    foreign or not....you have passed your u.s. nclex exam! good for you!!! it doesn't matter if you are a foreigner or not. if you have received your license from one of the compact states the process will be smoother to go from one state to another. just start applying to the programs!!!

    wish you luck...competition is fierce!!!

    No. You have to pass the NCLEX to practice in the US. The hospitals will not even consider you if you have not passed it.

    Can anyone please tell me that how does the residency program look like? I mean how many hours per week? are all the hours in the mornings or it includes some night duties too?

    I am one semester away from graduating. After that I will take state boards some where in August. Can you get residency before passing the NCLEX?

    I would appreciate any input.....thanks!
