Abstract

212 Book Reviews Philippines rose exponentially from 17 to 140 between 1950 and 1970. Many were owned and operated by physicians who saw the profit margin in preparing nurses for export. Nurses werc an export product of mass production that became lucratjve local businesses and filled the nation; cofirs. Despite the mass migration of Filipino nurses, they did not gain visibility or celebrity, according to Choy, until the Speck massacre of 1966 and the Ann Arbor, Michigan, Veteran's Administratioo murders in 1975. In Parr 111, Choy chronicles these two hi- profile cases and wes that Filipino nurses, whether casr as rhc vjctimlhero or the perperramrldlain, wcrc subject ro racism and srercoryeing as Asian women. These prcvaiIing views were ampliGed in the late 11170s by Filipino nurses' pmr performance on State Board Test Pool hinatiom. k a resuIr, Filipino nurses, dong with other foreign nurses, werc requid to pass a two-part examination in nursing and English language competency prior to immigration. Administered by a newly created (1978) Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) , the examination aimed to *prore~t those foreign nurses who are not prepared for professional practice in this country against relomtion cosrs, persod disappointmenr, and
