"only those states that have explicit education requirements of concurrent theory and practicum will philippine nurses have licensure issues.
excelsior college new york nursing graduates have had same issue recently. see state board licensure requirements here
these are states having concerns over concurrent theory and practicum, so i would look at other 37 states to obtain license:
once upon a time there was "automatic reciprocity" for board scores above of a certain level. that has been phased out. then some states got together and agreed to "approve" each other with similar requirements being called "compact states". california is not a compact state.
the nurse licensure compact authorizes licensed practical nurses and registered nurses licensed and residing in a compact
state to practice in other compact
states without the necessity of obtaining an additional license. the nurse licensure compact facilitates nursing practice among the compact states by requiring the nurse to maintain a license in his/her primary state of residence which grants “multi-state privilege” to practice in other compact
states. however, this privilege requires that the nurse practice according to the laws and regulations of each state in which the nurse practices or provides care (i.e., the state in which the patient is located at the time care is rendered), either physically or electronically.
california has recently increased/enforcing some new requirements for nursing licensure and it has become difficult for some new grads/nurses to obtain licensure in the state of california.....as well as the 12 other states that have concurrent clinical requirements. tis i believe is in response to some of the "newer" nursing schools that are online. this has effected some of the foreign nurses as well. i suggest you check the nevada board.
i hope that helps!
