Frequently Asked Questions:

Is IML a domestic nurse staffing company or an international recruiter?

We are both and have realized that foreign-educated nurses can provide a substantial cost savings opportunity to hospitals.  IML started as an international recruiting division in order to provide one-stop shop of high quality Registered Nurses for hospitals who have both short-term nursing staff needs and long-term cost savings goals.

How does IML fill positions that other agencies can't?

IML is partnered with Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, to provide our international nurses with exclusive training edge like no others.  Our nurses are placed through a structured program with distinct completion schedules in order to have a more complete understanding of U.S. based hospital procedures and processes.  IML's exclusive pre-placement programs is first of its kind for foreign educated nurses.

How do you recruit foreign RNs with the right qualifications?

IML is focused on nurse education and how we recruit and place International Nurses.  We require our foreign-educated nurses to meet the same general licensure and educational requirements as domestic nurses.  We only accept nurses that has a 4-year nursing degree from accredited university and received exceptional scores on English and clinical exams before entering into our Vanderbilt Training Program.

For foreign RNs, when am I billed and how long is the process?

IML never charges fees to accepted foreign registered nurses for its services.  IML does not require accepted registered nurses to sign our Nurse Recruitment Agreement (NRA) until after they are accepted for employment by one of our clients and receives their employment contract. 

Under normal immigration conditions, a nurse can expect the process to take between 8-14 months to receive their Permanent Immigrant Visa (EB-3).  At the present time, all employment based visa processing is being slowed by Visa Retrogression, however I-140 forms (commonly known as Packet 1) are still being processed by the USCIS.  We are hopeful that Retrogression will be ended mid 2008.

What guarantees do I have from IML? 

Becase IML does not require our applicants to sign our Nurse Recruitment Agreement (NRA) or agency contract as it is commonly known, until we have secured the applicant a a job, they can feel comfortable in the fact that they are not being put in pool of nurses to be distributed to whatever opportunity comes available.  This assures the registered nurse that they have an employer and that IML's staff will be there to guide them through the process to expedite the start of their new career.
