    Lawrencencandy yes I graduated here and im still here in the PI. I applied in Northern Mariana Island, but will be working in Florida if i passed this May. Where you from? Filipino too?
    When did u graduate? My cousin is there right now in PI Tarlac she's graduating next month, she's US citizen. I'm just worried that she might get denied, I see a lot of threads here that lot of Filipinos got rejected. She took all the courses and they're concurrent to her clinicals

    I graduated 2011. My friends told me that its difficult to be accepted in some states especially i graduated here in PI, they said they will really check my papers to make sure that i am qualified, so they adviced me to apply in NMI instead. But if i pass on May, i'll transfer in Florida state. I think the best thing to do is try to comply in all their requirements, if she finished all the nursing subjects she will be accepted.

    IF the state of FL is where you prefer to start work and practice, you will still need to pass all of the FL requirements even with any out of state license.

    Thank you for the information. Thats what they told me, my co nurses from Phil are already in Florida working. We all applied in NMI, they passed the exam and passed all the requirements of FLorida BON. Based on their experienced they didnt have problem transfering from NMI to Florida. They said thats the easy thing to do especially we graduated in the Philippines.

    Maybe your co nurses got their endorsement prior to the NEW regulation and requirements of Oct. 2012, NM can now deny and reject any and all applications if they don't like what they see or read about in your application.

    Click this link hereabout the new NM : http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...rn-791505.html

    In particular is this new regulation:

    Rules hearing being held Oct 13,2012 to add the following #6 language:.
    (6) The board shall not approve an application for a license until the applicant provides the following information:
    (a) demographics, including race, ethnicity and primary and other languages spoken;
    (b) practice status, including but not limited to: active practices in New Mexico and other locations; practice type, practice settings, such as hospital, clinic or other clinical settings;
    (c) education, training and primary and secondary specialties;
    (d) average hours worked per week and the average number of weeks worked per year in the licensed profession;
    (e) percentage of practice engaged in direct patient care and in other activities, such as teaching, research and administration in the licensed profession;
    (f) practice plans for the next five years, including retiring from the health care profession, moving out of state or changing health care work hours.





    Did you have to fill out any new informational sheet or forms? Let us know, as there will be other kababayans following these new rules and see how things turn out, good luck to you!

    Please keep us posted on obtaining the NM license and endorsing over to FL. Thanks!

    hi guys, anyone who took the nclex-pn here? i'm planning on applying for that exam since nclex-rn in california is way way impossible for me. I'm a bsn graduate batch 2012 from philippines and just moved here in california this march. If anyone took nclex-pn, please reply and just wanna know if I still need additional courses before I apply for nclex-pn or which method should I use? Method 2 or Method 3? Thanks in advance.

    you dont need to take additional courses to sit for nclex-pn kabayan..just use method 3...read the one I posted below..

    from:Mar 17, '12 by RN_Mariemost of the applicants here are applying for a vn license using method 3 (click for application)

    i am a lvn and the bvnpt is more rigorous than the cabon (i also have my rn license and dealing with them is way easier than the bvnpt). based on the boards website, make sure you have the following before applying for the boards (they generally take 3-4 weeks to process each application).

    method #3: completion of equivalent education and experience.

    • pharmacology - 54 hours
    • paid bedside nursing experience - 51 months
    • verification of skill proficiency.

    forms 55a - 2 & 55a - 3 (pages 1 & 2) must be filled out by your school. you must show that:

    1,530 total hours: theory - *576 hours; clinical - 954 hours
    *includes pharmacology - 54 hours

    if you do not have a ssn, they cannot issue a license.

    no paid bedside nursing if you dont have any hospital experience..

    Thank you so much proudpinay for the reply, you really helped me a lot to understand what will I do for the nclex-pn. Just want to ask if you filled-up the part wherein they're asking if you are a registered nurse to other country? If so, did you wrote down your local PRC license? Just wanna know if I will write down my license info in the application because from the other topics that I read that he/she is asking to give his/her local license to the BVNPT? Have you encountered that? I don't want to surrender my local PRC license if that so... Thank you in advance for answering my inquiry.
