    Husband Wants to Become a Nurse Too

    Hi there, I can relate to this situation this is the same as my fiancé now. he’s a restaurant mgr as well and work five days a week and i only work 3 days a week 12hrs shift, we are expecting one August. He has a business degree but he is not liking Nursing hehhe i really wish he is a nurse too. I’m not a nurse yet but I just took my LVN exam last week. Anywyas i am also planning to get into the LVN to RN bridge once I give birth :) Its really hard to know what is best for each one of us!To each is own. I also have coworkers that are both RNs and married.They work at different dept and also same night shift. They seem really happy and they just bought a 900,000 house in the bay area.... It’s worth it if you really want to have a fulfilling job and also making a great money :) Good luck to both of you!

    US Labor Market Tough for Filipino Nurses until 2020

    Kuya fern and Steppybay it's sad:(I'm on my 1st year now this is actually my second degree I've learned my lesson from joinin the bandwagon before of getting a Compurterscience degree too bad it wasn't for me I just applied in a call center biz after I graduated I worked as customer service agent for 5 yrs and moved to Florida to study CNA and got my license there and work in a hospital. Sad because I coudnt find a job at that time due to bad economy recession is still on and this is the longest ever!Now I'm pursuing BSN coz I liked the CNA job and I was working in a pediatric ward. Lucky me now my boss wants to rehire me if ever I plan to come back due to this concurrency issue here in PH.Now I'm not so sure if stil leant to continue my studies here in PH.From all the stories I've have read I just want to quit and forget about nursing or BSN just end up working as CNA.Or wait till I save up money to study in a private school for LPN instead.And Kuya fern u stated thatNo wonder Vermont started to enforce such regulations. thousands of nurse graduates without SSN have been applying for the NCLEX. Now our only hope is finding a state that don't have the concurrency issues. What I've come to observe is states with higher population of Nurse applicants are enforcing strict regulations and loads of requirements such as California, Vermont, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Florida. I'm not sure about NY because there are still applicants who were able to get their ATT.It's a matter of time before all states enforce the requirements just like California.So how about for student whose immigrants or US citizen meaning we already have SSN # jut like me I'm immigrant.Is there a bigger chance to get approve if I already have SSN?And all I need to do is process all my documents for CES and NCLEX?Just wonderin!Thanks

SFO?Steppybay:)Let me look in to this link ...
  10. I agree with CarribRN I worked at the hospital last year as nurse Assitant in UD and some of my RN co workers applied their license in Cali Bon and they didn't have to take local board in the PH since they are USimmigrants they just submitted a letter explaining why they did not take the local board. Yes it is good enough just indicate in your letter that you are an immigrant and ur residing in US now and planning to be US citizen too and you don't have any plans of livig here because your residency is in California:)They will completely understand what u mean I'm pretty sure:)Goodluck!!!!
