YES, they will....unlike here in the Philippines where new grads, even already passed the local board and certified RNs are not given a salary...some even pay for the training....

Don't get me wrong! I love the Philippines...it is just that I hate the people running our systems...

yes it is possible but at what expense? patient's life?

poor nursing care and bad decision making related to inexperience in the hospital setting will show during emergency crisis and it is giving us filipinos a bad name abroad.

i once heard a news of a nursing director reprimanding a newbie and i quote her saying:"you are here to work not to learn!!!". kinda shameful right?

this is not to discourage you, however, i still recommend for you to at least do volunteer work for about six months in any hospital in the philippines before applying abroad.

You will have a preceptor at first even if you have more than ten years experience...no good hospital will ever trust a newbie without evaluating his capabilities and competencies first....

It is possible to work here in the US without any hospital experience in the Philippines. There is a good amount of orientation depending on where you want to work from medical-surgical floor to ED to ICU. We are all here to learn and wok at the same time. Nursing itself is an evolving profession, and we have to adapt to these changes. The things you have learned 10 years ago may not be applicable today since now we are on a verge of new technologies and research. It is wrong and even incomprehensible to say " we are here to work and not learn". I dont' think this is true at all, it's all hearsay since it was just pass on to you by a friend. Most of the Director of Nursing here in US have their Masters in Nursing as their educational attainment, and most of them are supportive to their nurses especially to the new ones. Since they have their Masters, most of them are in support for new research and evidence based practices. Learning doesn't stop as soon as you graduate or have your US license. Education is a continous process...thats' why we have CEU's here, competencies to update our knowledge and skills. Now to the OP, go and follow what you think is best for you not for anyone else's, what you think is right for you...to the others please stop the crab mentality..
