    Hi guys, quick question. Where does it state that a dual citizen who is foreign educated needs license in the country of education before being eligible to take the NCEX? I intend to take the NCLEX in California and I have been on their website and read through it multiple times and did not come across that information. I'd appreciate your answer. Thank you very much!

    The information is right there on the page about applying for licensure by examination:

    http://www.rn.ca.gov/applicants/lic-exam.shtml

    "IN ADDITION FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS:
    A. Send Breakdown of Educational Program for International Nursing Programs form to your school with the Request for Transcript form. Also provide the Certified English Translation form to your certified translator if your transcript is not in English. (See Supplemental Application Instructions for International Graduates with the application.)
    B. Submit a copy of your license or diploma that allows you to practice professional nursing in the country where you were educated. If you do not hold a license, a written explanation is required. Also, provide copies of your certificates for midwifery and psychiatric nursing, if applicable." (Emphasis mine.)

    Note that it is entirely up to the BRN as to whether they accept a "written explanation" of why you don't have a local license, or refuse to issue you a license without the "local" license.

    Why not, just take the NLE and if you pass it, then, it's one less requirement to worry about and be done with it? You're now good in any state, plus it will look better I think on your job resume.

    If you fail, well, then you can still apply to those states that don't require it.
