Several factors, US is in retrogression, there is a long wait to get a visa to the USA.
Changes of passing the NCLEX is reduced when you are a foreign grad.
Last, US jobs are becoming hard to find with the economy in bad shape.
My advice, enter nursing if you plan to practice in your home country, do not count on the US to be you career path.

It is not a perfect school but i can assure you that they have quality education and you will get real value for your money. Unlike other schools, our school will not rip you off. They do not charge their students unnecessary fees. This school always have a spot in the top ten NLE every year if not every test date. Good luck to all.

They all offer the similar package of finishing your program in an accelerated format.thanks for the reply guys... i just want to share with you... my boyfriend is in the US ryt now with his family, he is already american citizen... so he told me that if i'll become a nurse, he will help me to find job in U.S.. i agree to both of you guys..tnx for your opinion...
Iím bias toward PWU since I am a product of that university. They treat 2nd coursers as professionals, so you feel a stronger connection to the faculty. You donít feel like a student drone. The PWU nursing program is time tested and is over 60 years old. I had no problem with my 2nd course BSN being accepted by the California board of nursing to sit for the NCLEX.
Itís good your boyfriend is a US citizen. If your relationship progresses towards marriage, he can apply for a fiancťe visa for you and you can marry in the USA between 6 months to 1 year. A spouse visa actually takes 2-3 years if you were to be married in the Philippines. As for nursing jobs, just look at online job posts like yahoo jobs or monster jobs and you will see the availability of open slots in a given area. While I couldnít find an open new graduate position in the San Francisco area I had no problem locating one in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. So available jobs will depend on the area you want to live in.
Welcome to the wonderful world of nursing.
- 0Nov 14, '08 by suzanne4Sorry, but the fiancee visa actually requires that one marry within 90 days of entry into the US. You do not get the 6 months to a year. One also does not get their interview again in the US until the marriage is done and the certificate can be produced.
Also a reason why the green card given thru the fiancee visa is only two years as well and not the normal five years.
