I passed the NCLEX- Board of Nursing California in the year 2007 but I did not pursue due to retrogression. After 3 years, I failed to submit my Social Security Number (SSN) so I thought that my application was abandoned and destroyed as stipulated in the result certificate.

With these instances, I stopped dreaming all about working in the US. I started a family and raised my kids in the Philippines. I was employed as a Nurse and a Research Assistant in a Clinical Trials, simultaneously. I was contented with the meager income we made that make both ends meet. However, when the pandemic have hit the world everything has changed.

Due to the demands of the times, the United States of America opened opportunities for medical practitioners. It was this time that my husband encouraged me to apply. It was only through the referral of Ms. Ness Lee Guerrero to INCARE GLOBAL that I have known the agency. So, I started joining Lefora for Nurses and asked what will I do with my license especially with my case who passed the NCLEX ten years ago. With the incredible help of INCARE GLOBAL, I started to process my application through IPASS Processing Agency. I got my employer – The Methodist Hospital. Again, my American journey was revitalized.

There were lots of circumstances we faced. We underwent medical examinations twice because we were affected by retrogression on our first medical exams. I and my husband took also sputum. However, I thank God that we were given good results in our medical examinations.

Through all of these, I believe in the principle written in Romans 8:28 that “everything work together for good to those who love God and called according to His purpose”.

Truly, God is so faithful to His children, though we don’t know our life will be but He has promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Also, He said that He will be with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9).

In conclusion, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to whole staff of INCARE GLOBAL specially Ms. Fatima Sese, and Ms. Iris Mella and to Ms. Belle Salas and Atty. Jean Tinsay for your unwavering support and guidance throughout my application.

May the good Lord bless INCARE GLOBAL! MABUHAY!
