Change requirement for name tag from foreign nurse graduate to RN Applicant

I do not see any good reason why an international graduate nurse should be designated as “foreign nurse graduate” on their name tags when he/she has met all the same requirements, education and clinical training as a US graduate nurse. As a Philippine educated nurse, I had to pass the TOEFL exam also prior to taking the NCLEX. RNA should be sufficient. Thank you.
