Petition to change nametag from Foreign Nurse Graduate to Registered Nurse Applicant. As a foreign n

As a foreign nurse graduate myself, I have experienced how a simple nametag can affect anyone else. This is a form of labeling which will escalate to bullying, under appreciation and discrimination. Discrimination is illegal as it is mostly the reason for rejection, denial of promotions and preventing any individual to better themselves. Therefore, I vote to have the nametag changed to "Registered  Nurse Applicant " to give credit to the nurses entering our profession and helping to improve it.
