Each month, our International Employee Supervisor Team selects one or two spectacular A-players on assignment to showcase their journey. We asked our healthcare professional to share his or her story of perseverance, adjustment, and professional growth.
Ivy Rose is from the Philippines and is currently working at a client facility in Georgia. She has been working in her field for 15 years and has been with PassportUSA for over one year.
Why did you decide to become a registered nurse? “I was sick a lot when I was little so I was used to visiting the hospital. I learned to admire the work of nurses and doctors that treated me, so I grew up knowing I’ll be a nurse someday.”
Before coming to the U.S., where did you practice your profession? “I started working in the Philippines where I had the chance to work in the Medical-Surgical Unit, OR, PACU, and Endoscopy.
Why did you want to come to the U.S.? “I believed coming to the U.S. would open many opportunities for me to grow personally and professionally. With the encouragement of my relative who used to work in the U.S., I decided to give it a try.”
How did you first hear of PassportUSA? “I first heard about PassportUSA from a friend but at that time I wasn’t ready to come to the U.S. and even forgot about it. Then one day as I was browsing the internet, I saw an advertisement about PassportUSA and that was the start of my U.S. journey.”
How is your experience working with your PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor (IES) so far? “I can say that my IES is one of the best. She’s very committed to her work which makes me feel secure to work in the U.S. because I know I can always rely on someone who will be there to help me with any difficulties I might face during my U.S. transition.”
Would you recommend PassportUSA to other people and why? “I surely will. Because generally, my experience working with the team has been very smooth since the day I applied, and even now that I’m already working here. I even encouraged my sister to choose PassportUSA just in case she decides to work here in the future.”
How does working in the U.S. differ from your healthcare career abroad? “It’s different technologically and culturally. I get to try new things and was amazed at the technologies or machines being used here. You learn to work with and respect different cultures.”
What is your favorite inspirational quote? “To get through the hardest journey, we need to take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.”
