    Most of the nurses I work with are from the Phillipines. Thay are a wonderful asset to all who need to be hospitalized. Many are friends, two for more than 25 years.
    Good Luck!

    Greetings to all of you!

    Thank you for your warm welcome and great forum!

    I am a Nurse from the Philippines. I am under petition from a New York Hospital that has had trouble recruiting RNs, so they came to the Philippines to recruit. I have 3 Years experience as a Med Surg Nurse. I was hired to work in rural New York and I hope to be there by late 2006 or early 2007.

    Over here ( In the Phil.s) there are just so many Nurses that leave for the Middle East ( More than 100,000 Filipino to Saudi Arabia alone past 2 years),to Dubai, UAE , England (20,000 Filipino RNs past 3 years), Ireland and Canada.

    The other sad part about Nursing in my country is that it is very hard to find work here because of the 'oversupply', Hospitals here only hire RNs who are between the ages of 23- 35 (Age Discrimination!). My first year I had to work doing 'pro-bono' work or work for Free at a 100 Bed Government,Provincial hospital. I have freinds who are just 'working here' for the "experience", but theyre families are struggling after getting into much debt. for their nursing education.

    I am excited to go to the US and I look forward to learning more and possibly pursuing a Masters degree there. Even if I have an immigrant visa,I also want to eventualy return back here to the Philippines, after I have paid off my families debts and after building my expertise to becoming a Nursing instructor because of the need to improve the nursing/ healthcare education here.

    God Bless you all !

    hi! I'm haze, a 24 year old single mom from Muntinlupa Citeeeee!!!!!

    I'm a fourth year nursing student (graduating baby! ) and a shifter from a course in Communication Arts. I'm currently studying in Laguna Northwestern College and fell in love with Nursing as soon as I got hold of my first stethoscope.

    I also plan on working abroad in the future, help the PI in my own little way by what they get through remittances and return back home, and like Ma'am Josie1, I want to be an instructor. I also dream of being a competitive nurse, help heal people even from across the globe without any thoughts of cultural differences (we all are brothers anyway), and I also want to be instrumental in attaining world peace. This is why I spend every possible moment studying my brains off! Hope everyone here gets to achieve everything they wish for.

    I thank you.
