For Foreign-Born Healthcare Professionals
For any US immigrant, becoming acculturated is a long journey. As part of that process, adults need to become employed and productive members of the society for their own and their new country’s well-being.
In the case of the professionally trained newcomer, who is seeking employment in the field in which s/he has achieved a particular social status, personal satisfaction and self-confidence may be difficult to do without assistance.
Thanks, Angela! You were just the person we needed!

Former Dean, Phillips Beth Israel School of Nursing
