- 0Feb 2, '11 by rktbrkrHi, My wife is an online student with PPTS Davao and she is about half way through the academic portion of her study and we have been generally satisfied with PPTS thus far, sometimes their turn around is a little slow (based on US expectations anyway!)
We found out from TESDA that PPTS Davao does not have a current license and we confirmed this with a PPTS administrator who said it was due to a change in ownership of the school and TESDA recertification is in process. It has been a couple of months (Jan 2011) and we are awaiting the confirmation of TESDA licensing.
There is also a PPTS school in Cebu which offers online study and they have a current license from TESDA.
Online nursing study is an absolutely perfect way to accomplish the academic portion of nursing school requirements, very flexible way to blend study with other work/family requirements for anyone who is serious & organized.
PPTS Davao actually charges higher tuition for online study but still very reasonable by US standards.
Good luck to all pursuing this noble profession!
- 0Feb 9, '11 by rktbrkrPPTS Davao has updated their website with a link to TESDA, apparently they got their registration renewed.
I suggest that you confirm in writing via email that they have all required documents now. They offer several advantages with online study and ladderized program, you just need to stay focused and apply the effort necessary to pass the challenge exam!
- 0May 22, '11 by yana94Hello! I'd like to verify with other graduates from PPTS Davao. Do you have to wait for 6-8 months after graduation before taking the NCLEX? I was told that PPTS has to process something from TESDA. I am still waiting for the reply from them as I am not aware of this issue. I hope someone can share some information.
- 0May 23, '11 by rktbrkrHi , my wife has been advised that PPTS is awaiting the final step in the TESDA recertification, a letter from the Philippines Nurses Association (PNA) I believe.
NCLEX is administered out of US and the trans-pacific submission of credential to sit for the exam is probably time consuming but that time can be well spent really focusing to obtain passing test results.
This website has the NCLEX info
Good luck. The US health care is filled with Filipinos at every level, there are plenty of opportunities here to make good incomes.
