Just Migrated In The U.S And Don't Know Where To Start

  1. 0 Hi. I just moved here in Virginia. I'm from the Philippines and graduated BSN In 2010. However I'm not a registered nurse yet. I'm looking for information on how i can apply for NCLEX-RN. I also want to take a refresher course since I graduated almost 3 years ago and had worked in a different field. Do u know any schools/institutions that offer refresher courses? I really want to take a refresher course to prepare for the board exam. I hope everyone can help me with this. Looking forward with your replies I've been researching a lot however I also want to learn from people who had a similar experience as mine. Thank You

    Starting point would be looking at the state BON and see what requirements they have for International Educated Nurse. Links can be found at the bottom of the page.

    Thank You For The Quick Reply. I Sent An Email To Virginia BON And They Asked Me To Contact CGFNS. They Also Require English Proficiency Exam Which I Guess Is The TOEFL. Am I Right? But Before I Apply For Taking The Exam, I Want To Prepare Myself By Enrolling To Refresher Courses Or Going To A Review Center. Does CGFNS Offers Refresher Courses Or Recommend Review Centers? Or Do U Have A Recommendation Yourself?

    Some refresher courses will not accept you unless you have a RN license. CGFNS do not offer courses like this

    That's A Bum I Guess I'll Rely On Self-Review. Or Free Online Classes. Do U Know Any Resources Or Websites?
