Sep 9, '08Green card gives you permission to live and work in the US, and you are a resident here with that. However, you are not a US citizen and can sit for the NLE since you still hold the passport from the Philippines and therefore are not exempt from this requirement. As long as you hold citizenship in the Philippines, then this a requirement that you are going to need to fulfill. The only ones that are exempt are those that hold a US passport only, as the PRC will not permit a foreigner to sit for that exam. But as a green card holder, there is no exemption for you. Much has already been written on this very same topic over the past few months, just have a good read here.
It actually gives the requirement for having the local license on their website and this is the very reason that you have not heard from them nor been given approval to sit for the exam. This has been a well known fact on this site for months before January even came around and everyone was trying to get their applications in before the end of 2007. They are not making any exceptions to this rule.
We have not seen them grant one exemption in this case, so do not expect them to do it for you. You are going to need to write the NLE if you wish to get licensed in CA, there is no other way around it.
Best of luck to you.
Sep 9, '08ms. suzanne. if i only knew about this. i already did every processing and
paid for everything. i feel "LOST" at the moment. I HAVE TO GO BACK IN THE PHILIPPINES AGAIN AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. but atleast i know where i stand. i won't expect for re-consideration anymore. thank you for taking time in answering MY questions or my dilemma. may god bless your life with full of happiness and graces. you help people a lot especially me.
it took me a lot of time processing everything because i dont have friends here to ask for "INFORMATIONS"i just found out about this website through browsing/surfing the net(blessfully)ALL I DID WAS visited the BRN website but it wasn't stated there. they said that for international graduates: 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.
so i wrote a written explanation and hoping to be reconsidered. miss suzanne.thank you for everything. your such a good person.
Oct 9, '08Hello. Good day. I received a letter from the BON of California and it indicates there all the requirements I passed, as well as those that I still need to pass (transcripts that should be send by our school). I should pass it within a year... One of the requirements listed there was the Method 1 or "live scan fingerprint" that should be done in California. I was wandering why it is the one listed for my fingerprint application, since I submitted and paid for the Method 2 which is the "hard card" fingerprint application. Should I ask this to the BON?... Thank you and Godbless

you are a BSN graduate but underboard, so why not take the NCLEX-RN, why you want to take the NCLEX-PN when you are qualified to take the NCLEX-RN and besides even if you will pass the nclex-pn you will not be able to get a visa to work in US, only the NCLX-RN passer can get a visa and not the pn passer. just browse this site and you will get a lot of information.:spin:
thank you very much!!
Oct 13, '08Quote from babymae23What is international graduate? is there an international school now in the Philippines offering a BSN. If that is an international school, then why they required a local license, I dont get it. Well as far as I know if you are a BSN graduate in the Philippines and no local license, and you mention that you are a green card holder, I believe you can take the NCLEX-RN, but can not apply an interim permit (IP) to at least work for 6 months, I learned this from my friend, who were not able to apply for an IP, am not sure if this is a new rule or what because 7 years ago my wife apply an IP and she was able to get it and worked for 6 months while doing her NCLEX-RN review. hope this info will help you.hi. i am a international graduate in the philippines. i am a green card holder. i have heard from some of my friends that i have to BE A LICENSE HOLDER IN THE PHILIPPINES. the BRN now requires License from my country before i can take the NCLEX EXAM? is this true? i'm done with all the processing and im just waiting for my att and it scares me because they might not ALLOW me to take NCLEX for the reason that i am not a license holder in the philippines. do they require it now? pls help me. it confuses me.thak you so much
Oct 13, '08It is not an international school that you attended in the Philippines but the fact that you graduated out of the US, that makes you an international graduate in terms of the US.
The issue once again is that you must have the NLE done if you are going to be working in CA. The IP also has no bearing on this either, for the IP it means that all requirements have been met to get the IP; for the internationally trained RN, one of the requirements is that they have have taken and passed the CGFNS exam as well as English exams in order to get the IP. CGFNS is going to require the NLE be written before they will let you sit for the CGFNS exam, this has always been one of their requirements. As a green card holder, the Philippines will permit you to sit for the NLE since you are still holding a passport from there. Even dual citizens are not exempt from this.
Oct 13, '08Quote from eds_nesisindhaus07Pleaae just have a good read on the International Forum, this has been discussed there many times. As well as the reasons why we always recommend that one does not go thru CA for licensure if they do not have a SSN# already.Hello. Good day.

Nov 5, '08hi. ms. susan. its been a long time i haven't visited this website because i am working as a caregiver and my new client doesnt have any signal for wifi.
ms. susan remember that i was applying for nclex exam? and i did send a letter to the BRN, i called 2weeks ago, they said that they WAIVED my letter and i can now take the NCLEX but before they do that they have to recieve my school papers which i did last april 2008 but i gues it was misplaced so my school will send another one again.
Nov 19, '08HI MS. SUZANNE. i already recieved my ATT from pearsonvue via EMAIL just this day. 11/17/08. the BRN of Sacramento waived my letter of explaination. i am so glad and i am thankful for your help too.
i am now going to start studying and hopefully i can avail or try suzanne's study plan. thank you verymuch miss suzanne.
Nov 21, '08Be aware that just because you received permission to test, the file is still going to be reviewed by someone in a different dept; there is no guarantee that they will automatically issue a license to you without all of the requirements being met.
When they make a requirement, then it is normally assumed that it will be followed.
Best of luck to you.
