    Suzanne - I'm not in Thailand, but I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your posts. Your grasp of immigration policy is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your expertise. BTW - when I was in the Navy and stationed in Japan, I spent a weekend at Pataya Beach - does that count??

    How many years ago were you over here? Pattaya is about 50 miles from me. I live right in the middle of Bangkok.

    suzanne,

    Why don't you go to the Phils and start teaching these nurses who will sit for tse/toefl exams? There was a review center in Baguio City, Phils for this exam that I attended years ago, they would benefit more if you give them info about immigration.

    Thanks for the offer, but I already have my own school in Bangkok, and
    YES, we can accept international students.

    I lived there for two years as a child spent 4th and 5th grades there. As we've discussed before I ache to the depths of my soul to go back. And I will, just a matter of time. I love Thailand. Love the people, the temples, the hot steamy weather, the food................

    (Been to Pataya beach many times.)

    Suzanne,
    Market your school to Vietnam. When I was there in 2002 the Ministry of health are looking for a good and not expensive ( not outside the asian region)english school that could teach english to their nurses. They (Vietnam) recieved many consultants in the health esp the hospitals improvement but most of them (NAM's) lack the language to communicate and makes work difficult for everyone.
    I think this will be very much beneficial to them as they can send there nurses to thailand with less expenses than to Australia or US.

    If you give me green light I can contact them and tell them about your school.

    You have done great.

    hello,

    I was wondering if you might get back to me, or leave me an email. I am just completing nursing school and have spent a couple of years teaching english in japan. I would be interested in any job which could help me stay in the region....

    Sincerely,
    Robert

    Your best bet would be to get some experence under your belt first, then you could also work for some of the NGOs that are covering the area.

    Also, teaching or lecturing at the nursing schools in the area, but again, you need American work experience first as an RN.

    Let em know if you need more specifics, and what your exact experience is.
