    if you dont intend to take the board in the Phil, then you can apply for nclex at California board of Nursing only , as long as you had graduate there in nursing them you will be qualified.

    Hey guys! Just wanted to introduce myself, I'm a filipino nursing student born here in the U.S. but my parents are from CEBU. I attend Texas Women's University in the Texas Medical Center and even though its stressfull and hard at times I know how blessed I was to be accepted into this school (800 applied this semester and only 80 got in including me! :spin: ) And as a plus i get to do my clinicals in the world's BEST hospitals. Also its very easy to find a job especially people from my school. Students have jobs in place even before they graduate and many work while there in school as student nurses. I'm am also the youngest student in my class (i'm 19), the students are usually people pursuing second degrees in nursing because of the job stability and high pay. After school I plan to work at Texas Children's Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for about a year and then move on to become a Nurse Anesthetist. It's alot of work but I know in the end it will all pay off.

    I just want to encourage all of you nurses or nursing students in the philippines who are trying to come here to keep at it because it is definantely worth it. Also during my clinicals, there is ALOT of filipino nurses so if they can do it you can too.

    The pay for nursing here varies around from 50,000-100,000 US dollars a year. That about (3,000,000 - 5,000,000 a yr). Just a little info to keep ya'll motivated. When I start working I am actually gonna pay for one of my neices in the philippines to go to nursing school. I wanna help as much as I can.

    Well I'm here for you who may have any questions. Don't be scared to ask...

    hi!!im also a filipino and im here in the Philippines..just to know some filipino members and to ask tips from them on how they were employed in the US...im currently working as a nurse specialist in 2Dimensional Echocardiography, Treadmill Stress Echo, treadmill stress test and dobutamine stress echo..

    i trained at the Philippine Heart Center for more than 3 months.and im currently working here in San Fernando, La union..
    my monthly is 6,180 (gross) in pesos..

    have to seek my luck there...

    ill be taking my CGFNS exam this september 10...hopefully ill pass the test...wish me luck!!!

    Hi! I'm a nurse not from abroad but here in Olongapo City. We're on the same boat. I also would like to work abroad. Once you passed the state board exam, it will be very easy for you to find a job in the US. There are thousands of agencies that can help achieve our dreams. There are also those who are willing to assist us on reviews & exams free. Sad to say I don't have time to do such things 'coz I'm working during my day offs as a cllinical instructor.

    I earn P451/day as staff nurse & P1600/day as CI. While waiting for an opportunity, try to make use of your time more profitable.

    Hope you pass the exam with flying colors!!!!!!!! Good luck and God bless!!!!!!!!!!!

    hi,
    been an RN here in the US since 2002, I have a colleague in our Residency Class for Critical Care who's been here for almost 2 years now, she worked in Ireland for 3 years prior to coming here...been telling me she regretted her decision in coming here, she said it's more stressful here - citing several things, including, RN-patient ratio, breaktimes, vacations, and the like. anyway, i'm not trying to discourage you, its really up to you, some of us can easily adapt and adjust...only thing that matters is your personal and professional happines. I also have a classmate, been working in London for 5 years and moved in San Francisco a couple years back, and she said the transition period is really hard but she said she has no regretsn in coming here.:innerconf
