I would like to clarify first if there would be a diff. for a foreign nurse of say, 10+ experience and a new grad applying for the US or does everyone starts from the bottom?
Every foreign grad undergo new grad training or orientation in their respective hospital first right? If so, do foreign RNs still need so-called training for the US? There are facilities/hospitals in the Phil. doing these and are charging expensive fees. Some would say there training are accepted by US hospitals while others are honest enough to say that they don't guarantee that they are accepted but may help you prepare if your going to work in US. Although, I doubt it because the facilities here are not the same in US hospitals.
How about doctors who would be coming in as RNs would there be a issue or hold this against them? Would there also be a diff. if the MD-RN was a seasoned specialists for many years and a relatively new grad MD who switch to RN. I'm asking this because I keep hearing that some employers doesn't like to hire "veteran" MDs turned RNs because its tough to "re-train" them. I also keep hearing about some doctors being deported back to the Phil. for some reasons, why is that so?
Thanks. Hope to get everyone's honest opinions. You can PM your replies if you want.
