The nurse shortage has occurred in the healthcare industry for many years and the trend will continue for the next decades. Foreign-educated nurses have not been a new issue to solve the nurse shortage for the past decades. However, foreign-educated nurses are still the minority in most healthcare facilities. This study uses secondary data from American Hospital Association Annual Survey Database collected in 2008 to examine whether facilities which hire foreign-educated nurses (including contracted or agency nurses) would increase to fill Registered Nurse vacancies or hire more foreign-educated nurses in 2008 comparatively in the 2007. The result showed that obtaining race and ethnicity information from patients, obtaining language information from patients, having a leadership development program, having a diversity strategy or plan, having leadership succession planning and having career development resources for administrators were significantly associated with whether facilities which hire foreign-educated nurses (including contract or agency nurses) would increase their hiring to fill RN vacancies or hire more foreign-educated nurses in 2008 compared to 2007.
