I have been a nurse for eleven years. I have worked in the Philippines and
Saudi Arabia as a nurse, working in the operation room in the Philippines
and at the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) in Saudi Arabia.cathe
I went back to the Philippines, and immediately applied when I heard that
there was recruiting of nurses in Japan. To work in Japan I know there is a
language barrier, but coming to Japan was one of my dreams and I had heard a
lot of good things, so I thought, ’this is it!’. I am so happy to be
chosen, and am grateful for the people who chose me. Japanese is hard and
have thought of giving up, but I always think, ‘I can work hard if it’s for
my daughter!’
Nice to meet you, everyone.
