It must have been asked a lot already but I really need some guidance. You see, I am a filipina and I was a 2nd year college student in St. Paul QC back in 2006-2007? before I got petitioned by my mother here in Florida. I just earned my AA in Health Science in a community college but I kept failing to enter the AS nursing program. I already attempted 3x (once a year only) with a GPA of 3.24. I just felt like it is so competitive here that I can't get in. I could try other schools in Ocala but I do not have the resources to have my own place and move to other places besides here. I could try again this year but I doubt I'd get in since the curriculum is ever changing.
My mother is retired. I might have my dad help me out if I were to study in the Philippines.
I was wondering what if I just go back home in the Philippines and finish a BSN degree? I wonder which school accepts credits/units from the US. I am currently working in a hospital as a Stat Clerk and my employer says they are willing to take me back as a nurse after graduation if I resign respectfully and professionally. I was also a CNA for 3 years before this job. I will be applying for naturalization this year so I have this whole year to save up and decide whether to keep trying here in the US or go back to the Philippines.
I do not know what to do. I've read a lot of forums saying there's no job anymore or US might not credit the ones I take in the Philippines. Any advice is welcome. I'm sorry if my english is awkward. There's a lot going on in my head.
If nursing is not an option, I don't mind becoming a PT or medical technologist as well.
I really want to advance on the medical field. I thank you in advance for all the comments and suggestions.
