Quote from Georgettes
I was just wondering if anyone here knows something about Our Lady of Fatima University in Valenzuela. I'm planning on finishing my general ed classes (Anatomy/Physiology,etc) at a community college here in California and I'm thinking of going back to the Philippines to get my BS in Nursing. I was looking at the requirements for admission to OLFU and it said a foreign fee donation is required? Does anyone have an idea of how much that will be? Also, how is international student life over there? And does anyone know if they credit PE classes that I've taken here? Sorry if there's a lot of questions, I just couldn't seem to get enough information even though I've called OLFU myself!
I graduated from OLFU Valenzuela, batch 2005. I took the phil. boards and applied for nclex rn in manila with no problems in eligibility. To answer your question, if it's a good school for nursing. YES, it is. At least when I was there. Their curriculum matched the califronia standard, obviously as I have received eligibility to take the nclex rn. I got to califronia on 2008, applied for work as RN, jot down all my experiences while in school and outside school on my resume and landed a job.
My suggestion for you is, go to a nursing school, study hard, pass the exams, get good clinical experience, then apply for a job. Good nursing school is essential but eventhough you're in a good nursing school, that in itself won't make you successful.
