    I was raised in Scarborough, ON where I first took my RPN course in 1975. In 1990 I returned to school at University of Toronto and completed my B.Sc.N. We moved to Oshawa, ON in 1977 and I now am a retired nurse with a volunteer position as a Parish Nurse.

    Earned my Bachelor's Degree from the Philippines. Worked in the USA for 5 years. Want to give it try here in Ontario, but they're too much. After reviewing my credentials...they want me to go back to school for 1 year full time (2 years in other schools, same program, i don't know the difference). Just because I only had 6 years of elementary education...I want to tell them, "Fine I'll take elementary subjects". It's not so fair. So I went back to US where I earn more.
