When you think about bringing foreign nurses to the States, many first think about either European Nurses or Philippine Nurses. It is a fact that Philippine nurses have been one of the largest segments in terms of foreign nurses coming to the States to work.
This population segments continues to rise and the importation of foreign nurses from Philippines continues to rise while the importation of European Nurses continues to fall.
