Nurse Shortage Has Recruiters Looking Abroad
The required test currently is given only in the U.S. and its territories. USA Today reports that by offering the exam abroad, the licensing board hopes to make it easier for more foreign-born nurses to bring their careers here.
U.S. hospitals are desperate to fill more than 125,000 vacant nursing positions - a figure that's expected to triple in the coming decade, as baby boomers demand more health care services and fewer Americans go into nursing.
The need appears matched by a supply of foreign students who view nursing school as their ticket to the United States, according to USA Today. Add to that the advantage of taking the test in or near their native country, and the number of test-takers is likely to soar.
More than 23,000 foreigners took the U.S. nurse licensing examination last year, up from about 20,000 the year before, according to USA Today. Most came from the Philippines, India, Canada, Nigeria, Korea, the United Kingdom, and the countries that once belonged to the Soviet Union.
help alleviate the nation's ever-more-acute nursing shortage, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing has decided to start offering its licensing exam at overseas sites by October 2004.
