Any tips on how to get a nursing job abroad? What's the easiest way? Can you refer any agency?

^ I see.. :)

H1B sis? Yung schedule a nurse visa? It's I-140 nga pala.. :D

H1B is working visa. I-140 is immigrant petition by an employer.


Medyo matagal tagal pa ang waiting period natin sis.. :) But al least may inaantay kesa sa wala di ba?

hmm...di ako sure sis kung H1B. actually confused ako sa mga terms na yan.  ang nakikita ko lang sa profile ko is EB3 and 1-140.  ???

ang nakalagay sa petition type ko is EB-3 Immigrant Petition for Nurse then ang case type sa receipt notice ko is I-140.

Which is which?  ???

im a nursing graduate too, and as we all know ang daming pumasa din sa recent board exam, my mom told me na mag uk na lang ako, i tried many consultancy and agency
sabi na un nga student visa [textspeak!] gagamitin mo, pero ok lang yun kasi earn and study program un, you work and study for 40 hours per week at the same time and kumikita ka na dun, 6GBP/ hour lang naman, hindi pa kasama dun yung part time ha,

gusto niyo ba? may promo sila so makasave ka ng 20k, mura lang talaga hindi aabot ng 200k [textspeak!] placement fee, kasama na yung visa fee ha..

pm me if interested

hi missfragile, please resend po sa ibang email add ko, i sent u PM. thank u sis.

Btw, I attended the orientation of Queensland recruitement in Cityland Tower. Eto ang details nila sa Student Visa Program.

Gemal College - 3500 euro - 1 year - Higher Studies course
Stratford College - 3800 euro - 15 months - Masters in Health
Downpayment of Tuition fee is 1000 euro, installment yung balance

Processing fee is 57,000 pesos. 23k downpayment

Estimated cost of living:

70euro per week - flat rental
6 euro (not sure if daily or weekly) - food
(yan na yung pinaka tipid mode)

Once you get there with the student visa, you will attend classes for 15 hours per week (usually 2 days a week lang daw to).

Then find a part time job. Kanya kanyang diskarte daw to. U ask your school daw for a list of nursing homes where u can apply.

Minimum wage of a student is 6euro per hour. So they encourage you to have 2 part time jobs para 8 hours a day. Estimated monthly income is 96,000 pesos only. And, you wont work as a nurse ha. Nursing assistant or nursing aide to. And you can babysit daw or clean houses for a pay (like in the movie Milan).

I realized that it's gonna be a hard life.
