I heard from a couple of my friends in school saying that I wouldnt be able to take the NCLEX in Ca because the requirements is different from the curriculum of my school. And also, I would have to obtain a license from the country in which I graduated from. Since I am not a Philippines citizen, would I still need to be licensed in the Philippines in order to take the NCLEX in the US?
Quote from Kuyafern
Affordable Care Act. This means a majority of us citizens can now afford healthcare. More patients then that might mean an increase in demand of nurses. It's just a theory. Of course the US will prioritize their US graduates first than us citizens that went to an international school.
Yes, but even with the almost 50% unemployment rate for just CA new grads alone, it will still not help with the hospital's tight budget and financial constraints to hire more new grads, and with more older nurses not retiring due to financial security and loss of their retirement net egg, it will be even just as bad with the ACA.
Actual enforcement will not happen till 2014 and if it doesn't get killed in Congress if Obama is out of office or gets re-voted out by the Rep. party, it will not do anything to the hiring of new nurses.
