    You might want to check with NKTI in East Ave. Q.C. They offer good training in Dialysis.

    These dialysis trainings are not credited for work abroad. Personally know people who have gone through this particular training. One applied for the US and it wasn't credited and told him to undergo another training w/ them for free. The other applied in an agency here in the Phil. that seeks this particular position for work abroad and said that training alone will not help and they want actual experience instead of 2 years.

    So, unless you are going to work as a dialysis nurse here in the Phils. for some time we do not recommend this "training". Doesn't make sense to go to these trainings if somebody already says that it isn't credited in the states and that the dialysis centers there would want to give you free training regardless if you have experience or not.

    This is exactly the same thing re: PN schools in the Phil. They will keep saying that you can work abroad w/ the PN degree but it's totally false.

    Any training in a specialty area that you get in your country will not be acceptable in the US for consideration of training in that area, unless you have significant paid work experience in that area.

    Save your money...............

    having a work experience will help you boost your work skills and confidence. however, if you can find a job there where you can actually get paid, that is much, much better. having a work experience always adds bulk in resume. many hospitals in the u.s. don't require work experience, but some do accepts applications from nurses who have at least a year of work experience.:wink2:

    im "training" right now in a med/surg ward. it's been a month and i think it helped me be confident in dealing with patients and i learned more medications (which is the greatest part of it, i think). this training may not help that much as people say when i work abroad in the future but i cant deny that i have been better compared to how i was before this.

    i was able to handle difficult patients, especially those who are doctors, or nurses... mmm i learned how to manage my time especially if there are lots of patients in our floor. i also learned how to organize my work... especially when administering medications to patients that are due to be given at the same time... stuffs like that..

    Please change your thinking; having a nurse or a physician has a patient should never be an issue at all, who ever is your patient is your patient, and what their profession is should not influence your care for them.

    Working on a nursing unit in the Philippines is exremely different from many other countries, such as Canada and the US. The biggest issue will be medications and idioms that are used in every day speech. Remember that most of the medications in the US will be called by a different trade name than what you learned in school. You will not have thirty patients in a hospital, so med passes will be much smaller.

    Working on a unit there, where you are getting paid is one thing, but to do a training program that you must pay for and will not give you credit in the US is a complete waste of time, it will not be credited for anything here.

    Sory but that is not correct............there are new grads that get positions overseas all of the time, even in the US. Unless you have two years of experience, it really will not affect anything.
