    And training done during school for your RLE is not considered work experience and can never be included or considered as that. That was a student only and you were not working under your own license then.

    Hello Suzanne,

    Thanks for your reply. Does that mean that I should not check any box on this particular question?
    ~
    "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 OR
    ___ 50 days (400 hours) in the last two years"

    What do you suggest? Shall I just leave it blank and attach an explanation letter. I have emailed the BON regarding this but they have an automated reply that does not answer my specific question. I understand the bulk of their work.

    Can anyone here have suggestions too? I plan to send my application this week but this particular question kept me hanging.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I suggest you get some nursing experience and save your money. If that is a requirement and you don't have it why waste your money.

    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.
    My experience...
    1.6 mos volunteer? jst leave it blank or put a "0" and add a cover letter stating that you havent found work yet..if employed then you have to fill it out
    2.Bank/demand draft in dollars (must have dollar account)..i used landbank
    3.Our school registrar knew what to do when i handed the VT Verification of Education form
    4.That was how I answered them
    5.include a fotocpy of your license, pasport, etc(look at the instruction page)

    goodluc! Ace the exam! strength to the filipino!

    Good day again,
    How do I inform the Vermont BON about my change of mailing address? I submitted my application for licensure 3 weeks ago, but I will transfer residence next month. Do I inform them through email, phone or do I have to make a letter and send it to them through post?

    hi rncel..

    YES! you should email them about your new adress so that they can change immediately.Because later,they will send you a card for your registration i.d.

    hello der..

    i past my local board 2 years ago, and im not been employed as a nurse, its is possible to take nclex in vermont without experience???? thanks....

    It is possible to apply for licensure for any of the states if you have no experience however with the many years wait do not be surprised if employers start looking for experience before they are willing to petition you

    hi, even in vermont they do not require experience??

    hi im a graduate of a new CON. we are actually the first batch of nurses our school produced.
    now, since our school is still a newbie our registrar doesnt know what to do with our forms. can you give us advices or tips. its been a month since we passed our application to our school and until now its not yet finished.
  11. by   suzanne4
    The forms are actually quite self-explanatory. They just need to fill in the information that is specifically requested.

    You may with to contact the registrar of an existing school to get specific information from them for your school or better yet, ask your school to contact them.

    Please be aware that if you are the first grad of a new school, it is going to take much longer to get permission to sit for the NCLEX exam, the BON does their own credential evaluation and they have not had anyone thru there before. so expect extra time to be spent.

    does that always all the time?

    im not really in a hurry to take nclex. but i have a trip for 3 months starting this january so im hoping i can take it by the last week of dec up to the 3rd week of january. do you think it will take much longer even if we send our applications by the first week of oct?

    i am also hoping that i can receive my eligibility before i leave. the eligibilty takes 1 year beforee it expires, right? and the att will take up 3 months.

    usaually how long does vermont takes to process the papers?

    thank you very much suzanne your such a big help.
