To all Pinoy RNs out there: There are a lot of inaccurate informations out here in the Philippines, whether its on the 'net or worse, from hearsays. Please do not depend on just these hearsays, and rumors. We need to check out all the information being given out. If you are already on the 'net, there is no reason that you should get inaccurate informations. We just have to go to reliable websites and forums like this.

Here are some links to reliable websites that I think all nurses should know.

For State BON (and their respective requirements) and everything about NCLEX:

www.ncsbn.org

For CES, CVS, CGFNS certifications and esp. VisaScreen Certification (everybody needs this): Go thru the whole website. Everything is in there.

www.cgfns.org

Immigration/legal websites:

www.shusterman.com

www.murthy.com

For Official news realeases from USCIS pertinent to Schedule A nurses:

www.uscis.gov

Instructions for registration with Pearson-Vue:

www.pearsonvue.com and

www.ncsbn.org

Hospital websites for diff. States:

http://www.theagapecenter.com/Hospitals/

Texas service center processing dates for I-140 schedula A nurses:

https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=Texas

Nebraska service center processing dates for I-140 schedula A nurses:

https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=Nebraska

Vermont service center processing dates for I-140 schedula A nurses:

https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=Vermont

Local Blogsite for RNs:

http://filipinonurse.blogspot.com/

Of course, the Int'l and Filipino forums of www.allnurses.com

With all these reliable websites, there are no reasons that nurses would get lacking or inaccurate informations. We just have to do our own research and do what is best for ourselves and most importantly let's network and help each other out. If we know any info. (bad or good) pls. share it. It has to be as much as possible accurate or if you received info. but not sure if it's accurate or not, pls. share it and ask about it in forums like this so that those who have gone thru the process or are more experienced or an authority could give their inputs and suggestions.

Lastly, to those posting on public forums (such as www.allnurses.com) be responsible, respectful and sensitive in your posts. These posts are monitored by not just RNs but everyone related in this industry (including prospective employers). We are all educated professionals here. Many may have differing opinions but we must always maintain respect with each other. We are the Captains of our own Ship and no one is forcing anyone to do something we don't want to.

THANKS FOR THE LINKS, i think this will really help all the filipino nurses.

I don't recommend signing up w/ an agency just to help you to register for the qualifying exams in the US. You can do that on your own. Even if you find the fees a bit high I would still not recommend it. Better exhaust all possible means such as getting a personal loan w/ your parents or close relatives.

In our culture it is not uncommon that newly grads ask for a loan to their parents and most Fil. parents are more than willing to lend a helping hand to their children. If your a 2nd courser or have a job then better save up for the fees. Don't ever sign w/ an agency and be tied-up w/ them just to help you process in registering for the US RN qualifying exams because you can do it on your own. Being tied-up w/ someone or w/ an agency w/o even having passed any exams yet is a no-no for me. What if you don't pass the exams (God forbid) the 1st time around ( less than half of foreign RNs pass the NCLEX ) and not all pass the IELTS or TOEFL the 1st time around either. What if you suddenly find out that the agency you sign up w/ has a bad reputation. When you sign up w/ an agency you must abide w/ their policies and pay any cancellation fees. Hope you get what I'm strying to say. It's much smarter to pass the nclex, and english exams 1st before signing up w/ anyone.

My point is: finding an employer, whether direct or agency, but preferably direct should be the last thing you should do. Pass all the exams 1st, then look for employers later. You'll have more options.
