    It is very sad but one must persevere. I just don't understand why the government doesn't address this problem. It has been going on for a while. I graduated 2006 and I had the same experience. I took my exam, passed it and looked for a job. The phrase "financially challenged" is very appropriate. We don't want to be a burden to our parents. Four years of school is no joke to them. Since, we were raised that after university/college graduation we are on our own and contribute to the family so our way out is to find a job which will give us money. At the end of the day, we need money to survive. I know money is not everything, however, these days, it's really frustrating if you can't even support yourself.

    I took an ESL job, tried volunteering for an NGO for a sorta nursing job which is again not a real job for some hospitals and institution requires you to have all these trainings but these HORRID hospitals are trying to rob you money out of your pcoket. How nice of them? I understand the charging part but do they absorb you after, NO, they don't. Some might but after your so called "volunteer" you are on your way to finding a different place or maybe stay in the same place and pay more money to them.

    I've had my share of bad experiences but I am lucky enough to be able to come here in Canada without the nursing experience. 2006 graduate and Dec. 2006 passer here, i did my nursing registration for the Province of British Columbia, approved 2007, found an employer 2007, applied visa and by 2008 received my visa. Came here in 2009, it's a rough road, arduous process but if you persevere and you have the drive, you will make it. On the other hand, drive and motivation don't work at times for the competition is getting stiff and hospitals in the Philippines only think of a way on how they can make money. However, it should not stop us in fulfilling our dreams.

    I feel sad and I feel that way too three years ago. I had to do teaching job(not as a Clinical Instructor but as an ESL teacher) I loved it but it's different when you are in the area. I did that for over two years while waiting for my application in Canada. Luckily, I was able to find an employer though I don't have any nursing experience. I had to do the atrocious registration in the nursing council, find an employer(convince them you are capable and eligible), visa processing and most of all the waiting. I am here now, a Canadian RN and still surviving. It's hard but thru perseverance and hard work it's all worth it. I know you will make it, too!

    Congrats to those who passed!


    You will make it next time! I know it is disappointing. It is my second take actually this February and last October I got 134 out of 142. Pretty close but not as close as yours.You will make it. I am sure you will be able to surpass the passing mark next time. Good luck! Just think of this.I told myself that it's a two part exam for me, Part 1 was October and Part 2 was February.Now it came to an end and am done. I made it this time.

    I made it! I made it! Thank you Lord! Mama this one's for you! I miss you!

    It's been a stressful Monday and Tuesday for me. My friends got their result last Monday and Tuesday. We are 6 in the group. They had their results earlier than I do. I cried yesterday knowing the 4 of them passed and felt sad with the one who didn't make it! I just didn't know what to think. But after the long wait. Patience is really a virtue. Got my result today. I passed the exam and aced it this time.

    I didn't fail the October exam. It's a two part exam for me. One was in October and second part was last February and now I made it! Thank you Lord!
