    Was it June 07 or Jun 08 you applied. It is recommended as foreign nurses not to register with pearsonvue until you get eligibility from BON. Average processing times for BON is 4-6 months. I take it you have already got CES as Florida will not touch your application without it

    As a foreign nurse it takes usually a few months before you will get ATT, we don't recommend registering until you get eligibility. If trained in the US then you can register with pearsonvue when you put in your application as it doesn't take long but different when trained overseas. I would give it a bit longer. Did you do the cred eval before your application? Also have you sent in your English exam results?. This is what it says about Florida and foreign trained http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursing/nur_foreign.html

    Yes Maam,i send my credential's to Josef silny & asso..Then i get the result,saying it is equivalent to US degree..so then i submit my application to BON.

    I did'nt take english exam.Since,written there that philippines and some other country are not required any further proof of english competency when applying for the examination.Correct me if im wrong.

    Sil,Im RN back in the philippines(i live in florida now)and working there for almost 2 years.So I missed my work.I know im being impatientjust want to take the exam soon.Did a little review everyday and Planning to review suzzane tips...but first i need that ATT to join:wink2: Please help me to pray...il be able to sit on that exam and pass.

    I really appreciate your help:wink2:

    i feel your pain. i'm also waiting for california to issue my att since june 2008. i followed-up with the ca brn and they told me for foreign students it will take 12-20 weeks to process. maybe florida has roughly the same amount of test takers as california. so you may have to wait just as long.

    i really don't know what is worse....the waiting for the exam or the exam. when i took the local board it was definitely the waiting for the results. now itís the waiting to take the nclex. ok, so iím a little impatient. but everyday i hope that iíll be lucky enough to open my email and i hear i got my att.

    good luck to everyone!!

    not sure if you have written the nle, but ca is now requiring that before they will permit one to sit for the nclex-rn exam.

    Can still take a few months to go through the process with Florida even after getting cred val done. You are just going to have to wait a bit longer for ATT

    yes, i have taken the nle and passed it . thank you for asking. even though i am a us citizen, i did not want to be questioned years from now as to why i didnít take the local board exam. by taking and passing the exam i am insulated from future changes in state laws when it comes to license eligibility Ö hopefully.

    i saw the nle as a pre-test to the nclex. even though they are 2 different exams there should be some similarity at least in the fundamental nursing areas (medical and nursing practice questions). if anything it gave me a chance to channel my emotions and efforts for a national exam.

    Glad to hear that you wrote it, as CA now requires it before they will permit one to test. If a dual citizen, it is required now, and if not a dual citizen, it is now requiring special approval from them and they are wanting the exam written in most cases.

    Best of luck to you.
