"I've been trying so hard to find the best agency to help me live my American dream even before I graduated, I haven't been lucky enough; but while going through my inbox I came across an old inquiry to Health Carousel, I reached out and they were quick to respond, I thought it would be the same rejection as the old agencies I have inquired, but no, after finding out that I met their basic requirements, they filed for my petition and I was so overwhelmed. I complied and can't believe I'm actually here now."What do you like most about working with our client? "It is the first hospital I ever worked with in the US, I was anxious about how the staff/hospital/patients would be like. I'm glad that on the first day of orientation they were so welcoming and so helpful about my transition to US healthcare. I'm glad I am surrounded by great people."What do you love most about being a RN? "As a RN we take pride in being the front liner in providing direct care to all individuals, we cater more time to our patients than any other allied healthcare, and this is something special and that I love about being a RN."What is your favorite quote? "Behind great doctors are even greater nurses."Tell us something unique about you! "In just about a month here in the US not knowing about the roads/freeways/how traffic is, I got to drive as far away to Arizona. That's about a 10 hours long drive and I made it alive. I got to see my aunt and uncle there and the best part is that I was able to fetch my mom and take her with me to New Mexico (next is to bring my dad too). Being an Igorot/Ilokano Filipino I guess I'm lucky enough to be able to speak other Filipino native languages."If you are not a current PassportUSA employee, simply register with us today and we'll get your journey to the USA underway!
