Seriously, I am a US national, and am interested in attending nursing school
in phil. I am well educated and have decided to take up nursing. I am very competitive here as a student, but going through the application process, waiting to get through the lottery system and in a slot, and complete the RN program will take 4 yrs. minimum. I could transfer to phil with my MS in biology and fiinsh in 2 years (saving myself 2 years).....but I am concerned about the language barrier........I don't speak Tagalog......How big a problem would this be getting through the academic curriculum and working with patients as well?
I know I would need a visa and am familiar with Filipino culture and issues for Filipino nurses, and am not considering this prospect blindly, but could use some help with issues I might have in an NCR nusring program. Does anyone know any specific nursing programs
that might be more accommodating to me or where my language barrier would be less of an issue?
Thanks for your help,
