The local PH license is required: http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-con...nformation.pdf
Item #3 (it was recently revised and stands as is)
Whether or not you're an American citizen, dual-c or foreigner, if your actual final BSN degree is from an international location, NV will need to see if you're truly a nurse from that country. This is a way to also verify with that country's own nursing board, if the license and the numbers is legit and valid, as transcripts can still be easily forged.
As mentioned some states do require the local country's license and if from the Phils, if you're a USC or dual-citizen, you are exempt BUT you can take the local PH exam and it's to your benefit in the long run! I know of several USC who have the local PH license.
Some state's BON evaluator may buy your story of unable to take the local country exam and let it go, but some may not, it's a case by case basis. If they believe your story, then consider yourself very lucky, as I've heard from other batchmates and their friends, that's not the case any more.
Again, it's YOUR problem, not any State's BON problem, as you're dealing with different set of rules and laws and policies if you don't hold a local country nursing license, regardless of your citizenship.
