    It's required. I also thought that being a us citizen and going to school here from elementary - high school would would disregard the exam but it doesn't. I have my exam this upcoming June for the TOEFL. Currently waiting for my papers.

So between TOEFL,IELTS and Pearson english exam which one is the most recommended to take?

    The full text is:

    "2. **Validation of English Language Proficiency If you have graduated from a nursing program in a country or territory where the principle language is
    English, i.e. Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada (except Quebec), Ireland, Trinidad,
    Tobago, South Africa, Ghana, Jamaica, Barbados, or United States/territory, you are NOT required to
    validate your English language proficiency skills to obtain a license in Nevada.


    If the principal language of the country where you completed your nursing program is a language other
    than English, you are required to take and pass any ONE of the following options. You are required to
    complete an English proficiency exam regardless of your country of citizenship or language of
    instruction. "

    Officially speaking, the Philippines has TWO official languages according to the Philippine government: Tagalog and English.
    It can be argued that English is a principle language of the Philippines especially considering the large volume of English education that is incorporated in the basic levels of education.

    THE 1987 CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES
    Article XIV, Section 7 reads: "For purposes of communication and instruction, the official languages of the
    Philippines are Filipino and, until otherwise provided by law, English."

    Therefore, I would encourage discussing this matter with Nevada Nursing Board a bit further.

    Regardless; English proficiency is needed for VisaScreen certification, so you're gonna have to do it sooner or later anyway for most visa categories. Though in all honesty the proficiency exam results will expire before you complete the visa process anyway. :/

    I agree with you Hushdawg! i'm planning to take one of those English exams that they are requiring for Nevada licensure. I'm just not decided yet if i'm gonna take TOEFL/IELTS... I did some research and i found out that Toefl is more on american english and Ielts is british english... and if you have good command in English and too lazy to review for the exam, one should go for the Toefl...

    I've called the Nevada Nursing Board and it is still required because I still graduated outside the US. I asked if it mattered if English was used during our lectures and the representative said No it doesn't matter, we still need to take the TOEFL. I tried. haha.

    Hey Simsimi,

    well i'm not sure on what I would recommend because both exams have their easy part and hard part. I'm taking TOEFL because I already paid for it. haha. I've tried some of the practice tests and it's not that difficult. It's just that you need to read carefully, and fast during the reading portion. In the Listening you just have to pay attention to the scenario that is happening. You can write down notes if you want. I forgot about the speaking part. In the writing part you have to answer a certain question and you should support your answer. You should check it out. Just search up TOEFL practice tests.

    Hi,
    I know of someone who told me that it took her around 6 months to become eligible for the exam.

    Oh I have a question, does anyone know how long should you put off taking the exam after your graduation in Nevada or Washington State? All of these requirements are taking so much time.
