    Hi I'm also a Pinay RN... Got my U.S. license last March 15, 06 via New Mexico BON (compact state) but will be practicing in TX. I have signed up for Baptist Health System in San Antonio.<< hope its a nice place w/ minimal or no discrimination for newbies and different races.
    I'm presently wiating like forever for my visa. Right now, I'm waiting for an interview w/ the U.S embassy in Manila. My expected take off is 1st quarter 07. But now w/ the retrogression, lets just say 10 years later? Kidding.

    I have an RN aunt that practices in Houston, TX. I have another aunt, a teacher, also in houston. Guess we'll be having a fam. reunion anytime soon?

    Welpz, lets just pray. Mabuhay to y'all!

    hello everyone! I am also heading for texas. I am waiting for my embassy interview, but I do not know when because of the retrogression. I do not have my nclex yet, but I am planning to take the exam in hongkong because of the retrogeression. I was supposed to apply for texas BON but they have lot of requirements and more expensive. Right now, I am considering the Vermont BON and just apply for the receprocity afterwards.
    My employer is valley baptist medical center.

    My employer went to cebu and manila last year to hire nurses. I am one of those lucky nurses that they hired. Next year they will be coming back here in the Philippines, you need to be a cgfns, ielts passer. They will hire you even you are not an nclex passer yet. You can take your nclex when you get there. Or you may apply to agencies. Im sure there are plenty of agencies there in Manila. Take care and God Bless!

    Please educate me about your land....is the philippines not a good place to work or live? My hubands cousins wife(philipo)came to america to take her test requirements to pass the boards ,but has not had much success. I know there is a language barrier/writing skills. Any suggestions for her?
