Hi @dragon_lady! just wanted to ask, how did you pass your official school transcripts? Did you pass it together with your LVN application or did you have your school sent it directly to BVNPT?
thanks in advance.
Hi there! I'm a Philippines educated nurse and registered nurse in the Philippines. I want to apply for licensure as a vocational nurse (LVN) in California. I'm confused with the part in Method 3 Equivalent education wherein I'll be sending my official school transcripts.
Shall I send my official school transcripts with my application or shall my school send it directly to the BVNPT?
Cause both of that shows in the BVNPT application packet thats why I'm confused on which I shall do.
Thanks in advance.
thanks for the reply @ mgmamas. What I understood with method 2 is that they meant schools that are in different states, got confused. I'm just worried that they might not accept my application since its been 6 years since I graduated from Nursing school.
Hi there, I'm planning to take the license exam for LVN in CA, planning to use Method 3 Education alone, but I graduated from my nursing degree in the Philippines 6 years ago. I was wondering if that would be ok? What do you suggest I do? Thanks in advance!
Hi there zhapper2002! I do admire what you have accomplished. I just wanted to ask a couple of questions. I wanted to apply for CA BRN licensure but it maybe a tough road ahead because of the concurrency issues so I'm considering to also apply for BVNPT licensure as well. How did you apply for BVNPT licensure, is it through equivalent education? Or experience or both? I do have an employment experience in the Philippines but I'm not sure if I could use the experience method because I've also worked previously in an arab country and my previous employer there definitely would refuse to fill up the employment verification form. I'm confused which method to use, if I do consider the experience method, the 2 year experience I had in that arab country will be useless because my employer there didn't even give me a COE, which could show as a work gap on my employment history. Hope you could help me.
Hi there! Philippines educated and registered nurse here planning to apply to California BON to sit for NCLEX. I checked their website and it says that I have to submit a copy of the license or diploma that allows you to practice professional nursing in the country where you were educated. I'm confused if I have to pass just a photocopy of my license or do I need the photocopy verified or red ribboned? I tried sending CA bon an email to inquire but sadly I haven't received any reply. What other requirements do I need to prepare? Advise and suggestions will be well appreciated. Thanks.
0Hi there. I am educated in Philippines and I plan on taking NCLEX-RN California. I'm in the process of getting my SSN. I would just like to ask what documents should I prepare to pass to Cali BON? Aside from my transcripts, will I need to pass a copy of my license in the Philippines? Do I need to have it certified and authenticated (Red Ribbon)? And will you advise me to take an English Examination test before applying or shall I wait for the BON to ask me to take it?
Thank you for the inputs in advance.
I need my RLE for work opportunities abroad. I was wondering on what I need to do for the authentication (red ribbon) of my RLE in DFA? Should I go to CHED or have it notarized and go straight to DFA?
Thank you in advance for those who will answer.

hello fellow nurses.I really need your help.I'm currently working here in saudi arabia As a DENTAL nurse.To tell you the truth im not happy with my work, coz i know its not a job of a nurse.But because the management of the hospital put me in this department i can't do anything.I've tried to submit a letter to be transfer in other department but they rejected it. Seriously i envy some of my fellow nurse's here in our hospital who work in special area.
Its really frustrating on my part.But i can't do anything i've been working as a dental nurse for almost 1 year and 4 months now.And have a 4 years contract here in this hospital ,
after 2 years i can have my vacation for one month and im planning not to come back here.
What to you think i should Do next year on my vacation? I'm planning not to come back here.But how it will affect my application to other hospital if they know that i didn't finish my current contract in other hospital.
I think one of the issues you may be seeing is that the DON must fit with the facility. Not all DON's would be great for all facilities. I agree with the previous post- 1st one was a keeper, second one probably had bad timing, and third may be overwhelmed. I think it is normal for a facility to through a few before finding the right one. There's a lot of dynamics between the Administrator and the DON and then the DON with other disciplines. It's hard to explain- fostering a work environment with so many different personalities is very difficult. The major duties for me as a DON in SNF-LTC is lots of QA and budgeting- reporting to corporate, making decisions that affect every thing down to the departments I dont even work in. I absolutely LOVE my job. I get to teach, train, learn, assist, talk with patients, families, and get things done. It is the most difficult thing I've ever done. Don't get me wrong, some times it's so difficult to make everyone happy and sometimes you can't- but the joy in being a DON is when you do bring about change and positive results. You can email me if you'd like @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to chat abotu some of the duties or have questions.
I just want to know if others do skin/allergy testing before doing a contrast study in CT scan even if a hypoallergenic/non-ionic contrast agent will be used?
my clinical instructor taught me about giving a small test dose thru IV, but I can't exactly recall it since we rarely do that esp. in the hospitals here. How many ml do I need for the test dose? and How can I assess if it is positive or not? will I check for redness and ask for er itchiness?
I'm a nurse from a Southeast Asian country, we do skin test on our patients before administering the antibiotic that was ordered to be given to them. I was wondering if this is also practiced in other countries? If not, how can you know if the patient is allergic on the medication that was ordered?
