I've always dreamed of working abroad - Page 2Register Today!
- Dec 5, '12 by nursedan28I realized finding a job here in the US is hard. Im a licensed nurse, have bls, acls training but still i cant find a nursing job. I dont know what to do.. im a foreign graduate and don't know anyone here in the US in the same field so i can't ask where will i start. Im so confused and frustrated. All i want is to be a nurse and now i can't. i need a mentor.
Dont lose hope lay, we worked hard to earn our degree, we must stay focused and dont stop till we reach our dream
- Hi nursedan28, you know what your not the only one experiencing that kind of scenario. Me too i'm also a nurse i have 2-3 years experience but still i can't find a stable job where i can save money for my future family. I want to go abroad but the thing is theres a lot of opportunities awaits us but they are so expensive. I'm planning to apply in Norway but i'm hearing lots of bad comments especially for us nurses who wants to earn and use our profession and now i can't decide weather i should go or not .. huh!! lets help each other dude/.
- [QUOTE=Silverdragon102;7041536]Going as a student doesn't mean she will be able to stay. The UK is going through a lot at the moment and many UK nurses are being made redundant or not replaced if they retire. News article in the BBC commented on over 60000 jobs lost or in peri
Hi just want to ask, do you have any idea about the program in Norway for Filipino Nurses??
- Quote from layfonalseifWhen I was still a student nurse, I've always told everyone that I'm going to be a nurse abroad. I had my hopes up that once I graduate and pass the Nursing Licensure Exam (NLE) I would finally be able to fulfill my dreams.
Unfortunately, after I graduated and became a professional nurse I found out that it was not actually that easy. To be able to work abroad I had to have the following:
1. 2 or more years working experience in the hospital
2. Be at least 22 or above of age
3. Various trainings, and
4. The most important thing is MONEY
So why am I unfortunate? Well it's obvious. I don't have any of the above. Or should I say "D. NONE OF THE ABOVE" which we always choose in the exam when there is no answer. I just passed the NLE last year and I still don't have a permanent job in a hospital to gain the required experience. Although I am working right now under the DOH Program "RNHEALS", I have learned recently that RNHEALS is not actually considered as work but just a training. I was so disappointed when I learned this because I was going to use this as part of my experience. Now I'm back to zero. Another problem is to be able to have trainings I'll need money which I have said that I don't have.
Now I'm losing hope of becoming a nurse in another country. I hope that somehow I would still be able to fulfill my dreams even though I still have "D. NONE OF THE ABOVE".
You know what we have the same scenario, i also want to go abroad and look for my luck and opportunity, But still right now I'm struggling looking for the best one .. too bad for us nurses, somehow have a li'l regret in taking up nursing course, but nothing i can do but rather to pursue it.Maybe this is not yet the right timing for us the Beginning is always the harder, don't give up bro lets help each other. if you want i'm planning to apply as auxiliary nurse in Norway, but requirements is we need to study there language please send me your reply asap if your interested
- Dec 6, '12 by dragon_ladyEven international nurses here in US are experiencing problems regarding application for NCLEX-RN because most of the state boards became strict with regards to international educated nurses.It was frustrating and devastating at first but life must go on and should continue to pursue our chosen careers.

- Dec 8, '12 by ariadnaI know one Spanish nurse working in Norway, she had to learn their language because English was not enough. I think it's easier to work in France,Uk or Belgium. I have a lot of spanish nurses friend there. But my dream is work in US
