Racquel's Story: An International Nurse from the Philippines Moves to the U.S.
We are so excited to be able to share Racquel's story, an international nurse from the Philippines who moved to the U.S. to practice nursing.
Hi! I am a Registered Nurse from the Philippines for so many years, and the joy in caring for my patients, and the trust that develops with that relations, makes a difference in someone's life.
When I was a little girl, my only ultimate ambition was to become a nurse, being aware of how to do first aid for those in need - and I had plenty of first aid toys by then. But growing up I realized that being a nurse is so rewarding. It's when you look in to a patient's eyes, and see the window to their soul. When just a caring touch or word make a connection, and being able to establish a relationship based on trust that lets me guide my patient's to better health.
I was inspired to be a nurse in the US because this a profession that never stops learning, the opportunity for growth is unlimited, and more specially for the sake of my family's future. I always pray that my children can attain a good and successful future ahead of them.
Good thing I am with Conexus MedStaff, who become a good blessing to me, who remains very supportive, helpful, and always sees the best of me through the years. I am so thankful to them for the warmth, and sincerity they give to their nurses. I will be forever grateful to Sir Thomas, Cynthia, Veronica, Sir Andrew, Liza and Cianne, who I call Conexus 'Family' for giving me the strength and hope that I would be able to work as a nurse in the USA.
Now I am currently at the deployment stage with Conexus MedStaff, together with my family to start a new life and pursue my nursing career in USA, and I can say that all the trials and sacrifices has it's own reward.
Truly, it's worth the wait in God's perfect timing.
