Sis yonamarie
Mahirap talagang humanap ng work for nurses ngayon kaya usually sa call centers sila nagaapply.. I took the board exam in 2006. Nclex in 2008 so I can go to US. Kahit napasa ko na lahat, experience pa din talaga ang hahanapin. 2012 I applied for australia..dito ako sinwerte and we're now permanent residents here. Salary wise, wala akong mahihiling pa. So work experience talaga ang key.

Wow naman sis belle_v2g
Ikaw na! Kinuha mo ba family mo? Kamusta naman dyan? Anyway, hindi ko kasi alam kung ipripriority ko yung magkaroon ng experience sa ngayon kasi I have a son. Na magsschool na din. Salary wise, hindi kakayanin and i wanna be there with him. Naghahanap ako ng ibang work na nurse related pa din para naman maggrow ako. Pero iba pa din may experience. Di ko alam. parang hanggang ngayon lost pa din ako :(((

I know sis.. mahirap talaga sa una.. ok naman dito. My husband and 5 year old son are here with me. I went here January 2013 to take the bridging program. Fortunately I was hired agad few days after getting my registration. Tapos the company processed our permanent residency na rin after that. Pero sa pinas I worked muna talaga sa hospital kase yun talaga ang hahanapin nila.. the good thing is when I was hired,  step 5 kagad ako even if new employee kase I have 5.5 years experience back home--which means, kapareho ko na agad ng pay ang nurse nila na may 5 yrs experience na. :) super considerate nila. As of now, step 7 nako even if 2 yrs pa lang ako sa hospital.

^sis you can check www.ahpra.gov.au for the requirements in taking the Bridging Program. Andyan na lahat ng info na need mo. Basically, you need to take the bridging program for international nurses for 3 months. you will have to apply for eligibility muna, then apply ng school, kumpletuhin lahat ng requirements especially the vaccines then apply for a visa. :)

^Ilang years of experience po ang need for bridging program?

Graduate ako ng 2010 pa but zero nursing experience. 4 years na ko na HR ang work. Although gusto ko pa ding bumalik sa medical field. Kaya lang I can't find a job sa hospital na may pay  :(

Sis kelangan talaga ng nursing experiencing sa bridging program, but kung mag-aaral ka sa AU for 2 years, hindi na need ng experience.  After you graduate, RN na kagad, no more bridging programs or exams. 
The latter is an expensive route but nababawi naman daw kasi you can work during free time habang nag-aaral.    This is same for UK.

Meron bang for UK dito?  :)

I'm wondering kung ano na ang status sa NZ?  Yung last chismis ko kasi dun years ago, nagiging picky na daw ang hospitals.  Kahit 3 years experience nahihirapan na matanggap sa hospitals.  Others say swertihan nalang.

Sis ploutos.. the longer the experience, the better. Pero it depends din sa area of specialisation. I have 5.5 yrs experience in PACU. During the time na nagaapply ako.. in demand ang area ko so in less than a month I found an employer agad. Different case sa friends ko.. They have 5 years experience sa pedia and medical, it took a while before they found an employer.. tapos agency pa.. til now sa agent parin sila kumukuha ng workload.

Hi sissies, hindi ba mahirap maging nurse? Bearable ba ang shifting at working ng holidays? As in sa salary worth ba it ba ang hirap? Hindi nakakatakot maging nurse? Mabigat ba? Im in Canada and may RPN sila which is two yrs course. Im really torn between nursing or office job( office admin etc) course.

