    I just when to their web site, they have not graduated a single nurse, track record for these type of schools will lead to probable failure of the NLE.

    I'm sorry sir but you don't the right to say those words.... I am a graduate of new england college and the school is great,... they accept 2nd courses like...professors are fantastic...tuition fee very affordable...infact they have 30-40 students from u.s. who will study here ... so i'm a little bit offended by your remarks/....

    i hope i was able to enlighten someone

    When the above poster posted, not one person has pass the boards.

    According to what I read , 18 students have graduated and only 8 passed the NLE. Not so great.

    They do have a track record now. I think someone has posted a link to the passing rates of each school in another thread. I believe this school has a current passing rate of 44% where 8 out of 18 graduates passed the NLE

    jerro: I think you meant the list is wrong. I could say that all got the same list from the PRC, so it means that somebody somewhere had the wrong code for the school for at least 2 graduates. Since the PRC only processes the codes submitted, the most likely explanation is that someone from the school did not get it right so they were not credited to the school.

    In any case the current passing rate is based on less than 30 examinees from the school, and i would assume that they are the first batch ever to take the exam, based on the list. It is something to be proud of, but of course, the original poster would have to consider that the school has just graduated the first batch ever, and that the track record of passing the NLE still needs to be established. Would you care to post how many graduates in total did the school have last school year, so we could track in the future how many of those will pass the NLE later on? The PRC list covers only those who took the exams, but not how many actual graduates from each school.

    My heart goes out to you. But the forum must be based on hard facts to provide better, if not the best solution posted by a bewildered fellow.

    In my own (honest) opinion. Wait.. wait.. wait.. Patience (cliche) is a virtue you know

    Try New England College, 40 Quezon avenue Quezon city. Their website Ain't updated though

    I am one of their product. When I was studying there I had classmates who were from California and other states who were already LPN's and finishing their BSN degree at the College. Their Lectures were all pure online and the time that I got to be classmates with them were during our clinical exposures. The students from CA and other states were all given full credits for the courses (subjects) that they took in the US. I think the current group of foreign students are at Batch 5.

    Some of the students were US army and navy nurses.

    International students outnumber the local students at the school.

    I graduated and reviewed at NEC for my local NLE and I am proud that I made it with flying colors. By the way, I was an international student in the US - (NY) studying a different major , NEC credited all of my subjects, plus they allowed me to fully load on subjects as long as I sign a waiver. The waiver is for you to agree that yes you advanced a subject while taking the prerequisite subject, but if you fail the prerequisite then you fail the advanced subject as well. So, if you want to finish your NSG education ASAP, then I guess it is doable but sacrifice on your social life is a must.

    Hi, Im also planning to go back to the Philippines to continue my nursing education. Can you tell me if they credit classes that are taken here in the US? Also how long is the program at NEC and how much is the tuition fee over there. Hoping to hear from you, thanks.
