I checked and it was a bit vague for me. Looking at their application process, it states:
"II. Education and English proficiency requirements
1. To meet the Board’s educational requirements for certification, you must be a graduate of:
a senior secondary school education (high school) that is separate from nursing education; and
a government-approved, general nursing program that provided theory and clinical education which, in theopinion of the Board, maintains standards substantially the same as those required for approval of aregistered nursing education program in Massachusetts and which program is approved by the nursingboard or corresponding body in the jurisdiction where the program is located.
Registered Nurse (RN): You must be educated and hold licensure in good standing as a “first-level,general” nurse (International Council of Nurses).
Practical Nurse (PN): You must be educated and hold licensure in good standing as a “second-level,general” nurse (International Council of Nurses).2. Graduates of a nursing education program whose language of language of nursing education (classroominstruction, course textbooks, and clinical practice) was not English must demonstrate English proficiency beforewriting the NCLEX."
But nothing when I read their statutes and regulations regarding licensure from other countries. I wonder if anybody has tried applying for MA BON. I guess I could call them in the morning, I'm just really worried. I think I'm running out of options after being denied by CBON.
