    "pinay" nurses are know throughout the world for being as a group a very loving caring bunch.' ? and.......so are all other nurses in the world.......ALL and I mean ALL have 'bad' apples but on the whole......

    ALL nurses are thought of highly as a caring group of people in Australia anyway, there is never referral as the Filipino nurses are better caring than any other nurse by the public, a nurse that a patient found to impress them will be identified as Filipino or Indian or English or Canadian or Aftrician or Kiwi or the local or the red head or blonde head or the nurse with the big nose or the yankee nurse or the nurse blah blah blah, but never this generalisation that nurses from the Phillipines are generally identified more caring than any other nurse from any other country or from an Australian nurse.

    I have never heard this generalisation till a joined allnurses and I have been nursing a lonnnng time.

    sorry hijacked this thread...but you did mention 'THROUGHOUT the world' which are strong words, I always wonder why this generalisation is constantly repeated as it is a 'crack' at all other nurses that are not from the Phillipines, all working under their own countries banner as nurses,who are doing a great job.

    I think this type of comment has caused some resentment throughout the nursing world, and I have often seen these type of comments of the same genre made by some nurses from the (Phillipines) country as well.

    I have had the privilege of working with many nurses from overseas, and respect many, many of them including some from the Phillipines. I have developed my 'trade' and they have challenged my way of thinking at times and have taught me many, many things, but no country supplies 'more caring nurses or more knowledgable more than any other.

    YAY!!!! to ALL Nurses, especially those working in Japan and New Zealand and in Queensland and those involved in floods and highly regarded those in wars, that have been and done their job, beyond the call of duty with very much care that has not waivered.

    hey i wasn't trying to offend or step on any toes.

    I have however had others that are in the health care field tell me that they are very impressed with pinay nurses. also a friend of mine fell off of a 2 story house roof & damaged his back in 14 places for 3 nights he screamed until he couldn't scream any more & the only thing that seemed to help any was the 2 pinay nurses holding his legs up in the air all night long. he said he was very impresses with their performance. after 3 days they decided to operate & install two 8 inch long titanium rods in his back which did a lot to help but he will never be 100% again. however he can walk short distances & work a little. so due to the information i received i thought they were highly regarded through out the world. but maybe only a few select areas are lucky enough to be blesses with these super nurses

Fair dinkum!!!!! Yeah okay....you win blah

    i see that you are very hostile towards foreign nurses
    what exactly is it about them that you don't like???
    maybe you are worried that they are
    1. younger than you?
    2. prettier than you?
    3. smarter than you?
    4. better overall than you?
    i just hope your prejudges don't contribute to a negative working environment for your foreign coworkers


    have a fine day
