Hi everyone.Pls i do need information about how to gain employemnt in ireland.I have just received a decision letter from an bord stating i need to do a 6 weeks adaptation to be fully registered with them.

Is there anyone with information on current employment opportunities and how can i get a place for my adaptation.Just need information regarding how to go about getting my adaptation done and maybe getting a job as i do want to be fully registered with the Bord even if i will not work with my PIN number immediately.Is this possible?if not what options do i have .

Thanks.

I would suggest you contact the nursing board and check what is acceptable to them. Do they have credited courses or establishments that you have to attend? Employment will be a case of applying to hospitals and seeing if they will assist with a work permit

Hi! Have you tried visiting their website? Just in case no, here is the link - http://www.nursingboard.ie/en/homepage.aspx

Most Filipino nurses in Ireland were under recruitment agencies before. However, since Ireland is experiencing recession as of the moment, I am not sure if you can still find Philippine recruitment agencies scouting nurses for Ireland.

ABA's requirements are not that hard to follow. You only need to have the application form. Form A should be filled out by the applicant; Form B to be completed by your nursing school, & TOR should also be sent directly by the school; Form C by the PRC. Together with Form A, you should also submit the necessary notarized documents. If you request for the application form, a guideline is included for the applicant to follow, and that includes what documents should be sent. But since you are outside Ireland, I am not sure how you can secure an application form. Well, you can try to email them to request for an overseas nurse application pack, or maybe try calling them to inquire. But most of the time, they don't immediately reply to emails. Additionally, you also need to pass IELTS or TOEFL (see ABA's website for their required score).

i know a lot has been discussed on this topic already... but i am currently a studnt and an accelerated program in the us. i already hold an undergrad degree in something else but decided to switch careers. i wanted to join my boyfriend in ireland, that is where he lives, but i am not sure of the process. i have been to the board website and am still a little confused.

can you not obtain employment in ireland without previous experience?

any advice would surely help!!

thanks!

You need to check with an Bord if you have the required hours for registration from both a clinical and theory point of view.

Also the Irish economy is in the toilet. Friends of mine who graduated in the last few months can't get jobs...........5 years ago I had 3 offers from different wards in my hospital for work. Friends of mine who were on fixed term contracts are being let go. They cannot find work in the Republic or Northern Ireland and are moving to Great Britain or Australia. I left before it got so bad so I was lucky.....It was a choice for me.

Wards and hospitals are closing. The hospital I worked at is closing 40 beds out of 300. Cutting 100 nursing & allied health staff. Reduced its ortho theatre lists to 2 a week (used to be 2 theatres 4 times a week). Nurses and other public services have taken a 25% pay cut in order to keep jobs.

Most of the hospitals in Ireland are run by the HSE the public hospital system. It is grossly over budget. There are a few private hospitals in Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Galway that have acute services. There a private nursing homes most with state paid for beds for pt that need long term care.

It is pretty hard on the job front is what I am saying at the min. My brother is a carpenter and he has had to move to the UK for work. Half of my class are in Australia or New Zealand or the UK. Best of luck to you.

Thank you for your honesty.. Maybe it will change in a year ha wishful thinking.

If that was the case you would be fighting me for a job cause even though I love it in Oz but it just a bit far away from home! Can't exactly pop home if I need a home cooked meal and a bit of TLC!

But at least summer will soon be here Down Under!

I hope that things work out for you.

Ha not much of a fight I'm obviously the weaker candidate..ha good luck to u too!

If you train outside the US and plan on registering and becoming a licensed nurse after training all requirements are usually listed on the state board of nursing in the state you plan on registering with. Most require some form of involvement with CGFNS in the for of CES which is a breakdown on your transcripts
