    Interesting article about "diploma mills"

    "When Filipino nurses protested against a popular U.S. television series -- one of the show's characters had supposedly made a discriminatory remark about nurses graduating from the Philippines" ...got this out of the article. I didnt know filipino nurses got nailed too. Which show was that? :smokin:

    Vermont Application

    you're right suzanne...there's more to the nclex than med surg...i jst based that opinion on my own experience when i sat for it...i stopped at item 75...jst had 2 questions on Maternal and child, 1 question on psychia..the rest med surg...the items could have been spread out i think had I reached the 265 item max. The med surg instructor I was talking about went to the US in the early 90's and worked there for sometime as an RN, I suspect to save, so he can come home and complete his medical degree...placed 12th on the medical board yet never was a placer in the '92 NLE(any MERGE Baby reading this will recognize this fella immidiately heheh) he says he's only worked a few years here in the phils as an MD..as to why he's in a review center now i can only speculate that he earns more..anyhow, i'm glad i sat through his discussions...realy helped boost my confidence :yeah:

    PRC license

    congratulations on passing the exam! :) From my experience, registration is done after the oath taking. And a schedule is followed based on registrants' last names. Hope this helps
  15. hotpotato, look for the posts by soundbites...he's got actual experience on the whole process of registration in BC. You'l find his posts pretty helpful if you're planning to get registered in beautiful british columbia.
  16. Hi hotpotato emailed CRNBC about the experience part of the application and they said it's not a requirement. Although, the registration process does require one to complete 250 hours of supervised duty. And without any experience it would be hard but certainly not impossible to find a canadian hosptal to work on those hours.
