My question is with regards finding nursing jobs in Ireland. I'll give a little background story on myself. I'm a Nigerian who obtained her Bsc in Nursing from Hungary therefore my qualifications are recognized within the EU. I wanted to start my nursing career in Ireland, so shortly after graduation I began the process of applying to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland.
I recently received my license and active PIN this past July and I've been actively job haunting with no luck. The problem isn't that there aren't any jobs. It's just that for some reason, nobody is willing to hire a non-EU nurse.
It's really frustrating mostly because I seem to have done every thing right. I took the IELTS exam and got an overall band score of 7.0. I have a year of acute hospital experience and I have familarised myself with the HIQA standards.
I seems like I have done everything right but I haven't gotten a single call back for an interview so far. I'm getting very desperate seeing as after college,I moved back in with my parents. Anyone who has gone through a similar situation understands how challenging that can be.
I'm wondering if anyone here can help me with information on what I need to do in order to secure a job interview
. I'm eager to start working, training and developing new nursing skills. Thanks
