I support the petition

The need for the change of what is displayed on the nametag is seemingly evident in the xenophobic connotations that the different nametags imply. The nametag is currently designed to point out that a nurse is simply from another country. There is no evidence that there is a difference between a foreign nurse or American born nurse in terms of quality of care to the point that would require a need for the differentiation. This leads to the obvious need for the designation to change to "RN Applicant."
