    If your goal is to work in the U.S. you don't even need to be licensed in the Philippines to be able to sit for the NCLEX RN exam and to apply for the Visa Screen Certification (for immigration). And, yes since you are not licensed in the Philippines you won't have Phil. hospital experience but it is not needed either. The US hospital you work with will provide the necessary orientation and Training Program.

    There are a couple of threads here in the Phil. nursing forum regarding whether or not local hospital experience is required or not I highly recommend patiently looking and reading them.

    Also, any future questions regarding how to apply to be able to sit for the NCLEX RN Exam and anything related to it should be asked in the International Forum. www.allnurses.com/forums/f75

    While in the Int'l forum I recommend reading Suzanne4's Primer and all other stickies in there and all stickies in here as well.

    Happy reading.

    just take NLE and get experience because the only way we/most filipinos can work to the US is by having an experience working as a nurse... and you can only do that by passing local exam... unless you hava a way of going to the US without it

    of course... also pass emglish exam and NCLEX.....

    No, it doesn't. That is why some don't take NLE anymore and just go directly and apply for eligibility to take the NCLEX and Visa Screening.

    Some, know of this also but wanted to practice 1st in the Phils. or to prove to themselves and to the others that they rightfully finished their course w/ the same knowledge as the others so they chose to take the NLE (also a sign of confidence that they can pass it)

    hehe sorry. i stand corrected.

    but is it applicable in all the state in the US? i have a friend who is also applying in ohio state and as far as i can remember the BON is requiring phil boards. hmm i have not yet opened the ohio state site tho coz i am enjoying reading the filipino threads here.

    phil license is not really required.. but if you have one, you have to disclose the information when you apply for license because if you dont, it is fraud. if you dont have a license, that's fine.

    OHIO needs CES full education course by course report. it is applied in CGFNS.. they dont require license in country of education.

    goodluck!
