    You will still need to meet requirements. Can not see how making you a resident would change that

    @mybabydar you can work as an assistant nurse but not an RN you still need to meet the requirements which is passing the written and practical part of the exam... Good luck

    hi gizgurl,I'm a Filipina registered nurse in Hong Kong and also a HK resident, I pass both the written & practical exam in first take, I know it's a hard exam, I use the NCLEX book to prepare for the written exam. Anyone is allowed to take the Nursing exam in HK, you don't need to be a HK resident. Job options maybe limited for you due to the following reason. 1. You need to be an RN Nurse first 2. You need to be a HK resident 3.You need to speak cantonese 4.You need to have experience.
    Having said that it's not totally impossible, if you are up to the challenge.

    Below are tips I can offer you:
    1. Take the R.N. exam in HK, (that will give you an edge to other foreign nurse)- registration deadline is every november, your chances to get a job & visa sponsor is higher if your an RN.
    2. try to get some working experience in the philippines, obstetric experience is in high demand here, choose a field that have less interaction to patient (communication wise, since you can't speak cantonese) eg, renal dialysis (pay is really good), endoscopy, radiology,surgery.
    3. I suggest you get some experience in more than one field eg 6 months surgery 6 months radiology so you have more options
    job wise.

    4.Clinic Nurse is another option for you ( but quite hard to get a job if your not an RN & non HK resident)
    5.Take Master's degree or Phd degree in research and education (so you can work in the university)
    6. certification on First Aid and basic life support & venepuncture would give you an added edge.

    God bless, I hope this helps, there are plenty of Jobs here for RN Nurses, search carefully. I always believe in miracle, pray hard.
