I always recall my college life as one of the toughest because I needed to study and work at the same time, I finished my BS Nursing degree last March 2006. I took the board licensure examination for Nurses December 2006. Passed it on just one take yay! But that was just the beginning. That time was a massive population for Filipino nursing graduates, there was no easy job opportunities especially in Metro Manila. Most hospitals will accept you if you were wiling to undergo a lengthy in-house training for them for free like you need to pay them to get some experience, I could not accept that because I felt like they were taking advantage of new nurses thirsty for experience, hungry for hospital exposure. Disillusioned with the system I chose to pause and let my life slow down. I gave up in applying for a nurse position. I started to party everyday and just didn’t care.
