    Impossible for it to be open then. They always announce where the center will be and when it will open. And the current posting about this on the Pearson-Vue website today states that they have no idea of the location or when it will open. And once they announce the actual opening, there is always about three months to make appts for a seat at that site.

    They never announce that they are opening a center, and then open the next day.

    Remember that this was something that was sprung on them, they did not have the normal time to prepare for opening a center there for this exam.
    It is not going to be immediate.

    For those of you that have the ATT already, do not count on this center to take your exam in.

    Will the NCLEX test site be operational in Manila? or it is just merely an approval ? March began and there is still no news!

    The center, if it actually opens, is to be in Manila. But the Pearson-Vue website still states that they have no idea when it will be operational.

    Meaning that if you have an ATT, do not plan on testing in Manila. Will be after most ATTs that are out there expire.

    "no schedule of implementation has been set."

    this is directly from their news release, on their website. any new information will be able to be found on the pearson-vue website. that should always be your source.

    no new information has been posted since 20 february 2007. opening of centers has always been posted about three months before it will actually open, so that appointments can be scheduled, and then another 90 days before it opens with a full roster. not one thing has been posted, so figure at least six months from now, if not longer. in the past with the other centers, pearson-vue had advanced notice of centers being needed. not this time.

    Pearson-vue has no set date as of yet. Earlier reports said it would be anywhere bet. 3-6 mos but most likely on the upper end of that range and when it does open expect a slew of nurses wanting to go in and even those who have tentative slots from other testing sites will try to re-sched to Manila.

    Those who has their ATT now shouldn't wait for the center to open unless of course they are willing to wait and fight over the slots.

    After NCLEX testing is available for Manila, HK will be the best alternative and the preferred site for those who are weary of possible security breaches and so forth. Expect some turbulence on the 1st months of opening of the test center and every one's eyes will be on it.

    We'll keep everyone updated as soon as there is new information.

    thanxs lawrence! in my case i'm still waiting for the eligibility from NY BON. my cvs had issued report last feb 19 and they receive the application form last feb 26. until now i'm still waiting for my eligibility befor i apply to pearson. i'm still hoping to take nclex here in manila but i'm doubting if i could take it smoothly here since as you said everyone will be watching on it and everyone would want to take it in here. so i guess it will be another stressor for me. and another thing, i only have 3 mos to take the nclex. thanxs again! God bless!

    Expect the Manila test center to be much harder to see an open slot than what is HK now plus the HK testing center would probably be less of a hassle to make an appointment w/ by the time the Manila test center opens but where to make your appointment is entirely up to you and when can you make an appointment w/in the validity of your ATT.

    Good luck.

    double purposes of waiting for nclex to be available in manila (1) i can schedule the exam here, less expenses; (2) hk by then will have more slots.

    There are no official news on where exactly will the testing center will be and such an announcement will be posted on Pearson-VUE's website and when that happens we will post it here at the Philippine sub-forum (www.allnurses.com/forums/f235) of www.allnurses.com.

    Where ever it may be though, it must be in a place w/ excellent security, accessibility and w/ lots of hotels/motels and apartments.
