So a friend recently traveled to Bermuda, and was told that RN's are in demand over there... You can get a 3 year working contract, plus they pay for your apt right next to the hospital, etc. I understand that many places do this, not just Bermuda... As a graduate nurse waiting patiently to take my
, how does one even get started working abroad? Do any of these places even consider graduate nurses, or do you need experience as an RN first?? And if not, where do I even begin...?
I'm young, and I want to travel--Working abroad as an RN would really satisfy me on so many levels... And any information on this topic is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I know you are aware of the retrogression in US that produces a long queue for NCLEX holders. Before taking NCLEX, I suggest you look around first for opportunities in other country.
Australia (as testified by Lammy01) is another good option. Nevertheless, you can't jump to work there out once. They have a process to go through and the most important of which is the IRON program or some call it 'gap" program. You have to take the 12 weeks course in Australia after receiving approval from their nursing board.
