    Here's a recent thread if you follow towards the last few pages:

    http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...ul-769927.html

    HI for the time being is one of the "fastest and easiest" State and since you mentioned you're going to plant your roots there, you should be okay. Word of caution, like the other States, they could change their requirements any time, any day.

    Not sure about the NCLEX exam taking limitation, you're best to simply contact the HI BON directly to get a straight answer. But do report back on what you find out!

    Good luck!

    Hi, so far i havent heard of anybody who got denied from Hawaii BRN...there are many foreign grads now that gettig denied by cali BRN especially with their case or hours... If you have completed the CES from CGFNS you might wanna try to apply in hawaii its only $40..which is good for 2years ....meaning you dont have to keep payng them for reappction if you failed the nclex exam but still have to wait for 45 days to retake your exam.

    Hmmmm... All nclex questions are the same no matter which state yo take it. Itwill really depend on the takers itself but i can tell you now that majority those who applied for hawaii always got their papers approve.. Hawaii depends on th ces report for evaluation.. If they dont see any problem with the ces chance are good..

    i believe most states except Cali requires like CGFN for the CES or IELTS, or sometimes the TOEFL..if you were denied in california, you next best bet is either TExas or Hawaii...both states ONLY require CES and hawaii's application is only $40 texas is around $140...if you hve processed your CES and everything is OK then i would suggest take Hawaii because they're not that hard when it comes to eligibility, they'll send you the letter one week after receiving the report from CES
    Hi, TorpengRN, I recently applied to Cali Board of Nursing but unfortunately got denied due to concurrency issue. Im interested in applying to Texas but I read that there's a jurisprudence exam and if you graduated more than two years without experience you have to attend a refresher course? Is it true? i really want to know more infos regarding applying to Texas. If you could only help me I will really appreciate. Thanks 😊

    Yes, many several have and some even reported getting their first RN job there. So far, it seems that's the only state whereby recent NCLEX-RN passers have been getting good luck and these are not clinical or dialysis center jobs, but hospital jobs (don't most Phils prefer that?).

    Look under the step-by-step instructions thread for the TX requirements and you'll see it's there.

    The question do you wish to work and practice in TX as soon as you pass the NCLEX-RN like they did or plan to endorse (and to where and why)?

    Yes, there are two more "frequent" posters, troikaenerio and FlamingWallFlower, who have commented that they both are now working as RN's in TX (I think both have either no paid hospital experience and or just had some volunteer time in the Phils hospital. There have been a couple of other PH posters (not so frequent) who reported they too are employed in a TX hospital in a new grad position or maybe as a RN1 job.

    I think one is in suburb of TX but not sure of the others, I'm thinking probably in the rural areas where US grads may not want to work in for whatever reasons. Maybe these posters can chime in if they see this and can update themselves.
