somebody sent me a msg and suggested about taking nclex in Ca but i couldnt reply coz im new in this site and it says i cant send any private msg unless im getting on here for awhile now, but im not. but anyway, i was gonna say that somebody once told me before that i can just take NCLEX from another state, idk if im right but i think i remember its either georgia or New Mexico, coz the requirements arent as much, and not as comlicated as here in texas. and then if i pass, she said something about, (idk if i still remember it ryt, reciprocate?) it is a process to have my license usable here in the state of texas.
Boy, whoever told you to take the NCLEX in CA is way off base, sorry.
Like Silverdragon mentioned, CA is not the state to even try. Just read all the sad stuff from just about every PH grads getting denied left and right, one reported within a week's time of their application.
Even if you pass the NCLEX and have an out-of-state RN license in your pocket/purse, it will not be any good to get it endorsed into CA to start work. CA will request and review your educational background and paperwork and it will probably not meet their concurrency requirements. So then you're back to square 1, of ever trying to practice in CA, denied.
That's the harsh reality for us PH grads today and probably in the near and future history.
