    work abroad w/out experience.. possible?

    hello! same dilemma here... okay this is the picture.. i got here in New York bec my dad petitioned me. i graduated last 2005 in the philippines, took the local boards, left phils last year and just last week i passed my nclex rn. I felt so inadequate coz i don't have any working experince, just my clinical exposure (hospital duty) when i was still studying. And actually i've never experienced inserting a foley cath to a real person.. i just experience inserting it to a dummy as part of our related learning experience from school. Not only that, i don't even have the courage to look for a job coz (i know this is shallow so pls bear with me) I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IMPRESSIVE TO PUT IN MY RESUME. thankis for reading..
