We are quite aware that these programs are being offered in your country, however, you cannot get a visa to work anywhere with that license. Licenses require a visa to be able to be used in other countries. We do not have a shortage of LPNs/LVNs in the US, no matter what you may be hearing with the advertisements from some of these programs.
And they may tell you that there are temporary visas available for you and even mention the H2-B visa. This is not a valid visa for a nurse for the US in any capacity, it is used for unskilled workers coming over for a short time only. For some of these unscrupulous agencies trying to bring you over on one of these, means that they are bringing you over by providing fraudulent information to immigration and makes you subject to being deported for a period of not less than ten years.
The only one that is going to make money from these programs are the school owners.
This license will only be accepted in the US and permit one to work providing that they hold a green card or are a US citizen. If you are planning to go this route to get a visa for the US, please understand that you will be holding a training that will not get you a job. Your own country does not recognize it for licensure either.
The only degree for nursing that is valid to have a chance of a green card is the BSN. That alone.
Please take the time to do your research before signing with any of these so-called programs as they will be taking your hard-earned money only, and not providing you with anything else. Unfortunately, we see those from your country as being the ones that do the best job of taking advantage of you.

What i mean is, konti lang pinag kaiba ng LPN sa RN. with proper training and certification ng LPN on IV push pwede na mag administer.
Malaki nga pinagkaiba ng sweldo ng RN sa LPN. Mas mataas di hamak ng konti ang sweldo ng RN
Kase Brod, salungat kase ang mga sinasabi dun sa allnurses.com sa totoong nangyayari.
tama ka, with supervision pa din ng RN ang LPN... Pero hindi na profession ang prioridad ngayon, sweldo na at ang makapunta sa US or Canada... Hindi man natin aminin pero yun talaga tinutumbok diba?
Ganito lang yan. I'f i'm an employer, why would i hire 15 RN's if i can take 5 RN's to supervised the 10 LPN's..... Balanced ang Pasweldo
Diyan threatened ang PNA and allnurses.com dahil nakukuha na ng LPN ang trabaho na sa tingin nila dapat sa kanila lang...
Wala talagang makukuhang trabaho ang LPN dito sa pilipinas dahil ultimong kapwa pilipino dine-discriminate ang propesyon na yan
Buti na lang may NCLEX-PN
para lalong ma enlighten... contact KRC (Kennedy Review Center) 8825557

i am a practical nurse here in the us and as far as my experience being one, konti lang ang pinagkaiba ng rn. we actually do the same job and we have the same responsibilities. meron din kaming license that we have to protect and saying it is not considered a professional education is simply wrong. we took a board exam too for crying out loud. it's not just a certification or a diploma. we may not be regarded as with a level as high ng rn pero ang lamang lang nila is they can hang antibiotics, do a thorough assessment and iba pa na nasa scope of practice nila. LVN's or LPN's actually call and talk to MD's, pass meds, take orders from MD's and carries them out, hang IV's for hydration, do blood work, check blood sugars and administer insulins, get specimen samples and follow-up labs, assess patients, give vaccines/ shots, do wound care, insert foleys and nasogastric tubes and also chart and do paperworks. i can actually insert a gt feeding na na-dislodged pero of course with doctor's order using a gtube or foley catheter (as an example). sa nursing homes kasi, MD's visit once a month lang and everything is actually ran by the LVN's and other supervisors. mas kilala namin ang pasyente kesa kilala sila ng doctor. sometimes kami pa ang tinatanong and nagsa-suggest sa MD kung ano ang tama para sa pasyente.
we may not be earning as much as they do but we earn a decent living. the RN program is only two years dito (because of the pre-requisites that you have to take) and the LVN program is one year. bugbog ako sa clinical training and academics since you have to learn nursing skills in one year. and believe me, it is not very easy.
it's true that LVN's are usually hired in nursing homes instead of hospitals. nursing homes are somewhat the territory of LVN's and hospitals are for RN's. but as far as my experience takes me, mas skillful ang LVN's compared sa RN's (no offense meant). more on paperworks sila at yan din ang sabi ng mga kilala ko na RN's. supervisor ko nga RN na for years di man lang marunong magtrabaho sa floor. i have 30 patients that i have to take care of in one day and hindi biro if 2 or 3 of them suddenly gets sick or crashes. imagine doing cpr dahil full code sila.
if you plan on taking it as a course, i do encourage you. of course di naman forever na LVN ka, syempre you have to aim for something higher ( like being an RN, a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant..pwede ring Physician kung kaya diba). i just want to say that for you to be able to have a better career, you have to start from somewhere.
