Nclex (endorse) Reciprocate..which state?

  1. 0 I passed nclex California and it is already expired last February2012. I'm planning to endorse my license: NEW YORK, ILLINOIS, OREGON OR TEXAS

    which state do you think it is easier and cheaper to endorse?

    thank you so much!

    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]http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...me-760249.html 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.

    --In YOUR case, you already possess a CA license, but ASSUMING you have a valid SSN to effectively get your CA license endorsed. You don't have a CA license per se if you don't have the actual license in hand is my understanding.

    -- 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

    If you have a license to endorse then look at the BON websites and see what is required and fees will also be mentioned. i suspect you will have to go through CGFNS for either CES or CVS depending on state. If you do not have a license to endorse because you have no US SSN then look at requirements for license by exam and then arrange for CA to forward nclex results. There is no difference between reciprocate and endorse

    You can always look on the CA BoN's verification/license search site to see if you are active or what-not: Board of Registered Nursing

    CA have stated NCLEX results are safe but application expires. The only way to know is speak to the Texas BON or sumbit application and they assess based on your application. Because you haven't a license to endorse generally you have to apply as License by application and arrange for a small fee for CA to forward NCLEX results to new BON

    You need to contact TX BoN with your query. But it seems pretty clear: (source: http://www.bon.texas.gov/olv/pdfs/rnend.pdf)

    Requirements for licensure in the State of Texas
    1. Graduation from an approved school of professional nursing (general), of at least two academic years in length which includes theoretical and clinical instructions in medical nursing, surgical nursing, obstetric nursing,psychiatric nursing and nursing of children.
    2. A satisfactory score in one of the following examinations:
    State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE) - with a minimum score of 350; or,
    National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN)
    3. Licensure from another jurisdiction which has requirements equivalent to Texas.
    4. Must have been employed as a registered nurse or have taken and passed the appropriate RN examination during the past four (4) years.
    STOP: If you DO NOT MEET (1) through (4) of the above requirements, then you are NOT ELIGIBLE FOR LICENSURE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.
