    Hi hope you won't mind me asking the translation of a medical order with 1/52 or 2/24 etc written in it..i am still waiting for the result of my written exam and up to now im still curious about it in the english part..maybe there are 5 or so sentences with it so i leave them blank(hope i still answered the rest of the sentence anyway instead of just leaving it blank in case i might still got some few points haha..but i really thought at that moment i should translate the whole sentence perfectly to be able to get a single point)..

    Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. Im British but grew up in Hong Kong. I moved to New Zealand and while here I did my Bachelor of Nursing and became a registered nurse in 2009. I started working in theatre in public and now work in theatre in private. I have only ever worked in theatre and have no experience on the ward (I'm a theatre nurse through and through) I have seen the past exams but they are all ward based questions. Do I need to do these exams to work in theatre in a Hong Kong hospital? My husband and I are planning to move back to Hong Kong to be with family. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Goldeneyedeepu,
    Sorry for late reply and I hope you are doing well. I am not sure which agency you were contacting with. But both private and government hospital in HK requires their nurses has registration in HK. I know some private company are welcome those nurses trained from overseas. If needed to work in government sector, HK license and Cantonese speaking is a must requirement.

    Dear Meme,
    Have you ever contact Nursing council in HK? They will assess your credential and guide you how to complete the registration process. If they ask you to take the exam, i think they will ask you to have practical exam and written exam (MCQ) and you can answer both exam in English. However, if you need to work in government hospital/ facility, you have to able to speak Cantonese.
    But after you get your license, lots of private hospital has operation theatre jobs! no worries for job seeking indeed.

    Hi, I have contacted them, and I have visted their office in Hong Kong when I was there for a holiday and I was given very little information and no one would answer my questions or explain their processes to me. Very frustrating. Thanks for the reply

    Hi Becclkm,
    I m an RN from India. I have got Clinical as well as Academic Experience. I have shifted to Hong Kong a month ago. Checking for the registration and licencing system. The hours they have asked to complete the course is what i already have in my transcript. I wanted to know from you that in order to study or prepare for the exams, we need to refer books of NCLEX ;which seems to be available in Hong Kong Public Libraries. I am new to this place and searching for resources.
