THIS STORY made me angry.… What has happened to American education? We have just learned that a large number of 8th graders are nowhere near proficient in math or reading! And this article I linked is about nursing; we haven’t even schools enough to train nurses who want to go into the industry!
Instead of training our own nurses, we bring them in from overseas…I can’t tell you how many friends I have who’ve complained that every nurse in a very large hospital was foreign, and not that nice and, frankly, not so good. Most good doctors will recommend a relative stay with the patient, or hire someone to advocate for the patient while they’re in the hospital. WHY? Is that a good change? I don’t think so. Mostly Philippina nurses are in California hospitals, yours, too? This isn’t against the Philippinas, but American nurses have quite some stories to relate about that situation and they’re not all good.
We can’t educate American-born nurses! We don’t have the schools large enough and we have a huge shortage of nurses!
AMERICA IS LOSING SO MUCH.
