    I'm a kiwi now working in the USA. I used to work in the ER in Hamilton and they had employed philippine nurses. They were registered nurses that were required to complete further clinical hours. Once they completed there hours they were hired on. I know there was a large number that came not only to the ER but also to the the floors. Which made for a great support group. The hospital arranged shared housing. For more info try contacting there recruitment centre - 64 7 8398899 maybe they can help.

As for the beer.....yeah, aint too bad about 5 bucks kiwi in the pub. all good, see ya when you get here. Oh and what part are you from???
