    Moved to the Nurse Registration forum in World as things are slightly different when trained outside the US

    Where do you plan on working? if CT then I suggest you apply direct to CT BON as same requirements are generally required when trained outside the US for initial application and endorsing license from another state. Also be aware I believe there have been similar issues with Vermont as there are with CA and a few other states in regards cases not being current to theory

    Where do you want to live and work?

    Vermont BON International Nurses FAQ Besides the concurrency issue, they also state:

    As of May 15, 2012, the Vermont State Board of Nursing will no longer accept applications without a valid US Social Security Number. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Even if it is faster and easier there, you won't be able to work in CT with a VT license -- you'll still have to be licensed in CT in order to work there, and you'll still have to meet whatever requirements CT has for internationally educated nurses. You'll just be spending extra time and money. Unless you are talking about moving to VT??

    Hi! I'm also a Filipina RN and got my license in Vermont 2 months ago. Take a look at this site Nursing - Vermont Secretary of State - Office of Professional Regulation and you can read the information for international nurses there. You also have to get your CES first from CGFNS, and it might take a while because of the transcript, PRC registration, etc. because CGFNS requires it to come directly from the school/PRC. Just fill out the application form that can be downloaded in the Vemont BON website, send a check addressed to the Secretary of the State, and wait.

    Why don't you try to apply in CT? I think Vermont is getting strict now when it comes to applications...

    Where's the EASIEST, THE FASTEST, THE CHEAPEST STATE to get eligibility, to AVOID the different English reading and writing requirements, who doesn't need to have their curriculums reviewed and evaluated, etc....here's what I've been trying to tell you guys for months!

    Kabayans, you have to look at the "bigger picture".

    To everyone asking of the same question: just pick whatever state you wish to work in for the next 3-8 years or more. With the strong possibility, this State is where you will plant your roots and watch your babies grow from an infant till they go to college.

    -- First and foremost, you must now have a valid SSN to apply into CA and into most states and one day soon, ALL states will require a SSN and for future renewals. There are zero to a handful of hospital sponsorships in the whole country now, don't count on those, you will have better luck winning the lottery odds.

    -- It makes NO sense to get a license in one state, when you really WANT to work in another, as you need to still PASS that state's requirements you wanted to work in the FIRST place.

    -- You will be spending more MONEY by hopping around one state to another in extra fee$ and possible extra money for certain testing$ and wasting more months waiting and waiting, instead of looking for a job. Why pay double $$$ ??

    **** The FASTEST, the EASIEST, the CHEAPEST state to apply into is the State you feel you will put your roots down for many years, the MINUTE you pass the NCLEX! If that state doesn't meet their requirements AND your needs and desires (weather, salary, etc) now then move on and research and travel to that state if you can. ****

    -- Avoid the 14-15 states that are enforcing the concurrency now, The list of them are mentioned a few times on this forum. Here you go: [COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366]http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...me-760249.html[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] NV was recently enforcing it and it was mentioned NY was enforcing it, but not 100% on that State, but quite possible. Don't be surprised if FL and TX join the concurrency bandwagon one day, it's a very old requirement from years ago before most of us were born (25 plus years).

    -- Forget about trying to ENDORSE-TRANSFER any out-of-state license into CA or ANY of the current mentioned 14-15 other states that are enforcing the concurrency rules, it's NOT going to happen as again, you MUST submit the same college transcripts that already DENIED or will DENY the application, there's no way around to go around this! It doesn't matter if you have 2 years or more of US RN experience, my PH friend tried to endorse her FL into CA and was denied the licensure, citing the same concurrency issue. Same thing with our friend with her NY license, same bad fate.

    -- As you may know or should know, that jobs for us international students are becoming very hard and pretty difficult to get our foor thru the door, as many hospitals even many clinics are hiring their own students that did their clinical time in that hospital or hiring more of that local students or those from the same State. It's known as hiring the "internals". So getting approved and passing the NCLEX-RN is nothing, compared to finding the real thing......a nursing job.

    -- To find out what state you are interested in, the bottom of each page is the list of BON's and you can easily Google...STATE's name followed by "board of nursing"....BINGO! It's all there for the state's requirements, including every one of the Board's has a special ""INTERNATIONAL"" section.

    Good luck, everyone, we can do this, but allow a lot more time than originally planned, be prepared to work in a State you really don't want to be in for several years, take any kind of nursing job someone hires you for and smile

    CAVEAT: Even if one is working for 10 years or more after being a recent PH grad and possess a valid RN license, it's NOT by any means a guarantee of any kind that the States enforcing the concurrency rules will approve your license endorsement, as I'm repeating myself again, it will ALWAYS be based on your original educational background and transcripts. However, one never knows if a evaluator is being careless, one might get lucky, lol.
