In the United States, the impending million nurse shortage brings to light the ethical and economic issues concerning the recruitment of internationally educated nurses (IEN). Within the last quarter of the twentieth-century, the Philippines has established itself as the preeminent sending country of nurses, and unsurprisingly, Filipino nurses constitute the majority of the U.S. IEN workforce.

Join the Philippine Nurses Association of Virginia for an educational program on the rich history of Filipino nurses in Virginia, which showcases a photo exhibition and oral history film screening followed by a Q&A panel of the participants.

This free, public event is made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.
