STUDENT OF UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES, MANILA RECEIVES THE DAISY AWARD FOR EXTRAORDINAY NURSING STUDENT FOR 2022

The DAISY awardee is Rydgel Reign Santos, a senior nursing student from the country’s premier university, the University of the Philippines, Manila. She received the DAISY Award during the orientation of freshman students of the college of nursing. She was surprised and was not expecting that she will have an award that day. She said that she is sharing the award with her batchmates and clinical instructors. “To the freshman students, this opportunity is one of the things you can have in the college of nursing, and to Health Carousel and DAISY Foundation, thank you very much for this prestigious award,” Santos said.

The DAISY Committee of Health Carousel Philippines Inc (HCPI) selected the DAISY Awardee for extra nursing students for the year 2022. There were 13 nominees from schools of nursing in the National Capital Region and Luzon and one was selected to receive the award based on the criteria set by the committee.

The DAISY awardee is Rydgel Reign Santos, a senior nursing student from the country’s premier university, the University of the Philippines, Manila. She received the DAISY Award during the orientation of freshman students of the college of nursing. She was surprised and was not expecting that she will have an award that day. She said that she is sharing the award with her batchmates and clinical instructors. “To the freshman students, this opportunity is one of the things you can have in the college of nursing, and to Health Carousel and DAISY Foundation, thank you very much for this prestigious award,” Santos said.

Rydgel said, “the story I  shared was my experience from my Maternal and Child Nursing (MCN) course which was done in September 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our academic setup was forced to shift to an online modality which made handling clients even more difficult. I was challenged as to how I could actually help my pregnant client via telenursing because I knew that I was limited by only having Zoom meetings for interactions. However, I did my best to establish a good rapport with her and prepared extensive teaching materials for my health teaching regarding pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood. About four months later, my pregnant client reached out to me via a social media application to thank me for all the help that I gave her during her pregnancy and childbirth journey. She updated me that she was able to successfully deliver her first baby via spontaneous vaginal delivery without any complications and that her pregnancy and childbirth experience was bearable and easier because of my guidance. Furthermore, she shared her experiences as a new mother which included breastfeeding problems. Even though I had already passed my MCN course by this time, I re-established my working relationship with my now postpartum client and also gave her health education on breastfeeding and motherhood. I feel honored and privileged to be in one of the professions that can have meaningful experiences with people like this and have a definitive impact on their lives. These moments constantly remind me of why I chose Nursing and why I am even more passionate about it today. In the UP College of Nursing, our motto is “Manus, Caput, Cor.” This is something that I strive to completely exercise and commit to heart as a nursing student - to have hands that extend help beyond what is expected, to have a mind that effectively utilizes the Nursing theories and concepts in providing care, and to have a heart that will ceaselessly give service willingly and unconditionally. The work we do as student nurses do not stop on paper. We are much more than that. Our help touches the lives of everyone we care for no matter how small, how far, or how long. The name of my client’s child is Reine, and she was named after me.”

Rydgel was also inducted by the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing as a member of the Alpha Phi chapter. The awarding was attended by the Dean of the College of Nursing, Dean Sheila Bonito, and its Faculty and students, Co-Founder and  Chairman of the Board of Health Carousel Philippines, and also a DAISY Coordinator, Ms. Connie Dela Cruz and Co-Founder of Health Carousel Philippines and DAISY Coordinator, Ms. Nyra Colinares.

A DAISY Award was given to a nursing student who saved the life of a street vendor in Cebu City whose neck was slashed by her partner.

A DAISY award for extraordinary nursing students was given by Health Carousel Philippines in coordination with Health Carousel, LLC and DAISY Foundation to a nursing student who saved the life of a street vendor in Cebu City whose neck was slashed by her partner. The awarding was held during the capping ceremony of nursing students of the University of Cebu in Waterfront Hotel Cebu on February 21, 2023. The awarding was witnessed by 749 nursing students, nursing faculty, parents, and guests who were attending the capping ceremony and representatives from Health Carousel Philippines. Kristianne Joyce Noelle Ona, the one who assisted Angyl, was also honored as aDAISY nominee.

The awarding was witnessed by 749 nursing students, nursing faculty, parents, and guests who were attending the capping ceremony and representatives from Health Carousel Philippines. Kristianne Joyce Noelle Ona, the one who assisted Angyl, was also honored as aDAISY nominee.

