TO UNDERSTAND internationally qualified nurses (IQNs), there are two seemingly contradictory things people in the host country must remember, Monina Hernandez believes.
Under the terms of the agreement, GTCR, the Chicago-based private equity firm and owner of IQN, purchased the vendor management solution software and related assets of Beeline from Adecco Group, a Fortune Global 500 company and provider of workforce solutions based in Zurich-Glattbrugg, Switzerland.
The profile of newer IQN additions to the Nursing Council register shows they are younger and more ethnically diverse than the longer established workforce.
Not least is that IQN registrations are occurring in an environment where new graduate New Zealand educated nurses are struggling to find jobs.
iSCSI avoids this complexity because it uses an IQN (iSCSI qualified name) on each virtual machine that can be mapped directly to its storage.
Each iSCSI host is identified by a unique iSCSI qualified name (IQN), analogous to a Fibre-Channel world-wide name (WWN).
The company’s first two cafes at its Solihull and Acton offices are designed to give all employees – not just those who use PCs iqn their day-to-day work – to enjoy free Internet and Intranet access.
It can be daunting moving to a new country, a new culture, away from family and support networks, to work as an internationally qualified nurse (IQN) or health worker.
Racism, aggression, resentment and lack of trust (in the adequacy of IQN training) were also described, while Shields and Price (2002), again writing in the UK, found that 64 percent of IQNs reported racial harassment from patients, and 40 percent harassment from colleagues.
NZNO organiser Celeste Crawford, who has been working with a group of Radius IQN caregivers, is pleased they are now being paid at the right level.
