California Board of Registered Nursing now requires local NLE - page 15

What states in the US (at present) do not require a local license as part of the NCLEX application (before one can sit for the NCLEX exam)? Your reply would be very much appreciated. God bless... Read More

    Hi misty dawn,

    I am also planning to send my application to California. As far as I know, CaBON accepts certificate of passing in lieu of the license. That's what my nursing classmates did. They sent their application in July and received their eligibility in September. To the second coursers who already submitted their application, Did you have to ask your previous school to send your transcript? or the transcript from your nursing school was enough? Thanks!

    I believe the TOR from your nursing school is enough as long as your school's registrar will collate all the subjects from your previous course and school to your nursing TOR.

    I applied for licensure exams in California late last year and I was rendered eligible (no NLE but with explanation) and took the exam a few months back. Unfortunately, I did not make it. The Board then sent me a retake form. Do you think I should proceed filing the application? Will I be asked to file an explanation again?

    I think it will be different that you are resitting the exam not starting application from scratch. If they require it now they will tell you when you resubmit resit application. One thing to think of though is due to retrogression employers may expect you to get nursing experience whilst waiting and for that you may want to reconsider sitting the NLE

    The letter of why the exam was not written is no longer accepted by CA, they are not waiving that requirement.

    As mentioned above, you are looking at five years plus for a chance of a green card for the US and perhaps much longer. Without having written the NLE, you are unable to go to any other country to get experience nor work in your own country. Think of it if you were the employer, would you be willing to take a chance on a new nurse that has never worked in the field for more than five years? Even as an American, one would have issues getting hired and they do not have to worry about competition in terms of getting a visa.

    Would most definitely recommend the NLE to you, even if you had passed the NLCEX exam; you are still in for a very long wait. CA also has a very high rate of unemployment now over the past few weeks so that is going to make things even harder for getting a job there as well.

    Best of luck to you.

    Hi, all...
    so, if one has his eligibility, there is no need for the NLE or it's still needed to register?

    Having eligibility just means you can sit the exam no guarantee that you will get a license or letter stating you meet requirements if you haven't taken local boards. Ca have been strict about it especially if not already in the US as retrogression will take years and gaining nursing experience may be expected by employer and for that you will need a local license

    hi andrea..since you passed the local board in the philippines then you need to send them the copy of your license or your license number..that's what my friend did..she even took an oath here in san francisco when she passed the local board exam in the philippines..
    it is in the application form too when you apply to take the nclex-rn exam here in US that you have to include your license if you have one..
    so, better submit it before your application will expire..

    goodLuck to you & godbLess..
