    I graduated from the Philippines in 2005. Migrated to US with a green card in 2006. I am now a US citizen. Failed Nclex-RN many times since 2006 and got frustrated and depressed. I last tested march of 2010; I had no problems with getting eligibility and ATT. Now I am married and just had my first baby. I want to retake the exam. I called CA BON 3weeks ago and to ask them if they still have my file; they asked for my SS# and found my file. They said I don't need to re-submit my requirements: I just need to pay the re examination fee and wait for eligibility; then ATT then pay pearsonvue to schedule an exam; just like normal process. Now I am reading these posts about being an IEN ... I honestly don't know what to think. Now I am scared to re apply for the exam because I don't want to waste my money on fees that cannot be refunded should problem arise. Advise please
    Hi have you decided what to do?

    Are you asking for yourself or for someone else?

    I thought you already received the CA ATT last year or ?? Did something happen in CA?

    Ahhh, okay, I see.....well, so far, as of this time, OR is the only far Western US state that's NOT enforcing the concurrency rules, but as we all know that could change at any time without notice.

    Have you e-mailed the OR BON with regards to the issue of applying without a valid SSN? Then the other issue is let's say one gets the OR ATT and passes WITHOUT a SSN, but will the BON issuee the actual license if there's still no SSN? There are a few posters from PH who passed the NM boards, but can't get the actual license until they provide the NM BON with a SSN.

    But back to OR, I'm sure other than the usual requirements of having one's transcripts evaluated and passing an English proficiency examination, she should be okay.

    I certainly wouldn't wait very long to apply into OR, changes are happening so fast. You blink and the opportunity is gone.

    Have you glanced at the OR BON application for international students?
