    HI! - too good for the younger set of 2nd coursers--i'm 34 and feeling old. Can you help me what school in Phils accept 2nd coursers over 30? I inquired at EAC- they don't. Please help- I want to find somewhere in Manila but not too far away as Caloocan or Valenzuela. Thanks.

    it's a state of mind.

    I've met Nursing students in their 50's. but young at heart.

    EAC has an age limit?

    try PCHS on Recto Avenue, near Quezon Boulevard. it's on the FEU side, near the rear gate of FEU.

    another school is Perpetual, behind UST.


    good luck!

    Good news to all!!! NCLEX exam can now be taken here in the Philippines. Tipid..
    Sorry, but that is incorrect. Whenever and if they decide to make the decision to open there, it takes months. It will not be an overnight thing. So, there are no centers that have opened today there.

    Remember how many months in advance that you heard and knew about the center opening in HonG Kong last year? And about the new centers that just opened today in India, etc. Japan has been listed already but no dates for even scheduling have been listed for them as of yet............The newest centers just opened today, on the 1st of April, and the Philippines was not included on that list. Nor is it on the list for opening this summer.
    -----------------
    And I just checked the website for Pearosn-Vue, there are no centers scheduled to open in Philippines posted there. This is just another rumor floating around Manila.

    Please check sources first before posting.

    for nightingale apolonia, you can also check on nursing schools in manila that have hospitals of its own or have a number of affiliate hospitals where the students can have their clinical trainings/duties as part of the nursing curriculum. it is very important to have those actual trainings/duties. not all nursing schools in manila can provide their students adequate exposure to clinical trainings required by the education department and the board of nursing. you can check the internet for the phone numbers of metropolitan hospital college of nursing near the area of bambang, or chinese general hospital college of nursing in laloma area, or de ocampo hospital college of nursing near nagtahan bridge/fly-over, or, as also mentioned, perpetual help college near ust (dapitan street). i heard that they accept 2nd coursers but i'm not sure of the age limit. another big school in manila that accepts 2nd coursers is arellano university in legarda-sampaloc area. another one is philippine women's university (pwu) in taft avenue corner malvar/nakpil streets. if you also consider looking in other cities in metro manila, post the name of the city and i will try to name the schools there that i can remember.

    Thanks so much for helping me out...sa alabang kaya meron? Actually, our province is san pablo, laguna- it's just so hard to find one coz they don't have websites that i can visit unlike colleges/univ. in Manila. My previous education is allied health too. with 10 units Human Anatomy and Gen. Physiology , etc...-- do you have any idea how long will i still have to go through BSN?Your reply will be greatly appreciated.

    I've taken some nursing prerequisite units here in the US- and still waiting to get in their Nursing Limited enrollment program - but since my parents are already old and they may need my care - i wanted to go back home and take care of them at the same time pursue my Nur studies there - ( i think Nursing is also caring for our loved ones esp. parents...)- i cant wait to start studying and be in the program since i feel getting old too- it's ok for chronologically younger ones...lol...i have my permanent resident already but im still researching about immigration if i can go back there in the Phils. and stay for a longer time for study. Do anyone have an idea if I should get a Reentry permit?

    the university of perpetual help las pinas campus is in alabang-zapote road. it has a website that you can search. i don't know its admission policy on 2nd coursers and if it has an accelerated program for those who have an allied health 1st course. schools usually ask for a copy of the transcripts of the 1st course and they will evaluate which subjects can be credited. be prepared also (if they ask) with a copy of the course description from your previous college/s to facilitate the evaluation. anatomy subjects in a nursing program are often taught differently from non-nursing programs. sometimes, non-nursing programs have shorter hours (and no laboratory hours) for anatomy and physio subjects. so, be prepared to be told to take this subject again. anyway, it is a very important subject that can help you a lot to understand nursing subjects such as medical-surgical nursing, maternal and child health, clinical practice, etc...

    What now Philippines ... all (a great majority) our student nurses are aspiring to work abroad ... what would our country be left with?

    I think there's nothing to worry about...there's always a time for everyone ...not everyone can leave at the same time... :spin:
