I'm a BSN graduate 1995 from the Philippines. I have just worked for 8 months in there, 'cause there's no work everywhere for nurses (there's too much nurses back home) I even work as a volunteer RN with no pay.
I haven't worked since coming here in the U.S. But I had Long Term Care Nurse Certification Program, I.V. Certification, ACLS, EMT-A post graduate course, Basic EKG, Cardiac Catheter Care, and all this I took 1996 so I don't know if there still hold any value now that it's 1999.
I've passed my CGFNS Exam May 1996. So what I'm doing right now is try to apply for my NCLEX-RN Exam. I just have to compile all the necessary papers they need. I need to work to pay for the fees I need to take my exam. But I don't know what kind of work I can do (I'm considered a Graduate Nurse aren't I?) I've worked in my uncle and aunt's restaurant all this time to help them. I'm estranged with my uncle after he hit me.
But I don't want to work in another restaurant because it won't help me career wise. Maybe you have an idea what kind of job I can apply too that is medically related? Thanks!
