The national nursing shortage and high nurse turnover rates in the United States have been negatively affecting the quality of health care services since providing optimal patient care requires fulfilling necessary standards including nurse-to-patient ratios. The failure to maintain the mandated nurse-to-patient ratio not only will cause a penalty for a health care facility, but also will compromise the quality of health care service to the patients. Amerindo, an international nurse recruitment agency, intends to address these challenges by supplying qualified internationally educated nurses to the U.S. Amerindo will provide three levels of nursing vocations from Certified Nurse Assistants, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Registered Nurses, for all nursing domains including pediatric nursing, geriatric nursing, medical surgical nursing, maternity nursing, and psychiatric nursing.
Amerindo’s mission is to be a trusted connector between internationally educated nurses and health care facilities in Southern California, by supplying qualified nurses with two years of initial employment contract. With the unique initial employment contract and several additional qualities, Amerindo distinguishes itself from other health care recruitment agencies. Moreover, Amerindo helps the health care facilities maintaining their nurse-to-patient ratio, and reducing the nurse turnover rate. Thus, in general, Amerindo helps improving health care access and quality.
