Clinic Nurse or Enrolled Nurse

  1. 0
    Hi there. I'm a nurse with two years experience here in the Philippines. I recently applied in two agencies specializing in singapore employment since my parents are Permanemt Residents there. I applied as an Enrolled NUrse at thr first agency since Im 1 year short of experience. (Sg Employers want their foreign nurse to have 3 years exp before sponsoring them for the SNB exam and subsequently hiring them when they pass). The salary ranges from 1150 to 1300. And fortunately, I was among the shortlisted applicants and that I could take the interview and exam at a scheduled date. Temporarily scheduled on the last week of December. The other agency gave me two options. I would be a clinic nurse earning 1500sgd monthly, no food or housing allowance (it's an urgent hiring btw)...or I could wait a liitle more for the hospital employement but again because I only have 2 years exp my chances are, lets just say not that good. So that just leaves with two opportunities - the clinic nurse and the enrolled nurse.I'd readily take the clinic nurse position but I'm not sure if I can advance to a staff nurse position from there or would the enrolled nurse position at a hospital give me a better chance at it.Any insight would be very much appreciated..

    just get the enrolled nurse position then after your contract you can apply for the SNB exam,some of my friends did like that...

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'm aware that I can take the exam after the contract. but how about the clinic nurse? Can I also take the exam after? I just want to explore possibilities. Thanks..
