There are some very unscrupulous agencies out there, this salary is less than someone would get working at McDonald's as a student, let alone having a BSN. And it does not always end at the three months time frame. The agency is getting the full pay for the nurse.
Shame on them.
You would have been better off staying as a family in the Philippines and waiting then getting taken advantage of like this and the family split up.

This is appropriate for discussion at the end of your program when you are getting the info you need regarding licensing and work, both in country and for those who plan to go abroad. In my program, for what it was worth, we got some hints along the way. After all, your teachers are your role models, and who else would be in a position to know and advise? I would think some of them would be experienced and come back home or at the least, have contacts in the US who would keep them informed. Furthermore, the school administration should have a responsibility toward its students to see that they can "swim" once they graduate and this means more than answer some questions correctly on a test. Forewarned is forearmed. I have gotten this impression by a lot of posts from people asking us for advice on this forum. Thank goodness for Suzanne and her vast knowledge of the way things work. Too bad she can't be readily avail to each graduating class overseas!
