    there is a retrogression right now that's why i haven't got my visa yet, hopefully everything will be ok by next month. I already passed the New Mexico state board of nursing last june of 2006. I have an agent/agency there (O'GradyPeyton) who's taking care of all my papers. By the way, how long have u been in FL?

    I've been in Florida for the last 15 years. I was raised in North Carolina, but my dad was in the military and we lived several places.

    My hospital occasionally recruits from the Philippines. There are a group that came 30 years ago that are still employed with us. I worked on a new wing that we had a hard time staffing, so they hired eight Filippino nurses. I enjoyed working with them very much.
