I am super happy and proud right now. Yeah, can’t describe my feelings. I received a good news from my family back home that my baby sister D, who graduated from college of nursing, passed the Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE) in the Philippines. Oh my goodness it was a very happy day when I learned that she did it. That good news was a great birthday present to me.
My sister graduated from college in April last year and took a review in a NLE Review Center in Cebu City, Cebu few months after her graduation. I don’t remember the name of the review center exactly but I will update this post as soon as find out from my sister. My husband and I were so confident about letting her join the review classes in preparation for the licensure examination. Review centers help nurse graduates to learn techniques and strategies in answering the test. The Board of Nursing changes the structure of the examination yearly. So they have to study and review hard.
D is now a nurse. We are very proud of her. The Oath Taking is gonna be held in Tacloban City, Leyte next weekend. She and her classmates who also passed the examination will be registering at the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) on that day. Now my husband and I have to figure out how to get her over here in the US. We want her to work here and get a Master’s Degree in Nursing. We live in Texas and we want my sister to work in a hospital close to us.
If you know of hospitals that do sponsorship and hire nurses from overseas, please let us know. Your help is highly appreciated.
