Hi everyone! I graduated from a Philippine nursing school in 2006 and passed the Philippine Nursing Licensure Exam the same year. I was not able to pursue my nursing career in the Philippines but now, I would like to pursue it here in the US (State of Florida). I am a US Resident since 2014. Because of my lack of professional hospital experience, I don’t know what course of action to take. I’m not sure if it’s best to start as a CNA first, gain experience and then take the boards, or do an extensive review, take the exam right away then apply for a nursing job after passing the boards. I simply don’t know where to start. Hope to get guidance/ advice from fellow pinoys who went through the same dilemma. Thank you! 😃
