Support for NOT requiring derogatory titile - "Foreign Nursing Graduate"
I am a retired physician with both private and USAF experience. I have been a medical director of medical centers and commanded USAF hospitals. I have had a great experience with all kinds of medical personnel. I feel strongly that once the US qualifications have been met for both training and licensure that to required "foreign" in a title is absolutely derogatory in many ways. I have seen many better "foreign-trained" nurses than many trained in the US. Just when the US is trying to be seen as non-discriminatory in race, age, gender and sex we do not need another category of "foreign".
