“Keep your dreams in mind so you never forget why you started.” – Nurse Frances Isabela

I thought about giving up, but I am so thankful to my Advisor, Manyles, for constantly keeping in contact with me and encouraging me to keep going.


I joined Health Carousel sometime in late 2018, and it has been a long journey to get to where I am today.

I was first introduced to the program by a friend, and I thought to myself, “Why not?” I was a fresh graduate and I wanted to work on furthering my career as soon as possible. I didn’t realize at the time that I would have a lot of ups and downs.

It wasn’t anything with the program itself, but rather my own personal difficulty with balancing my studies and work. I tried to focus on my review, but so many things were happening at my workplace and personal life and I couldn’t find the time to pick up on my modules and read. I thought about giving up, but I am so thankful to my Advisor, Manyles, for constantly keeping in contact with me and encouraging me to keep going. When I thought I could finally focus, the pandemic came up and I became even busier. But my advisor still did not give up on me. She would listen to me and she was fully understanding of whatever situation I was in at the time. She gave me several calls and advice, and finally, by March of 2021, I was scheduled to take my exam on the 23rd of May.

With the impending date looming over me, I reviewed and reviewed and tried to answer as many questions as I could. It was nerve-wracking, but I finally made it. Two days after my exam, I got a call from Manyles telling me I’ve passed my exam. Honestly, I couldn’t wrap my head around it. I couldn’t believe that I finally did it.

I am forever grateful to the Health Carousel’s ASPIRE program for never giving up on me, even when I was so close to giving up on myself.

A Message To My Fellow Nurses

To all aspiring NCLEX takers and USRNs, my advice to you is to try to find a balance between your work (if you are working) and your studies, but give yourself a break every once in a while, to relax as well so you don’t get burnt out. Always keep your dreams in mind so you never forget why you started in the first place, and let it drive you to get to where you want to be in life.

“Never stop dreaming and believing in yourself.” – Nurse Rowena Dominique

For me, the whole process with the help of both Health Carousel and Innovphil made it so smooth and worry-free. I guarantee that it made me trust them so much where I can truly say they’re one of the best in their field. Very incomparable and genuine.


The Beginning of My NCLEX Journey

Way back in June 2019 when I first saw this Facebook ad of Health Carousel Philippines Incorporated regarding their services offered, I was deeply amazed at their assistance to my fellow nurses who are now working abroad by just reading their testimonies and examples that with awe moved me to be part of it. The moment I scheduled my face-to-face interview with them, gave me the feeling of something to look forward to for a brighter future. Everything was explained to me accordingly, let’s just say, I was thrilled with the idea of pursuing my American Dream that aims me for more. Without hesitation, I gave my very best from the first-ever face-to-face interview, contract signing, evaluative exam, and more module exams.

The whole process was not that easy cause I struggle to balance my bedside working experience as an Emergency Room Staff Nurse and my completion of these module exams from HESI Saunders but that didn’t stop me from thinking that maybe one day everything else will be worth it. For me, the whole process with the help of both Health Carousel and Innovphil made it so smooth and worry-free. I guarantee that it made me trust them so much where I can truly say they’re one of the best in their field. Very incomparable and genuine. Been tested with many circumstances but that didn’t stop me from giving out my very best even if it already concerns my health. Pure Hearts are behind my Health Carousel Family, this success wouldn’t be possible without them for their never-ending support, guidance, and belief in me that I can surpass everything life has to offer. Most special thanks to God our Father in Heaven for guiding me all throughout this journey, with the right reason, with the right purpose, and at the right time. I trust this whole process so dearly cause I believe if it’s really for you sure it will be.

