Among the biggest group of OFWs are nurses. In recent years, even doctors have been training to be nurses. Why is it that a country like the Philippines with a relatively great need for trained medical professionals sends so many of its nurses to work in wealthier countries?

Catherine Ceniza Choy tackles this question by looking at the unique relationship between the professionalization of nursing and the twentieth-century migration of Filipinos to the United States.

Empire of Care is the first book-length study of the history of Filipino nurses in the United States and brings to the fore the complicated connections among nursing, American colonialism, and the racialization of Filipinos
