August 29, 08 Friday. It has been a long day, but I enjoyed it.
I attended 2 different events of my family. Yesterday morning, since I’m free of schedule from review center, I went to Gabby’s parade for the Twinkle Toes Academy’s Linggo ng Wika celebration. His Lolo Benruh (my Dad) was there too to witness the event. It was the very first school activity that I had attended since both Tina and I were not available last month when they had Nutrition parade; yes they had fruits and vegetables on hats and mobiles that they paraded with. But for August, since the whole country is celebrating the Filipino language a.k.a. Linggo ng Wika, we made sure Gabby will be in full gear in Filipino-inspired costume complete with salakot which I bought personally at Tabora St. in Divisoria. Since Tina had duty at OR yesterday, she missed the event but I had taken pictures for her to see. Below are those photos that captured how Gabby enjoyed his first parade ever…
In the afternoon, I accompanied Ite after her OR-duty to an agency orientation somewhere in Buendia, Makati. This recruitment agency is affiliated with a US-based company with numerous hospital-clients across California, Nevada, Washington and Arizona. Among the many agency that she’d been to, it was only this agency where she entrusted her signature to a MOA terminal to 1 year. We were both satisfied how the agency representative oriented those nurses who attended the event; all our concerns were answered. Proofs of their work and process itself of deployment were discussed and showed in detailed. And with that, we just continue hoping that retrogression with the issuance of US- EB3 visas will be lifted soon. According to their bulletin, the priority dates as of present is March 2006 applicants.
After hearing the agency’s orientation, I understood their views that NO nurses who are aspiring to work and migrate in the US should delay the entire process. I mean, nurses should consult authorities on this matter and should work simultaneously on the completion of their requirements, most importantly NCLEX & IELTS exams and to add-on on their hospital bedside experience.. Nurses should not waste any time to further their USRN-dream. So for those who would like to jumpstart this process, I highly suggest you review at ALLGEN REVIEW CENTER (www.allgen.net), where you will be guided on all of these processes by the most nurse-friendly staff & lecturers in the BEST NURSING REVIEW CENTER FACILITY, with the BEST US-approved & edited review program. This was the very first step my wife TINA did and truly, ALLGEN review center had helped her passed NCLEX.
I had a long FRIDAY but nevertheless, it was fun, informative and productive. I slept early at 9:45 pm; too early from my usual past 1AM bedtime… till my next blog entry. Thanks!
