    Its great to be able to connect & hear from all of you! Dominica, if I undersatnd you right you want to get into a 'volunteer' work? In Washington DC? I have a kumare in DC who is helping out with an orphanage in the next state- Virginia, especialy for children of drug addicts. I understand it is very gratifying work

    marzilan 1104 off course we can be freinds -although you have a long way to go-hang in there, keep your focus on your goals, your studies and most of all remember the 'service' we give and provide is an expression of Gods work!

    Hello... im a filipino nurse. I graduated last May 2004. I took the local board last year (DEC 04), then took the CG last July and took the IELTS last october. right now i still did not receive my cg certificate yet. How long am I going to wait before i'll call the CG headquarters? ( mahal kasi...). I've been waitong for more than 2 months but still i did not receive a copy. All my documents are with my employer already, except of course my certificate. do you have idea if my employer will start to apply for my immigration even my certificate is still pending?

    Hi nurseako. i took my boards too last year december. i thought it
    was a really weird exam and took my cgfns in july 13 this year. i
    already have my certificate ( mailed by cg october 13). they mail
    the certificate once they receive the passing english tests. you can
    check your status online, just type in your cgfns number. have you
    taken the nclex? are you in the US ?

    Hi to all,

    I'm a student nurse graduating mar 2006. I'm planning to take nclex after I passed NLE. Should I take TOEFL, TWE & TSE prior to NCLEX or after I passed it? I read that CA-BON needs it, I think it's one of their requirements? any advice? And also, should I take it in hongkong or Ca since I have a tourist visa?
