    I know this may sound absurd but I really find it unfair that one of the biggest hospital in cbd did not aknowledge my overseas experience. They started me as an entry level yp2. Eventhough i am not after with visa sponsorship..
    Which country have you worked arah?

    Seriously? I have 5 years of experience as well, in the Philippines.. in recovery room, but they considered my experience. I am grade 2 level 5 RN here in VIC.

    That's why I am really frustrated about this...well the best thing that I can do is to find another hospital after 6 months.

    Hi thanks for the active input of experiences/opinions here, I myself am about to face these realities if ever I apply for a BP. what are my chances of landing a job after BP, considering i have 2 yrs in the ER and 2+yrs ICU, and a certified EMT-Basic? would it be better if I choose UK over AU? Thanks

    Expect things to be hard in the UK

    what do you mean by hard? living/working conditions? should I gamble on a BP in AU and take my chances? coz in the UK there are employers willing to sponsor working visas to nurses here (PH).

    UK is expensive and the NMC process is long and you can't work as a nurse until you have done the adaptation program which has now been mandatory implemented. Also I have seen some hospitals advertise that they are going within the EU for nurses but haven't seen many advertising for outside the EU as they have to prove to the government that they can not employer from within the UK and EU first. Also do you have experience because the NMC will not accept applications that do not have 1 year full time (or equivalent)

    oh ok, btw a recruitment company here are looking for nurses for their clients, what happens is that theses clients (british employers) select qualified candidates and they offer them working visas. as for the ONP, they said that we'll be earning while doing it. how long will it take for me to process the NMC by myself? the recruitment company could do it on my behalf because they have someone in the UK who can process it for me. I have 2 years ER exp, 2+years (and counting) Medical ICU and Im a certified EMT-Basic since Aug 2010. Thanks

    Yes, working visas. But not in any way you can apply for permanent visa in UK. I have friends who returned to the Philippines after their working visa expires because UK did not renew them.. I have met a lot of friends who transferred from UK to AU because the place isn't that stable now as compared to last 2008.

    Please triple-check the recruitment companies, especially if they are asking for money up-front and or their contracts are very restrictive and could cost you more money if you have to break it for whatever reasons, whether you do it or if they do it, yes, if they do it, because they don't do what they claim they can, next time you know you've wasted a lot of time and they want you to break it so that can file against you.

    Get recent references, ones you can actually talk to and make sure you can know they are telling you the truth and not some "employee" of the recruiting firm.

    I've had a couple of earlier kababayans that found out the UK employers will not be renewing them and coming home to the Phils which is even more bleak than the UK as you know.

    Ok thanks for the advice. With my experience ( 2+yrs medical ICU and 2 yrs ER), do you i can get a job in AU if i take the BP this year? I'd much prefer AU over the UK but I'm worried about the job security there. Especially that I have to loan almost 90% of my expenses from a lending company here. Thanks for your speedy replies

    Madness, IMHO loaning so much money from lending company, there are reports of nurses from Phillipines desperate, knocking down the door of the Phillipino embassy after not getting sponsorship and not having a return ticket home. Complaining about the loan companies back home.
    Australian law does not cover contracts taken out for loans in the Phillipines and the lawyers are agust that such big loans and such big percentage rates were given out with no guarantee of a job at the end.

    But ''God willing" you will be totally exempt from this. Though I am not in your shoes and there is always the chance you may get a job, but then how do you afford to live? Apparently the percentage is 50%!!! which equals about 1 and 1/2 times what you take out on loan.
