    FIU retraining program earns federal funds

    Florida International University's unusual effort to retrain foreign doctors for nursing work got a $1.4 million boost recently from the federal Labor Department, according to FIU.

    The program aims to help end state and local shortages of nurses. It started in 2002 with $500,000 in scholarships from Hospital Corp. of America, a for-profit hospital owner.

    The curriculum is designed for foreign doctors who aren't licensed to practice here but want to put their knowledge to work in nursing. By transferring prior medical school credits, they're able to get a bachelor's degree in nursing in 11/2 years, rather than the usual four.

    More than 1,000 candidates have applied.

    For more information, visit http://nursing.fiu.edu or call 305-919-5915.

    Nursing For Docs

    That may be fine for someone who went to an apprentice type MD program in an unregulated middle of nowhere, but I am an RN NOW and plan to got o SABA/MUA. I would be relly ticked off if I busted my hump in med school and USMLE to be offered an RN license. (maybe its because I already know what the job is like and how MDs can treat the nurses that they dont sleep with) Hmmmmm.....
