Present image of Filipino nurses abroad

  1. 0
    Hi! I'm a Filipino nurse. I just wanna know the present image of Filipino nurses in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand...

    based from related literature online, it seems that the younger generation of Filipino nurses abroad are considered inexperienced, unfamiliar with the latest hospital equipments, not fluent in English, and worse, falsifies documents

    I just wonder, is it really possible for a nurse (regardless of country of origin) without experience, doesn't know English, and with fake documents to be able to work in an English-speaking country? If yes, how? (just kidding lol!)

    How are nurses being treated abroad? Are they being racially discriminated or are their Filipino exotic beauty addictive to Caucasians? (please excuse the disturbing nature of the latter query)

    Are nurses in the above mentioned countries really filthy rich? [compared to doctors and lawyers in the Philippines (I know the comparison is inappropriate, but I used these professions to get a clearer picture of the buying power of nurses abroad)]

    Is it easy for Filipino nurses to get hired in hospitals/nursing homes/mental institutions/community in the previously mentioned countries?

    Being Filipino doesn't have to be the defining quality of the nurse, just because the country of origin is the Philippines. Not every nurse coming from the Philippines is inexperienced, doesn't speak or write English correctly, or have falsified documents or qualifications. Just be an individual and take responsibility over gaining and updating your knoweldge and skills. It's hard to look past our collectivist culture as Filipinos but it can be done.

    I believe this is the same poster who says she's ashamed to be a Filipino nurse?

    Clinical Instructors and lecturers with no hospital experience? - Page 8- Nursing for Nurses
    No. 76

    Referencing the post on the link above, as well as the inanities/absurdities (even some vulgarity) written in this post, the question begs: what is this person trying to prove? What's the point in posing a question, when you seem to have the answers all figured out (that is, judging from your other post)? This forum is for professional people whose aim is to help each other navigate the challenges facing nurses in different parts of the world. It is disrespectful to weigh in on it any other way.

    Besides, you can't change the geography of your birth, you know. Neither can you change the color of your skin. You will do all Filipino nurses a great favor by not identifying yourself as one of us, then bad-mouthing us on the next breath. That simply shows poor breeding, never mind unpatriotic or un-nationalistic.

    Feigning innocence where it does not exist, only adds to one's culpability. If one can't or won't accept criticism, but can and will dish it out so freely to the entire Philippine nursing profession, then one should just keep one's peace .

    Spewing unkind generalizations disrespects the memory of the people who worked hard, so that the profession of nursing in the Philippines will earn world recognition. True, the Reign of Greed somehow tarnished our reputation. So many graduated, even those who should never have been nurses in the first place. Case in point..... ???

    Despite that, there are still schools that to this day, uphold the high standards that the founders intended for the profession.

    They did not cease to exist, only got outnumbered by places that offered quick fixes.

    As you are asking is it possible to work in one of these countries by breaking the law it is most definitely not within the interests or scope of the site to answer this question

    You have acknowledged that this question is inappropriate and therefore will understand that it a professional nursing board is not the place to ask or get this answered

    Take a browse through the forum you will find this question has been answered time and time again, most of the countries that you have mentioned are having difficulties in getting jobs for their own nurses, so no it's not easy to get hired.
