To All Incoming Filipino Nurses!

***Just got this nice message from a fellow nurse. I don't actually know him, but his message is the reality of Filipino nurses' condition. We all know that that when we say Nurse, most people who are not in this profession would definitely think that we are rich or soon be to rich. But they are all wrong, it would take a long process and a lot of time and effort before we could reach that or worse, we would not be able to become successful. As they say, nursing is not just a profession, but also a vocation because we need to be devoted to our profession. We need to learn on how to love our patients... and not self interest. This is the truth, most nurses have taken this profession because most of us think that when we graduate and pass all the needed exams we would be able to go abroad (esp. US) and earn big. But unfortunately, most nurses are suffering because they cannot even find a job in their own country, including me. I must admit that before I enrolled for nursing, I was so confused with what to take as my course. And there goes my mom and sister who was nagging me to take nursing because it is in demand abroad. According to them, I would get work easily. Okay, since I didn't know which course to take, I took this course without even knowing if I was emotionally and physically ready. I got tempted with the possible salary that I might get. But now, I am just a volunteer nurse in a government hospital. There was a time that I wanted to give up. There was a time that I wanted to study again. Part of me wanted to stay with my profession and another part of me wanted to give up and take another path. So for those who are still planning to take nursing, think twice. Nursing if for those who really love this profession and not because of what and how much we are going to have... peace out...

Kung may time pa para mg iba kayo ng course...mag iba na kau...
Kung hindi nio tlga gusto ang nursing...wag na kau mgsayang ng pera at panahon
Kung ikaw na paloko loko lang sa pag-aaral ng nursing... maawa ka nman sa pghihirap ng ngpapaaral sau
Pero kung tulad ko ikaw na nsa puso ang "caring profession"... papanindigan mo ito at handa kang danasin ang lahat ng paghihirap sa propesyong ito...
Nung ngaaral pa ko, hindi sumagi sa isip ko na magiging ganito pala kahirap ang takbo ng buhay pagka graduate...sa totoo lang hindi ganun kasaya nung grumaduate ako, dahil iniisip ko ang Board exam
>kylngan makumpleto ang cases at mapapirmahan
>kylangan maifile mo sa prc
(na isinumpa ko tlga sa sarili ko na hindi ko na ddanasin ang hirap ng pagaaply for bord exam)
>kylangan mong mgreview at pghandaan ang bord exam
Tpos ano?...pg dating ng bord exam... ni wla pa sa 1/4 ng pngaralan nio nung review ang lalabas sa bord. Na dapat tlga, mganda ang nging foundation mo nung ngaaral ka pa...
Tpos ano?...na paghihintayin kau ng halos 2 buwan para malaman kung pasa o bagsak ka! PRAISE GOD kung pasado, pero kung bagsak...eh maiicipan mu tlgang mgsuicide nalng dahil sa kahihiyan sa mga taong nakapalibot sau...
Tpos ano?...pagnakapasa ka...aun!
>pipila ka n nman ng pgkahaba haba sa prc para makuha ung grade mo
>mgpapafile ka nman para makapg oath taking ka
>mghhntay ka ng 1 buwan para irelease ung certification of passing and rating mo
>mghihintay ka ng 3 buwan para irelease ang license mo! (ang pinagsunugan mo ng kilay sa pgaaral) pero ung iba (nakasurvive lang sa pangongopya)haha!
Tpos ano? akala nio makakahanap agad kau ng work sa hospital??? manigas ka! tumirik man mata mo, hnd pa tpos ang pghihirap...
Kung mag-aaply ka na...
>DAPAT MAY BACKER KA!!! (no. 1 rule yan!)
>kylangan mo ng experience not less than 2 months
>advantage ang 80 above ang bord rating (hahaha! praise God pasok ako sa banga!)
>advantage ang nkpag IVT training ka na (na sandamakmak na namang pghihirap ang iyong dadanasin)
>na minsan dapat 21 years old ka na kasi ung iba d tumatnggap kapg 20 yrs old lng
>at eto, get used to this! putek, hindi mo na kylngan pumnta ng HR department para mgsubmit ng resume, dahil sa guard p lng, malalaman mo na na FREEZE HIRING!!!
OH!!!!!!!!! anu??? kaya pa??? huh mga nursing students na soon to be magiging RN este dpat URN (UNEMPLOYED REGISTERED NURSE!!!)
Malakas kutob ko, sa 1,800 plus na pumasa sa skul kong bonggang bongga kamahal ang tuition,
65% ang ngtatrabaho sa call center (na sa 100 plus na 'CUM LAUDE' eh bka lahat un call center agents na)swerte kung makapasok ka dahil kadalasan 'black listed' ang nursing graduate sa call center! (e kung sila kaya i black listed sa hospital!) haha
20% ang nagtatrabaho bilang Med Rep, Med transcriptionist, clerk, pati sales boy and sales lady, maging crew sa fastfood chains
10% nlang cguro ang tlgang ngeefort ng bonggang bongga para lang mkapagwork sa hospital (to think 9% dun ay laht volunteer pa lang, meaning, wala pang sweldo!!!)
5% aun apply to the max ng NCLEX, CGFNS, IELTS (na sandamukal uling pghihirap)
Oh anu kapatid? kaya pa??? akala nio ba madali ang pinasok ntin pare pareho???huh! Hindi ko kau dinidiscourage, pero ito ay isa lamang katotohanan sa likod ng PINAKAMABANGONG PROPESYON SA BUONG MUNDO!!! (TAE NG YAN!)
Kaya kayo dyan, super goodluck tlga to the highest level! kung sino man makakabasa nito at mgiging ganito ang dadanasin, hahaha! i tell you, hnd nio ko makakalimutan! hahahaha!!!

I Heart Glads Sandals

I so love to wear gladiator sandals but I cannot find glads sandals that look like these. I don't like the flat ones since I'm petite, I want the ones with heels so I can increase my height just a little bit.

But there's an exception, if the sandals look like these then it's okay to be flat. I like colorful flat glads. They're so cute to look at.

Anyway, can anybody help me where can I buy gladiator sandals with heels?

Our New Civic

My family has been dreaming of buying a brand new car especially when we didn't have a car yet. We never expected that we would be able to afford to buy one someday and now here it is our new CIVIC. For me, this is truly a blessing from God. We didn't pray for it... it just came. I thank God for all of the blessings that we have eventhough He alwyas gives us the trials that we thought we wouldn't be able to overcome.

Sometimes, Kids Look Funny When They Cry

I just saw these pictures of my BF's nieces, and I couldn't stop to laugh while looking at them. They're so funny and cute on their picture. I love toddlers especially when they do funny things like this.

Tryin' to fit everything right...

Tryin' not to be wrong again...
But I always remember:

That bein' wrong sometimes...

Makes me a better person...
