    that's a great news...

    :redlight: i hope there will be no bad entities out there to ruin the trust given by the NCSBN if it will really take effect... hope they will learn from the past issues/controversy...

    it will be a benefit to a majority of nurses since taking the exam in other countries is expensive...:icon_hug::smiley_aa

    goodluck to all test takers...:typing

    A very welcome development, imagine how many nurses will be delighted to hear such news. I know there are many well deserving Filipinos out there who can pass the exam easily but considering the expenses to take it abroad and with the present salary our professional are making, it would take them a year or so to apply for an exam.

    I wish they could have decided much earlier on. I have to spend hefty amount for my scheduled exam this March in HK.

    Lucky for those who will take advantage of this opportunity.

    I would not be so fast to take that as law what was posted in that article. There are no details included and they would have been if the actual announcement has been made, just as they have when other countries have been added. These same statements have been made in the past, if you remember last years meeting in Manila, the same statements were made and Manila was denied.

    Please wait until you see something come out from the Board that makes the decisions, and not from the Philippine newspapers. They have stated this too many times to count over the past few years and nothing has ever come from it.

    And IF a center is granted, it will not be immediate. Many things need to be put into place for that to happen.

    Forgot to add in: Look at all of the miscommunication that came out this summer over the Juen, 2006 NLE exam. It changed on a daily basis, and most was false hope that reporters came up with that caused much anguish for many here.

    If there will be anything, wait until you see it posted on the Pearson-Vue website, until it is there, it does not exist. Or from the Board that handles the NCLEX-RN exam. Do not go by what you read in the Manila papers, they are wrong way too often on anything going on with nurses.

    suzanne4 is right. not until pearsonvue comes out with its official proclamation, it does not exist! lock this thread!

    This is a welcome development for all filipino nurses. Let's just all be happy on this development and hoping that this announcement of the NCBN will put a stop on all previous speculations and demoralization. Congratulations to all the people responsible and made the effort to make Manila, Philippines as a new testing site for NCLEX. MABUHAY!:roll
