Taking the NCLEX in Seoul...

  1. Has anyone else here taken the NCLEX in Seoul? I was thinking of taking the NCLEX there as an alternative, if I don't get a slot in HK or Saipan. I've been to Seoul once, but I went there on vacation, not for something like the NCLEX.

    Can anyone share their experiences? What was it like? Where would you recommend to stay (hotels, etc.)?

    Hey, Is there a visa for Seoul or is it like HK where you can fly anytime? I also want to take my NCLEX in Seoul or in Japan.

    If you're a Filipino citizen, you'll need a visa... But it's relatively easy to get a visa (my friends got their visas in less than a week when we went there for a week last February for a concert of this Korean artist). But I'm an American citizen, so I didn't need a visa.

    Singapore is not a test site. They do not offer the NCLEX exam there.

    You cannot apply for the NCLEX in Seoul. You will need to apply to a state in the US for licensure as an RN. You need permission from a state to be able to sit for the exam. The cost of the exam is $350 US to be taken at the testing site in Seoul.
