Hi everybody! Here's my story.I was born and raised in Maryland and moved overseas for college. I moved to the Philippines and got my four year BSN. I never got license to practice as a nurse and it has been 7 years since graduation. What happened was, after graduation, I ended up working for Chase Bank overseas as a trainer. I worked for Chase for about 6 years.I have since moved to Florida and am looking to practice as an RN. I need to in an extremely comprehensive review class that will prepare me for the NCLEX so I can practice in Florida. I know things have changed a lot since I graduated and the equipment that we used might be different. Also, I am lost as to how to get my credits evaluated and where to go.So far, I have only found one program that caters to International nursing graduates who have been out of practice for a long time. I need tons of intensive training to even have a shot at passing the NCLEX. The program I have found is 4 months long and requires me to stay in North Carolina. They have boarding and classes 5 days out of a week. The problem is that it costs $12,000 and do not accept student loans. I'm literally starting with nothing. I don't have that much money at all. The program itself starts in August and I don't know if I'll be able to raise 8 - $9,000 in this time frame.Do you all have any idea about any other programs that are similar, more affordable and within Florida?I really like the nursing program because it has a guarantee that you will pass the NCLEX. I have bumped into nurses in hospitals with in Florida near where I live who highly recommend the program. They really cater towards International graduates who have been out of the game for way too long. I'm afraid that if I just tried to jump into any of the nursing review programs out here that are more affordable, I will be very lost. I need something that's going to break things down for me from years 1 to 4 of my nursing course.To be very honest, I am just so overwhelmed right now and really need your Insight. Another option I was thinking about was to try to get into ultrasound sonography classes so I can do that instead but I don't know which will end up to be more expensive and which is more practical. Like I said, I'm starting from barely anything. I have no credit since I left the US when I was almost 18. This just makes it a lot more difficult for me to try to secure a loan. My bank won't even give me a secured card at this point so I'm not sure where to go. I have heard of Pell Grants and such but I don't think the nursing program accepts them. They only take money from debit accounts and cash.I'm starting to get a little flustered so any help you guys could give me would be much appreciated. I just want to be on the right path and not waste any more time. I've been in Florida for about 3 weeks now and have been reading my NCLEX review materials but I am just so lost.I don't really know that my NCLEX review books will help me much at this point because there is so much that I have already forgotten. Have any of you encountered this situation? Do you have any step by step items that I can follow to make this a lot easier? It's a really difficult transition and I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
