Q&A: Retaking the Local Boards or Not, Name Change in California and more…

SEMAJ

Hi po, graduate po ako ng BSN last 2008,I didnt make it on the Board exam locally, my husband is a US citizen base in San Diego, and he wanted to get me here.Ask ko lng po if pwd po akong mag take ng NCLEX pagdating ko don, sabi po nla mas maige dw mag review don kesa rito sa pinas. how much po ang bayad sa review at fee pag d2 po sa pinas ? tsaka ganun din po sa Cali, magkano po lhat bbyaran and what are the requirements.. pls help me po…

Here is the thing I personally think it would be best if you can retake the local board exams since it is a prerequisite in applying in California Board of Nursing. It might come as a problem for you later on when they ask for a license in the country where you were educated. Even if you give them an explanation letter it might not guarantee that they’d let you sit in for the exam since they will also have to consider your reason for not being able to take the examination. As for the review, there really is some difference based on my own experience. But the thing is it costs a lot and most reviews are really short as compared to what we have in the Philippines. Since you do not have a definite time period on when you would be able to get to the US it would be best to utilize the time you have at the moment attending review sessions in the Philippines it is cheaper and teaching method is familiar. Its more fast paced in the US and most reviews are around 3- 4 days and is quite pricey but you do get a lot of helpful insight. Kaplan in the US has a lot to offer but they charge differently for international students. Review in the US is around $300- $800 and as for the application fee in CA BON is around $130 (without the interim permit).

ms. joan. ayos lng po ba kumuha ako ng CES sa ibang agency. without taking CGFNS exam? sa Massachusetts po daw kasi kahit CES lng

Its fine actually but the thing is the CGFNS is the most used agency in the Philippines and the other agencies where you will be requesting documents (school, PRC etc.) are familiar with the set up of CGFNS I am just afraid that if you avail of other agencies to do your CES credentials it might have issues and new adjustments both for you and the school/ PRC. Also, you are NOT required to take the CGFNS Qualifying Exam in order to avail of their CES services from CGNFS. It will only be a problem when the CGFNS Qualifying exam is a pre requisite in applying for Massachusetts which is NOT the case.

I am confused. Please help me. My father wants me to take exam in Saipan. Maybe he means that I should be a licensed nurse in Saipan first. This is possible but I already have my eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN in California. Which task should I accomplish first? Is it licensure in Saipan or licensure in California. Please help me, Thank you and God Bless!

It would be best to sit down for the NCLEX-RN examination for California and then upon passing, transfer your license to Saipan just so to avoid any discrepancies with your papers. And it would be a waste having an eligibility with California and not using it.

Q&A: NCLEX-RN Fees, Saipan Board of Nursing and more…

Pls help me i need some advice and guide…i just graduated this mar 2009.i took the board exam and just waiting for the result….i am planning to apply for the nclex exam…could you help me on how to do it….though i read some from the internet…i am having a hard time to follow…i just want to have some advice coming from the expert and that is you… thank you very much…and god bless

Okay as much as I want to guide you through the whole process there are a lot of decisions to be made that I cannot make for you. For starters, please wait first for the June NLE results since most states will require you to have a license where you were educated and took up Nursing. If you passed the exam, decide which state in the US would you want to apply in and we’ll take it from there. Message me if you’ve made your decision and I’d be glad to help you with further information.

hi miss joan!! nclex cali passer po ako and malapit na magexpire papers ko, plan ko sana paendorse papers ko to vermont… pano po ba ang gagawin ko?? ano yung CES Full Education Report or the Healthcare Profession and Science Report…. how can i apply for that??? pls miss joan help… thanks po….

You can apply for that through the CGFNS website. You can also download the application form there and most of the instructions you need are in the forms you will be downloading. It basically uses CGFNS to evaluate your data such as school records, licenses etc.

MISS RN

IELTS and CES is not a requirement for California Board of Nurisng . Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

how long does it take to get a reply after mailing an application for retake?

It depends on the state you applied in but usually give it about a month or two before you receive another letter of eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN examination.

hi ms. joan. i received a letter from the cali BON stating that i should send them the clinical portion of my RLE. my school submitted the TOR and RLE already, and the RLE is on the 3rd page of the TOR. how do i tell them that it’s already attached? because i don’t know what else they’re looking for, i have another copy of my TOR and the RLE is the same as the one the school submitted. i really need help because i thought my application would be processed in a timely manner since i submitted complete requirements. can i email the cali BON or snail mail them? thank you for your help in advance.

It would be best to resubmit the papers that the California BON is asking as opposed to questioning their demands. The best thing to do is to have the documents ready and then attach a copy of their letter with the needed documents. If you want to get in touch with them it would be better to give them a call as opposed to emailing because they usually do not reply in emails.

hi can i ask if how much is the amount you have to spend for the nclex exam without the help of the review centers? can i work in the US even if I only have volunteer experience in the Philippines? is it okay if I will not the CGFNS to work in the US? thanks hope to hear from you soon

Basic NCLEX-RN fees varies depending on the Board of Nursing you applied to since they all have different requirements. Let’s just say on an average application to the Board of Nursing will take about $300- $500 (this includes furnishing requirements for school documents, mailing etc.). And then registration to take the NCLEX-RN exam is $200 and if you are to take the examination outside of US there will be an additional $150 fee.  Pretty much that is the basic expenses incured when taking the NCLEX-RN examination. As for getting work in the US, preferences of having experience or not varies for each employer. CGNFS is not a requirement in all states so that will depend on which US state you plan to apply in. Hope this helped.
