- 2Oct 30, '08 by JBudd GuideIn the USA, nursing is considered one of the most trusted professions.
Admittedly, most people don't really understand what we do....
but the polls on which professionals people trust has nurses at or close to the top.
We vent a lot on these boards about the lack of respect, but that is just that, venting. On the whole when people hear you are a nurse, they respect you. (And want free advice! :chuckle) Or say, I could never do what you do!
- 1Oct 30, '08 by vss04We do have a lot of doctors from other countries, maybe not so many nurses, although that should mean a lot of positive things for nursing in Sweden, as a profession, I think. (To be honest, during the last decades there´s been an increasing number of foreign nurses too).
One difficult issue is the language of course, some say swedish is just as hard to learn as, for example chinese. I don´t know if that´s quite correct
I don´t have any specific advices for the moment. Maybe you can contact some swedish consulate or embassy and they can help you further.
I´ll give you the adress to the university of my town, maybe a letter to them can sort things out for you:
Högskolan i Gävle
S-801 76 GÄVLE
Wish you all the best,
