Thinking of joining the Conexus community? Read some of our candidates' stories below.
I am a Filipino BSN-RN working in a step-down unit in Arizona, USA. I migrated here in October 2012. Since then (and even up to now that I am directly hired by the hospital where they have deployed me), I still communicate with Conexus; in fact, I have built friendships with most of them. This good relationship led me to refer a Filipino friend who is already here in the US and I am happy with the way Conexus has helped her too.
Conexus has assisted me throughout the process and has paid all fees to complete the requirements I need to work here in the US. They also helped me obtain an Immigration Visa, not only for me but for my entire family. Arriving in the US, Conexus arranged my travel and accommodation. They have paid for my first-month apartment rental in anticipation that I might not be able to start working while waiting for my RN license. They have given me a sign-in bonus which is enough to buy what is necessary to start.
Conexus has assured me that I have an employer who has hired me based on my competencies and skills. I received relevant benefits which include overtime pay, holiday pay, health, and dental insurance, paid leaves and others that they have specifically outlined in my contract of employment.
Throughout this placement process, Conexus has maintained an open line of communication with me, and I believe with the rest of their nurses. Being one of their first nurses deployed in the US, they have been open for suggestions, they valued my opinions and I saw them change their process through this date to better serve their clients. In fact, I have volunteered to offer my service as their Ambassador to meet and greet the new nurses coming in town to help better serve them.
Looking back three years, I am grateful with what I have achieved, not really bragging, but I have bought my family a nice comfortable pool home, mobilized them with cars, my three sons are all outstanding in school, my husband has landed a decent IT job in the same hospital where I work and I simply love my life and my job. How did these all start? When Conexus helped me come here to the US.
Conexus may still be young in this industry but their willingness and being open to learn and achieve more is what sets them apart from the rest of the companies who have been in this business for years and has stopped hearing from their nurses.
Thank you for the email and thank you for the effort you spent to link me with NGHA, it was a lovely experience and very smooth too. With your help, all the required documents were there and the file was complete before arrival.
The journey was safe and smooth. I would like to thank you again for all the efforts and I hope to have a continuous working relationship with each other.

The staff at Conexus have been absolutely amazing. Kirsty Docwra in the UK office gave me so much advice and support on obtaining my FCCPT certificate and sitting the NPTE. Once I was at the stage of having a US license she passed me over to Tom Konitzer in the United States.
Tom listened to exactly what were the most important issues for me to relocate to the US with a young family and most certainly delivered. Both Kirsty and Tom have been so professional yet friendly and always approachable about the tiniest of irrelevant queries I have had. Communication is excellent with any contact responded to quickly. I can honestly say they made me feel like I was their only client. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone wanting to do the same.

It has always been my dream to see and feel what life in the West is. Journeying everyday through challenges, never have I thought about letting go of my dreams. With the help of Conexus, my dreams turned into reality. Taking this huge step, my two kids and I left our home country, the Philippines, to start a new life in West Virginia.
We are so thankful to Conexus for supporting us all throughout this journey. For accommodating us in every possible way, my family extends our gratitude to you. Thank you for introducing to us Jason, a co-worker, during our trip here in the United States, for making sure that we won’t be traveling the whole trip alone, for the housing accommodation, for introducing me to the management of the hospital and lastly, for assuring us that we can survive this drastic change in our lives. We really appreciate the effort you exerted since day one. You don’t just grant wishes and dreams, you also build a friendship.

I would like to thank Conexus for the great help they offered, which made the transition process from the UK to Saudi easy and well organized. They were very kind and helpful.

It’s not easy to leave everything behind, the comfort, the usual everyday things, but the time came to venture to a new chapter in my life. Thanks to Conexus this was made possible. It’s hard enough to go through all the process without guidance, but Conexus and their staff held my hand from start to finish. This was just a dream that I thought would never come true.
Through the years they were constantly updating us on what was happening up to the dates of the interview at the embassy. Manila-based staff was kind enough to get me through step by step from my medical exam to the interview at the embassy. Finally, the time came for our flight – everything was provided and we were guided through until we finally got to the US. It was a pretty long way just to get here, but finally, we did.
Tom, Cynthia and Crystal (from Conexus) were kind enough to meet us at Charleston airport even though it was almost 1 am, and brought us to the hotel for the night, had rooms ready for us, and some breakfast that morning. Then a one hour drive wasn't a long one as they were talking us through what was going to happen for the week. They were with us through it all from getting around to buy stuff, helping us get settled in our comfortable apartments and meeting hospital personnel. I would like to thank the Staff of Conexus for everything they have done, for without the Lord's grace and guidance upon us this would not be possible. Thank you.
Michelle S, RN
I'll be forever grateful to Conexus for helping me achieve a once in a lifetime opportunity given to a selected few. Coming to America was never going to be easy, nevertheless, I kept myself busy working in UAE while the seemingly endless process is taking place so, without me knowing it, my deployment date was actually at hand!
I still can't believe that my American Dream will happen but with prayers and keeping a hopeful heart - everything is possible! I'm equally grateful for today's technology that means, despite the distance, I am able to communicate with Tom (at Conexus) and his staff, with regards to all the proceedings and requirements that their candidates need to comply. I would admit, it's a mutual effort from the candidate and Conexus. If I was non-compliant of whatever was asked of me, I wouldn't be here in Wyoming. Thank you very much to the management and staff of Conexus and professionals especially to Liza of the Philippines office, kudos to her, and to the rest of the candidates waiting for their deployment. Live the dream!
I want to express my words of thanks to you and all the staff of Conexus for all your work in finding a job for me.
I am in a state of anxiety although excitement is leading me along. I am looking forward to meeting you very soon. THANK YOU.
