Hi lost122Congratulations on passing the Nclex pn, by the way, are you a graduate from Kennedy global school? I'm thinking of enrolling next month, how was your experience with this school? Would you recommend it to somebody? I'm a Filipino, dual citizen, I would appreciate any inputs, please help....thanks
Be advised if you wish to be licensed as a practical nurse in NJ you will no longer be able to if you attend a practical nursing program in the Philippines (such as Kennedy Global) as per the NJBON ruling from earlier this year (March 2012: http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/nursin...min_030212.pdf
"Philippines LPN Schools – nursing programs in the Philippines are not approved by the Board in that country, but instead by the Dept of Education.
A discussion ensued regarding the acceptance of the applications from applicants who completed their education in the Philippines.
After discussion, the Board upon a motion made by Connie Wilson and duly seconded by Theresa Beck voted that the Board does not recognize schools of nursing if they are not approved by Boards of Nursing or an entity that is equivalent. The motion carried.
Since Kennedy Global (nor is practical nursing as a profession) is not recognized by the PRC/board of nursing equivalent in the Philippines this educational program is not recognized by NJBON. Kennedy Global is not accredited by the NLNAC (they are a member of the NLN but that has no bearing on their accreditation) and are only accredited by TESDA which is an educational accreditation not a professional or practical nursing education.
