Feb 19, '13Quote from dragon_ladyHi dragon lady, im on the process of applying for nclex-LVN and i found this thread really helpful because i received the declaration of nursing form too. just want to clarify something regarding the date completed? is it until the last day of ncm 101 semester ends? Is that what you mean? How about ncm 102 and 103? You had your clinicals on those semesters too right? Thanks in advance.Just put the hospital name,director of nursing or the chief nurse,or the clinical instructor,address of the hospital,telephone and fax number, for the date started I just put the day I started my first clinicals of NCM 101 until the last day before semester ends.and for the hours worked,408 hours in all.BTW I did all my NCM 101 clinicals in 1 hospital so I didn't have problem with that,same as the rest.
Feb 21, '13Hello! Im just wondering after submitting the declaration of nursing education/experience do the BVNPT still asked for more documents from you or they will give you your eligibility letter? I already send my declaration form last Dec 18,2012 and according to the evaluator that i talked to on the phone theyre still working on those forms submitted during last week of october and first week of november. Im really anxious to know since ive been traumatized when the BON denied me to take the NCLEX RN..
Feb 21, '13In my own experience,after I send my declaration,they sent my eligibility letter.Good luck
Feb 22, '13Thank you @dragon_lady.. how long did it take before you received your eligibility letter? I have a friend when she send the declaration form BVNPT asked her for additional documents again, and that what scare me.. you know how BON asked for documents then in the end they declined you.. im still traumatize.. Thank you again
Feb 22, '13How long did you wait for them to mail you your eligibility letter? Because honest to God, i cannot focus on starting to review since im scared they will deny my application too..
Feb 22, '13From the time i sent my declaration of Nursing education,I've waited 2 months and a week before I got my eligibility letter.
Feb 23, '13Quote from dragon_ladyWhat did you used as a study material? I graduated 2011 and it feels like i need a review center as well as some books and cd to use as a review materials.. how long before you took your exam?From the time i sent my declaration of Nursing education,I've waited 2 months and a week before I got my eligibility letter.
Feb 23, '13I used Saunders 5th Ed,Kaplan on demand And PDA by La Charity.I studied for 2 months.Good luck
Feb 23, '13Quote from dragon_ladyThank you! When did you graduate? Did you consider going to a review center?I used Saunders 5th Ed,Kaplan on demand And PDA by La Charity.I studied for 2 months.Good luck
Feb 23, '13I graduated 2009 and never came up to get in a review center.I studied at home and sometimes in the library.
Feb 23, '13Quote from dragon_ladyNice! In your 2 months, how many hours a day do you usually do your review? I just wanna do everything to pass the test. Thank you for answering me back. And i heard that NCLEX RN will have a new format of exam starting April 2013.. tsk tskI graduated 2009 and never came up to get in a review center.I studied at home and sometimes in the library.
Feb 23, '13No problem.I did 200 questions,4 hours/day.Yes they will have changes in April 2013.How's your LVN application going?
Feb 24, '13Hello all, spoke with my friend at the LVN Board. They are SWAMPED with applicants from the RN Board as you can imagine. They didn't get extra people to help them so it is taking 4 months.
Declaration is to be completed by the applicant and not the school. People are sending them to their school and it's getting returned.
The Record of Nursing Program form is not available through the RN Board so when you request your transcripts from the RN Board, that form will NOT come with it. This form asks for different classes then the RN Board asks for. If an evaluator tells you that your school did not list enough hours, that means your director didn't list all your nursing hours and it doesn't qualify you. The Board realizes that your nursing program probably contained more so they are trying to help you to get the form submitted correctly with the correct hours instead of just denying you.
My friend also said to please please realize the LVN Board and the RN Board are two completely separate Boards and require their own forms. She said she's been getting an application page and a letter that says all other documents will be sent from the RN Board. I'm just curious why one would not think they didn't need to complete the Record of Conviction, photo and high school? The livescan she can understand as most don't understand that Boards can't share.
Just so you all know if you are denied by the RN Board or haven't applied there yet:
Application with fee
Record of Conviction
Record of Nursing Program form and transcript in the school sealed envelope (the transcript can come from the RN Board but the Record of Nursing Program form is unique to the LVN Board and the RN Board will not have it)
Livescan with the LVN code on it
Copy of your secondary diploma
Don't send regular mail and then call and ask them to go look through 1000 pieces of mail for your mail if you didn't send it certified. It's that same person who has to go looking through all that mail that you are complaining isn't getting your file done.
She also said they are working a lot of overtime and still severly backlogged.
