I am an immigrant who graduated the LVN program in california and have been working from 2007-2010. I went back to the Philippines to start my BSN education and will be graduating on March 2013. Now I know that California BON will give me a hard time applying for a license, maybe even deny me. My question is, which state will most likely be my best choice. As long as I work for the state corrections, it would not matter where. I just want to get info on states that do not require as much, and take less time to get things going. I really wish to start my RN career ASAP. I would also like to get information on New York BON. How well they treat foreign grads, and if they require a local license for me to apply nclex. Thank you for your time on reading this. Any help would be much appreciated. God bless you all my fellow nurses.
