    Your school must have NLNAC or CCNE accreditation in order for your education to be recognized by the Navy: As far as I know, there are no schools in the Philippines that hold either of those.

    I would check in with a recruiter immediately to find out what you need to do. It's never too early to apply because by the time they're processing your application you may have your degree. But yes, have a recruiter look into your school and see if it's accredited.

    My parents were RN immigrants from the Philippines. A classmate of theirs wanted to be in the US Navy as a nurse so they went to an accredited University and finished a master's degree r/t nursing and then was able to join. That was over 15 years ago.

    Not sure what the regulations are today.
