thank you very much for your reply. Yes, I have learned of the requirements needed in Cali and Oregon. Isn't my BSN degree in the Philippines is not an exemption for learning a month or so of practical nursing ? so that hopefully I would take the written exams to measure my competency. and you are right, I know that Nclex is not just the step for acquiring NCLEX.
well, my cases would be a problem in cali because I got my OB cases when I was 3rd year which will be incongruent for them because I learned my Maternal Nursing during my 2nd year. Hopefully, my application in California will run smoothly since I just graduated this year with improved clinical hours.
and as for Oregon, nursing education must be evaluated by a CES, prior to obtaining eligibility. What I am concerned most is the long months of waiting for eligibility and etc. Since being a nurse Is what I learned to be, I am very eager to work in the health care team.But now that you told me that being an RN does not assures instant job, do they also accept volunteers? to gain experiences or rather join the military.?
Thank you for your reply
