Nine US states recruiting Filipino nurses

This just in from ABS-CBN Interactive:

At least nine US states are now "eagerly recruiting" Filipino nurses and other health professionals, the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines said.

Former senator and TUCP general secretary Ernesto Herrera identified the nine US states as California, Texas, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and New Jersey.

'Over 50 percent of 77.5 million American baby boomers—those born between 1946 to 1964—live in these nine states. This is why these states need health professionals by the thousands,' Herrera said.

I suppose nobody told Herrera about the retrogression, but this info is good to know, at least we know where the opportunities are.
