Foreign nurse here...

  1. 0 Hi.I wonder how you feel and what your thoughts are about the presence of foreign nurses from anywhere now working in your country...
    I am an RN from the Philippines but I also have my license in Missouri though I was not able to work there at all. Soon, I will be going back to U.S. to work..Im so excited about it.
    I really would like to hear to read your responses.

    Like foreign nurses just fine. Don't like the idea of recruiting them here to solve our nursing shortage. There are better ways to adress the shortage and I don't think it is right to lure away nurses from poorer countries making their shortage worse. As long as they speak English and know how to nurse I have no problem with them

    Thank you so much for your replies. Im new to this site and Im really glad that you spent time to post a reply.
    Im glad, that you get to work with people from my country and fine it ok. A lot of Filipino nurses are in the process of migrating to your country for work. There are a lot of hiring this time. I guess what lures most of us to leave home and work
    is the fact that we get better pay, a lot more.., in your country. At this time, we don't have a shortage in nurses in the Philippines. As a matter of fact there are still a lot of unemployed nurses here.
    I hope when I finally get to set foot in a hosp. I will get to be with nice poeople like you who welcomes newcomers. I have read some stories about
    problems in work re: newcomers not being "welcome"
    so much and wont get help easily...that's what Im scared of.
    If its not too much to ask,can you advise me on how / where to get a refresher course and training
    of different skills.We will be staying in Houston, Texas. Id really appreciate it.
