Share Your Story: Mignon
If there’s one thing we are proud of here at Conexus Medstaff, it’s our community of dedicated people; that’s our nurses out at work in the USA, our nurses who are waiting for their deployment date, our network of student nurses preparing for their exams, and not forgetting our nurse’s families and friends. We love hearing your stories and we are sure other people would love to hear them too. Within our social community we want to make sure that everyone gets chance to share their story and to tell everyone what it’s really like to embark on a dream nursing career in the USA. Today we are going to share Mignon’s story who arrived in the USA last week with her husband and two kids!
Hi, I ‘m Mignon, a Registered Nurse from Philippines and I have been working as a nurse for 14 years and 6 months.
I admired nurses when I was a kid, so that’s one of the reason I wanted to become a nurse. I liked looking at them in white uniform so I dreamt of becoming one. The thing I find most rewarding about nursing is when the patient I handle gets well. Especially when you are walking in the street and suddenly someone will stop you just to tell you “Hey do you still remember me? I was your patient and you took good care of me” And then would say… “Thank you.”
I was inspired to become a nurse in the USA because not only is it a great opportunity but also because all of my friends who have made the move to the US are successful both professionally and personally.
The hardest part of this process has been waiting for the visa application for several years, however I choose to be sponsored by Conexus Medstaff because they take good care of their nurses. They have hospital clients and provide good opportunity. In addition, they have been very supportive and patient with me; it took me almost two years to pass my IELTS exam. I was already having problems especially finances I should have been the one reaching out but instead it was Conexus Medstaff and they offered help so I can get through my IELTS. They immediately enrolled me in a review class and indeed I passed the exam. Most of all, everybody in Conexus Medstaff are warmth, accommodating and friendly.
What I will miss most about home is my family, friends and colleagues however I am really forward to living in the USA and the good working environment, friendly neighbourhood and comfortable life which will include walking in the park with my family.
My dream is to provide my children with the best possible comfort in life!
