Nursing in Ireland

Posted

Hi, This board doesn't seem too active, but I will try anyway. If there are any nurses out there from Ireland I would like to hear from you. I am an American nurse with 30 years experience, currently working NICU.

Basically, I want to a recruiter to see this and offer me a job. Thanks...

Hi:

I just noticed your post. I too have been interested in working in Ireland. What I have found out from colleagues is that nurses there do more of the CNA type of responsibiliites such. The Dr. does not want you to do the assessment etc..

I have written to an Irish hospital who said they would recruit me. This is something I may do anyway as a long term visit to my families roots. I am of Irish decent.

You can find web sites on Irish hospital recruters. I think there is another type of NCLEX for international nursing. As you probably know, the economy is booming but I have heard nursing wages are very low. One article I read sited the nurses there enjoy the patient care ratios and find the job rewarding! Good luck to you!

Let me help you both. I worked in Ireland and not through an agency. I went to Dublin to visit a friend and went to the Irish Nursing Board. They gave me a package which I brought back to the States, filled out, sent back to Ireland and I was given an Irish Nursing License in about two months. There is much more but I won't try to explain it all here.

hi i want to know more about working in waterford

i say the person who says salary in ireland is lowwww. i object. having been a celtic tiger in the present years, ireland nurses are the worlds 2nd highest paid nurses next to Japan. rewarding because we only have 6 patient in a day, and basically, we are onto team nursing, patient are less lemanding and of course, not suing the nurse unlike the american patient. i dont see myself being sued by a freak patients afterall the efforts and care. it is a hostility of society, a disgraced behaviour be the people who overloved freedom.,it is the stupidity of patients...well, why i say this, its because patient should be happy that they are being cared for, in return they should be respectful to nurse, not suing them.it is a cultural situation,.

irish are generous, kind and with sense of humur.i love them and no one ever have complaint me and it is not the culture in this irish society:D

Sorry, but look at the dates of the posts that you are referring to, they are from 2001 and 2002.

I seriously do hope that there has been an increase in pay since that time.

And nurses in Japan are not the highest paid by any means, and CA actually has ratio laws where they cannot have over five patients to begin with. You may wish to do some reading on these forums to find out what is actually happening around you.

can a filipino nurse with a few months of experience work in Ireland? I am frustrated right now because I already passed my CGFNS, NCLEX and IELTS yet America won't issue immigrant visas this time...

What should I do? It's just frustrating that after working hard to pass those exams I end up uncertain about my hope of working in the USA.

You will still need to go through the process with the Irish nursing board which can take a few months but there is no guarantee that you can find an employer willing to help with a work permit. Maybe worth contacting some hospitals in Ireland but be aware EU does ask that countries employ own citizens then EU before the rest of the world so may have difficulties. Plus you may have a contract to sign which may have conflict with the US

Add to what Anna has posted and you will still need to go thru their licensing process as well as immigration process to be able to work there.

And they essentially will hire those from their own country and then those that hold a EU passport over anyone else. So unless you have years of experience in an area that they require help in, it is now going to be very hard to be sponsored for a visa that will permit you to work there.

I am sure that you have seen several posts by Filipinos that are now there, but they went over there several years ago, and things have changed as far as visas.

Best of luck to you.

I wanted to post a question to this discussion board. I'll be done with my BSN in May and hopefully with have a license by the end of the summer. My fiance is applying to University College of Cork in Ireland for grad school. We're both really excited about being in Ireland for a few years, but I'm worried that I won't be able to work because of immigration laws and/or my lack of experience. Does any one have some advice/information/a ray of hope for me?

hi people, just want to ask a few questions...

my mother is working in Ireland for years now as a nurse in a Nursing Home, i already worked here in the philippines as a staff nurse for a year now and by the end of this year she's planning to take me with her. would it be possible for me to have a tourist visa first since it will last for 3months and apply to be registered in An board altranais while staying there? ...

I would image it will take more than 3 months to get sorted with the Irish nursing board but also are you going to qualify for a work visa?

thanks for the reply,,,

since there's a possibility that it will take more than 3months, can i look for a job there maybe as an LPN or CNA instead to have a working visa so that i can stay longer?

my mom's a bit older that's why i really really want to work there with her so i can also take care of her as well as help her....

I doubt you can get a job as LPN as they haven't been trained for several years. You will need to meet the country's requirements for a work permit and I also doubt LPN and CNA will meet that requirements. Without a work permit you can not stay and work. It also takes several months to go through the process

okay now im really confuse... What do you think can i do now?

How about applying for an board while im still here in the philippines?so that when my mom bring me there all i need to do is follow up on my application to be registered? Will that do? If you're in my case,what will you do?

So sorry for all the questi0ns... I badly need some advice...thankz.

Doesn't work that way. You need to find a employer willing to work with you and get a work permit. Without this work permit you can not stay and work. Generally you need to have gone through the nursing board already
