I am a U.S. citizen and I am currently taking up nursing in the Philippines. I will be graduating in April 2013.
I went to the website for the Texas BON and I read their requirements. However, it is still unclear to me whether I have to take the local board here in the Philippines before having to take the NCLEX in Texas.
I have no problem with taking the local board here in the Philippines, it's just I don't want to waste time studying for the local board when I could be studying for the NCLEX instead. And the local board is in July 2013.
Please let me know specifically and simply, if I have to take the local board for the Texas NCLEX and give me your thoughts on how I should handle this situation.
Thanks in advance for your help, input, and advise.
Have a blessed day.
How long did you process your application in Texas?
How much did you pay for the Eres?
