Empire of Care: Nursing and Migration in Filipino American History by Catherine Ceniza Choy [in AsianWeek]

Empire of CaneSince the lifting of immigration laws in 1965, the U.S. medical work force has had huge support from growing numbers of Filipino-trained medical staff arriving on U.S. shores, especially Filipino nurses. Choy explores the notion that a legacy of U.S. imperialism has produced generations of nurses trained specifically in the ways of American medicine, who are then strongly encouraged to immigrate to the West, even to the detriment of their home medical system.
