A nurse is a healthcare professional, who along with other health care professionals, is responsible for the treatment, safety, and recovery of acutely or chronically ill or injured people, health maintenance of the healthy, and treatment of life-threatening emergencies in a wide range of health care settings.
Nurses may also be involved in medical and nursing research and perform a wide range of non-clinical functions necessary to the delivery of health care. Nurses also provide care at birth and death. There is currently a shortage of nurses in the United Kingdom, United States and a number of other developed countries.
It has been well documented through surveys and researches that there is a great need for nurses in America; therefore, there are many opportunities for skilled, experienced, and motivated nurses. We are very excited to announce that everyday, we are conferring with more and more hospitals to hire foreign nurses.
Registered nurses generally receive their basic preparation through one of three basic avenues:
- Associate of Science in Nursing: Graduation from a degree-granting nursing program conferring the degree of ASN/AAS or ADN in nursing. This involves two to three years of college level study with a strong emphasis on clinical knowledge and skills.
- Diploma in Nursing: Graduation with a three-year certificate from a hospital-based school of nursing. Few of these programs remain in the U.S. and the proportion of nurses practicing with a diploma is rapidly decreasing.
- Bachelor of Science in Nursing: Graduation from a university, from a four - five year program conferring the BSN/BN degree with enhanced emphasis on leadership and research as well as clinically-focused courses.
Shortage of Nurses
USA is currently facing an acute shortage of nurses and is projected to grow to a million in the next fifteen years. This shortage is due to various factors. The current nursing population is aging. Baby boomers are reaching their golden years. Fresh graduates from nursing schools will not be able to meet the demands of the healthcare industry. To meet the growing demands of the current and growing shortage of nurses in the United States, healthcare facilities must recruit nurses internationally. The US government has made it easier for nurses to migrate to the United States to meet this overwhelming demand. This opens an enormous opportunity for qualified, skilled, english speaking nurses in India to migrate to USA.
