Quote from dindog
To be honest, I'm doing this because I want to get out of the Philippines before the political situation here gets worse but that doesn't mean that it's against my will to take up nursing. Nope, it isn't. I the flexible type. I learn how to love what I do. Also, I've heard a lot of good things about nurses in the US like health benefits, high starting pay rate, flexible work schedule (in homes, as temporary jobs or "sideline"), etc...
My wife is currently taking up nursing and if I take up nursing this coming April or May '07, I may graduate October '09 while she will graduate Mar '08. That means I'll be graduating approximately at the same time as when our immigrant visa is approved (assuming all requirements are met by my wife and that visa screening will take a year or so). Do you think this is a good idea? Do you think my calculation is correct?
Your feedbacks please, specially those who already have green cards.
its never to late dindog, i have compiled a couple of articles in this site to keep my hopes high, read it and maybe it will also help keep your hopes high. http://kccx.5.forumer.com/index.php?showtopic=9
, read the links in the second post of this thread, its not too late dindog, i am planning of going to Siliman next year. its already a 100% go for me unless something screws it up.
by the way i am an engineering student...for details as to where i graduated what engineering degree i have just pm me. my advise to you is not to go to schools
which offer speedy graduation at the expense of uncertainty and possible headaches due to the technicalities of their second courser curiculum...i would go to a reputable nursing school
which will accept 2nd coursers. SU is one of them...my friend an eng technology grad will take up nuirsing in bacolod too...i think he picked USLS.
well? see ya in the nursing world my fellow engineer grad!
