American nurse considering Singapore Hospital. Any advice?

Postby kadiolo » Sat, 14 May 2011 3:28 am

I am an American nurse considering a nurse management position at a hospital. I am hopeful to receive any feedback from western-trained nurses that have worked or are actively working in Singapore and their experiences. What is the typical hospital culture like? Patient care? Overtime? Shift differentials? Difficulties managing others? Opportunities for professional development? Average salaries? Culture shock? Career options post-Singapore? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You need to be accredited by the board in order to practise as a nurse.

Thanks for link. However, I do not need any licensure information, if I accept the position the recruiting agency and employer will secure my license. I am more so interested westerner's prespectives on the hospital nursing culture.
