The toll of hurdling all the exams to be a US RN is now geting into me and it is making me a bit frustrated coz until now I havent found an employer who is willing to sponsor me.
Back here in the Phils, we normally go to an agency and most of them are staffing agencies. I rather be hired direct by the hospital.
Im getting so impatient and might just accept an offer in Florida should they at once hire me. The employer from Florida will be here in Manila by third week of October and if they like me, no matter how I want to live and work in Texas, Im afraid that I might grab it.
But I really want to live in Texas. Somewhere in Harlingen, Pharr, Edinburg, Mcallen or Mission. Anyone here who can provide me with information about hospitals that sponsor nurses from overseas???
I already passed NCLEX, CGFNS and IELTS exams but at the moment my hopes are all damped. Maybe due to the strain of taking all the exams and yet after passing, I am faced with the uncertainties of what should I do next.
I wish someone could help... before I sign up for Florida.

I don't know any hospitals in those areas, but if you really want Texas, wouldn't it be better to go through an agency if they can get you into Texas?
I wish you the best!

hi there asyana, i'm also from the philippines and i would really love to work and hopefully live in texas too, most specifically in dallas, austin or houston....i passed my local board exam last december and still struggling to review for the cgfns, ielts, and nclex....i would like to ask, where did you took your nclex exam and how did you apply for the nclex?
hey, there's a lot of job opening in texas but not exactly to the places you mentioned that you wanted to, but you can start from those who are hiring.... or maybe try to apply on those places near to what you prefer.
dont be dampen, you should be rejoicing by now....just focus on the thought that you are already an US-RN nurse...
