Hello all! I will be living in Texas and was wondering if anyone from Philippines also took the NCLEX. My mga requirements pala, yung credential test... ang mahal!! If anyone can be nice to help me, which credential service do you prefer over IERF or CGFNS? They are both $350... but is one faster then the other? Also, I'm planning to take NCLEX review... can anyone suggest a good one that they had experience? Thanks!!

Hi. I have a few people who advised me that its better to take the NCLEX there in the Philippines as it is the same here in America. My sister's friend who is nurse advised me to tell my fiance to take the NCLEX in the Philippines before coming here if he passed the local board but unfortunately he didnt pass the NLE so he would have to start all over to take the NCLEX here. Check the BON for Texas. I believe they require CGFNS + TOEFL.

I chose CGFNS just because I'm more familiar with it. :) For reviewer, I used Saunders 5th edition.

 

I suggest you check allnurses.com for forums discussing NCLEX applications in Texas. Also, make sure to read the process and requirements from Texas BON's website.

 

Good luck! :)

The NCLEX (the exam itself) is the same whether you'll take it in the US or in the Philippines. The difference is that if you'll take it outside the US, you'd have to pay an additional $150 international testing fee on top of the $200 exam fee. :)

 

Some states require that you pass the licensing exam where you got your nursing degree, some don't. I'm no expert at this so better to just check the requirements of the BON you plan to apply with. :)

Check the TEXAS requirements. it depends on the states requirements, they are asking IELTS and CGFNS

better to take an exam here in the USA if u have already a SSN easy to apply .

 

good luck..

In IL, they do not require for us to take CGFNS. I used Saunders and Kaplan. Gather as many practice exams as possible so you can practice answering it on your spare time. :)

Actually from what I understand, he wouldn't have to start all over (that would be awful!!), but just have 1 of the credential evaluation services verify his courses. Also, they told me you dont have to be a local board passer (NLE) to take the NCLEX as long as you get your courses credentialized.

For those who have taken NCLEX in Philippines, where and when is offered? I did a google search but did not find any recent topics regarding this! But it would be much easier to just take it here vs. waiting til I'm with my fiance there! But.... how sure are you that NCLEX passers in Philippines is accepted by the state board of nursing in TX (or any other state in the U.S.)? I would hate to pass it here only to be forced to take it AGAIN over there.

Oh nice to know he doesnt have to start over again. I believe NYC you dont have to be a local board passer (NLE) not to sure though but I know its more strict here in NJ. I had a friend who is a local passer in the Philippines and took her NCLEX also in the Philippines and when she came to visit with her J1 visa she was able to work as RN in the hospital. Confirm with BON of Texas though to be sure. If my fiance had passed the NLE there and took the NCLEX there my tita who works at a nursing home and my sister's friend was gonna get him a job as soon as he got his papers but unfortunately we have to wait until he takes the NCLEX.

NCLEX is NCLEX whether you take it in the US or in the Philippines or elsewhere for that matter.

 

NCLEX is an examination for the licensing of nurses in the US. But it's only a part of the licensing process.

 

You apply for licensure to the Board of Nursing (BON) in your state of choice. They will check your credentials based on their list of requirements. If they deem you eligible for licensure, you'll be issued an Authorization to Test (ATT). Only then will you be able to sit the exam. Once you pass, the BON will release your license.

 

The NCLEX is administered by Pearson VUE. So you have to apply with the BON first then register with Pearson VUE. There are steps in between (quite a lot). So I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the licensing process, most especially  in your particular state.

 

 

You can check the following websites:

 

allnurses.com

 

ncsbn.org

 

pearsonvue.com/nclex

 

 

PS

 

Some really do have to start over and take the whole nursing course or at least part of it. Sad but true.

Go kasa website ng pearsonVue, fill up ka ng form jan eh registered mo information mo, tapos saang states at city kaba? Meron yan local testing center jan. ang ATT 3 months..Pro bago ka mag reg. appy ka muna Nclex application kung saan ka mag exam.

Example. California, submit ka muna application doon, finger print etc, punta kasa website ng states kung saan ka mag exam ng nclex, tapos reg ka doon meron mga requirements , tapos ang BON mag request yan sila ng TOR from the school kung saan ka graduate ang school mo dapat ang mag send ng mga original TOR dapat meron kang utusan sa pinas na mag asikaso yan.. D pwde galing sa iyo anG TOR once ma approved k ng states kung saan ma exam , jan ma time mag reg sa pearsonVue kasi one validity ung sa states kung saan ma exam, kelangan maka exam ka bago ma expired ung reg mo sa BON

The ATT can be valid for 3mos but some states require that you sit the exam within 60, 75, 90 days...

Most of the time, the BONs require that the TORs be submitted tp them directly from the school you graduated from. This is to prevent tampering.

Check BON OF Texas for the requirements,sis. I advise you to have your credential evaluation done bago umalis kasi sometimes you need to follow up with your school kng may dumating n requests and syempre you need to pay them para sa pagpapadala pero kng may mapagkakatiwalaan ka naman magfollow up mas okey. Start the process now months din ang aabutin kasi nyan sayang naman oras :)

Good luck:)

Btw make sure kung saang state ka tlg magwork kasi other state requires you to pass again their state boards before giving you a license others just requires you reciprocity/ endorsement. I took nclex in 2009 in makati but im not sure if we have nclex pa in the philippines. I enrolled in gapuz for my nclex Review.They will give you question trends in nclex.
