Im also planning to take up nursing by next year.....are there any schools in Cebu that offers a special program for second coursers who are not allied medical course grduates?. KG21121 , have you heared of any?
hello callcen2RN -
we're on the same page here!!! Where do you work? and how old are you?
I know some schools in Cebu that offer good nursing ed for second coursers, for one there's Cebu Doctors University(formerly a College), I think they do accept second coursers(but let me check).
If I were you though I would just go to some city where there's not much distractions going on...and one would be dumaguete, it's not far from Cebu, you can go home once every month if you like, even every week if you can manage the time well(not to mention money matters on your travel), my point is if your gonna go to school as a second courser it better be good and planned well., and that the lesser the distraction the more you learn, Cebu is a metropolitan City, every move you make equates to money spent...but if you're in dgte, its better,food is cheaper,rent is cheaper and its not too polluted, better time mangement as theres not much traffic jams there compared to Cebu...
To know the best and worst nursing schools in the Philippines go to
CDU by the way is included here, a couple of nothches after SU, so i guess its gonna be up to you to choose which one you'll take...
there are some useful URLs on this site
too. I always get updates on this URL as the author usually has some updates.

Hello everyone.. I'm also a second courser, I entered the curriculum last June 2005, being an allied medical course graduate, a pharmacist, I was able to qualify as an AHSE II student... I'm currently a BSN III student right now... Hoping to graduate in 2008... that's 3 years... hopefully...
Good for you...What school are you in right now and how old?

i totally agree with you... i took up nursing for three years and one extra semester since my first degree is more on the arts...it saved me a great deal of trouble when i applied for the NLE... as you may know, second courses need to be interviewed by the BON before applying for the local board...In the interview, the only question the BON member asked me was how many years i took up nursing...i heard it wasnt that easy with other students...I think the BON are rather skeptical about second courses who finished the degree in less than two years...because of obvious reasons...
i can only think of two things to advice you... read up and "abuse" your clinical instructors during your community and hospital duties...just learn as much as you can... and im pretty sure you'd do well in the local and foreign exams... goodluck
Thanks miQ for the advice...i dont want to feel how those students who went on a nursing "crash course"(so to speak) felt, its really hard for someone to accept the fact that they wont pass the board exams because of they took these tempting offers from some schools, its just s waste of time, money and effort!
what do you mean by "ABUSE", the read up thing i can manage, the abuse thing...hahaha, im thinking dirty here...
