Our Impact

Behind the Numbers: Why the PassportUSA program
from Health Carousel is mission critical

Helping the nursing shortage

How does thePassportUSA program continue to lead the industry in the ethical recruitment of global healthcare professionals while working to fill the massive (and growing) nursing shortage in the United States? Let us count the ways:

-We have recruited and nurtured a robust future pipeline of qualified healthcare professionals while avoiding recruitment in source countries challenged to staff their own facilities.

-By 2024, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the registered nurse labor shortage to reach 1.13 million. Concurrently, healthcare is projected to add more than 4 million jobs by 2026. Therefore, the number of RNs needed to accommodate this increase is expected to grow by 15% over that same period.

-86% of our global healthcare professionals are offered and accept full-time, direct employment at their client facilities. This alleviates a hospital's reliance on short-term contract labor and costly overtime to fill full-time RN staffing needs.

-PassportUSA program healthcare professionals receive an average review score of 4.6 out of 5. Our providers are consistently rated by U.S. clients as among the highest quality healthcare professionals in their facilities.

-More than 600,000 patients served in 2021 alone.

-We serve over 250 clients in nearly all 50 states. In addition to serving facilities in major metros, healthcare professionals in the PassportUSA program assist rural and urban healthcare organizations that need help amid our nation's critical nursing shortage.

-Elevating educational attainment with most of our candidates being conferred a BSN in nursing or an international equivalency evaluation — plus years of clinical experience. Whether your organization is seeking Magnet recognition or just trying to meet the ANA BSN initiative, the PassportUSA program by Health Carousel has you covered.
