Nurse Profile

Our nurses are primarily from the Philippines, have been educated in English, are typically BSN-prepared and have 2 to 10 years of recent experience in a variety of specialties.

  • All nurses have green cards, providing them the right to work in the U.S. indefinitely.
  • Every nurse has been well-screened and has been successfully interviewed and vetted by one or more practicing U.S. nurse managers.
  • All nurses have passed Med Surg and Specialty Nursing competency exams by Prophecy.®
  • Before their arrival at client hospitals, Passport USA puts all RNs through its Nurse Readiness Program, including a one-week, one-on-one precepted, U.S. hospital clinicum.

Program Basics

  • Clients use Passport USA to: (1)Displace chronic and costly contract labor; (2) Fill positions that cannot be effectively staffed through conventional sources; and (3) Add diverse, experienced and highly-motivated nurses to their staff.
  • Passport USA acts as the nurses’ initial employer. Passport USA pays the nurses’ wages and provides their benefits (including health insurance).
  • Passport USA’s nurses initially work as contractors to hospitals before converting to direct hospital employment.


  • Passport USA presents clients with an opportunity to interview nurses immediately.
  • Selected registered nurses arrive in 4 to 9 months after interview.
  • Passport USA charges clients a regular-time hourly rate (usually $5 to $10 per hour more cost effective than alternative sources of contract/agency/registry/travel labor — depending on local prevailing wages) only for those nurses that the hospital decides to retain.
