    Hi,
    My sister is a registered nurse in India with specialization in cardio-thoracic nursing. She wants to work in Singapore as RN. Is there any organization or employer who she can contact for help ? What are the requirements for the same ? Would greatly appreciate any help.

    With Regards,
    Amol Kawale

    Hi Amol,

    For foreign nurses they require atleast 3yrs of working experience in a 200-250 bed capacity hospital. For more infos you can contact the Singapore Nursing Board. www.snb.gov.sg.

    But just to give you some details, before your sister can register for SNB or become licensed here, she needs to find an employer first. This is a pre-requisite. The board will only allow your sister to sit for the exam if she has an employer. and almost every hospitals here require a nurse to have atleast 3yrs of post registration experience before they can employ you.

    If your sister does not have the 3yrs work experience requirement, she can apply as an Enrolled Nurse provided that she has atleast 1year work experience in a 100 bed capacity hospital. After a year or so, if her performance is good, the hospital can let her sit for the SNB-RN exam (upgrading test) so she can work as a full-fledged RN.


    for job opportunities she can google search or go to job search engines online like

    jobsdb.com.sg
    jobstreet.com.sg
    jobscentral.com.sg
    st701.com.sg
    singhealth.com.sg
    parkwayhealth.com

    hope this helps. Goodluck!

    Definitely with your qualifications they will surely accommodate you. Singapore is a multi-racial country so as long as you are qualified you can work here. :wink2: However i think the wage for nurses here are not as high as compared to US or UK.
    Agree , it's true.
    But lots of potential there - i.e , if you're planning to do business , I strongly recommend you to go there .

    Hello Chris,
    I am also an RN in the United States and I am about to complete my masters as a family nurse practitioner. I am wondering if you found out any additional information about practicing as a US/UK trained nurse in Singapore, either as an advanced practice nurse or as a staff RN.
    Thanks,
    Amanda

    ... i'm currently working here in Singapore.

    and just to let you all know,if you happened to be an EN in the first place that you came here for work, you can also be an RN after you finished your 2 years of contract.

    and you may be asking me further how is it going to happen?.. .you can approach your respective nurse manager if you really wanted to take the exam required to take for you to be upgraded as an RN.

    to became an RN in Singapore? it is an option. it can be achieved.so please let us help each other. If you know something that is really happening here in SG, please share it.
    ... Thanks so much for talking!!! This has been very informative.

    I was only reading Lippincott's pathophysiology book. You will be fine. I find the questions were very easy. It might change now, I sat for the SNB in 1999. Good luck.

    Hello!
    My sister just recently went to Singapore & work as a nurse in one of the best hospitals there. We're actually from cebu. From what I know, She ventured to manila for a few days together with some of her co-workers and personally applied at agencies there. Fortunately she was considered and everything went pretty fast from there. It took around 2-3 months processing.

    What is the average salary of nursing there in singapore?
