    Hi everyone again! Oh okie so at least ill be able to land as aid-soignant if ever i wont pass my NLE here in Philiippines. Its okie for me to study for 6 months or whatever, but i think i wanted to work as soon as i get there coz i have to help my husband to process the adoption of my kids that will cost much i think..Thanks for the info its really a great help...

    And my husband (a french man) for sure wont approved for me to go to UK and be away from him again, he said i already been afar from him long time... But ill see maybe in need to do deep convincing...

    thanks again...

    hey there! i know an algerian doctor who came to france, and he was only able to become an aide-soignante... i also know a croatian doctor who came, and was only able to become an aide-soignante, too... she later then had to study for 2 years in order to become an infirmiere... i don't know how it is for philippino nurses, but i think you could definitely be an aide-soignante in france.. and if not, you would probably have to study for 2-3 years and then be an infirmiere.. why don't you try england? i'm a UK nurse (living and working in france) and worked with loads of philippino nurses in england... you don't have to do your studies all over again, just an adaptation programme for 6 months... have a look at the Nursing and Midwifery council (NMC) webpage for more information for foreign nurses wishing to work in the UK... hope this helps! feel free to message me if you have any more questions...
    adaptation programme for 6 months? for infirmier or aid-soignante?

    Hi, I just wanted to piggyback on this fascinating discussion since you all seem to be so knowledgeable!! How easy is it to transfer a BSN from the States into a nursing license in France? I have dual citizenship with the UK so I can work in the EU without problems, and I took many years of French in school so presumably could pick it up after not too long. Thanks!

    the adaptation programme i mentioned is for foreign nurses wishing to work in the UK (NOT france).. but apparently it's hard to get a job there now, so it would be worth trying in france first...
