    really good to see a nursing forum for filipinos right here...

    i'm a Filipina RN and waiting to get to California hopefully early next year.. it's not easy to count days passing by but I know it'll be worth in once I finally move a step closer to my dream of being an RN -- a nurse instructor, a researcher.. or a chief nurse maybe? haha

    good luck to everyone!

    After I passed the licensure exame last June, I only went to seminars and recently finished my IV training course though I never really got to practice here.. taking care of some family business, guiding some students thru their respective theses and reading once in a while to prepare for the NCLEX.

    I really hope my papers will be done sooner so can finally lay my hands on the profession.

    btw, just like u, nursing is my second course. i got my bachelors degree in Biology prior to that.

    and yeah... congratulations for passing he RN!

    Hello,!!!:wink2: I just graduated this Oct.'05 and passed the local board exam dec.'05! I'm 34 y/o married with 2 kids....Imagine the need for me to make it as an RN before I'm 40. I do agree with you about our countrys need of teachers/educators. I also plan on pursuing a career as a clinical instructor here in the philippines someday.... after i have accomplished all my goals...like own a house, car, properties here....not just for me but, for my kids also. Anyways, I plan to take the IELTS... ASAP and then prepare for NCLEX. I really need good advice regarding where to take the NCLEX and how to go about the application and requirements. Most of my family/relatives are in California so, i hope to be registered there. Where should I take the NCLEX in CA. or in Hong Kong? any suggestions regarding how to migrate to California I would need also... Thank you!
    GOD bless!

    hello all. im a filipino nurse also. just graduated this year. my 2nd course. my first course was from up diliman. (anyone here from diliman?) i wanted to take nursing in UP manila but they refused me, saying they will not accept 2nd coursers. i found that unfair. anyway, i graduated march , took the boards in june and opted to finish all the necessary exams before the year ends. im done with my ielts, cgfns and nclex. will be starting work in a local hospital. no pay for 3 months. is it like that everywhere? over staffed, they say. oh well.
    hi! i finished BS Biology, UP Baguio. what was ur first course? UP Manila people told me they don't allow second courses even if ur a UP graduate.. NUrsing in UPM is reserved for fresh high school grads, maybe coz of limited facilities.. i also tried UST, SLU and other universities, they just dont accept 2nd coursers so i had to go to median universities and its not so bad after all.. it's the degree u want and we'll be working in the US (where there's no discrimination with schools)

    i passed the local board last june and think i have to start preparing for the nclex. having second thoughts where to apply though... california or vemont... anyway, good luck!

    Hello peepz, PINOY AKO. I graduated from Metropolitan Hospital College of Nursing last April 2005 and passed the board last June. This forum is great!!! I'm still here in Manila, I'll be leaving for LA soon.

    It would be nice to hear from you all.

    Happy new year!!!

    so that explains it...before i came here to the us (i'm on a student visa pursuing nursing as a second career, hopefully), i asked up manila if they accept second degree seekers...yup, they don't...i wanted a school in manila so i ended up getting my credentials assessed in gen. emilio aguinaldo. but then again i never got to attend classes with geac, too. it's waaay cheaper to study in manila and what's great about it is you get a bsn after school. studying here in the states, you pay more than twice the resident's rate even with a community college. in my case, i can only afford an associates' degree. i will have to be an rn then think about getting hold of a bsn later. for all of you taking up nursing in the philippines...God bless! you are in the right track!!

    Hi, I am a new member here. I am a working mom and usually work on night shift as a Registered Nurse here in Ohio. Work is hard but you are well compensated here than in the Philippines. Most of the Filipino nurses here bought their car within a few months after arriving here in the US. Just work hard, be humble and don't forget to give back to God the glory.Because we are nothing without Him.

    To all the nurses back home, believe that dreams can come true. :roll

    everybody would say it was a smart step i took... i was in medschool for a sem before i got into nursing. if i continued med, i should be graduating march2006, but then that's not the end yet... so i thought id go for nursing instead..

    so i had my credentials assessed in a local university in our province and i enrolled.. their course is ladderized.. i got into Level II first and so I got my Associate Degree from there (AHSE).. then Level III & IV, got my BSN diploma and took the board, now i have my RN license.

    true, it's cheaper.. but you cant always be assured of the training. i can say our training was just average.. hospitals here are do not have all the modern equipment.. but it was ok.. we had affiliations to some bigger hospitals in manila but that only ran for 4 weeks. it wasnt bad though.. at least..

    but then of course, you get the perks of having your BSN, plus ur license here (just in case) plus an associate degree (in case i wanna teach), add to that of course my previous BS Biology degree.. making it three all in all.. at least if nursing doesnt work (god forbid), i can have fallback options :chuckle
