    Again do whatever is necessary you think that is best for you, that you think what is right for you...The purpose of my responses here is to just enlighten you and give you an idea nothing more than that...Now if you think that experience counts and will help you to be the best health care provider then go ahead. My intention was just to answer the OP's questions that's all..BTW I am a preceptor from ICU, tests/exams are done on a weekly basis, I don't know how some floors are..

    I think it's a matter of supply and demand there. Too many nurses applying to US so some "agencies" sets up a standard. The hospitals here I am assuming I think would rather have a connections with the agencies there. They rather avoid direct hiring since these hospitals wouldn't have the slightest idea if you are what you claim to be, if tanscripts are real, if your local license is good. No chances of checking your credentials there..so sadly to avoid those risk the hospitals will choose to hire nurses through an agency...I am just assuming all of these since I don't do the hiring, it just make sense to me.

    Anyway, goodluck to everybody...

    :yeahthat:

    your point taken quite clearly along wiht your good intentions. even if you hadn't followed-up, i know you're merely showing kababayans their options. that's greatly appreciated.

    about hospitals shying away from direct-hiring and relying on agencies with set standards, it's a no-brainer alright. that's their prerogative anyway...

    i'm currently working on my ADN in the us while volunteering on the side. strangely so, even if i'm still in manila, being asked to put in a year or so of local experience wouldn't be such a bad idea to me. to each his own.

    This thread is really nice. It gives me hope and confidence that things will be alright as I am in this situation right now.

    I will be leaving for the states anytime next month to work as a nurse without any hospital experience, and this my employer knew when I applied with them. I graduated from nursing school 10 years ago and has never been able to practice it. It will be my first time to work and practice my profession once I get there. I was very apprehensive the past months and was even wanting to pay for a training that I can get. At the same time, i was also confused because some of my friends who are already working in the states told me not to worry about getting a training anymore as the employers/ hospitals will give me an orientation and a training first before I will be left on my own to work independently.

    Well, this gives me high hopes. Thanks a lot for your sharing. God bless you all.

    Yes. I would trust those friends of yours who are already in the US and your employers that says it like so.

    you dont have to worry. you will be given orientation and you will have a
    preceptor who will assess your performance if you could be left on your own.every country has their own system. i was in singapore, their way is different and now im in uk, system here is also different basing on my own experience. good luck. you will be fine:angel2:

    i do appreciate your feedback. well, ultimately it is the nurse himself who would decide which is best for him. each has his own motivation and aspirations. but, it is real great to be informed. above is very sensible and well taken.

    more power!

    Hi, work abroad without experience is possible. i took the nclex this july (i passed). I then called/emailed a lot of hospitals. Most would not sponsor foreign nurses without experience. But, eventually i was lucky enough to find one that will sponsor me (i took the nclex right after graduation). They set me up with their lawyer and i can start working once my work authorization is approved. So, it is possible.

    hi, i have question (especially for asianrn). I'm wondering what is usually included during the orientation. I found a hospital that will sponsor me. They have a ten-week orientation.

    I already took an BLS class here in the states (red cross), but wondering if i need to take an IV therapy class (it's kinda expensive). or is it likely to be included during the orientation?

    Thanks
