    Since this board is based in the US, there may not be that many people that know the answer to your question, unless someone from Japan and the other questions you mentioned happens to see this post.

    Your best bet would be to ask in the International Forum. At the top of this page there is a header that reads "Forums", click on that. In the middle of the drop down menu there's a header called "Nursing Discussions by Geographical Location" and click on it. The fifty U.S. states will appear, but at the bottom of the page you will see the International Discussions. Find a country that you are looking for or go into International Discussion. I didn't see one for Japan, but maybe someone will know in that forum.

    Also, welcome to allnurses.com! Best of luck to you. I hope you find what you are looking for.

    You may read Suzanne's "Primer" on top for starters. It will answer most of your questions.

    To start you off. You do not apply for NCLEX per se or to any countries.

    An applicant applies to a State Board of Nursing, such as CA Board of Registered Nursing, Vermont BON, New Mexico BON, etc.. to be able to sit for the NCLEX and each State has it's own set of requirements and policies.

    Some State BON let's you sit for the NCLEX w/o going through CGFNS while some will require it.

    Time-frame to process your application will also depend on w/c state you choose.

    You may contact your respective State BON and ask them directly regarding your case.

    If you didn't take the NLE last June '06 there should be no issue at all and you can apply w/o a license and would just have to explain why you don't have one.

    However, if you took it and did not passed there might be an issue and since each State BON has it's own requirements and policies the best way would ask your respective State BON about your case.

    The decision of the Court of Appeals already came out and this might
    affect any pending decisions each State BON has or may change their current policy.

    And who knows you might also be one of those (1,+++ graduates) who originally passed but were relegated to a "fail" after the "unusual" re-computation of the PRC. These students will now be re-instated and allowed to take the oath according to the Court of Appeals.

    The PRC Chairperson said that they will publish (here we go again) the names of those who will re-take and those who they "failed" but originally passed prior to the re-computation (they are now regarded as to have truly passed).

    You may go to the Philippine forum for Philippine related issues:

    Yes, you can endorse to any state but may we ask why go through Saipan first (hope you don't mind) and why not just apply directly to the State where you want to live and work?

    I also have a reply on your other post.

    Where do you intend to work and live?

    NM and VT are fast too accdg. to many members here that have done so.

    However, if you add in the time of the endorsement process together w/ the "fast" processing you may end up w/ the same time-frame and maybe even longer plus most often times the endorsement fee is actually more expensive than the actual fee of applying directly. Of course, there are few exeptions (depending on your state where you really intend to work and live).

    But to answer your question, yes, you may wait here while it is being endorsed and you may use the proof of passing NCLEX from whatever state to start the petition process.

    Just want to clarify that if endorsing to NY you still have to undergo the CVS whether or not you already passed the NCLEX or get licensed in VT. Of course, if your goal is to pass NCLEX ASAP and then start the petition process via Consular Processing ASAP as well then you may do that.

    Just making sure you're weighing the pros and cons of things. :wink2:
