Requirements to become a RN in Guam?

  1. 0
    Hi guys! I'm a US citizen but graduating BSN in the Philippines and I was just wondering what are the requirements for me to take the boards in Guam? How many OR/DR cases do they require there? I've tried to look for the requirements on the Guam's BON website but I only found the board of nurse examiners application.

    I would also like to know how many times a year do they hold the boards in guam and what months. I'm having trouble finding these information online..

    I do not know, but, it seems Guam has everyone fill in same application,(?)
    and down on page 9,
    you check that you are applying for licensure by endorsement??

    but, i'd contact the Guam board of nursing to be sure.

    OHhh, wait, you are not yet licensed? oh, i misunderstood. I'd contact the board of nursing in Guam, to see if you can boards in Guam, when you were educated in Phillipines,
    who knows, it *might* be easier to take the boards in Phillipines, and apply to get endorsed by Guam, but, i have NO idea, i am only wondering.

    You need to meet the requirements for Guam and then they will give permission to sit NCLEX.
