Bloggings On Nurse And Allied Health Immigration

DEMAND FOR NURSES RISING IN US

by Chris Musillo

Nursing demand in the US has been negligible in the last few years. Fewer nurses have been retiring and facilitiesí nursing needs have been stagnate. As a result facilitiesí demand for nurses has been flat since the start of the recession. A recent survey says that it appears that this dormant period for nursing needs is over.

As demand for nurses rises, medical practices are paying more to hire them, UBM Medicalís Physicianís Practice 2012 Staff Salary Survey suggests.

Nurses and nurse managers saw average salary increases of 4 percent and 12 percent. Registered nurses posted a 6.6 percent vacancy rate in 2011, up from 4 percent in 2010. Hospitals had 950 RN job openings at the end of 2011in one market, Cincinnati. Trends are likely similar across the US.

Foreign-trained nurses traditionally filled these needs but the twin-killing engine of retrogression and the recession has decimated the ranks of foreign-trained nurses.

Will the rebounding economy lead to a sensible immigration policy for soon-to-be badly needed nurses? That remains to be seen.
