    Are you a foreign grad, or US grad?

    They are normally several months for either, but for foreign, you must also first submit a CES.

    Last week, August 28th? Did you actually have a Credentials Eval called the CES submitted as well? FL will not do one thing with your application until they have the CES, if you attended shcool in another country. Do nto remember where you trained, just remember the name.

    Florida takes several months go give authorization, they are not fast. And expect a few weeks before you will get a confirmation from them.

    I had my credential evaluation for exactly 10 days.

    Yes, it's a credential evaluation.I was informed they already forwarded the copy to Florida BON since i also paid extra to send me a copy.I just want to know how long i will be waiting to know my eligibility to sit for the NCLEX.One poster here said it takes 3 weeks.I'm still waiting for a reply from another poster here who also applied to Florida BON last August.

    Average time that I see is about two months, I would figure on that if trying to decide what to do next.

    hmm.. FL is quite fast if it just takes a couple of months. 'cause im still preparing myself right now. but im already working to get my transcripts and other requirements from school. i'm planning to sit for nclex within the first half of next year. is it true that they (FL BON) only allot 3 months as window to take the exam?

    neat!

    just like what's stated in their site. im also having my credentials evaluated there. btw, what exactly were the documents you submitted?

    and i suppose all of them were original copies.

    Yes, all were original copies(TOR,Proof of Graduation-Diploma only certified true copy,Course Description, Breakdown of Educational Program for International Nursing Programs,Nursing License Verification from PRC-optional) sent directly by the school to the evaluator.
    As soon as i knew that they already received the documents from the school, that's the time i submitted my application with fee, and from this date, 10 working days evaluation was done.
    A follow up efforts will help too like emailing them for the status of the request for evaluation.
    Bloodytom, be sure to use a reliable courier in sending the documents and the application,though it cost much but you should have a reference number for making a follow up.

    hi there! Can I ask some questions? I'm interested to know about the "course description". I understand that this is in the form of a handbook/syllabus, am I right? It's not required by other evaluating agencies (only the TOR with RLE) but did you have to submit one? should it be certified also?

    how about the "Breakdown of Educational Program"? did you download this form or did the evaluator give you a form that your school can use?

    for FL bon, did you show proof of passing an English profiency exam (IELTS/TOEFL)?

    thanks, shiina.
