Dual Citizen With Second Thoughts

Hello, I'm a Dual Citizen coming in from California as a new high school graduate to do my studies in nursing here in the Philippines. A little backstory, both of my parents have graduated from the same university here in the Philippines and are both working in the US (Father is LVN and Mother is RN). They both enticed me with low tuition rates and cultural adaption. With a mix of excitement and a family-related financial hurdle (I didn't want my family to pay a lot of money because of this financial stump we found ourselves in), I agreed to go. I didn't take the SAT nor did I really have a backup plan (which is totally my fault and I'm gonna own up to that) and as I sit here, already applied and paid most of my fees for this school (maybe $2-3k), I'm only now reading about the hurdles I must jump through to work in the US after my 4 years working into my BSN even though I'm an American citizen. As stated already, I have already paid for the semester and most of my things are set for the fall-winter semester here so I'm at least doing one sem in the Philippines. So my question is this, should I just come back to California and do school there? Will it be hard to apply for school since I didn't do the SAT? Should I just finish my schooling here and go through the hurdles of foreign education to work in the US? Any help and criticism is welcome, thanks!

You don’t need to worry about the SAT if you attend a community college, at least to start out. Were I to advise you, I would chalk up the costs to an expensive lesson that an American nursing education will make it that much easier on you. Your parents can be just as proud of you as if you had attended their alma mater.
