does anyone have any experience with nursing in singapore? i know that a lot of nurses from developing countries like india and the philippines are frequently recruited to go there. however, i do not need the experience as a professional stepping stone per se. i am a us nurse considering a nursing leadership position there. any feedback would be greatly appreciated? thanks.

landed immigrant does not mean you can apply for a canadian passport or that you have canadian citizenship. it just means you can live permanently here in canada. you have to meet requirements of actually living for 1095 days in 4 years in canada, apply to be a citizen and then pass a test. if you leave to work overseas it may be seen as abandoning residency

permanent resident status

to become a canadian citizen, you must have permanent resident status in canada, and that status must not be in doubt. this means you must not be the subject of an immigration investigation, an immigration inquiry or a removal order (an order from canadian officials to leave canada).

time lived in canada

to become canadian citizens, adults must have lived in canada for at least three years (1,095 days) in the past four years before applying. children under the age of 18 do not need to meet this requirement.

you may be able to count time you spent in canada before you became a permanent resident if that time falls within the four-year period.

Hello,

Background: My husband is a Tanzanian citizen, US green card holder & is in education. In about 3yrs we would like to go to Tanzania so that we can expose our kids to their TZ culture and family. I have been 3 times, twice with our children, so I know a little about living standards and language. My husband speaks swahili with our kids too. I am a US citizen and have a BA in english & spanish, and a BSN (accelerated). I have been employed as a RN since 2008 working in NICU. We will both need to work. Our plans are to go for 1 yr maybe 2 depending on how it goes.I'm in the information gathering stage early, so it won't sneak up on us.

Question: 1)I am curious about whether or not a masters degree is helpful to work with NGOs? I have been advised (from a friend that is currently working there as a CNS) that a masters and/or l&d experience would net me more jobs since there is such a focus on maternal health from WHO. The masters specialties I've seen locally to where i live are: international nursing, perinatal specialist, midwifery. Thoughts on whether or not a masters is helpful, and if so which one would be better general intl nursing or more maternal health, online program or No Cali reccomendations? Either way I have to do something...back to school or change specialities pronto.

2) Anybody here with experience in taking their kids abroad too? Mine will be 9, 4 and maybe 2 if we have another one (:

thanks for any and all advice/rhoughts.

Hello Allnurses members out there !

My question refers to moving back to Europe: Uk or Ireland.

I will actually be eligible for US citizenship next year, then I would have double citizenship, because originally I am a Romanian national. Would love to practice as an RN in Europe. I have recently graduated an ADN program and passed the NCLEX on first try , so now i am licensed as an RN in CA. Are there any opportunities for nurses that have less than 2 years experience and want to practice overseas? Any advice, would be greatly appreciated ! Thank you :)

I would like to know if anyone has information about working in Panama as a RN. Or the other prospect is opening a business to work as a RN and hiring local nurses

Thanks

I doubt there are many countries that will accept LPN in regards to meeting requirements for a work/immigrant visa. Most countries will require RN to meet requirements. EU definitely will require RN and I think Australia and New Zealand is the same however Australia may accept LPN if you already have a immigrant/work visa allowing you to work in the country but if main applicant I believe LPN will not meet Australia requirements

For Suzanne4 or Silverdragon102,

I have the accelerated BSN (I wish I would have known that it is basically unaccepted everywhere). I have a few questions that I would be SO grateful if you could take a moment to answer.

1) If someone with an acc. BSN has 10 years nursing experience (for example), would the UK consider that sufficient clinical time?

2) Is it correct to say that for the most part it is accepted by Canada? (One of my classmates who got the acc BSN is going to take the CRNE in Oct).

3) Have you ever heard of someone maybe going back to school in the US just to get more clinical hrs so it would work (Is that even possible)?

Thank you in advance for any advice you could give me!!