Here is the story of the DAISY awardee Angyl Fayth Ababat:

Angyl Faith Ababat, a nursing student of the University of Cebu (UC), and her classmates were in the downtown area to buy school requirements. While she was waiting for her classmates outside the shop, she was just a few steps away from a woman who was selling mangoes. A man suddenly pulled the woman’s head and slashed her neck. The man was believed to be the partner of the 54 yr old woman. When Angel saw that the woman was about to collapse and she noticed that no one was helping, she fearlessly went to the side of the woman, whose neck was bleeding, and she provided first aid that saved the vendor from certain death. Angyl used a discarded shirt to apply pressure on the wound to prevent further bleeding. She was controlling the bleeding until the medical team arrived to bring the woman to the hospital. A bystander said, “she was brave enough to help the woman despite the situation that the assailant may still be around. It showed her compassion as a nurse.” The nursing student at the University of Cebu said “ People were running away from the area, When I saw the woman was about to collapse, I told myself, if no one will help, then who will? That was why I immediately responded”. Even days after the incident occurred, Faith and her friends continue to monitor the woman’s condition. She and her classmates reached out to the victim’s relatives to make sure that someone will be watching over the older woman at the hospital, and learn about her recovery progress.

Angyl in her interviews in the media has this message:

Always choose to be kind and be a blessing to others in your own little way. For aspiring nurses and doctors, I know what we’re pursuing is hard and sometimes we get little to no sleep. But we know that it will be worth it in the end because someday, somebody’s life will be in your hands and it takes a lot of courage and passion to dedicate yourself to the welfare of others.

*The Health Carousel Philippines Inc., in cooperation with Health Carousel, LLC and DAISY Foundation, is promoting the DAISY Award in the Philippines by partnering with schools and hospitals that are willing to honor their nurses and students.

How to Apply for the NCLEX

To help you achieve your goal, the team at PassportUSA has assembled the following information on applying for the National Council Licensure Examination, commonly referred to as the NCLEX.

Ready to begin your new career as a RN in the United States? To help you achieve your goal, the team at PassportUSA has assembled the following information on applying for the National Council Licensure Examination, commonly referred to as the NCLEX.

Passing NCLEX is your key to getting a nursing license in any U.S. state. You can register and take NCLEX through any U.S. board of nursing and then later apply for a license in the state in which you'll be working. So, the best advice is to take NCLEX through a State Board of Nursing that has less stringent requirements.

Before taking the exam, PassportUSA can help you choose a good state to file through; if you've already passed, we can endorse your NCLEX to any other U.S. state. That doesn't mean you have to take the NCLEX again.

Choose the Right State Board of Nursing

1. It's important to remember that the state board with which you choose to take the NCLEX is not necessarily the state you will end up working in. Instead, your work assignment will likely depend on which facility selects you. Regardless of the U.S. license you obtain, you will apply for endorsement of license for the state in which you end up being assigned.

2. When searching for a state in which to apply for the NCLEX, be careful not to select a state based on things such as the popularity of the region or even your dream work destination. Rather, consider the requirements of the state's board of nursing for foreign nurses. If a board requires any of the following, you may consider not applying for NCLEX with that state board because it could delay your application:

     
  • IELTS or TOEFL results
  •  
  • Clinical experience
  •  
  • Social Security Number (SSN) to issue a license (You will have issues later if you apply to a state that will not issue a license if you don't have a SSN)

3. For now, PassportUSA is recommending four state boards: Northern Mariana Island (a U.S. commonwealth), Illinois, Texas, and New Mexico. During your research into the NCLEX application process, you may also find other state boards that have requirements that are easy to complete.

Credential Evaluation Service Registration

If the state board you select requires a Credential Evaluation Service (CES), PassportUSA recommends using CGFNS and not other credentialing agencies; this will make it easier to apply for U.S. VisaScreen.

To submit a CES to a state board of nursing, take the following steps:

  1. Complete the registration process at www.cgfns.org to get a username, password, and CGFNS number.
  2. Once you have your CGFNS account information, place an order with them for a Credentials Evaluation Service Professional Report. When ordering this report, be sure that the recipient of the report is the Board of Nursing for the U.S. state where you will apply for your NCLEX examination.

