    Nevada Nurses

    thank you bagladyrn for that info. I am still doing my research of which to choose bet the two. Since it's my first time to go to the US, maybe it's more convenient if ill choose reno. LV might be too overwhelming for me. But i am still weighing the risks and possible benefits. Thank you!

    Nevada Nurses

    Thank you so much. Probably I'll start with how I'm going to look for an apartment. I'll try to do some research about that hospital. Moreover if I may ask again, how is the process of renting an apartment? Do I need to prove that I have credit card on hand or such. For example, from the airport, ill try to visit the apartments ive reserched beforehand, then pay already on that day so that I can stay in the apartment already? Thank you so much.

    Nevada Nurses

    Good day! Im a registered nurse in Nevada. I passed NCLEX last Nov 2016. I got my bachelors here in the Philippines. Basically, I dont have any clinical experience yet. I worked as a PDN reliever because I was busy on my NCLEX preparation. I wasnt able to move yet in Nevada and still here in the Ph bec I dont have any relatives staying in the US. I am a citizen too. I am planning to finally move to Nevada this July but I dont have any idea how to start. Do you have any suggestions about these dilemmas: 1. Which is better: LV or Reno? 2. What are the hospitals who accept newly grad nurses? 3. What do you think is the best thing to do first cuz it's my first time to go in the US alone. Basically I dont have any place to stay in. Is it feasible if I look first for a hotel, then search for an apartment? I really dont have any idea about how to start when Im in the airport already. No one will pick me up or such. 4. Do you think it's more convenient if I look for an agency or recruiter? 5. Can I find nursing jobs which can offer me relocation or private housing packages. Thanks in advance! Have a nice day fellow colleagues!

    Navy nursing - new nurse Pros and Cons

    Hello, Anchor Rn. Im from the Philippines. Took the nclex last nov 2016and passed it. Still here in the Ph but deciding to move to US this March 2017. I am planning to apply in the Navy Nurse Corps and emailed one of the recruiters concerning navynurse corps. He has given me a file about the basic requirements. I met all the requirements except the schooling part. I graduated from the ph and got my bachelors here. In the pdf file he sent me, it states there that for foreign grad nurses, you might be given an award for BSN or MSN. I am a bit confused about that part. Do I need to take my BSN again or am I allowed to take my MSN already? But I dont have any clinical experience yet. I tried to send him again an email and still currently waiting for his response. Do you have any idea about this? Thank you so much for your time. í ½í¸€

    Hoping to be a Navy nurse

    Hello Louie! I'm from the Philippines, too. I am also an American citizen. We're in the same boat. Just graduated last May 2015. Passed NCLEX last November 2016. I am also interested in applying for the US navy nurse corps or US Air Force Nurse Corps (either of the two). I've looked into the official websites, and it states there that in order to qualify, applicant should be a graduate of the US accredited schools (NLNAC or CCNE are the two agencies i think). I emailed one of the health professions recruiter in the US Airforce Nurse Corps, and he confirmed that I must be a graduate of NLNAC or CCNE accredited US schools. I am quite disappointed and yet still hopeful that I can still do something in order to qualify like RN-BSN program, or take MSN from one their schools while working there. If you have any information, kindly send me a message on my email: angelteukie_01@yahoo.com. thanks and goodluck on your graduation!

    Navy nurse corps for Foreign Grad Nurses

    Hello! Good day! Im from the Philippines. 21 yo. I just graduated last May 2015 in University of Santo Tomas. I just passed my NCLEX last Nov 2016. Im planning to move to Nevada and work as a nurse this March 2017. But im also considering applying to the us navy as a nurse, too. In addition to that, I have second thoughts about my application in the Navy Nurse Corps. There are many questions that run thru my mind. Hope you can assist me with these: 1. Ive read that one of the requirements is that I should have graduated from a school accredited by CCNE or NLNC? As ive mentioned, I graduated from one of the universities here in the Philippines. Does it mean that Im not eligible to enter the navy nurse corps? Or are there any options? Or are there any universities here in the Philippines accredited by the two agencies? 2. I have a military id. I got this because my father is a retired us navy, deputy comptroller. Can I use this on my application or is this an edge for me in entering the navy? 3. For example I am able to enter the navy nurse corps, what does the training seem like? For example, handling of guns, swimming in deep sea waters (lol), and etc? Or is it medically-related only? 4. What if I apply online, pass all my documents, and they find out that im eligible to enter, what is the first step im tasked to do? Because Im still here in the philippines. Do I need to immediately go in the US? Thanks for answering! More power!
