[QUOTE=caav11;5710359]Hey! Dont give up hope! I just graduated in May and I`m looking for a new grad job abroad too! Although learning the country's native language will be a must, especially for nursing notes and report, there are sooo many International Hospitals and Clinica around the world where they only speak English, or it's the main language! Dont give up! You won't begin with an American fancy smancy nursing experience but you can always come back to the US later once you have experience. I'm from Boston adn nursing jobs
are slim there and I didn't even wanted to begin nursing in Boston to begin with. The point of nursing isn't to see who can get the better med surg backround or the best hospital, but to HELP OTHERS... NO MATTER WHERE IN THE WORLD. Believe me...many have crushed my dreams saying it isn't pratical...of course it is..it'll just be different than others!
It may be in a different language, may have differente duties, and will definitely pay less...but it all depends what you want out of this first year and the years to come...so think about it! P
I know that England, Ireland, and Canada have similar documentation in hospitals as us. Also, search for British and American hospitals in the world..they'd love to have an American-educated nurse! In Buenos Aires and Ecuador there are International Hospitals.
Just keep googling and networking and you'll find what you're looking for...even if everyone else says and I quote Start with Med-Surg, 1 year background bla bla bla...yea do that in another country while you're still young!
Hope this helps and write me back if you have any questions. Good look with your last months and be so proud! You worked yourbutt off![/QUOT
........and you have a job and work rights.....where...with a ADN internationally, May is a while back now. Did I miss that?
