    This is an amazing opportunity for the foreign graduates and especially because the requirements are not that inaccessible, it will also improve competitiveness on a wider level so overall it's a great way of improving the quality of medical service in our country. As a fresh master of science in nursing graduate I have high hope that this will turn out great.

    I hope that includes all the higher education forms. I've been doing some research on a master of public health and US seems like the best alternative for the students that also want recognition on the labor market after they graduate. It really is an amazing opportunity.

    When Obamacare kicks in and the Democrats finish taking over making all decisions about every aspect of our health care and health insurance, we are going to need more foreigner's, who mostly likely will accept lower pay as a condition of employment, to serve the increase in the number of people on Medicaid and the increase in the number of elderly advised to "just take a pill" rather than expect end of life health care.

    This bill will help graduating students find Jobs more easily, there are a lot of things needed to improve the quality of medical service in USA and the Bill 1595 is a great leap forward. I hope other ideas will come in our politicians minds and they will provide a better future for our children.

    It was about time for this to happen, this would make things easier for everyone. I wish I had this chance as a student, I did graduate in an US university but at the time I chose a different career path, I was tempted with the idea of working on your own schedule and now, after years of hard work I am finally there.
