One happy nurse!!!

My NURSEIRELAND Experience! It was  in February 17, 2015 when my sister and I were hired by the Philippine Agency and NURSEIRELAND in Cebu, Philippines. They hired me eventhough I still had to work on my IELTS. NURSEIRELAND didn’t give up on me and they even waited 15 months for me to hit the target scores in IELTS. During the interview, Paolo asked me ” Why Ireland? ” . I paused for a moment before I answered him because I really didn’t have much idea about Ireland. However, I just told him that ” I want to go to Dublin where the movie LEAP YEAR was shot.Also,  UK, USA, New Zealand and Australia are too mainstream. I want to be the first among my colleagues to work in Ireland.” Apparently, I am the second nurse from our hospital in Cebu to work in Dublin and the first nurse happens to be my close friend (haha). I am definitely flying to Dublin today ( December 16,2016) and it is indeed LEAP YEAR. I don’t think it is COINCIDENCE but instead it is DESTINY. It only took me 6 months to complete the process from NMBI packet application until VISA approval. I will forever be thankful to NURSEIRELAND for not closing the doors for me to be in Dublin and most importantly for keeping their promise  that I will be working with my sister. Cherry Ann...

Caring for the Elderly and Yourself

Caring for the elderly is a tough job that requires a lot of compassion, humanity, and even a sense of humor. Anyone who works in this honorable field knows that it is not for everyone. It takes a really special type of person to work as a Care Assistant, Nurse, or Nursing Home support staff.   There are many challenges involved in caring for the elderly. In many cases, the family of the resident or patient had to make the very tough decision to put the care of their loved on in the hands of a home nurse or nursing home. This leads to the toughest part of caring for the elderly: Resistance to Care.   Resistance to Care is a very normal feeling. No one wants to accept the fact that they need help and can no longer do everything for themselves as they once did. This resistance stems from feelings of loss: Loss of independence, loss of their privacy in some cases, loss of their memory or normal brain and body functions, and loss of their old life as they knew it.   As a carer, your service in invaluable. Many residents and their families might see a nursing home as an institution or a hospital and this may make the transition for them very difficult to accept. However, you must remember that you are the face of the nursing home and you represent the type of care they receive. You have this job because you are a caring, warm, empathetic person and you are likely good at building relationships with your patients and residents to mke...
