Since you are classified as an international RN, you would have to submit a list of nursing courses from the PI.
Once the state of Hawaii nursing board approves you then you will be allowed to take the NCLEX.
On another note, jobs in hawaii is much harder to come by. It is especially hard for mainland or international nurses to acquire jobs let alone locals who graduated from local nursing schools.
Oahu, is currently pumping out approxiamtely 250-300 nursing student every semester and this is on a continuous basis. The job market for nursing jobs
are saturated with new graduates, eager and willing to do anything to get a job so hospitals have the upper hand.
Fortunately, most hospitals are unionized so a decrease in salary for nurses will not happen. However, I predict an increase in patient to nurse ratio's and eliminating more LPN and nursing aid positions and forcing the RN's to carry increased responsibility; therefore creating an increase in the risk of patient safety.
This is why, I have decided to move to California. However, I have done some research and in the Northern California region, bay area, there is also an influx of new graduates and nurses to relocate to the bay area sue to increased wages and a lower patient to nurses ratio.
