NCLEX in CA + NY

  1. [font=book antiqua]hi guys!
    [font=book antiqua]its been a puzzlin' week for me
    [font=book antiqua]i just checked out the ca bon webiste
    [font=book antiqua]regarding application for nclex..
    [font=book antiqua]a friend of mine told me that its gonna
    [font=book antiqua]take a while for them to give us the a.t.t.
    [font=book antiqua]but some would say ca bon is the fastest
    [font=book antiqua]amongst all the state.. which is better among
    [font=book antiqua]the two ny or ca bon regarding a.t.t.?
    [font=book antiqua]because i believe in ny i still have to undergo
    [font=book antiqua]cvs for ny state...
    [font=book antiqua]
    [font=book antiqua]is there any state in us that it would only take them
    [font=book antiqua]3-5 mos for att? and also i sat-in for cgfns/nclex
    [font=book antiqua]review in labagnoy review center for a month but i
    [font=book antiqua]quit for some personal reasons, they were talling us
    [font=book antiqua]that study guide such as [font=book antiqua]saunder's / kaplan
    [font=book antiqua]is not enough speacially [font=book antiqua]if we dont have [font=book antiqua]a hospital
    [font=book antiqua]setting backround.. is that [font=book antiqua]true?
    [font=book antiqua]
    [font=book antiqua]i really need guidance from this website regarding
    [font=book antiqua]att and review materials thanks!!!!

    actually CA makes u eligible after 3-6 mos. among all the states, CA is the slowest...

    i disagree. answering NCLEX questions should be based on the book! it is theoretical. you should not answer based on the real world(the one you experienced in the hospital). because what we are doing in the hospital may not be the ideal way to do it...

    saunders and kaplan are good review material... i used them both. study on my own and passed on my first try @75.

    maybe they are telling that to have more profit on their review center...

    Filipino RNs nowadays apply for either Vermont or New Mexico and many of them are posting that it only takes about 2-3 mos. because they don't require any service from CGFNS to be made eligible. They then endorse to another state that doesn't also require any service from CGFNS such as CA.

    There will also be instances that it is better to just apply directly to the State BON you would like to be licensed to, esp. for those State BONs that require CGFNS' CES such as NJ, FL, IL to name a few.

    If you'll do a search here, you'll come upon threads and posts on how to apply to those 2 BON.

    [font=book antiqua]hi lawrence!
    [font=book antiqua]so you mean its a lot better to apply for
    [font=book antiqua]a ces? like the on in ny cvs for ny?
    [font=book antiqua]but it will take like a year for them to
    [font=book antiqua]evaluate my credentials.. and another
    [font=book antiqua]6 months for att
    [font=book antiqua]thanks!

    To take it from the State where you would like to work is eventually the fastest!

    You might be able to sit for NCLEX faster from any other state but eventually, endorsement will take the same procedure as if you're applying for examination. The difference however is that if you're licensed in other state, you can work pretty soon in the State where you originally wanted to work by using temporary permit.

    fastest to have att according to some posts here are New Mexico and Vermont.

    *you should decide where you really want to work ... dont think which is the fastest... just like what they said, you may take the nclex in a little length of time.. but the endorsement process "might" take long..

    Agree. So lana, w/c state do you want to work?? If you answer this 1st then posters here will be able to help you out better.

    FutureUSRN is also right. It may boil down to just about the same time-frame if you include the endorsement process. But, still depends on w/c state you want to work. There are always excemptions to everything.

    [font=book antiqua]i'd be glad if i'll be working in ny or nj
    [font=book antiqua]but they both need cvs or ces and its goin
    [font=book antiqua]to take a while for cgfns to evaluate my
    [font=book antiqua]credentials, i actually learned from a friend
    [font=book antiqua]that cvs for ny state took her 14 mos before
    [font=book antiqua]she was allowed to apply for att and so is
    [font=book antiqua]with nj... so im really having a flaming hand on
    [font=book antiqua]which to choose :flamesonb
    [font=book antiqua]thanks so much! i need more opinon :wink2:

    [font=book antiqua]how long usually does the endorsement take?
    [font=book antiqua]i'd really want to work in ny or nj but like what ive
    [font=book antiqua]said they both need cvs/ces and thats goin to take
    [font=book antiqua]a while like 14-16mos... and im going to apply that thru
    [font=book antiqua]cgfns, i need more opinion.. thank you so much!

    [font=book antiqua]does really the endorsement process wil take long?
    [font=book antiqua]like how many months? if i choose ny or ny it will
    [font=book antiqua]take 12-14mos for cvs for ny and ces for nj to evaluate
    [font=book antiqua]my credentials, then thats the only time for me to apply for
    [font=book antiqua]my att, and its $275 for cvs + i think its a waste of time
    [font=book antiqua]and money, i perhaps can move later to nj or ny or have
    [font=book antiqua]a reciprocity.. thank u so much! :1luvu:
