    if i answered this 2005... I would say USA

    I am a Filipino and since late 2005 there was a retrogression so now i am looking at 3 countries... Canada, Auz and NZ

    I am a second courser and heard that NZ does not accept it so I am left to two.

    I originally wanted Canada but I wa thinking of my retirement and cost of visiting my home country very so often so I am choosing Auz.

    Auz is only 7.5 hours away from the Philippines. There is also snow in the mountains so I can still learn to ski and a lot of shorelines so i can still enjoy the beach. The best of both worlds.

    Auz is where I want to be.

    With 3 kids and a supportive husband, I am looking forward to migrate there in years time.

    So help me God.

    i agree with you dolce. i am a fresh grad and just passed the local boards this june but i cannot make up my mind on which country to choose

    i want to go to the US - family is there but with the retrogression and financial crisis?
    SAUDI - because i have no experience but im still 21 y/o
    Canada - cost of living really burdens me
    Australia - i know nobody and i have no idea yet.

    I dont know what to do

    USA- 7 year wait.

    Saudi- go if they have an opening

    Canada- not all areas accept Philippine education, wonderful country, and you will be making a heck of a lot more than you are making now.

    Australia -beautiful country, may have to do a program before practicing.

    FYI... my friend from Ontario who is a second courser graduate from the Philippines just passed the CRNE and He did not have to do additional studies in Canada.

    It just proves that Philippines education is accepeted but it is a case to case basis and ou really have to challenge the NUrsing Council.

    But again weather is still muh better in OZ... so OZ is still my choice

    It is all done on an individual basis and goes on what is on your transcripts. There are a couple of threads in the International forum discussing ways for Canada

    I prefer US most of all for it has a better way of living even if you have to do everything and good health insurance.

    Things in the US isn't good at the moment, we are seeing nurses being laid off as well as other types of workers being laid off and with this means insurance is being cancelled impacting more again on hospitals so more staff will be laid off. It is having a big knock on effect currently and will get worse before it gets better

    Most people love USA but since there is a recession going on and economy is in bad-shape they resort to Canada.
