Hello from Philippines

  1. Hi People!
    Thanks for the warm welcome, I just happened to log here yesterday and
    find it so interesting to read all the stuff.

    I am a nurse, I took the CGFNS and English exam and passed it, its a requirement for me to get a visa and be able to work in the US...( Hope you still want me to be included in the list)My papers is currently on process
    ( I need to wait for 12 months more )

    I will be working in Chicago, a nursing home apparently, according to my agency, my employer will be responsible to my NCLEX as soon as I get there.


    Just some few concerns though,... I have CGFNS certificate already...
    but I am still not applying for my VISA SCREEN...( I took my english exam last
    July 2005...I am very confused and feels like a complete MORON....my friend keeps on telling me that I need to apply for my Visa screen because my CGFNS will expire, but according to other friend, since i already have my CGFNS certificate, it will not expire anymore, acording to her,its my IELTS that will expire by july 2006 so I need to apply for my Visa screen.Im really confused!!!!!

    Kindly give me feedback please...

    Don't feel badly, please! I hear it is tough to negotiate those things. This link (below) will take you to the international nursing threads. You may be able to find the answers there, if not, just ask and someone will help you.

    You are also wondering about Chicago. Do you mean, is it a good place? I don't know Chicago but if you go to the Illinois nursing discussion board (below) you should be able to get more information.

    There is a post in your name on the International forum....................$17 is not a good salary for that area, unless they are paying a lot of your expenses.
