    Ms. Suzanne or anybody please help me to understand the letter send to me by Saipan BON....

    "Your license is valid until June 30, 2007. The Board will mail your application for renewal of license to the most current address in your file, not less than ninety (90) days before your license espires.

    In order to renew your license:

    1. You must complete thirty (30) hours of approved Continuing Education (C.E.) three (3) months prior to the expiration of yuor license period. Proof of 30 hours of C.E.U.'s must accompany the renewal application.

    2. The appropriate fee and recent 2"x2" photograph (taken within the last six months) must accompany the renewal application. Application form must also be signed and notorized.

    3. Please advised the Board's Office of any change(s) in your name, address, marital status, etc."

    My current situation is that I'm still here in the Philippines and haven't work in US, I still don't have an SSN, and most probably I'll still be here until my license expires... Is it possible that I can renew my license here in the Philippines even without an SSN??? need some advice pls... I don't want to take the NCLEX again!!!!.... Thanks!

    follow up - What is "Continuing Education"? thanks again...

    continuing education is education via seminars, workshops, conferences, presentations, online or home study articles, inservices, facility grand rounds, classes, college courses taken after receiving nursing license.

    many states have this requirement but not all. some require specific courses like infection control, aids, patient safety etc

    contact hour equivalencies
      • 1 ceu = 10 contact hours
      • 1 contact hour = 0.1 ceu
      • 1 contact hour = 50 minutes
      • 1 academic semester hour = 15 contact hours
      • 1 academic quarter hour = 12.5 contact hours
      • 1 cme = 60 minutes or 1.2 contact hours
      • 1 ama credit = 1.2 contact hours or 60 minutes
    since you are not in us, they can be obtained via internet or course sent in mail.

    You do not need to take the NCLEX again, so do not worry about that.

    Does it say on your BON website what CE's are accepted? Ca will not issue a license without SSN and you will not get that until in the US with a valid work permit so where abouts in the process are you? When was your PD? I would suggest keeping your license valid, don't forget you can hold a few licenses for different states as long as you meet their requirements

    PD is the receipt of your I140. If you have not received approval then it is not pending for retrogression and you will not come under retrogression until it is approved. The seminars in the Philippines will not count towards CES they have to be with an approved course, I would look at online

    thank you soo much for that info again. ic, yup my PD is still pending, reckon it'll take a lot of time from approval to the time i get my visa ready i found an online CE at rn.com, my BON didn't respond to my email, guess ill do the CE hours there coz my license will expire this june. by the way ma'am, what will happen if i dont renew my license? ill just be inactive? then what will happen? i can just apply for renewal for it to be active again? i dont need to take the nclex no more?

    Something is not adding up here, not sure why your PD is still pending if you have had something submitted to immigration on your behalf. The PD is the date that it was received by them and nothing more than that.

    CEUs need to be accredited in the US by a licensing body here, none of the classes in the Philippines will count for this requirement as far as continuing education.

    There are many courses or classes that can be done on-line and that you can get credit for.
