with the request.
