    Here's something to show to your mom or print it out:


    This is a recent article from the ABS-CBS about the no more demand for PH nurses, so even if you get your degree from the Phils and get a US license, there will still remain a preference for the US educated nurses.

    Yes, like of many of us recent PH grads, welcome to the "You're not so welcome club in CA or several other States".

    1). Get enrolled in two not so easy to get into So Cal schools (Nat'l Univ and MSMC), have $9,000 plus in your bank account ($7,000 tuition fees to be paid at the start, plus the extra $$ needed for books and supplies. You will need more testings, insurance, a car, certain health certifications and a few more mininum requirements before you're considered.

    2). Become an LVN by taking the NCLEX-PN exam, then try to enroll in a LVN-RN school, be prepared to either wait 2-3 years to get in (must still meet certain requirements: math, English, etc) or there are several private colleges but it's in the few $10,000's.

    3) Apply in other States that are not at this present time, enforcing the concurrency rules, at of now, there are at least 35 open States. Read on the many other topics posted here to find out more.
