    It's the same test everywhere, but please remember that if you are trained anywhere other than the US, you need a VisaScreen issued by CGFNS to be able to practice here.

    makes no difference where you sit the exam as it is national exam so all questions for everyone comes from the same pot.

    What sort of visa do you have for the US? If just a tourist visa and you need to get a work vis of your own then you will need a VSC, if you already have a work/immigrant visa then you do not need a VSC. Also if you need a work/immigrant visa then I suggest you read up on retrogression as you will be affected

    Your husband need to get your visa sorted before you move and it will take longer than 1 month to do. Because you are married to a USC you do not need VSC. It is just a myth about the exam being different in the US to anywhere else. The exam is the same so taking it in the Philippines would probably be better as you can save money

    Whatever state you are planning on living in should be the state processing your paperwork, since you don't have to worry about a visa, you only have to worry about finding a nursing position. Take the NCLEX when you are ready, it doesn't matter where you take it and enjoy your vacation.

    What if I don't have any visa yet... Will it be easy for me to get a tourist visa in US just to take the NCLEX? please help..
