    Can you scan it for all to see? Just delete or black-out any names, reference numbers or any information that reveals things the public doesn't need to see for your safety.

    Or maybe provide a link to click to? I think this declaration form comes after a review of your submitted transcripts and application and may not be a regular form on the BVNPT site?

    6)PRC is the agency that regulates our nursing practice in the Phil.just check for the address.
    7)CHED is the one who oversees our colleges and universities .

    clarification on #6 - how come when we called BVN they said we should put CHED or TESDA it depends which school you attended, if you attended to a universities/college put CHED but it you attended vocational school put TESDA and they said #7 put same thing as #6.

    @shawie...if BVNPT told you what to answer on #6,7 maybe all we need is to follow them.but from what I know it's really PRC that oversee our practice as a a nurse.I think it's for those who are license in our country(RN) because if you looked at the end part of the question #6 it says nursing education license and in #7 nursing education only.

    I was at a friend's BBQ party this weekend, I met someone there who was of PH descent, but educated in CA. She got her LVN license almost a year ago and still looking for a nursing job, she said it's very rough. Many of the hospitals or nursing facilities hired from within, that is to say, many that did their clinical rotations at a particular place was usually hired in, they are called "internals".

    She wasn't picked from a field of 18, only 3 openings.

    Anyways, I asked her about this "declaration". She says everyone has to fill it out, it's to verify that what you claim on the document is the absolute truth or if the BVNPT finds out at any point, that one was dishonest in their answers, they could take away the license at any time or not issue the license at the start.

    There are some schools in CA that offered classes on-line or was taken at another location, meaning that there is a chance that they took a course in one city and may or may not have taken the clinical part not associated with the school. There are some schools that don't make the BVNPT standards and so if it's listed in the declaration, they will contact the hospital to verify that one actually did their clinicals there.

    They will also use any information provided to make sure that it matches up with what your transcripts say. So we need to be real accurate or it can cause a application delay or denied.

    She says that she thinks the BVNPT added more sections about the governmental agencies to filter out the international applicants. It's not only because of the PH ones, but she says there are so many grads coming in from China, India, Nigeria, Mexico, Russia and the UK. Many of the applicants are also trying to submit false documentation so the declaration is needed to be used a written proof if there's any problems to not grant or to not renew a LVN license. That's what is stated if you're signing the declaration.

    She has a cousin who went to school in PH and got her BSN and been hearing all the horror stories of the CA BON mass declinations of the nursing applications. She had plans to attend a top PH school to get her BSN, but knows now it's not worth the expenses and time to get it. I told her no matter how hard or expensive it is to get into a US school, don't bother thinking about trying to get into a PH nursing program, it will only bring nothing but heart ache and major disappointment, if she plans to be an RN in CA.