I’ve been in so much pain but I endured it all cause I know I have a strong support system thus God won’t let me face all these trials alone and for that, I’m really grateful and blessed existing and inspiring others with these simple words as a reminder that whatever life throws at you learn how to play and treat it fairly as for the odds will be ever in your favor. I took my NCLEX RN exam last June 02, 2021. Due to my health, and with this pandemic we’re experiencing resulted to various rescheduling of the exam finally the day had finally come which I can say is kinda just in time for me to be well prepared and just give out my very best. During the day of my NCLEX RN exam, I was quite nervous, there was even a moment I couldn’t get the instructions given to me by the test attendant cause much anxiety strikes me at moment later on I finally arrived at my senses and quietly talked to God to guide me all throughout. Whatever happens that day, I just gave my all, I lift everything to God and just cried for some reasons during the examination cause honestly, I was struggling to answer each difficult question. When I hit the end of my number 75 Question, suddenly my computer shut off and proceeded to the research questions. That made me cry so hard cause I don’t know what does it mean with the fact I was struggling to answer each question. I was the third to the last to leave the examination room, I guess it’s normal to feel kinda sad thinking I didn’t give my all but I know I was not alone. If it’s God’s will, I trust his ways no matter what happens. I’m ready to accept whatever he has planned for me. The Agony and feelings of waiting gave me much stress to think about it often but what helped me to overcome it is through prayers and singing worship songs.

 

The day finally came when I received the news of my NCLEX RN exam result from my Advisor. Honestly, I never thought I will pass but everything is possible with God. Couldn’t thank him enough for the overflowing graces and blessings received.

A Message To My Fellow Nurses

Never be afraid to conquer life and its challenges. Be unique enough to face life beautifully and to deal with each circumstance with great mind cause someday when it’s your time it will all be worth it. Never stop dreaming and believing in yourself.

“I am now a US Registered Nurse!” – Nurse Liam John

Today, I wake up every day smiling to the good feeling of knowing that I am now a registered nurse in America, all thanks to HCPI. I’m more thrilled to see how things will unfold as I continue to work on the next steps of my American dream.


The Beginning of My NCLEX Journey

In nursing school, we were asked to make our career map outlining where we would like to ultimately go with the profession in the near future. After heaps of deliberate reflection and daydreaming, I knew that among my goals was to make it to the US to practice the profession and hopefully to move and settle in someday. But, how? As if going to the US was as easy as going on a weekend trip! I was a fresh graduate then, naïve, and had nothing to begin with but my passion to pursue a life that is good and worthwhile and the grit to achieve this. Then I remembered an old friend from college who has been my organization’s go-to partner for projects and events; Health Carousel Philippines through sir Mico Manalac. I never thought that my seemingly grand vision would actually be possible and become a reality the day I joined HCPI in January 2019.

Without a doubt, HCPI has been true to its promise from the very beginning to help young professionals like me who aspire to fulfillment and joy in their careers. In exchange for their tireless and generous efforts, they would only ask one thing; to remain committed and inspired in achieving that American dream for yourself or whatever it may be that they may be of help. Miss Jeimyleen Cas, my dearest advisor, is a testament to this. After I got accepted in my first and dream job, it entailed so much challenge that my focus shifted from unfailingly working on my NCLEX-RN to adjusting and getting acquainted with work. I found myself slowly losing grasp of my goal and self-doubt slowly started to seep in. Thankfully, I was blessed to have miss Jeimy as an advisor who is persistent and dedicated to helping me achieve my American dream. We haven’t personally met, but she is virtually present with me since day 1. From phone calls to emails, she never fails to remind me of the necessary tasks to accomplish, to check on my progress, and more than being an advisor, she’s a kind friend who motivates and believes that I can when I think that couldn’t.

 

NCLEX-RN prep is challenging indeed, but HCPI provided me with the best resources to ease the process through Innovphil as my processor and Mindweb Academy as my reviewer. Despite all the odds, at 84 items, I conquered my NCLEX-RN on March 3, 2021! Today, I wake up every day smiling to the good feeling of knowing that I am now a registered nurse in America, all thanks to HCPI. I’m more thrilled to see how things will unfold as I continue to work on the next steps of my American dream.

A Message To My Fellow Nurses

I might not be the best person to give advice for future aspirants, but if there is one thing I’d say, it would be to take a leap of faith and just start wherever you are or whatever disposition you may be. Be at ease knowing that HCPI has got your back no matter what. With that, I thank my angels from Health Carousel Philippines for always going the extra mile and most especially for making my dreams possible.
