Nice to meet you. Like you I just move here in Florida. I still have some questions regarding taking NCLEX-RN here.
I finished nursing course in Philippines somewhere in Bicol, but unfortunately wasn't able to take board examination there.
What I do is, I searched all about taking NCLEX-RN here in Florida and I tried to contact the Florida Board on Nursing too.
I had found out that they do accept foreign graduate nursing student to take NCLEX-RN in state of Florida providing that they must provide the necessary/required papers in order for you to qualify in taking NCLEX-RN. Then, they asked me to consult CGNFS. CGFNS is an agency that helps you process your papers to what they called as "CES (Credentials Evaluation Service) Review". They will review your documents from the Philippines and send it to Florida Board of Nursing. From there, the Florida Board of Nursing will then approved you or not to take NCLEX-RN.
These are the only things I know about this matter. I hope this help you.
Please leave a comment if I do say wrong or if I'm on the wrong track.
