    Are you referring to the two schools? If so, I have not as I can't afford to pay the expensive tuition at this time.

    I'm sure that with over a thousand plus foreign students also going to try to get into these two schools, they could either be a waiting list or the time period to apply has gone by and need to wait for the time the applications are open, once you have fulfilled all the other minimum requirements they are asking for.

    I do know that the school in San Francisco (SFSU) not only filled up fast with about over 900 foreign applicants after 1-2 spots, there was not only ones from PH, but from China, India and Russia and I'm sure other countries as well.
    Steppybay,

    I just called the nursing department in SFSU and mentioned about the MS/OB deficiencies and they said that they offer no such thing to people in our situation. They told me that I'd need to be a full time student enrolled in the whole nursing program to take those courses.

    Where did you get that information about those 900 foreign applicants applying for 1-2 spots? Maybe you are reffering to the actual whole BSN program they offer, as that is impacted. Because they made no mention of programs for foreign grads with the 2 deficiencies.

    I don't have any more information on CSU-Fresno other than what I posted or a few others. You might want to google that campus and e-mail the nursing director there.

    Good question about others enrolling in those schools offering the deficiency courses, there have been one or two saying they are in SFSU, MSMC or National Univ., someone here has a cousin instructor at Unitek, BUT no one has ever come back to report they are actually truly enrolled.

    Not sure, if it means they didn't get in, they are enrolled but too busy to let us know or it's so competitive as it's not only PH students but students from all over the globe, that they are keeping quiet as it's truly a tough decision, as it's between friends and themselves, well, it's every person for themselves. Imagine if one friend gets the one or two open spots, that didn't know it before and that person giving the information is unlucky and not selected.
    By the way, the MSMU you are referring to... is that Mount St. Mary's University in Maryland? I haven't heard of any MSMU in California.

    Also, have you tried University of San Francisco (USF)?

    I already tried USF but they don't have those offers for MS and OB.And as far as I know,It's really hard to get in the Universities because they need a lot of requirements such as passing score of IELTS,a strong recommendation from a nursing director,an overall GPA of 3.5 or above etc.An some of them only accepts full time students.

    MSMC....is Mt. St. Mary's College in the Los Angeles, CA area.....private school.

    USF is also a private college, but very expensive tuition like $35,000 a year or about $50,000 to attend with housing and books!!

    But the two nurses I met graduated from there last year and if you're smart and maintain annual high grades, the school pays for each year's tuition. Nice!

    Both were hired into their choice of hospitals just before they graduated and got a very nice starting new grad salary with night shifts pay and weekend differentials, they will make over $100,000 a year!

    One of the nurses is a Filipina, she's not only one very smart cookie but looks like a model.

    Ok, earlier you wrote MSMU and when I googled it, only MSMU in Maryland came up. Thanks for clarifying that it's not MSMU but instead MSMC.

    Are you totally positive that there is no other school out there doing the same thing that CSU Fresno is doing? By you saying we need to come in as a new student... That's another way of saying starting school all over?
    Yes unfortunately that is the case.

    Anyone who tells you they will make over $100k per year as starting nurses is pulling your leg, have not actually worked for a year to really see how the pay/hour cycle goes, or they are just plain hot air. Tell them to get real.

    You definitely don't know the facts!

    Stanford Univ. Med Center (in CA) starts minimum at $55.00 (NEW GRAD pay scale). I have also seen her paycheck!

    I suggest you can easily ask any NG at Stanford what they are paying if you're there.

    Lucile Packard Hospital (a sister hospital to Stanford) they pay less but one can easily make close to $100K.

    These are both Nor Cal based hospitals.

    Sure. Have you worked there for a year at least or did you just see one paycheck. Big difference. I have yet to meet anyone flashing their W2s around. FYI I used to work NorCal. Like I said HOT AIR

    What don't you understand?

    I didn't say I worked there for a year, I'm saying a USF Filipina nursing friend I met is actually working there in the Stanford hospital.

    The reason I was able to look at her paycheck stub was we were at dinner with about 6 other friends, talked about everything and somehow (without BRAGGING), the topic of her 2012 New Grad hospital job came up.

    Someone asked her about the pay there, she said $55, we ALL said "get out of here, girl". She just so happen to have her paycheck stub. It CLEARLY said $47.00 per hour and with differentials it was actually $55. So it was not a W2 form.

    It was a very easy math deduction with a calculator, she was making over $100,000, hands down!!

    She just started working since June, 2012 less than one year!!

    Here read the May 7, 2012 topic:

    http://allnurses.com/registered-nurs...926-page2.html

    Btw, notice there's another Nor Cal paying over $46 an hour, add some diff's to that, easily get close to the $100K and her other friend works there in the ICU as 2012 new grad.

    It is what it is.

    You must have worked in Nor Cal in the 1970's? Or truly don't know recent salary ranges in that area?

    I have nothing but respect for the Boards decision. If we were in their place we would do the same, and to protect our own, we would strictly enforce rules that were granted a degree of leniency due to the shortage, and people must acknowledge that.

    All the hardships I am experiencing right now, all the sense of hopelessness, if anything, it granted me one thing: appreciation
    of the efforts and the labor others had to endure to get to where they are now
