If my opinion counts for anything, and your goal is to work in the US, do not take the NLE exam. And this is something that I have been saying for more than one year.
You can start the process immediately, as soon as you have a completed set of transcripts. If you wait to take the exam, then you are waiting for your score, etc. And have thrown out three months plus just by that. You can have the exam, NCLEX-RN, written by the time that you would get your score from the NLE. And no concerns about whether or not something will be accepted.
And just from an outsider view looking in, have never been to the Philippines.
If things have not been cleared up already from the June exam, and the PRC is in power one day and then is not, how in the world can it be expected that things will be done completely on the up and up in just one month? The courts are still having issues over this past exam, and that will not change for sometime. Remember that the exam is supposedly being held in less than one month from now.
And if with all of the issues, only 17,000 passed, and that was before the 1500+ that have to do a retake. How in the world is the passing rate so low to begin with? Something is not quite right with that either.
