Hi! Good day to all. I'm having a hard time in seeking a refutable agency, hoping that joining in your site would help me to sort things out. I recently took my IELTS last month, 21st of May and still waiting for its result which i could probably receive this week. I also had my 1 yr relevant working experience as a staff nurse in one of the tertiary hospital here in the Philippines. Moreover, I fortunately passed my NCLEX exam last December, albeit I able to surpassed this exam, my door is still open to other alternative states which I could use to have a chance to work abroad. Right now I'm considering two agencies namely; Global care in makati and Drake International agency. Are the said agencies a good choice for me to sign in?

I hope you guys could give me a proper guidance with my dilemma. Thanks and more power to all!

2 common rumors in Philippines regarding working in USA that are incorrect

1.) One must have work experience before they can work in USA

2.) One must pass NLE before they can take NCLEX.

Both are basically wrong

Your issue your gonna face is getting a Visa to come to USA, and most work Visa's from PI are taking many years.

Other Visa can be used to get to USA quickly, but it all depends if you qualify..

You are still currently looking at a couple of years wait and an agency will not make any difference. Have you considered looking for a hospital first and going the direct hire route?

not yet..honestly,i don't know how and where to begin. My friend ask me to join to her agency at HAPI using a student visa in UK, do you think it will be a smart way to start my career?

That a choice you must make.

I spent some time in UK in youth, and didn't really care for the place.

This will not give you RN experience which is what employers will be looking for. It will also not be a path to stay in the UK and work as a RN.

You ask about is it a good way to start your career, going on a student visa to the UK will not count towards nursing experience and some people believe going the student route will allow them to stay in the UK and work as a RN. It will not
