US RN -> Peru, Chile, Indonesia short term?

  1. If in 2 or 3 years from now my SO gets transferred (mining) to these countries for a year, what are the prospects of being able to work as a nurse there?

    I see no reply but did you ever find out more? I'm having lots of trouble getting information and nursing registration in Chile.

    I did a medical mission to Peru. The nurses are hired by the government. They told me they get short contracts (I think Noemi said 6 months) at which time they have to reapply but there is no guarantee they'll get re-hired. Talk about stress. This was in the public hospitals. I have no idea what it's like in the VERY few private hospitals.
