Any interest in starting a Pinoy nursing forum? Forums are really hard to create since it’s essentially starting a community from scratch, but if there’s a demand we’ll try to do it. Comment here with any interest.
Undocumented filipino nurses (and of course nurses from other countries) are finding it obviously hard to find work in the current economic climate. However, there’s still hope, in a kind of sideways roundabout way.
Workers are finding options by trekking North to Canada from the US. There, the status in America is not a criteria when applying for landed immigrant status. Jobs in Canada are also more plentiful, particularly in areas where the economy is doing well like the province of ALberta. that doesn’t mean the demand for nurses is high, but caregivers (nursing homes for example) are in demand, albeit the pay is much lower than a nurse.
Note the heading: pinoy nurse inherits……
Apparently a private nurse in NY was bequeathed 33 million in inheritance after her employer of 20 years passed away. The story sounds a little sketchy.
Let’s hope it’s legit, and yea, I guess caring for an old rich woman for 20 years without a raise can be worth it
BTW, the family was left nothing…..
