    I prefer US of course. Basically, my relatives live there and speaking English language in americant accent are much easier compared to British and australian, hehe

    USA.. but with the retrogression and the recession I'm thinking of trying out other countries.. maybe Canada, Singapore or other Asian countries.

    I prefer australia for the weather, work opportunities and most importantly, the lifestyle.

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

    The Canadian economy is also in bad shape.

    And we just love being second choice, the country of last resort.

    If you want to earn to support your family,better to choose to work in Middle east,particularly KSA.Some hospital(especially those accredited by JCAHO) gpays a good salary,and likewise it is tax-free,with once a year free-ticket vacation and free housing.But if you want to live permanently with your family outside the Philippines,better to choose Canada,they're offering migration and with bright future for a stable nursing job.

    Singapore actually requires several years of experience as an RN before they will permit you to get licensed there as an RN.

    Japan will not even license their own nationals that have trained in other countries, they most definitely will not issue a license unless some very strict requirements are met. And we have not yet seen one nurse from another country be able to meet them.

    What other Asian countries are you considering?

    yes in the US u spend dollars too but its so so cheap...especially the food....imagine i went to costco and i ate a hotdog, i had a drink, 2 slices of pizza..and guess what? i paid only $10...here? if i had that order it might be around 25 euro...so converted to dollars its about 37 dollars...so really in the US cost of living is not expensive...even the house...here families do share a home..why? cause its too expensive...more often then not we only rent...seldom buy a house....also cars if u got one u have to pay road tax every month, insurance, plus some misc..and your petrol.....and our television here we pay tv license around 200 dollars a yr for each tv....our tax here as well always 40% for me since im single and im a nurse...