Register with Pearson VUE

  1. It is recommended by the State Boards of Nursing that you register and pay for the NCLEX exam on Pearson VUE before submitting your state board of nursing application. Failure to do so will delay your issuance of your Authorization to Test (ATT).
  2. Register with Pearson VUE at www.pearsonvue.com/nclex.
  3. The validity of your Pearson VUE registration is at least 365 days.
  4. Wait for your NCLEX ATT from Pearson VUE.
  5. Once you receive your ATT, you will need to schedule your NCLEX examination before it expires. The ATT validity period varies by state board of nursing, so be sure to understand how the regulations of the state board of nursing through which you applied. Failure to take the exam in the allowed time period will result in the expiration of your ATT.
  6. The timeframe to receive your ATT varies by state board. If you do not receive your ATT within three weeks, contact the state board through which you applied.
  7. While waiting for your ATT, you should continue to study for the NCLEX. (PassportUSA can supply you with resources to prepare for the test‚ (register now to learn how). You may also choose to attend NCLEX classes at a review center near your home.
  8. You can schedule an NCLEX exam appointment at an international test center either online or over the phone by contacting Pearson VUE NCLEX Candidate Services.
  9. Follow the instructions from both Pearson VUE and the board of nursing.
  10. For further information on NCLEX, you can reference the NCLEX Candidate Bulletin at https://www.ncsbn.org/1213.htm.

Do your best to pass the test, this is your ticket to beginning the immigration process to the U.S.

Apply to a State Board of Nursing

  1. Be sure to register with Pearson VUE before applying to any state board of nursing.
  2. PassportUSA is recommending applying through one of the following four state boards: Northern Mariana Island (a U.S. commonwealth), Illinois, Texas, and New Mexico.
  3. Submit an application for licensure to one of our four recommended state boards of nursing.
  4. You must meet the all of the eligibility requirements of your selected board of nursing in order to take the NCLEX exam. The PassportUSA team can guide you throughout this process. If you have questions or concerns about any of the requirements, be sure to reach out to our team.
  5. Follow the instructions of the state board; you may email the board, if needed.
  6. Send the application fee and forms to the state board. You may also send your application to PassportUSA for review, and our team can then submit it to the state board.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR IELTS DURING COMMUNITY QUARANTINE

Here are some successful tips on how to keep you on track with your American Dream journey.

When most people nowadays are coping with the major changes that COVID19 has brought into their lives, admittedly or deniably, they are fitting into the new norms just to survive for a day. The come-what-may attitude is starting to creep due to uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 crisis.

 

The need for IELTS or even getting to the United States and fulfill the American Dream becomes obscure. Confined to homes and stuck at workplaces such as hospitals, the passion within is slowly fading.

Despite everything that is happening around, let us not forget that there are some people, in contrast to the majority, who see things differently. We call them the visionaries, and Health Carousel is one of them.

Health Carousel firmly believes and is heavily invested in the continuity of its commitment to nurses like you to successfully live and work permanently in the United States. All processes are functioning actively, including IELTS preparation. Though IELTS test centers are closed in the meantime, they can resume operations once the quarantine is lifted.

The question here is, are you ready to take and pass IELTS when testing centers re-open?

IELTS review centers temporarily suspend their operations, and though some are offering online courses, it is a burden to pay since money is very much hard to earn nowadays. Nonetheless, Health Carousel has anticipated this for quite a long time and came up with the IELTS online review program with Clarity English that started a couple of years back. This has not been appreciated well by other candidates, however, at this time of quarantine, they learn to highly appreciate its use because they can review in the comfort of their own homes. In fact, there is a surge of Dynamic Placement Test Takers and they are now enrolled in their respective programs, such as Road to IELTS or Active Reading.

 

Here are some successful tips on how to keep you on track with your American Dream journey:

  1. Take time to watch CNN, BBC, or any English news. No time to watch? You can listen to podcasts or if you are busy at home, just play it in your background to enhance your listening and speaking skills.
  2. Think in English and spend time at home talking in English with your family members. Remember, they are your dependents and they must acquire fluency in English to enjoy its culture upon arrival in the US.
  3. Read English newspapers or magazines to boost your vocabulary and sharpen your reading comprehension skills.
  4. Have free access to Health Carousel�s IELTS programs. Talk with your advisor about your preferred time so you can take the DPT or Dynamic Placement Test and start reviewing your IELTS course.
  5. Book a speaking coaching with your advisor or you can start speaking in English with your advisor so you get used to the language and develop confidence and competence in making conversations. Remember that IELTS is all about your opinions and you can never wrong in expressing your views.
