  • Nurse recruitment

    Has anyone looked into doing this? Seems to me that it would be a profitable field to get into. I am sure that it is laden with issues and problems.

        There're plenty of them already. Just like plenty of agency in India recruiting for H1/L1 visas. Go to India for programmers, go to Philipines for nurses.

          you have to have enough funds to cover their immigration process. It's an employee's market and they'll go for recruiters who will cover all their expenses. you'd probably be looking of spending $6,000 for each one.

            And, unlike programmers, nurses need to pass exams and be licensed here.

            Ditto, teachers.

              yup, but the good thing is you'd be reimbursed by the hospital who will hire your recruit and that's where the real money is.

                But doesn't the hospital then pay 10k for each nurse?

                I was not thinking of recruiting in the Philipines as I think the quality of education (especially hard sciences) is arguably better in the former soviet block.

                It seems the basic process is credential evaluation; immigration paperwork and then placement.

                The problem I see for a non lawyer is overcoming the unauthorized practice of law thing. This is just a way for lawyers to protect their monopoly but it is real and should be feared. I guess this means I would have to team up with a firm.

                  it's not about who's got better education but rather who's got a better chance of having your education recognized here in US. Nurses in the Philippines and in some countries are easily recognized because they pattern their curriculum here in US so during evaluation they normally pass with flying colors. Not to mention they speak better english which is important since part of the criteria in recruiting nurses is passing an english exam and its required by immigration

                    Good point.

                    I think there exists an industry bias agains Filipino nurses. I say this from my own personal survey of healthcare professionals. Thats not to say they won't be accepted (there is great demand for nurses) I just KNOW that american healthcare professionals think they are superior to the rest of the world. Someone with strong math and science skills can easily impress another healthcare professional

                      If you really want to profit on the increase need of health service, why not team-up with a 5 star hospital in Asia? Much cheaper service and outstanding quality.
                      Got to overcome the insurance hurdle though, but most healthcare plan or ppo/hmo has out of state clauses.

                        what do you mean by "team up"? Are you talking about recruiting patients?

                          nope, send the patient overseas. You'll be surprised at the cost difference.

                            You're right, I've met a lot of American nurses and they have these inherent belief that they're smarter and better trained than foreign ones. And they're more interested in managerial work too than the actual nurse work by the way. So i guess it will impresss them if you have managerial or administrative skills. But one scary trend is we're actually seeing a lot of nurses from the philippines who are actually doctors or surgeons who goes back to study nursing to be able to come here in US. While they do truly impress the hospitals and american workers here no doubt, it also creates a brain drain from countries where they're sorely needed.

                              I'll play the Devil Advocate here and ask why is that a problem for USA if more people with advance degree and knowledge immigrates to here? Those are the kind of immigrants thats USA need. The best interest of Philippine or India,etc is not the best interest of USA.
