Hello, I just graduated from with my BSN from Philippines. I am ready to come to America and find work, I understand there is lots of work for nurses in most parts of the USA.
I think Texas is going to be my destination, I have other batchmates whom are now working in Texas, Some in Lubbock, Houston and Dallas. I look at BON 4 Texas, and requirements seem straightforward. I will send my CES in this week, and I will start my application to Texas BON.
I have decided to not take my local exam in Philippines and study for NCLEX. How long is review class in USA for NCLEX and what is cost? I also heard that NCLEX is offered daily.
What will be starting salary in Dallas? Will I be paid full rate for training? I look forward to being able to help support my family when I start working in USA.
Can I get my Social Security card as soon as I enter the USA? I will plan on 3 to 4 months of paperwork in USA once I arrive in order to get my affairs in order and start my job search. It is difficult to work as nurse in Philippines cuz no hospitals will hire new nurse, and I look forward to being the best nurse I can be in America
