Between 1982 and 2008, our law firm immigrated over 10,000 foreign-born registered nurses to the US. It was estimated that by 2020, there would be a shortage of over one million RNs in the US.
Then, in the Fall of 2008, the economy of the US sank. Suddenly, the demand for nurses among the 100+ health care providers that we represent stopped abruptly.
Fast forward to 2015. One of our clients, a major national chain of hospitals, told us that they needed to hire over 500 nurses. Since that time, we have again immigrated large numbers of foreign-born RNs to the US at the request of dozens of other health care providers.
