Nursing in singapore

Postby nzellen » Tue, 12 Jun 2012 3:24 pm

Hi
I know there are lots of posts already about nursing here but they're a bit old.Hoping for some updated info.
I am a registered nurse, trained in NZ with an undergraduate degree.
By the time I apply for work in Singapore I will have three years medical and ED experience.
Any idea what the pay rate is likely to be? and is it still quite hard to find work as an expat/english only speaking nurse. I was hoping for a clinic/office hours type job. Also is the pay better in private hospitals like parkway and raffles?
Thanks in advance

The following may give you an idea of the nursing jobs here ..

Here is the clincher: Private Clinics tend to employ chinese / malay or Tamil speaking, depending on their clientele .. though the last two are rarer ..

you need to limit your chances to Hospitals, or Large Medical centers, and discard the small-clinic group !

I can scan and post a sample of nursing jobs, for you to get an idea.
