Hi there, im Chris from the Philippines :shakehands:. Just finished Nursing last March of 2007 & im currently waiting for the board exam results so i can start to move forward w/ my career (wants so bad to be an OR Nurse :marshmallow:). And i really hope to make it. It's gruesome, well, like any other nursing exams i guess.:whistle:..By the way i was surfing just to pass time & i bumped into your site. I started reading and before i knew it i spent almost an hour & a half already. This site is really interesting & helpful. Kudos guys.

Glad to see you here, Chris! I know how nerve wracking it is to wait for those results. Hang in there and feel free to spend as much time as you want chatting with us!

Hey, thanks for the welcome. It's...kinda overwhelming. Well anyway,yeah you said it,the pain of waiting is way off. It's like everyday you wake up wishing your name is somewhere in that list of new RN's. Rumors have it that the results will be out next Sunday. Im really hoping so..Anyway,thank you guys for the welcome. I really do appreciate it.

Hi Chris!

How cool that you put your pic as your avatar!

Sounds like Journey has recruited their new lead singer from the Phillipines. Ever heard of Arnel Pineda?

I'm into music, I had to ask!

And welcome to Nursing Voices! :highfive:

Hey Kim.:handkiss:.Thank you for the welcome. Oh, about the avatar, sorry i had to put my silly face up there.:D..So into music eh?that's nice.:rock:..Arnel Pineda?never really knew who he was till the news got out. But ive heard about his band & i had the chance to watch them once in a club (never really liked their old school rock music though *sorry*). But that was way before the fame started. He's good, he hits the high notes on the Aerosmith song very well. Hope that helped.

Thank you Joy. As of the moment im still waiting for the results to be posted, but surely i'll inform you guys. My plans for employment? Well, i still have my options open. My mom's working in California as a nurse & she asks me to go there with her but since the US is still on retrogression, going to the US will definitely take long until they lift the retrogression & i can't afford to wait. Tentatively i plan to go to Canada or New Zealand as a start. But until i have my license plans will still be plans. *sad*

Fantastic news. Well done.

The first thing you need to do is to get your self some experience as an RN in your own country then as they say the world is your oyster!

Congratulations!

My advice is always to get some good solid med-surg experience to start out with.
