gaya ng kanyang propesyon, ganito rin mismo ang nararamdaman ko paminsan minsan, may pagkakataong tinatanong ko rin ang aking sarili kung anu kaya kung iba ang ginagawa at iba ang propesyon ko sa trabaho. GUSTO KO NAMAN MAGING ISANG REGISTERED NURSE! color transform.

sulat ng isang RN working abroad!!!

White changes...

I want to be a psychologist...this is actually my dream. I want to read minds and interpret them in a way that i understand them. But after a long journey of life and studies, napunta ako sa medical side...NURSING!

I wanted to on the first palce, i like the way the lessons flow. And the uniform, wow! PURE WHITE. Looks clean and pure. Respected ang school, top natcher sa buong nursing field. Mahigpit sa rules. Mahirap ang turo. From minor to major subjects like anatomy, pharmacology and psychiatric nursing. Una sa classroom then clinic settings then hospital and patient’s bed side settings. Lecture sa araw, aral at duty sa gabi. Paulit ulit...parang cycle sa photosynthesis. Kakapagod agad. Mabilis makapuno ng laman ng utak. Makakapal na aklat...maraming papel tungkol sa mga sakit at lunas.. paulit paulit...kakasawa.

After all, its not the books that matters anymore, its not the knowledge that u have already, its now your heart..what is inside of it?? Your care...your touch...ako na ata ang pinakamasayang tao pag nakikita kong gumagaling ang pasyente ko. Kapag nakikita ko na may ngiti sila kahit may sakit. Kapag sinasabi nilang parte ako ng kanilang recovery. Mahirap mag alaga ng may sakit, you have to be with them all times and put the same shoes they are wearing. Sometimes at minsan kadalasan wala ng time for our own needs like kumain at umihi. Mahal ko mga pasyente ko..napapalapit ako sa kanila. Madali lang sundin ang orders ng doctor, pero mahirap itama ang lahat ng bagay na makakabuti sa kanila. I experienced to give care to my own father and definitely hindi ito madali. Mas maraming tanong at doubts. Mas mataas ang expectations.

I am still young in my professions. Marami pang naghihintay na pagsubok na may kaalaman.

Umalis ako ng pilipinas at sumubok sa ibang bansa. Iba ang lahat. Ibang lahi, ibang routines, ibang salita. Kakabaliw sa una. Parang di mo malalampasan. Ayoko na maging nurse. Gusto ko ng magiba ng propesyon. Ayoko na magalaga ng ibang tao. Oo, pilipino ang mahusay dito pero malupit sila sa kabila ng kabutihan mo. Parang ayaw ko na magsuot ng puti. Ayoko ng tawaging NURSE dahil di na bagay sakin. Gusto ko na ng ibang mundo.

Naniniwala ako sa tinatawag nilang calling..Nursing are both a profession and vocation. Endless...

Hindi ko pinagsisihan na napasok ako sa propesyon na to. Life is a priority! From airway to breathing to circulation. Hindi ito papel na itatapon lang pag nagkamali. Hindi nauulit ang buhay. Pero narerevive! Nakapagaalaga ka mula sa pinakamahirap hanggang pinakamayaman sa mundo...sikat man o hindi, magkakaiba man ang kulay ng balat at salita. Iisa lang ang dapat na meron ka, magic toucH!!

The power to care and heal. Anyway at the end of the road, credit will be yours. Life was there because of you...

I'm proud of Pinoy nurses everywhere in the world. Ibang iba sila kung magbigay ng Tender Loving Care sa mga pasyente - kaya nga maraming dayuhang employer ang kumukuha sa kanila. I should know, dahil isa rin akong nurse.

I went through that phase. Lalo na noong nasa college pa at newbie ako sa workforce (during the more stressful days). But through time, I realized that I am where I should be. At yung gusto ko talaga eh pwede ko pa rin naman gawin. I believe that there's indeed a "calling".

Nag bago din ako ng profession, hindi sa kagustuhan ko kung hindi dahil sa dikta ng panahon. Noong dekada 80, bagsak ang ating ekonomiya at madalang ang nanganga-ilangan ng enhinyero. Sa IT lang ang nakikita kong maganda ang kinabukasan. Kaya balik-aral ako at hindi naman ako nagsisi sa aking desisyon.

Taas ang kamay ko sa mga nurses na yan, kasi dakila ang kanilang propesyon at..........malaki ang kita!

Maganda ang kanyang mensahe pero medyo nagkaroon ng conflict sa panglimang talata. Hindi ko tuloy naunawaan kung ayaw o gusto pa niyang ipagpatuloy ang pagnu-nurse.

Akala ko ayos lang kapag nagtatrabaho ang isang Filipino nurse sa ibang bansa, hirap din pala tulad ng isang beterinaryo. Hindi pala ako nag-iisa. U

Hindi nauulit ang buhay. Pero narerevive! >>> great! dapat ganito mag isip ang maraming noypi.

A great amount of dedication is needed to become a successful nurse, isa it sa mga hinahangaan kong career, it takes a lot of courage, patience and understanding in caring sick people lalo pa't hindi mo sila kilala o kamag-anak man lamang.

Just like the teachers and other public service careers, nurses are real heroes in our time.

i was just with a group of new nurses training for work here in japan. marami sa kanila nagtatanong na rin kung bakit nga ba sila napadpad dito. aside kasi sa regular adjustments, kailangan pa nilang matuto ng nihonggo. pero i'm sure kakayanin nila lahat ng pagsubok. pinoy pa!

Chyng said...

lucky you, narealize mo ang calling habang may time at energy pa. go go! :D

Solo said...

On what was written down there. We should know now na dapat maging proud tayo sa ating mga nurse. They are one of a kind! Magaling sa pag-aalaga. Halos na ata ng mga nanga2ilangan ng mga nurse na country eh sa pinas kumukuha. Ang pinoy na nurse kasi di lang ang katawan ang ibinibigay sa pag-aalaga kundi pati ang kanilang puso. Kaya ang sarap nilang mag-alaga. ;D I am very proud of our Filipino Nurses! ;D

Astig talaga tayong mga Pinoy!

May Aunt is also a nurse abroad and foreigners love the Filipino nurses because they are not only after for pay but they really love their work and vocation on caring for the sick.

Hi. Nurse on Call here, just dropping by from the Oasis Capital of UAE, Al Ain.

Proud ako sa mga Pinoy at Pinoy nurses, saan man silang sulok at parte ng mundo mapadpad. Kakaiba ang pag-aalagang naibibigay nila. Bukod sa pagiging malinis, talagang may tinatawag na 'tender loving care"...I should know, I am a nurse.

Naisulat ng author ang lahat ng pinagdaanan nya bago naging nurse, ang hirap nya sa pagiging nurse.May mga reklamo sya, pero tingin ko, isa lamang yung pang alis ng pagod at sama ng loob pero love nya pa rin ang profession nya, I should know kasi minsan ganyan din ako.

It is really difficult to work abroad, with people of different descent, culture and beliefs but at the end of the day,a nurse is always a nurse, no matter how hard it is...the real meaning of it is...VOCATION.

Have a nice day.

If you are unhappy in your profession, you should not remain looking out the window at night watching the twinkling stars – while sighing, moaning, dreaming.

Reach for that star, the one that you really like. Pick it and keep it in your bosom and treasure it.

We can't dilly-dally in life. We can't wallow in our past mistakes, regrets, misfortunes, things that we did and did not do. Life is short, no matter how long you live.

Robert Hastings was indeed profound when he said:

"It isn't the burdens of today that drive men mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today."

Therefore, whatever you want to do, do it... now.

And be happy.

The future is now.
