HIV POSITIVE NURSE PRACTITIONER

Question

HI, I JUST RECENTLY DIAGNOSED AS HIV POSITIVE DURING ON MY PRE EMPLOYEMENT MEDICAL EXAM. I AM A FILIPINO NURSE. MY DREAM IS TO GO ABROAD AFTER 2 YEARS OF WORKING IN MY COUNTRY AS A NURSE, I AM THE BREAD WINNER. CAN I STILL PRACTICE MY PROFESSION AS A NURSE ABROAD? THANKS

Answer

Ability to work as a nurse will depend on what country you move to. It should not be a problem in the U.S, or in most of Europe. You will really need to check with AIDS and nursing organizations in the countries you are considering.
