Every country, if the best care is to be given. BTW have you heard that all countries except Australia and they are getting fussy, have stopped importing nurses in large quantities.

Currently a lot of countries are in no great demand to import lots of untrained nurses. I would also say you need to pick a country you really want to live and work in and not go there just because they are importing foreign trained nurses. Not fair on the patients as well as the people working there.

NCLEX generally doesn't expire however if you have gone several years without working as a nurse the BON may make you sit it again

Thanks to your replies.

Many nurses wants to go abroad because of money. Partly and honestly, that is my reason. But the greater part of it is my passion to serve and to give meaning to my chosen profession. And i'll be very honored if i could serve my own country but in this kind of business going on here i guess i have a very little chance of doing that. And so if other countries are willing to hire "us", i'll make sure i'll give the best care to them. My target is really Australia since my dear Auntie is living alone there.. she needs a family for she was widowed, no children and is in her old-age. Hope Ausi will not get fussy about "us" going there if they need more nurses. Right now i'm still confused about the process to go there that's why i asked about other countries needing nurses [maybe their process will be easier for me to comprehend]. This one is for sure, I'll give the best care to all patients who will be under my care, if only given a chance.

The problem is not finding a job in many nations - the problem is getting the legal permission to practice nursing there and the legal permit to even be employed there ina any capacity.

The vast majority of nations in the first world are not keen on foreign nurses coming over to be employed and make it extremely difficult to practice nursing there or to be employed, legally. This is no different than the US.

You also need to be fluent in the language Not high school 1-2 years, but experienced in medical terms of the language.

You will find it nearly impossible to get legal permit in the EU unless you are a citizen of the EU, and fit into specific specialties..which requires experience.

The Middle East hires, but you need usually at least two years of experience, and contracts are usually 2 years or more long, with the substantially expected restrictions if you are nonmuslim and female.

Now, there are easier nations to find nursing work in, especially in the third world, even though those often have many legal restrictions The shortages of nursing staff stem from little to no pay, stigma against women working in those professions, abuse of women, nurses, mass genocide and widespread civil war, rape as a weapon, forced marriages to those with terrorist ties, widespread hunger, disease, inadequate clean water, massive corruption, and lack of proper protective equipment. Working there, one would be subject/exposed to those dangers. Thus they have a shortage because no one wants to work there. It would also be SERIOUSLY inadviseable to go there to work without substantial medsurg, ER and infectious disease experience, several years at least.

What an excellent insight ma'am caroladybelle. Thanks to your reply. I strongly agree with "the legal permission to practice nursing" as the main issue here. I am currently reading the Australian forum regarding how to practice nursing there legally. I find it really helpful just as your reply is. For others interested, you could check this out: New grad Filipino nurse wanting to work in Australia/New Zealand Part 2 - Nursing for Nurses

once again, thank you ma'am. :nurse:
