    You need to ask VT BON directly for that. Usual time for processing is indicated on their website as well and other details are on their application form and instructions. But like I said, it actually doesn't matter if you are able to send in your application now, complete with an unexpired license or a certification or wait until April to send a new license with them. With the grand scheme of things, a 1 month or so difference would not matter and had heard of several reports of other application forms getting their eligibility note/letter sooner even though they sent in their application forms much later than those who sent on a much earlier date but are incomplete. In fact, other State BON (New Mexico for example) do not accept incomplete application forms and req'ts anymore and return the whole thing as soon as they concluded that it was incomplete. Your choice on what to do.

    There is also no VT NCLEX. NCLEX is a national exam and is the same where ever one applies for licensure.

    Just had a skim of the requirements, pay particular attention to item #5. It says there, they want a license with good standing, and with an indicated expiration date.

    Please refer to the link I gave. Just click the link and it will direct you to VT's website and please read the instructions there. Everything is on their website and all instructions are in the application form w/c an applicant must download and print for herself as VT does not send hard copies of it by mail. The application forms are only for download and should be printed by the prospective applicant themselves and then filled up and sent by mail.

    The CES is not a requirement. VT evaluates your transcripts directly to be sent by your school together with the verification of education form w/c the school registrar must fill up and sent by them on a separate mail.

    The applicant will send a separate mail, together with the other requirements plus the fee. It needs a copy of the licence, in good standing order and with an indicated un-expired date. See item #5 on the list of requirements on the application form specific for foreign-educated nurses.

    The detailed instructions are all in the application form, please kindly refer to it by visiting the website I had linked from my previous post.

    1. You need an international money order for US dollars, payable to the secretary of state, your bank issues this is there will be a small charge.
    2. the link below will take you to the contacts page.
    http://www.sec.state.vt.us/secdesk/contact.html
    3. You will send all your paper work in at once - I understand that your School of Nursing sends your verification of Education in a sealed envelope (if you need to send this) - if you have an agency they will advise you, you should read the advice on the Vermont website if you need further clarification.

    The application has two boxes that you choose from and they are as follows:
    "I have practiced nursing as defined in 26 VSA. 1576 for at least (check the appropriate statement):
    120 days (960 hours) in the last five years
    50 days (400 hours) in the last two years"

    I don't know what 26 VSA is but I'm sure if you looked through their site you could find out.

    To add to the response below, any type of setting as long as you have practiced as a registered nurse, or the job requires the rn license.

    Hello and good day to everyone,


    After much reading and research on this forum, I have decided to apply for licensure to Vermont BON. Just like the other applicants here, I have some confusions regarding the following:

    1. Since I have undergone 6 months work as a Nurse trainee, I wonder if I have to check one of the boxes here, and if so, which one? OR do I just have to leave it blank? OR do I have to check the 120 days, as one of the posters here suggested as my RLE college training

    "I have practiced nursing as defined in 26 VSA. 1576 for at least (check the appropriate statement):
    a. 120 days (960 hours) in the last five years OR
    b. 50 days (400 hours) in the last two years"

    2. About the payment, I wonder if any of you here use BPI demand draft for payment. If not, what bank can you suggest?

    3. The school will only have to send the TOR and Course Description together with the form? No need for RLE?

    4. In the application, Am I answering the ff. questions correctly:
    a. child support - NO
    b. Taxes - Yes
    c. unemployment contributions -Yes

    5. I will only be sending the application form and the payment?

    Thank you very much for your assistance. I deeply appreciate it.