Hi sis.
It's a job that requires much more intellect since you are looking after other people's lives. So if you are passionate at this kind of work, you'll be good at it. I never thought I'd be a nurse. My aunt in America was the one who told me to take up Nursing, until such time na nagustuhan ko na sya.
It's not scary, especially if you have the right qualifications. you will feel a sense of responsibility. Hindi ka pwedeng magwork kung wala ka sa sarili. I've been nursing since 2006, and it's a continuous process of learning. You need to be updated with the latest trends in health care para kaya mong makipagsabayan plus, an expertise in an area. I'm a post anaesthetic care nurse by the way.
Pay wise, I don't think there's anything more i could ask for. nurses in australia are the highest paid nurses compared to anywhere in the world so i can say I'm fortunate to be here (though i tried my luck in america too but due to retrogression and visa issues nila hindi na natuloy despite pasing the Us board exams) now im earning better. when i was in pinas im only earning 15-16k a month in a private hospital. Now i earn that amount on an 8 hour shift alone. wala pang OT yun and i work full time. We get increases twice a year. In my 2 yrs in the hospital, my salary increased to $10,000 aud na. as I've said in my previous post, experience is the key. The conpany is paying me as much as a level 7 nurse would receive even if 2.2 years pa lang ako sakanila.  i am looking at upgrading my qualifications pag may time na ako. Maybe go to school again someday for skills upgrade for higher position.

Wow, ngayon lang ako nakabalik dito FN. As of the moment, school nurse ako dito sa pinas. Hirap pa rin makahanap ng hospital, if meron naman nagdadalawang isip ako. Pero sabi ng mga kaibigan ko, halos lahat ngayon, experience na lang ang kinukuha dahil nga gusto sa ibang bansa. Lalo na ngayon, kasi ang hirap talaga dito sa pinas:( ang dami pa nating nurses. And alam ko, marami nang trabaho na nurses din tinatanggap. If gusto mag ibang bansa i suggest na maghospital kayo right away. Pero kung wala naman balak maraming jobs o company ngayon na kumukuha ng nurses.

Hi mga fellow nurses!

Passed the Nursing Board Exams in 2007 and worked for 6 months in a hospital, however due to financial reasons, had to stop and worked in a call center for so many years. Ngayon nag-asawa na ako and wanting to have kids naisip ko na bumalik sa nursing because my husband can sustain us financially naman and willing din tumulong parents ko for trainings. Just decided too go back to nursing and kukuha ulit ng IVT, BLS and after noon mag Dialysis Training. Naisip ko kc walang future ang call center and I want to ensure that we will be able to provide for our kids kung sakali. Na-miss ko na din kasi yung challenge na bigay ng Nursing Industry. Goodluck to all of us and God bless.

I am a nurse but not practicing may profession for 8 years. Actually, I never had a chance to practice because during my time pahirapan humanap ng work in the hospital. And now, there are a lot of opportunities for nurses here and abroad. Even BPO companies are offering different kinds of jobs for nurses. I have regret kung bakit hindi ko pinractice ang pagiging nurse. Nasa huli talaga ang pag-sisisi. Do you think it's too late for me or I'm just being coward?

Passed the local nursing board in 2004 and nclex in 2008. Sobrang liit ng sahod sa hospital dito sa pinas. Pero di naman ako nagsisi kasi naka 5 years experience din ako sa hospital at ang daming kong natutunan at naranasan. Latest job ko for 2 years is sa CPO counterpart ng BPO since mas malaki sila magpasahod and may HMO at nursing related ang work kaya magandang experience din naman.
Ngayon im scheduled na for interview in US embassy and kasama ko na ang maliit kong family. Hoping for the best in the USA. Grabe tagal kong naghintay, nagka asawa at nag ka anak na ako sa paghihintay.

May mga kabatch pla ko dito. Batch 2007 din ako. It was really a struggle finding a job in the Philippines. Hindi rin ako pinalad na mahire sa hospital. Puro training and volunteer lang ako. Buti na lang mabait yung last na hospital kung saan ako nagvolunteer at binigyan ako ng coe as a staff nurse which is nagamit ko naman.

Nandito na ako ngayon sa Saudi.  Nagwowork sa private hospital as Nursery/NICU nurse. Mag 4 years na din ako and I'm planning to apply sa western na.

Akala ko nga before na masiyado nako matanda na nag abroad pero meron pa ring mas matanda sa kin na first time mag abroad. It's never too late na magbalik loob basta tiwala lang at tiyaga. At palagi rin tayo mag pray.

^ Sis, wala sa edad yan. Mas mahirap kung sasabak ka kaagad sa gyera ng walang armas sabi nga nila.

Ang hirap kasi sa iba sa atin, may sariling timeline na dapat sundin. Pero minsan, it's not in our hands.
