What path should i take?

  1. Im a new grad nurse here in the Phil. and im having a dilemma wheter to take the boards here or try my chances at nclex and work abroad. i considered skipping the local boards here due to the competition and lack of work available.
    i also don't have yet any work experience with me. will it hinder me from landing a job in the US.? or they are going to train you there if they hire you already.? I feel ashamed to work in the US without any work experience but if they can give it to me thats a plus.! thanks in advance for those who will reply more power to this site.!

    The job market is getting tough for nurses in many areas of the US. If you are asking if you should come here, I would do some research first as to see what the demand is in any area.(Your thinking of) As to experience, I don't know if boards of nursing take that in to consideration when accepting applicants from nursing schools outside of the country. Again, I recommend contacting some and see what their policies are. Good luck

    As to places hiring you with no experience AND being from another country, - I think if it were just one or the other you would have a better chance. Enough new grads from local schools to choose from. Experience would give you an advantage.
