    Be advised if you wish to be licensed as a practical nurse in NJ you will no longer be able to if you attend a practical nursing program in the Philippines (such as Kennedy Global) as per the NJBON ruling from earlier this year (March 2012: http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/nursin...min_030212.pdf )
    "Philippines LPN Schools – nursing programs in the Philippines are not approved by the Board in that country, but instead by the Dept of Education.
    A discussion ensued regarding the acceptance of the applications from applicants who completed their education in the Philippines.
    After discussion, the Board upon a motion made by Connie Wilson and duly seconded by Theresa Beck voted that the Board does not recognize schools of nursing if they are not approved by Boards of Nursing or an entity that is equivalent. The motion carried."

    Since Kennedy Global (nor is practical nursing as a profession) is not recognized by the PRC/board of nursing equivalent in the Philippines this educational program is not recognized by NJBON. Kennedy Global is not accredited by the NLNAC (they are a member of the NLN but that has no bearing on their accreditation) and are only accredited by TESDA which is an educational accreditation not a professional or practical nursing education.

    Kababayan, stay away from this organization! I have friends who checked them out and Kennedy promises you the moon and the stars and at the end you will end with dry mud with fake glitters.

    Not the best choice as most states are cracking down on schools not recognized in their own county. There is no such credential as LPN in the Philippines. Many have had issues attending this school. PN programs in the US can be rather affordable, especially the public programs

    Do you plan on living and working in Florida? There is no US board of nursing that approves overseas nursing programs
