How to be come a nurse in singapore? - Page 13Register Today!
- Mar 24, '11 by mar25dksgHello Everyone..,
This forum is interesting and insightful. I am writing to get some idea with regards to my issue.
I am a Singapore PR thru my SG wife. I am a male RN from Denmark with years of experience and I would like to get a job as RN in Singapore on a part time or contract basis.
However, to get a job as RN requires to have a Singapore Nursing Board registration. I would appreciate advise from senior/experienced RN in SIngapore whether I can submit for RN registration at SNB without singapore employment first. I am currently working as RN in DK hospital.
Thank you and hope to hear feedbacks..

- Apr 4, '11 by lisa.sI would like to se a reply to TJensen's question. On my research on Singapore, you can work as an RN for up to two years before having to be accredited directly by the SBN. On job postings, there is a category for "Senior staff nurse". Could anyone speak to who can qualify for this position? I am looking at working in Singapore in 2012 while my husband does his expat job based out of Singapore. I am currently practicing pediatrics in a large hospital in the USA. Thanks, Lisa S

Filipino Nurses, think about it hundreds of times before you succumb to the temptation of working as a nurse in Singapore. The peope in the agency would have a lot of sweet words and very inviting stories to tell, just so you would sign up and pay them money and you can go to Singapore to cry and regret your decision like what happened to our batch. Nobody told us that we will be working like animals and be treated like maids instead of a nurse.
And its not that easy to upgrade yourselves, like studying to upgrade and all that, you need to get recommendations to go and study to upgrade and you will be banded for years in the hospital ( means you have to work in the hospital for a certain period of time, example 7 years for studying for 2 years to upgrade yourself because they were paying the course for you.) If you decide to study and pay it yourself, good luck with that, it is very expensive to study there and your salary as a nurse is just enough to cover your accommodation cost, food and bus fares. And if it happens that you have a lot of money to shoulder your own cost to study, I doubt it if you have time to go to school or study your homework after work, because you will feel too tired to even eat after the very tiring work.
So, here is my advice. If you really wanna go and work in Singapore because you don't believe me and you think I am just blabbing my mouth, you can go and taste the bitter pill of it yourself. Just make sure that you have enough money brought with you to pay back the hospital if after a week or two, you realized that you went to hell and you want to bail yourself out. Yes, you need to pay the hospital if you resign without finishing your contract of two years. Terrible, isn't it?
hi guys, i find this thread very helful.. just a thought, is this ^^ for real? i mean do they really treat filipino nurses like that in sg? i went there last july and was inlove with the country, people are nice as well, and hoping i could work there, planning on working as EN ( because i have less than 3 years of experience as a nurse here in the phil.) then if given a chance will upgrade as Staff nurse, what are the common/frequently asked questions do employers' ask during interview? thank you in advance

- Sep 11, '11 by danmikegood day everyone.. i would like to ask.do hospitals in Singapore also hire male assistant nurse? because i checked every agency at work abroad and did not find any job hiring for male assistant nurse in Singapore. thanks for the reply.
- Sep 13, '11 by jujuseahQuote from gin89Yes there is a chance. But a slim chance because you have to work for at least 3-5 years before they want to CONSIDER to send you for RN classes as they need more ENs right now.hi evryone im a nurse here in philippines. i just want to ask all of you here..if there is a chance to become a RN in SG if i strated to work as an EN
