Foreign Nurse Importation to the United States and the Supply of Native Registered Nurses
Patricia Cortes (au); Jessica Pan (au)
Importing foreign nurses has been used as a strategy to ease nursing shortages in the U.S. The effectiveness of this policy critically depends on the long-run response of native-born nurses. The authors examine how the immigration of foreign-born registered nurses (RNs) affects the occupational choice and long-run employment decisions of native RNs. They find evidence of large displacement effects -- over a 10-year period, for every foreign nurse that migrates to a city, between one and two fewer native nurses are employed in that city. The authors find similar results at the state level using data on individuals taking the nursing board exam -- an increase in the flow of foreign nurses significantly reduces the number of natives sitting for licensure exams in the states that are more dependent on foreign-born nurses compared to those states that are less dependent on foreign nurses. Some of the displacement effects could be driven by a decline in the perceived quality of the workplace environment. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
