Once again, a bill to address the dearth of qualified nurses in the U.S. has been proposed in Congress.
Posted on 10 May 2009
Last February 11, the Nursing Relief Act of 2009 (H.R. 1001) was introduced by Representatives John Shadegg (D) Jeff Flake (R) and Ed Pastor (D).
The legislation proposed to create a new category of non-immigrant W visas for registered nurses with an annual limit of 50,000.
