    basically how many months is the training? and do they give salary if ur a trainee...

    YES, they will....unlike here in the Philippines where new grads, even already passed the local board and certified RNs are not given a salary...some even pay for the training....

    Don't get me wrong! I love the Philippines...it is just that I hate the people running our systems...

    yes it is possible but at what expense? patient's life?

    poor nursing care and bad decision making related to inexperience in the hospital setting will show during emergency crisis and it is giving us filipinos a bad name abroad.

    i once heard a news of a nursing director reprimanding a newbie and i quote her saying:"you are here to work not to learn!!!". kinda shameful right?

    this is not to discourage you, however, i still recommend for you to at least do volunteer work for about six months in any hospital in the philippines before applying abroad.

    You will have a preceptor at first even if you have more than ten years experience...no good hospital will ever trust a newbie without evaluating his capabilities and competencies first....

    yes very possible! those who require experience are the employment agencies only. my sister has a tourist visa, a walk in applicant in CA and she is working for 6 months now!
