    That's good news!

    But could you elaborate a bit more if you can? I am confused because you mention "2 years".

    -- Is she enrolled in the complete nursing program or able to just take those needed courses?

    -- Was this of recent enrollment?

    -- The approx. cost to attend?

    Thanks again!
    its a BSN program in Sacramento State University in California. 2yrs meaning after being accepted into the program they must go though a 2yrs of nursing, the previous 2yrs is all general ed and pre-reqs, so a total of 4yrs. she stated Jan2011. cost is between $8-10k USD. they only accept 40 students per sem, so there is a weeding out process to bring in students. either by lottery or GPA.

    Do you plan to stay and work in NM? They just recently implemented a brand new requirement (Oct. 13, 2012) that you must state (declare) that you will stay there for several years or they will reject the application.

    Not sure how, but I think if you plan to leave the State after getting your license, they could revoke it as NM has caught on that they don't like "being used" as a State to get a license then have their new licensee move the license.

    There's another posting on this subject here if you look around. Good luck!

    I dnt know about that new requirement. But if thats true if you have no plans moving to nm better to apply in other states.

    In some States, yes, they do require that one has the local PH license. But the bottom line to your question is what State do you want to work and practice and raise a family in, where do you want to plant your roots, etc? That's the real key as to which State to apply into.

    It makes absolutely zero sense to find the fastest, cheapest and the easiest then try to endorse (transfer) that state's license into the State you really wanted as one MUST still PASS that desired State's BON requirements in the first place.

    Why spin in circles when you need to end up doing whatever one was suppose to do by going back to square one? You just end up spending much more $$$$ for double registration fees and a big waste of time hoping and praying you do get to transfer the license from "an easy State".

    It doesn't matter if you're in the States, the Phils, the moon, under the ocean, taking the NCLEX is the same as drinking a bottle of Coke Cola or eating a MacDonald's hamburger, it's ALL the same! It's a matter of passing the desired State's BON requirements!

    Hi, are you already enrolled? And where? How much $$$ are you talking about?
    That didn't work out. Will probably have to try again maybe next semester to enroll. I'll just apply for an LVN license in the meantime. Have you tried other schools?
