    im from texas, and i dont have a philippine license. after i graduated, i went back to texas but i didnt take that route for getting texas license 'coz i knew i had to get cgns and texas board of nursing requires 2 years experience when you're a foreign graduate. instead, i applied for california license (the dont require local license), and i was approved and took nclex and got my california RN license. and then, i endorsed my license to texas and already have my texas license..

    congrats.. how long it will take to process the applications in CA?? what is your written explanation since that you are not an RN at PI.??

    CA has a longer process because alot are applying in that state, they thought its an easier and smoother route.

    When TEXAS issued you ur Temp License. Did you have to fullfil some requiremnts like CGFNS, Resending OFFICIAl transcripts from philippines to texas, or anything u can think of that was required to fullfilll your requirements and get a PERMENANT license.

    i can only think of LiveScaning again in texas...any more help would be great.

    Planning to get outta california. Its impossible to even land a Nursing Home Job wat more a Hospital.....imposible

    I took the exam recently this year, 2010. CA-nclex-rn exam. It was a written explanation.

    I migrated to US when I was 3 years old. Got Naturalized as a Citizen when i was 8 (thus default lost my Pinas-citizinship).....got my bsn in manila (never did dual citizen) ......prc wouldnt let me sit in for local nle because i only had US passport (no longer pinoy citizen even tho im born in pinas)

    To that effect.........and the CA BON accepted the letter and issued me an approval to take ...........

    I'm going to write the same explanation to all these other states here in america. Hoping to get exempted as well with strict requirements. Anybody in my shoes? same experiences? please share.....def. nid some tips.

    Thanks shiela but everytime i call a BON-office the one's who answer the phone are not the one's who decide if i'm qualified or not. They are just assistants i guess. They always refer me to download the Application-online. And the information on the applications usually are the requirements without extra details for exempt or extraordianary cases like mines.

    when i endorsed my license to texas, they didn't ask for any cgfns or transcripts. i just submitted their requirements (live scan finger print, license verification from california bon, and passing the jurisprudence exam).. after that, the sent my my permanent license..
