AILA offers several helpful tips on how to successfully navigate the world of newspaper public service announcements (PSAs), including: how to learn the newspaper's policy on PSAs, who to work with at the newspaper, how to buy ad space, and how to meet ad deadlines.

Dear Editor:
It is a matter of great pleasure to have an opportunity of reading Ali Alexander's letters after a very long gap. I sincerely thank him very much for his desirous of sharing ideas, opinions on immigration matters with us. I fully agree with his letter (10/16/06 ID) stating that "many American students these days are interested in nursing careers, but colleges and universities are not rushing to provide the necessary slots". It's widely known to all that there has been a great shortage of nurses in the US for years, but instead of increasing seats of nurses in the US colleges and universities, Congress created H-1A and H-1C visas that allowed hundreds of thousand of foreign nurses to enter the US to work. In addition, The appropriations bill was signed into law on May 11, 2005 by President Bush allowing 50,000 foreign nurses to come to the US to work. It cannot be understood that while American students are very desirous of studying nursing, on the other hand foreign nurses are coming to the US to work. The US government does not seem to be trying to meet the shortage from its own internal sources. A great number of US citizens and green card holder students who have been trying to get admission to city community colleges for Registered Nursing (RN) programs, have been waiting for more than two years for their number to come to register to the required classes. Concerned US authorities have not paid any attention to increase the number of seats for Nursing programs. It is certain that if the number of seats for this RN program are increased at all US city community colleges, we will not have to import nurses from foreign countries. Additionally, this will also help reduce unemployment in the US.
