New Study Released on Unequal Treatment of Foreign-Educated Nurses in the U.S. Workplace
Led by Alliance Executive Director, Dr. Patricia Pittman, researchers at The George Washington University surveyed over 500 foreign-educated nurses working in U.S. health care organizations to learn about their perceptions of their treatment on the job. According to survey responses, forty percent of nurses say their wages, benefits, or shift assignments are inferior compared to their American colleagues, and almost 70 percent of nurses that were recruited by staffing agencies reported at least one discriminatory practice. This study will appear in the January issue of the American Journal of Nursing.
