Sep 20, '11 by Ginger's MomQuote from braglvnWith a green card you can't leave for extended periods of time. I would suggest you find a LPN to RN program, and then transition to BSN.Hello everyone,
I am a 45 year old female currently living here in CA, USA, green card holder, and a practicing LVN in a hospital for two years now. I really want to finish my BSN in the Philippines since it is so expensive to study here. I studied Optometry long time ago in Davao City but was not able to finish it. I was on my 4th year at that time. Now, my husband would like to send me back home to finish my BSN asap. Can anyone help me find a school in Davao City that offers 2nd courser? Also, will my major and minor subjects from my Optometry course be credited since I took them long time ago?
Sep 21, '11 by DonotuseHi there. I am interested in finishing my nursing degree as soon I can. I am an american citizen and was able to finished all my prerequisites for nursing in the community college. I am settled in finishing my degree in the Philippines. But my problem is what is the right school to go to? I would prefer going to a 2 years BSN program. I've heard that many of Filipinos here in the US tend to go back home and only take 2 years. Please I want to start as soon as possible and what are some of the good schools to consider? Thank you.
Sep 21, '11 by Silverdragon102, RN AdminQuote from Ginger's MomIncorrect to a degree. A greencard holder can leave for extended time depending on the circumstances and studying is allowed. You have to make sure you get a re entry visa but I think it just covers 2 years but check US immigration website to be sureWith a green card you can't leave for extended periods of time. I would suggest you find a LPN to RN program, and then transition to BSN.
Oct 5, '11 by NewRNinSDQuote from DonotuseDonotuse, I think it is only a 2 year BSN program if you have a previous bachelor's degree. I did that back in 08, took me about 3 years to complete the program (I have a Bachelors degree in Management)... If you check the second page of this thread somebody had posted a list of different nursing schools in the PI. Good luck!Hi there. I am interested in finishing my nursing degree as soon I can.

Nov 3, '11 by aspiringnurse16Hi everyone. I'm a 2ndyr college Bsn student in Phillippines when I left for US. I'm having tough time deciding whether to go back and to finish my schooling there or just continue it here. I'm gc holder and know about the re entry thing. My problem are big difference in tuition, and when I ask around here they said that I would need to start from the very beginning because the curriculum is different. I invested already money, time and effort from my previous school (CSA-B). So I would like to ask for your thoughts/opinions/experiences. Thank you!!!!

Nov 10, '11 by FLnurse11Quote from may85I was a greencard holder too when I decided to go back and study BSN in the Philippines. My advice is as follows:Hi,
I would like to ask if somebody out there knows what to do or what the requirements are to pursue nursing in the Philippines. I am a green card holder and I originally from the Philippines with a degree of Education and I want to pursue a nursing career and don't want to wait a year or two to be able to get in the nursing school in the State of Florida, because all institution are full for a year. My question's are I am allowed to stay outside the US since I am a green card holder? Will it affect my status? And is the nursing program will be credited to the US when I come back after graduation because I want to work in the US? Please advice I need help. Thanks.
1. Secure a REENTRY PERMIT from the INS (about $300) good for 2 years stay in the Philippines without being questioned by the INS "why you stayed too long in the Philippines".
2. Enrol in DCLC (Dr. Carlos Lanting College). This college offers the best and the cheapest BSN second courser course. I took my BSN from 2009 to 2011 , graduated March 2011, passed my NCLEX Oct. 2011(just for the first time) and currently employed in a hospital in Florida (mind you, NOT a nursing home). I was hired immediately after the interview. The nurse manager was very impressed with my answers to her questions. That was how confident I was with my knowledge learned from that school.
3. Back to the school, DCLC offers the best hospitals for clinical training. (Fabella for OB, Orthopedic Hospital for surg-ortho etc. You can never ask for more.
4. The faculty and staff at DCLC are very helpful to foreign students. They find a way to accomodate your schedule. Classes are from Mondays to Sundays. Just imagine that ! I tell you it is the best school.
5. The accelerated BSN program (1 year program) in FL will cost you around $70 to $80 thousand dollars. I spent a total of $30 thousand and that included airfares 4X.
Goodluck and you made the right decision to study in the Philippines and hoping you study at DCLC.
