Filipino Nurses, Therapists still needed in US

Despite the global economic downfall, Filipino nurses and therapists remain in demand in the United States. Qualified applicants may have to work in the emergency room, ICU/CCU, Telemetry and Medical/Surgical areas.

St. Georges, a reputable POEA licensed agency, will need 600 registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists that will be deployed to US hospitals. They will be working within three to six months in the US with H1B visas under a non-cap exempt status, meaning their positions do not fall under the retrogression period for H1B visas.

Qualified applicants will receive a minimum salary of $48,192 (Php 2,301,408) a year or higher depending on the experience and qualifications of the selected applicant, plus benefits from Cambridge Healthcare, like the joining of spouse and two children under 21, relocation bonus, assistance and housing allowance, a 36-hour week with 12 hour shifts, lucrative overtime pay, US standard benefits and options, paid legal, licensing and testing fees.

Nurses or therapists who can eligible to apply for the position is those who have at least one year work experience currently working or on volunteer duty and who have worked in a 100-bed capacity hospital. Passing the NCLEX, IELTS and NPTE is not required since the employer can assist on NCLEX, visa screen, state licensure, other documents processing.
