Hi guys.. I am a Fil-Am who finished college here in the Philippines. Due to me being a US citizen, I wasn't allowed to take the Local Boards, so I took the NCLEX-RN immediately after college. My question is this, can I gain experience in the hospitals in Manila even if I did not take the Local Boards? Take note: I do not have DUAL CITIZENSHIP
From what I heard you have to be a citizen of the Phils or have a dual citizenship if you want to work in the Phils, but for me, it's just the EXPERIENCE I am after, no need for the salary. My experience here can help me get a job in the States when I plan on going back after a year. Please help me out guys, thank you so much..
You can try looking up Filipino nursing blogs as they usually have a list of specific requirements for trainings/seminars but unfortunately they really ask for a valid PRC license (with BLS as the only exception).
