Studied BSN in the Philippines for 2 yrs, wants to continue in the USRegister Today!
- by ishylovesyou Mar 31, '12Im currently residing in WA, USA and would like to pursue BSN. Last 2007 to 2009 I was in the Philippines studying BSN in De Lasalle University. I was able to attend 4. semesters and 1 summer term in BSN. I completed 122 credits and no failed subjects. If I want to finish the degree, will the nursing schools in the US credit the subjects I finished? Or will I start feom scratch. I want to finish it so I can take NCLEX. Do you know any schools that accepts and credits subjects taken from te Philippines? What should I do? Pls respond. Need help, i really dont know what to do.

Getting into nursing school here is very competitive so you might not get in right away. In the mean time, check which ones are credited and which prereqs do you need to take again.
- Jul 17, '12 by pandaxajHave you tried asking Seattle Central(SCCC)? From what I remember, you should have your original copy of your transcript and evaluate it on FIS (Foundation for international Services). It takes a week to a month. Then SCCC will decide what you should take and whatnots. But before you take the program, you should have a license for nursing assistant, CNA. There are tons of schools or something that offers nursing assistant training/program. I think you have to take it for two months? Depends on the school.
In UW, you'll have to start all over again. I don't know about repeating the prerequisites though you can take it in outside UW.
