    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.
