For Philippine BSN grads now working in the US, or for anyone who has experience working with them, is there anything that makes these people unique in any way compared to their US-trained colleagues? As a recent foreign grad myself, I am still a long way from landing my first RN job in the US, but I am already anticipating a job interview
question like, "What have you learned in your Philippine nursing education (or culture) that would make you an asset to this hospital?"
Aside from a chance to be with family and presumably save some money, I would like to think that my having Philippine nursing education has taught me something that maybe I might not have as readily learned in a US nursing school
(in which I was once enrolled but dropped out after a couple days to take up nursing in the Philippines, for various reasons).
