Hello everyone! I have been confused/undecided since the results of my june board exam were released last month. Now that I have passed and have my RN license, what should I do next? Ive been trying to figure things out but I just cant come up with a good plan. I hope you guys can help me decide.
Here are the things that confuses me:
a. I'd like to take the NCLEX-RN exam by next year. I have the requirements and all but I am not sure if I should review right away or wait until I get my ATT.
b. My mother wants me to work in a hospital while reviewing for my nclex which I personally object. I dont think i can review very well for it while working as a nurse since nurses here in the philippines are so underpaid and overworked. But, she wants me to get an experience right away.
c. After taking the NCLEX-RN, I want to look for a hospital in California, USA that could petition me with getting a green card.
d. However, while looking at different hospitals, I noticed that they have other requirements such as BLS, ACLS, and IV. I was wondering if they also consider the ones that I took in a foreign country.
e. I want to go to the US right away without any experience, would that be possible?
f. Lastly, would it be a good idea if I go with a search firm or a recruitment agency?
Thank you very much.
