At first, I was anxious because there were so many topics to be reviewed. However, when I was going through the modules, it made me realize that the lessons were really helpful in transitioning to the US. Although it was time-consuming, it was really worth getting through it. The coaches were also helpful because they guided me all throughout and reminded of the areas that I missed to touch.
I found it really important to be able to complete the training modules because it covered topics that were useful in practicing nursing as a whole. It included ways of taking care of oneself despite the busy schedule and most especially in being able to adjust in the US healthcare setting.
It took me 7 weeks to be able to complete all the 9 modules because I had other things to accomplish also. However, I liked the flexibility of accessing the training materials, I was able to sign in to my account anytime I want to and especially when I’m in the mood for review.
I would definitely recommend the training to other candidates, because it contributes to self-awareness, and boosts one’s confidence. I’m sure this will be beneficial for them too.
Now that I’ve finished the training sessions, I feel a lot more secure. When you know what to do or where to seek help, you’ll gain more confidence.Riza, RN
I joined Health Carousel year 2015. I can say that the process of my application has been very smooth. They’ve been very helpful and flexible with their applicant’s needs.
To Health Carousel, just continue to accommodate nurses like me who want to fulfill their American dream.
To all the nurses who aspire to work in the US, it’s not too late to start and make that dreams come true.Leslie, RN
A decade ago, I dreamt to work in the United States of America but it never materialized due to the recession and believed it was not my time. Hence, I worked and honed my skills as a nurse timelessly. I breathe and enjoyed taking care of my patients, friends, and family.
Three years ago, I came across Health Carousel and decided to become part of their family to once again work on my American dream. They made the process easy and less stressful. Moreover, they were patient and accommodating. I appreciated the time and effort of my IDA’s had invested in me especially Ms. Karen, Ms. Roda and Ms. Kimberly.
Without Health Carousel, this dream would not be possible. To all nurses, keep on dreaming and never give up. Dreams do come true. Thank you Health Carousel!!!Chona, RN
I joined Health Carousel in 2017 and the process that I went through is very smooth with all the processing agents that handled my process. They have been very accommodating and all has been very well until this day.
Kudos to the whole team especially Ms. Liza. She has been nothing but helpful. Her patience and diligence are really commendable.
My message to the fighting dreamers out there (RNs, PTs, MTs) just trust the process and reach for your dreams no matter what it takes!Christian, RN
I joined Health Carousel, as I remembered 2015 August. At first, I was hesitant to apply in Health Carousel, but I discovered and heard that Health Carousel is a legit and with the good standing company and are deploying nurses in the USA. My experience in processing my application was outstanding, my IDA Ms. Liza was very accommodating and prompt in processing and updating my papers/application. She is very patient with me to answers all my queries and I really commend her for being professional during the whole process of my application.
To all aspiring nurses, never stop believing and pursuing your dreams. Pray harder and always trust in God’s timing. Good luck and God Bless to all of us. Salute Health Carousel!Angelita, RN
I was abandoned by my first employer and I thought that I would not have a chance of achieving my American dream. But when I signed up with Health Carousel, they made me realize that there is still hope for me and assured me that I still have a chance to successfully accomplish my desires in entering the USA. I am so grateful for the guidance of each one of the teams of PassportUSA and for providing a very understandable step by step instructions.
I wish all other candidates success in all their future endeavors.Soraya, RN
I can still remember the day I was introduced to Health Carousel Philippines Inc., it was mid-June last year and I felt so lucky because I just passed the Nursing Licensure Examination at that time and it seemed like everything was falling into place. After the contract signing and passing the Predictive Test, they immediately gave me a daily schedule for the free online NCLEX review materials. For 3 long months, I studied hard, non-stop. There was even a day when I studied for like 19 hours a day just to strictly follow the schedule calendar. And then, the big day came -June 01, 2018. Before I entered the examination room, I prayed to God and asked Him to guide me and help me focus, clear my mind, and answer each question with all my ability. As the computer shut down, I thought I wasn’t going to pass since I had a lot of SATA questions and I wasn’t really sure of my answers. I went home that day feeling so defeated. Five days have passed until iNurse Processing congratulated me, telling me I did it and I actually passed the NCLEX-RN! It was so overwhelming; I just can’t keep calm! Never have I ever thought that I would actually be a USRN, that I will also be sharing my testimonial like this because I was just a dreamer a year ago.
I would like to thank Health Carousel Philippines Inc. for giving me this kind of opportunity, especially my Program Advisor and all the staffs for assisting me throughout my NCLEX process, preparations and immigration application. A single “thank you” wouldn’t be enough.
To my fellow aspiring nurses, self-belief and hard-work will always earn us success. Good luck on our American journey with Health Carousel Philippines Inc. God Bless us all!Nurse Psalm
I was encouraged by my classmate to join HCPI last October 2017. After taking the predictive exam and completing the HESI modules, I took my NCLEX exam last June 23, 2018.
In preparation for my exam, I need to catch up because it’s not easy to study while working. I practiced Q & A with rationale during my day-offs, usually 50-100 questions a day. I used the Saunders book, La Charity and subscribed to UWorld. I also watched YouTube videos. There were times that I felt discouraged by my review scores but I was motivated by my desires to dream big and achieve greater for my family.
A week before my exam, I did church visits and asked for God’s guidance and wisdom along the way. On the day of my exam, nervousness sets in but I tried not to be affected. When my exam started, nervousness lessened but was replaced with discouragement because I encountered a lot of SATA questions. Before I click the NEXT button in every item, I prayed that I chose the right answer. When my computer stopped at #90, I was worried that I might fail the exam, but still, there’s a single thread of hope left.
It was a wonderful day when I received the good news. All glory to God. He is so good. I am now a certified USRN. Thank you HCPI for helping me achieve this dream. I’m also grateful for the constant reminders from my IPA and IPASS family to always look on the positive side and believe in myself.
HCPI is truly a blessing to me. I hope they can help more aspiring nurses like me to achieve their dream. I wish you all the best and may you continue your values and vision in helping more Filipino nurses reach and live the American dream. Godspeed.Nurse Anna Marie
I joined health carousel way back in 2016, that time there was no aspire program yet. It was difficult for me to balance work, studying for the exams and processing my papers, good thing they come up with this program. I took my IELTS last November 2016 and my NCLEX last June 22, 2018. I really had to push myself to study even though I was already busy at work, I would always make time whenever it’s my day off, I never enrolled myself to any review centers due to time constraints, good thing Health Carousel was there to support me and motivate me. And with the grace of God, I’ve passed and can finally be called a USRN.
Thank you Health Carousel and iNurse!Nurse Mary Winrose
I am with Health Carousel since September of 2013. It has been 5 years since I eventually got my visa and be deployed to the United States. The process was indeed long, tedious and sometimes frustrating. With the help of Health Carousel team, everything did turn out good. To all others who are pursuing their dreams, know that you’re in good hands, and with the help of Health Carousel, you would eventually achieve that goal.Gilbert, RN
