    If you are wanting to take those courses for work in the US, do not bother. They are not accepted and will have to be retaken in the US if your job requires them.

    Would focus on retaking the NLE before anything else, that will be needed to work out of the Philippines.

    well, thats really good for wanting to learn
    what they said is true...those cert from Pi wont be accepted here, but the experience will benefit you in the future
    try your big local hospital
    if you are willing to spend, Philippine Heart Center et al have all those training courses
    good luck...and keep that positive attitude...

    hi thank you for your replies. is it true that you need clinical experience to be able to pass the nclex exam? i want to study more because i am waiting for local hospitals to call me. like for example phil heart center their hiring will be on march. and i don't know what to do for the remaining time.

    nclex exam is theoretically based.. you should base your answer by the book and not by what you experience...

    I second that. Most NCLEX review books will say that as well.

    That's why it is always better to review for NCLEX fresh from graduation or from NLE. If you work 1st then you might mix up the theoreticals w/ what is being practiced in the hospitals and mind you that every local hospital here have their own policies and practices, esp. for Gov't hospitals where you will have to contend w/ what instruments, equipments they have. Even for medicines.

    thank you for your replies a lot of nurses also said that it is better to take the nclex first before working as a staff nurse in a hospital. but my worry is that the waiting period after applying. i only applied for nclex this week. and i don't know what to do in those months that i will wait. i will study of course. but what else can i do (which i could find here in the philippines) to help me for my nclex besides studying?

    We have an NCLEX discussion board here to guide you to the ins and outs of NCLEX. You can just do self-study and just save your money you would have spend for review centers and just add it to your airfare and accomodations.

    hi.. mm.. i am also a bit confused wether to work 1st or to revw for the nclex. just passed nle last dec and im still tryin to figure out my next best step. tanx for the info.. im also looking for hopitals that conduct special trainings and seminars so as not to waste my tym if ever i wud be deciding to take my nclex. since application for nlcex wud rili take a lot of tym. eventhough it wud not be regarded wen i work in the us, it wud most likely help me enhance my skills.

    i hope someone can give us latest updates.. tanx. god bless
