    Based from my recent conversation with the head of saipan BON Ms. R. Tudela, The processing time right now is 3 months and according to her what makes the processing slow is the arrival of documents coming from the school and other registering agency. She also stressed that make sure you accomplish the forms accurately and completely to avoid further delay.

    Hi! Where can i communicate with Saipan BON. I already emailed at cbone@vzpacifica.net but i did not receive a reply. Is there any other way I would know if they already received my papers? Ive been waiting for almost 3 months now for my eligibility.Thanks!

    Welcome

    I would reconsider using Saipan for licensure unless you are planning on nursing there. Many have had problems with them as everything has to be done via snail mail and a few have had problems contacting them regarding their application

    Depends on the BON you are applying to, we do not recommend California for initial licensure and Florida requires at least 2 years experience in the state you have a license before they will allow you to endorse. What state are you planning on living in because as a rule even when endorsing you still have to meet their requirements for foreign trained nurse?

    With retrogression and currently looking at several years waiting for a work visa I would take the time to consider where you want to work. There are a few threads discussing various BON's so could have a read

    Hello. i just passed the local board this month and i'm currently applying for nclex in saipan. i've got the application forms and i have few questions regarding the requirements. one of its requirements is a Social Security Number. i just want to clarify if this means a SS number in my country? cause i do have one already. and another thing is that i don't have a license yet but in the application form, it requires me to indicate the license number and date of expiry. what should i do? i'm really confused and i just want to send complete application to avoid further delay. please help.:bowingpur

    You need to write US SSN if you have one.:spin:

    It means a SSN# for the US. What you have for your country does not apply for anything in the US.
    Please take the time to do some reading on this site, unless you are actually going to try to get a job in Saipan, it most definitely would not be to your advantage to go for licensure there.

    Be aware that for any state or territory that requires the local license, you are going to need to wait until you actually have a number assigned to you. There is nothing that you can do to speed up the process. And add into the fact that Saipan is now following everything from the US, including visas. You are looking at probably 7 years or more to be able to get a visa for the US. Saipan also requires a full US tourist visa just to visit there now, no more three day tourist visas.

    One cannot obtain a SSN# until they are actually in the US and on a visa that will permit them to work here legally. I would recommend that you take the time to do some reading on this site before you do anything. Saipan will actually take you much longer to get everything done since they are not very fast in getting verification to CGFNS for the VSC or for verification to another state.
