    Ok guys, I'm required to take the medical surgical in Nevada with clinicals and theory. I'm not sure of what I should feel but now I can move on with my application. I'm either applying to AK or MI since my family and friends are there and since I kinda made a plan in AK already. haha.

    Just like other applicants I was required to take Medsurg2 but not the physical assessment. I'm not sure of why I was required to take it but I'm guessing it was because my Long Term Care had a (-) on the hours and theories. I'm not sure if it was because of that, but I know that some students, unfortunately for me being one of them, are not exposed to ltc clinicals.

    Also if you do not have a license and did apply for the nclex within this year you are safe from the requirement. Just as long that your application was processed before 2013. Oh geez. Well back to filling up applications again.
    Oh NO, so sorry to hear that this is happening to you too! Wow, best of luck in applying elsewhere and hope it all works out for you in the end.

    It was kind of expected, I'm sure, but now it's time to move on.

    It will be a very rough and tough road for all of us IEN's, but we can endure, the path will just be a lot longer. Good luck!

    it's alright. yeah it was expected since a lot of IEN's were being denied as well. It's still a bit vague of why they are requiring me to take up medsurg 2 again. Is it intended for every applicant? I'm just confused. I tried to contact a school in Ca that would accept IENs with similar situation and their coordinator even said the BRN isn't really concise as to what they want IENs to enroll. Their giving both students and school a hard time. I'll come back to this thread again for more updates on my requirements and my application on the other states. Best of luck to all of us!

    Just passed the Illinois NCLEX-RN. Awaiting the paper license.

    I didn't encounter any problem while applying for it. It was actually pretty fast. Got my AT&T 1 day after I register.

    Graduated with a BSN from the Philippines.

    hey Koai, From what I read from the CGFNS CES that if we want to send our report to another recipient we must go through the re-evaluation service which is 250 dollars. It's so expensive.. you can contact me on my fb which im always on. hehe. been talking to other IEN's as well there. I'll PM you my link.

    I have a question. Since you applied.in Hawaii did you purchase the re-evaluation ces report for cgfns? The problem is I can't find the option for reevaluation in the purchase section. Do I have to click on the ces report again?

    No problem, Kuyafern!

    Don't give up! We've worked hard for so long to give up now.

    So, have you looked at how much it might cost if you'd take up the recommended courses (the Med Surg deficiency)?

    I also read somewhere that some RN graduates from the Philippines apply for NCLEX-PN first (just so they can work immediately). I wonder if that would make any difference with the application.

    I've spoken to someone who had a friend enroll in a private school with clinical and theories for OB and it costs 15,000 dollars.

    Thanks for the boost of confidence.

    hello yamkins.. congratulations for passing the NCLEX-RN

    would just like to ask you regarding how you applied in Illinois?
    i knw that I need to process documents through CGFNS through their CES service..
    do they require a local license in the Philippines? how long would it take to complete CES service?

    i just graduated this year.. and i was also able to take the philippine nle.. and pass.. but i havent got my license since i went here directly after i took the exams..

    is there any way i could process my documents to illinois without having a local license?
    i wish to be a RN there in Illinois since my relatives have a home health agency business over there.

    and also, i already applied for CA and waiting for their ineligibility. ;c

    kuya fern,,

    Yep, you need to place an order for CES report again., I was about to make a payment for the re evaluation service but it seems that there's something that i must confirm with cgfns, since in the application form in Hawaii, there's a section where the CGFNS id is being asked so the boards can open and check my report online. i'm so confused.
