    My facility has used Philipino nurses for the last 2-3 yrs. and we are glad to have the help! That being said, unless you are coming to the USA to do community/ public health nursing, why do it back home? Use your time at home to do some bedside nursing if that's where you'll be working here in the states.
    I'm precepting a youngish lady from the Phillipines now. One thing that would be EXTREMELY helpful is that they have an excellent grasp of the English language....and a good grasp of the cultural differences they face. It seems very hard and at times unsafe for me to try and show/tell her how to care for a fresh MI or cath lab pt....when she doesn't really understand me.
