    One thing also, RNs can go into specialization like in ER, ICU, OR, NP or CRNA. LPNs don't. And in the American setting, LPNs rely on RNs for leadership. So if you are in the Philippines take the BSN instead and be an RN here in the US. Plus the pay is much higher for RNs. And there many opportunities available if one is an RN.

    thanks everyone for the replies. i'm a u.s citizen and i'd like to know how would i get contact with the lvn schools in the philippines.?

    any idea?

    thank you
    just a little piece of advise from your fellow american cit.....if you want to study lpn in the philippines? why not study bsn instead? there are a lot of good schools in the philippines. since you are already an american citizen, you are not required to take the local board exam there..you can go straight taking the licensure exam in the us, ( nclexrn). i personally don't require studying lpn/lvn courses in the phil. because you will never know if its credited here in the usa..plus i don't know if they will teach you a better skills there, lpn classes here in the us is very strict...you need to pass all the competencies before graduating...of coarse, safety is a must...i say its better to study lpn/lvn here. there are many colleges here in the us that offers lpn courses in less than two years, ( hawaii community colleges offers 3 semesters, not including the prerecquisite classes). and if you finished your bsn in the philippines, even if you still want to be an lpn, then you can take the nclex-pn and maybe proceed with nclex-rn later on..always aim high! goodluck

    My husband is an RN, but his work in the Phils is non RN related.
    In case, we are able to go to the US w/ my immigration visa as RN,
    what are the requirements needed before he can take the NCLEX-LPN?

    Well, you have to check the state where you will regarding the requirements. If your husband is a BSN graduate in the Philippines, then he can take the NCLEX-RN though he can also take the NCLEX-PN.

    Hello, i was wondering if you got into the LPN program in the Philippines? I found one LPN school in the PI and its called kennedy review center or KRC. However am still kind of hesitant to get into there program unless i talk to somebody who graduated there and prove that the classes that i'll be taking will be accredited here to the US when i get into a BSN program.

    Just to clarify something. IF you are a green card holder and a US citizen then it would be fine to take those LPN programs that are offered in some schools in the philippines, like Philippines Paramedical and Technical School? Thanks..

    What we are trying to explain over and over again: Why would someone want to attend school for a licensed program that is not even accepted for licensure in the country where you would be attending? How many of the instructors truly know the differences between the RN and the LPN/LVN role?

    Next issue is that you do not see these programs marketed in the US, but almost entirely in the Philippines and to students that when they complete the one year program cannot do a thing with it. It is not acceptable for a visa to work in the US, but the schools fail to pass that little bit of information on to the prospective students. The only way to the US is with an illegal visa as unskilled laborer and then the nurse is subject to deportation for immigration fraud. Not a good thing.

    From your previous posts, your goal is to go on for the BSN, suggest that you thoroughly check things out with schools that you are interested in to see if they will give you credit for the LPN program in Pi, suspect that many will not, and you will be repeating some needed classes.

    And as I keep stating over and over again, when you try to take shortcuts, it turns to bite you on the backside. The number of Americans that you will find at these programs is very small, and so it is going to be hard to see how many have gone on with what you wish to do. You may find it harder than you expected.

    There are schools for LPN in the Philippines, but you have to be really careful which one you choose. I would advise going to every school you would consider and screening them personally.

    I got my LVN license here in the U.S. I will need to go back to the U.S.. I would like to go to school for RN. Will my credits be transferrable? Are there any careers at all in the Philippines I could get into with my LVN license?

    LPN isn't recognised in the Philippines therefore I doubt that you will be able to find a job there in the Philippines. Think about it there are already many many Philippine RN's struggling to find work

    Regarding whether your training is acceptable that will depend on the course, BON/BRN and requirements

    Bit confused on what you are saying but are you looking at doing your RN in the Philippines and then going back to the US?

    If Kennedy Global is still doing distance/online theory courses and sending you to the Philippines for clinicals, it will not be accepted in California. They use to advertise that they were approved by the US Board of Nursing. There is NO US Board of Nursing for LPN/LVNs. They were advertising big in San Francisco and Houston.

    I don't understand why the LPN schools in the Philippines are still allowed to operate. Their graduates are not recognized by the Philippine government. Their graduates are not quallified to immigrate based on their "education." And there are hundreds of thousands of more qualified, better educated, jobless registered nurses in the Philippines.

    If you want to waste money and time, why not just burn your money, and watch the clouds go by instead of attending an LPN school in the Philippines?
