[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] In recent years, Chinese immigrant nurses have become the fastest growing foreign educated nurse group in United States (US). A literature review of nursing shortage, immigration, demands of immigration (DI), and immigrant nurses yielded no reports specifically examining the DI of Chinese nurses. The purpose of the proposed study was to identify and evaluate the levels of demands upon Chinese nurses who immigrate to the US and work in health care settings. The study also examined the relationship between the DI and length of stay in the US. A descriptive correlational study design was used. The DI scale and a demographic sheet were used to collect data. Participants were recruited through personal contacts and network sampling. Research packages were distributed to potential participants in person or by mail. The results showed Chinese immigrant nurses have high DI. There were significant negative relationships between the DI scores and the length of stay in the US. Study findings were compared to previous research on immigration. Recommendations for future research are included. The result provide evidence of Chinese nurses' DI. Understanding of the DI of Chinese nurses will help health care agencies address the challenges to transition among this population of nurses. The long term goal is to use an evidence based approach to set up adaptation programs to help this nurse population ease the transition to the US health care system and provide continued support to prevent burnout and career turnover.
