So I'm a U.S. citizen and my parents sent me here to the Philippines to study nursing. I was born here and have family here, but I grew up in the states and naturally became a citizen. I've got one more month left of college and I'm trying to get all my requirements in order so that I can take the NCLEX-RN back in the states. My home state is California, but I hear a lot of bad things when it comes to applying to take the NCLEX for that state at least. I hear the board keeps sending additional requirement after requirement to foreign grad applicants like me, or that it takes forever for them to respond and when they do, there's something lacking in their requirements.
My question is, what are ALL of those requirements that I need to submit to the picky board of nursing in order for me to take the NCLEX as soon as possible, before all the freshly learned knowledge deteriorates.
My school is I.S.O. certified. I'm not sure of the relevance myself, but according to my professors, it means that it's internationally certified.
If you can't give me the answer, then at least, can anyone answer which state I can apply in that doesn't have as many requirements as Cali does??? Thanks!
