Visa screening process
- 0Jul 10, '09 by donazeHi Everybody!
I am a BSN graduate in the Philippines and is currently here in California for a holiday.
I just want to say I enjoyed reading this forum and was able to get insights on nclex exam.
1.) I took my nclex last july 1, 2009 here in Ontario California, and still waiting for the result. I got 75 questions. I tried pearson vue trick, it says your record already exist in our system. Is this a good sign?
2.) If ever I passed nclex, I would apply for visa screening. Do I need to take toefl or Ielts? Which one is better?
3.) Do I need a local board license from the Philippines to have a visa screening?

There you will find that Suzanne has posted some stickys at the top and there is a lot of information that you will find useful there. From what I've read regarding the pearsonvue trick it seems that it worked for 99% of the people.

The demand outweighs the amount allocated and many have been waiting many years and still waiting to move to the US. You can not change your status whilst in the US to stay and workwhat is retrogression?
