Canadian advanced practice nurses and nurse anesthetists working at American hospitals have suddenly found that their work visas are no longer considered valid, after changes to the NAFTA work visa. Other types of nurses are unaffected. This was first reported by Canadian nurses who live in Ontario, but work in Michigan.

The nurses are being told they now have to apply for HB1 visas, which take longer, and cost more. One hospital in Michigan alone has reported that this affects 25 of their nurses.

The US government. Protecting you from the evil nurses trying to treat you or something.
