I graduated with a BSN in the Philippines in 2009 and passed my Philippine Licensure Exam soon after, I worked as a nurse for months decided it's not for me and went on a career as an Internet Marketing Professional and have been doing that ever since.
Long story short, I am now in the US and want to reconsider my life as a nurse. I want to take my NCLEX exam and move from LA to Texas and be a nurse over there.
With all of that being said, how do I go about refreshing myself with new practices in Nursing, review my NCLEX and pass the exam all while working as an internet marketing manager?
Which states should I apply for that has reciprocity with Texas? I understand California is not all too happy with Filipino nurses who graduated and passed the exam after a certain year? What are my first steps to get my license application and exams going?
What other career options in Nursing should I consider given my internet marketing background?
Thank you and I hope to hear back from you soon!
