    motels - mini hotels
  2. by   suzanne4
    Motels are not mini-hotels. The term means that they have parking directly in front of the rooms, versus parking in a big hotel parking lot. The M stands for motoring. They were originally near freeways or expressways so that travelers could stop and sleep for the night and get back in their car in the morning and leave.

    Motels have a different connotation back in the Philippines.

    Yes, that is why we are being corrected by a native American, of the right meaning or denotation of the word so that we use it right in the academic setting.

    assuming the NCLEX can be taken here.

    any idea (guess) how long it would take to book a slot and sit the test? (weeks? months?)

    thanks

    Native american doesnt mean "a true born american" , john wen u say native americans ur pertaining to the "indians".....u better remember that.

    Native American means an American Indian................

    American by birth is what I am.

    Naturalized American means someone that was born in another country but is now a US citizen. This would be a Filipino that now holds US citizenship.

    And there are differences with each one of them.

    Thank you very much for the correction 2b_usrn!

    Yes, I was referring to that, hehe...I must have had too much of the "native language" word usage in the Visascreen handbook that I adopted its usage/meaning in the wrong way...Sorry for the confusion caused by the term that I used...

    I do hope security will be tight when the NCLEX center opens in Manila. I'm paranoid that a number of lazy Filipinos will find a way to cheat the NCLEX. I know that because I know of sooooo many student nurses who are addicted to cheating.
