    I've been working as a nurse on cruise ships for 4 years
    It's funny, interesting,and, of course, sometimes very hard
    I believe there is a contractor for the Australian/ New Zealand nurses

    only the very best

    Hi again,

    I've heard there are quite a lot of nurses from New Zealand who worked/are working on cruise ships
    Unfortunately, I don't know the name/address of the employer

    I got someone else who hired me, he is a MD from Florida

    That's great ! It sounds like it would be fun
    Did you have nursing experience before taking the cruise ship job?

    Yes, definitely.

    and it can be a lot of fun if you have good colleagues (I mean nurses and doctors)

    it depends, also,of some other things, but if you're young and want to try something different you may go for it

    choose a good cruise line, as for instance RCCL
