PRC (NLE) form and NCLEX form - Dual Citizenship Problem
- 0Aug 23, '12 by strivnSN2Hi everyone! First, I wanted you to know that I'm so happy that you have this site running and kept it free for us to register. Thank you very much for that. I'm new to this site and I have read some of the posts but I couldn't find the same topic as what I have in mind and have trouble with.
Here’s my dilemma: I have dual citizenship and I'm currently a 4th yr. nursing student here in the Philippines. I'm worried about what to put on my application for licensure when it comes to "Citizenship".
1st question: Should I write: Filipino? American? or Dual or Fil-Am? (on the PRC application form)
But when I registered for the college, I wrote: "Filipino" in the "Nationality" section since I’m naturally born here in the Philippines. They also didn't ask for Citizenship so I figured I’m better off putting “Filipino” only.
2nd question: Did I make a mistake by doing that? Should I get it corrected into putting “Fil-Am” or “Dual” on my school registration because it will soon reflect on my transcript?
3rd question: Does it really matter what I put in "Nationality" or "Citizenship" when applying for the local boards (NLE) and US board (NCLEX)?
4th question: Would there be any problems if I don't write “Dual” or “Fil-Am” on both the school registration(which eventually will be shown on the transcript) and on the PRC application form? Would I get denied for taking the NCLEX because on my transcript and PRC ID, it would show "Filipino" only as my nationality or citizenship?
5th question: What should I write for the NCLEX application form in the future?
6th question: If I wrote "Dual" or "Fil-Am", will the fees for both NLE and NCLEX be higher than having one citizenship - Filipino only or American only?
Maybe some of my questions seemed redundant, but I just don't know how to ask it without being so. Pls. help me out here...I’ve been straining myself with these questions and I'm really worried that if I continue to write "Filipino" only on both my school registration and on the PRC application for licensure and if ever I passed the NLE, I will have problems in applying for NCLEX because my Citizenship on both transcript and PRC ID is “Filipino” only even though I’m also naturalized American. I badly need your input or suggestions or comments on this. Pls. advise. Thank you in advance.
