    No I wouldn't recommend nursing

    You're a wonderful person and you love what you're doing. You have lots of heaven points now. Continue and follow your noble calling. Cna's does so much in their job. There's a purpose for every person's chosen field - i admire everyone who finds enjoyment in what they do, be it in nursing or retail. I worked in retail before and loved the people i worked with, learned from shared life stories of associates and some business sense. Now, i had overcome all those created wants as i had handled almost every merchandise transaction in all departments in a big store. ( now learned how to be spendthrift :biggringi and ready to save for the future...lol...). Good Nurses...Blessings will be yours for sure...and for everyone with good hearts and sincerity.:roll

    It is really hard to get in a nursing program here as there's a long line of waiting list. Lucky are the A students eversince. But what can you say about their admission procedures and the ranking limited enrollment program, giving exams like pre-NLN or TEAS that they need to score high in -- percentiles - ( these are the limiting factors ). Do they still need to give these exams? Students can't get into College if they haven't fulfilled previous exams already - why more ? why don't they accept students who have the calling as nurses and wants to serve - as we need more nurses in the future? GPA focused and --Why do they need to give so many Pre-admission exams and got long waiting lists for applicants in community colleges? ( few teachers???)- as these may change the minds of those who wanted to be future nurses...Why make it difficult for them when we need them? Anyway, if they don't pass the NCLEX licensure- they can't be called Licensed Nurses? - this is the exam US Nurses need to be concerned about- and not to limit them to Acceptance.Wish there were more like you --A students and chose Nursing as your degree.

    Yes. i'm sorry - Physicians just need to take US Med Licensure. Foreign-Graduate Dentists- 2-3 yrs Univ. education then licensure.

    Thanks! Actually, our Fil -doctors are very very good. There's no question about their capabilities, skills and knowledge. I salute to them! --- If only the young sets know about history---many of our past professional MD's/DMD's in US were immigrants__they served as DRS during the war. There may be Chinese/Indian looking Asian doctors in the past- but they don't know these are Filipino citizens previously (Phils is a mixed culture and its people who are mostly highly educated may physically look like Hispanic, Indian , Chinese, or native Filipino-) My dad who is a Filipino was once a resident physician in the past ---US hospitals (already a history) Lincoln Hospital, Petershurg General Hospital ( he's deceased already:o ) - might be 76 yrs old if he's still alive.-----Through time, rules/regulations change concerning practice of profession for US immigrants. What's so nice about working in US is that there's respect for every person's job no matter what it is---- and there's always room to grow. I'm enjoying my stay here and love to see people who work hard to get the opportunities they look for if they find a way to reach for it. I have great respect for individuals who try to reach their goals--

    Thread for Filipino Nursing Students

    To Starbee, What review center are you looking for? My hubby who is now an Rn here reviewed CGFNS from Marlon Ray Labagnoy in Baguio City, then Kaplan Manila- it's also okay. There's so many exams for foreign grad nurses ano? To enumerate all those bloody exams... National Local Board Licensure CGFNS Exam TSE IELTS TOEFL NCLEX Review centers help with guide questions, review---but self-study and serious self-study and prayers is the best after review ctr scheds over.

    Nice, Suzanne. Almost everyone who migrated to a new country with new ways and culture-- tried to adjust and adapt where they are. Actually, I have a professional title back home before we migrated( not NUR)---but to have a job experience in US plus a toddler with me, I tried to work jobs even if it's out of my education/degree/profession. Did anybody watched Eddie Murphy's movie about "Coming to America?" (nice movie). In my first few months- I worked on retail, groceries and other jobs i've never done before---but with their training i learned. I just tried and enjoyed all my experiences... Yes, i miss my profession cause i'm very good at it - but then, I always tell myself---that when I go back home--i'll always be one. You know, when you're new in a foreign land - you're a foreigner and your license from your former country is not valid here- Doctors need to take licensure exams/Dentists need to go back 2-3 years Univ. education and invest in studying/getting licensed--more years of their lifetime and more money to spend. So, I don't bother whatever life strategies any person will choose to ---I believe, everyone has a good/valid reason plus for sure, they have their heart into it as they have the willingness to be second coursers and take all the examinations which the first course Nursing graduates did... I respect everyone's right... ...GOODLUCK! GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, COUNSEL AND FORTITUDE, KNOWLEDGE AND PIETY, THE FEAR OF OUR LORD.:balloons:

    I think there's nothing to worry about...there's always a time for everyone ...not everyone can leave at the same time...

    Yes, different schools have different admission/requirements to get accepted in the Nursing program---sometimes it gets so confusing...they require a higher than the others percentile score for Verbal Ability and Composite percentile in the Pre-NLN Admission test. ( this is given only every 6 mos twice a year). Of course, GPA matters and submission of all requirements on time before the deadline for application. Completion of all these and satisfying all the req. plus ranking higher than the other applicants gets you accepted here in Illinois. If you didn't satisfy one of their criterias, you need to attend a mandatory info meeting, and re-apply, then wait for the next fall. It's really a LIMITED ENROLLMENT NURSING PROGRAM!
