is very rare for a nursing graduate to immediately fly overseas after passing the
board exam because most foreign employers require nurses to have a work experience.
Also it is recommended that a nurse should first get a local job to get an experience

employers prefer a hospital work experience but since the number of nursing

accept hospital work but with minimal pay and sometimes the nurses are even the
one that pay the hospital to train them.

qualified abroad. Click here to know more about the NARS program and
