    Bavar,

    I moved your question to the International Forum, the best place to find out about US licensure issues. The Phillipine Nursing Forum is strictly for discussions about working in the Philippines.

    Hi. I have already downloaded the forms from the California Board of Nursing Website. If you have seen, they have provided an Examination Application Requirements Checklist. It is written there that you need:

    (1)Appropriate Fees
    (2)Completed Application for Licensure by Examination
    (3)Completed Applicant Fingerprint Card (Hard Card)
    (4)One recent 2"x2" recent passport-type photograph
    (5)Request for Transcript forms directly from nursing school with certified transcript

    For International Graduates:

    A.) Send Breakdown of Educational Program for International Nursing Programs form to
    your school with the Request for Transcript form. Also, provide the Certified English
    Translation form to your certified translator if your transcript is not in English. (See
    Supplemental Application Instructions for International Graduates.)

    B.) 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. Also, provide copies of your certificates for midwifery and psychiatric nursing, if
    applicable.

    Others have said that the Nursing Program Verification is included and is required for all applicants but as I have seen in the Adobe File and as what I have posted here, it is not included in the checklist. Do I still need to print it and pass it to my school and then let them send it to CABON? Or it does not apply to all applicants?

    Thanks!
