  1. BLS training at a caregiver institute

    I hope you dont mind me asking, but, is it required by your employer here in US? As far as I know, part of your orientation is to pass your BCLS and ACLS which is fully accredited by American Heart Association. I was a victim, I took ACLS before comi...
  2. Does nclex expires?

    I renew my license online, others uses money order, now i am not sure about you being in the Philippines. I guess same manner when you paid your NCLEX test. I dunno about working within two years, email you BON I am sure they will answer you.
  3. Nurse given Visa but...

    I am sure that the US embassy is just protecting your interest, I am just wondering what your employer did to make the embassy react that way. I have to admit this is way out of my league, seeking the help of a professional will probably be a better...
  4. Nurse given Visa but...

    Do you have relatives in US, you have your visa and you are good to go, if your employer have some issues with the US embassy, i dont think they will grant you a US visa. they would have addressed the issue when they interviewed you in the Embassy. C...
  5. Engineer who wants to take up Nursing Degree

    Bitoy, would you consider going to the LPN program first? some of my new RNs took up LPN courses first then took the RN program. Some of them are now doing their BSN online, that way they can support themselves. We have one LPN student who finished c...
  6. Engineer who wants to take up Nursing Degree

    I support Bitoy all the way, If you want to be a nurse and go to Philippines to get your BSN degree, go ahead. I think that is a wise move. We have a lot of universities that offer a good nursing program. My friend who is a clinical instructor in Man...
  7. I feel your sentiments ultm, choosing the best nursing school is a task that you have to endure. So many things to consider, tuition fee, location, quality of education, facilities, housing, yadayada. and your choices may be limited since you are a s...
  8. Nursing Curriculum

    I agree and disagree, I got my BSN in one of the reputable university in Philippines and I am quite confident that I have a strong clinical background, but to say that we are superior, than our american counterpart? I would have to disagree to that. ...
  9. Please Help

    If my understanding is correct, achood will be working for the first time as a nurse. Well, all I can say is, relax and enjoy your orientation, I am sure that they will train you before they turn you loose. A lot of US hospitals have training program...
  10. Now Im thinking, 7,000 island high tide , 7,100 island if it is low tide....is it? gosh i maybe wrong!!..lol
  11. I don't think that would be necessary since our BSN program is purely in English. We use the same text book, same nursing theories, nursing principles. We don't even use tagalog in our documentation. Since primary school, our education is based on en...
  12. too old to be a nurse....

    Never, thats discrimination here in America, Employers will not even ask your age or marital status, as long as you have a nursing license and you are qualified for the job. FYI, we have nursing students in their 40's and enjoying nursing school. In ...
  13. any FILIPINO members here?

    You have already taken the first step, you are interested. Six years ago I was just like you, I asked around, I search the web, I buy newspapers (sunday edition), I go to different agencies and check out their offers for nurses. I go to job fairs (Fo...
  14. Welcome back to nursing:welcome: Most of the hospitals will offer solid orientation, we call it preceptorship, which could last 6 to 12 weeks, and of course if we feel that the new hires needs more ..then we extend their orientation. We sometimes c...
  15. Help ...I'm not a team player

    Typical rural nursing (i am sure some would disagree),I work in a community hospital, and most of the people I work with knew each other since first grade. I was the new kid in town once and i know how it feels. they are watchin every move i make, th...
