im back again!
thank you for all the replies, youre all so kind to share!
anyway, i havent gone across a thread mentioning ireland as a place to work. Is it good n there? Im hearing a lot from it here in the Philippines. The doctor in the OR Im having my practicum is applying in Ireland.
Can you suggest other english speaking countries(which are not yet swarmed by applicants) that i can prospect for a job? Are the fees, exams, tests cheap enough for a poor Filipino like me to apply?
Can I be In that country immediately after i graduate? Do they need loooooong experience in my resume????
Thanks for all the help!

You cannot be in the other country working as soon as you graduate..........you have to sumbit a completed set of transcripts which are not available until after you graduate. You also have to go thru their immigration to be able to get papers which permit you to work. And this all takes time. Some countries require that you take your boards in your own home country first, others do not. Most will require that you complete a set of English exams. The UK requires that you do a 6 month preceptorship before being able to get your own license there, in addition to their other requirements.
So unfortunately there is no quick fix for working abroad. You must also pass the nursing exam in that country for licensure.
And of course, many want you to have experience first............
