Quote from suzanne4
i still need clarification.
so far what i have is if i attend this private international nursing program, i would take the nclex through the oklahoma state board of nursing since the us affiliated school is at seminole community college in oklahoma state. the oklahoma state board of nursing has a $85 application fee + $200 for the registration of the exam.
i am a ca resident & this is what i found:
the issue still is not with whether or not another school will accept its credits, but if a state will accept the curriculum for licensure as an rn in that state. this is what you need to find out from the bon. not all porgrams are accepted all over.
ca is very specific in what they will and will not accept. that is why i keep mentioning, do your homework first.
[font='times new roman']to qualify for endorsement (reciprocity) into california as a rn, you must hold a current and active license in another state or canada, have completed an educational program meeting all california requirements, and have passed national council licensure examination (nclex-rn) or the state board test pool examination (sbtpe). the canadian comprehensive examination is not acceptable. if you do not possess these qualifications, you do not
qualify for licensure by endorsement and must apply to take the examination
[font='times new roman']
[font='times new roman']the ca fees are:
initial endorsement application
temporary license (optional)
so i would spend $106 additional fees to be licensed in ca.
the dean of admission from iuon advised me that i would still be able to work in ca (or anywhere in the us) eventhough i don't have a rn license through the ca board of nursing.
i greatly appreciate your suggestions and feedback on my questions about this school to suzanne4, opal & others who have responded.
it has given me wise insight on deciding to enroll or reconsider.
i thank god for this awesome nursing website that has allowed me to interact with honest and insightful people who i'm sure have a passion for nursing.
anymore suggestions or feedback, i look forward to receiving. thanks!
god bless you all,
