Perhaps, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but occasionally names actually mean things. Or at least they used to.
Yes. So, over the last year and a half there were a couple of challenges. One of those would have been some travel bans that were in place. Another area that hurt us from bringing in some supply temporarily were that some of the embassies were shut down due to the different spikes that might have been going on around the world. More recently, we’ve seen some more positive legislation. So kind of at that state department level we’ve seen the states prioritize employment thesis [ph] to the top. So that way we bring in international nurses as well as their families into the United States. Its probably not enough especially with the amount of demand that we have out there. Our clients are asking us about international nurses just about everyday from a majority of our clients, But the things like making more visas available would be a good legislative change that would help bringing it even more supply to the United States.
The company in question is AMN Healthcare. AMN stands for American Mobile Nurses, but good luck finding that out from their site.
AMN Healthcare is listed as the country’s largest health care staffing firm. Its impact is pretty significant.
Results show that AMN Healthcare has the largest overall market share (12%) and ranks as the largest travel nurse firm, the largest allied healthcare staffing firm, the third-largest locum tenens firm, and the ninth-largest per diem nurse staffing firm.
But you can see why AMN is jettisoning the American part. Much like HIAS jettisoned the Hebrew part.
AMN Healthcare the nation’s leading total healthcare talent solutions company, has acquired Connetics USA, an international nurse and allied recruitment company that specializes in nursing and allied professional direct hire recruitment and placements.
Connetics USA helps healthcare professional candidates through the immigration and licensure processes to their arrival in the United States.
Why not just replace the ‘A’ with an ‘I’?
