I am an international student from the Philippines but a US American citizen.
I have not taken the local board exam or IELTS/TOEFL.
Does anybody know what US State that does not require IELTS/TOEFL in order to apply for a NCLEX-RN?
Thank you for anyone who will give a reply.
Thanks allnurses.com =)

No reason so far. I just want to go straight on taking the NCLEX-RN. But if I found a state that does not require IELTS/TOEFL, then I will go for that state.
Since for now, FL is the one possible state you mentioned that you like to apply into, given you don't have a local PH license, as both CA and NV require them, as Silverdragon mentioned, then that's the state you will settle into for many years to work and play?
My reason for my comment is that as long as you don't plan to try to endorse (transfer) your FL license back into CA or NV, as you will still need to pass the particular State's same requirements that you don't want to have to go thru at this present time and then you just end up wasting more money (for application fees and other exam fees, all non-refundable expenses) and more time (to pass the English exam and waiting for results) and if you don't have a local PH license, by the time, you get your FL license, you're back to square one and getting denied (lack of a PH license).
