Hi. I am an undergraduate of nursing in the Philippines. I finished 3 years of bsn but I didn't finish my last year because I need to go here. Can I take the Lpn licensure immediately? What can you suggest for me to do? Help
The State Board requires that one take and pass the NCLEX-PN -- and only through the supervision of a State-approved Nursing school.
That said, there are not very many Nursing schools that I know of who will credit Core Nursing courses from outside the U.S. There needs to be a direct "articulation" agreement between two schools for transfer-credits to take place.
If you still have questions, post back here and I'll see what I can do to help you out.
