    Yes, there are so many Filipino nurses in Texas. So far I love Texas. I consider it as my home away from home. Have been here since 1992. However, Im not familiar with the hospital you are going.
    Anyway, goodluck.

    Im one of the many filipino nurses here in San antonio, Sn antonio is nice affordable,as for the hospital, Baptist has several hospitals here, there some that are good and there are some with horror stories in them, but they are only rumors from fellow pinoys here, Ive never worked there and never worked in a private hospital , always in a teaching hospital is where i want to work, but wherever you are is what you make it.

    good for you. nope, im still here in the Philippines. US Retrogression was timely during my application. Are you a US citizen already? Some of my friends got in at Baptist and it seemed okay, for Filipino standards. Nursing anywhere else is Im sure much better than here... hehe
