    what's BON??

    BON- Board of Nursing

    I agree with Suzanne, it doesn't matter who are the members in the BON. If you really study hard, you will pass the exams, may it be the NLE, CGFNS or NCLEX.

    I also don't agree with people asking for tips about the exams because this are the things that get us into trouble (nothing personal, just my own opinion). Don't rely on what the other test takers say because it would only stress you out more. Just study, read your review materials, relax and most importantly pray. Believe that you can do it.

    Good luck to all of you!

    i took the june 2007 board exams and what can i say is that, the questions were formulated to test your CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS. so my advice? read books where there are clinical simulations answer them.

    and lastly believe in yourself!

    If your goal is to work and migrate to the US you can actually skip the NLE if your intended State do not require CGFNS Certification.

    However, if you have plans to practice as a RN in the Phil. then go ahead but be careful on w/c review centers to go through as some employers in the US will be asking if you have attended local review centers.

    The June 2006 NLE controversy is a big news in the US as it was here in the Philippines.
    hello sir! i just want to know if.. incase a person did not pass the NLE and he will apply for the NCLEX after he failed, do you think it will affect the application for the ncleX considering that the person failed the philippoine local board?

    thanks

    Yes, it will. Look at it from the other side, if you were working at the BON in the US: Would you want a nurse who could not pass the local boards in their own country? And also the nurse needs a Visa Screen Certificate, and it needs to be recorded there that the person did not pass their exam, and that it was taken. And the VSC is required for the green card to live and work in the US.

    The NLE is not a requirement currently to work in the US. This means that it is not required to be taken, however, if the person takes it, then they must pass it if they are planning to work in the US.

    sorry,suzanne4,..to ask about this Q's .It's likewise concerning NCLEX(approval & Disapproval)
    just wanna ask about your opinion regarding this prob.. How The BON particularly evaluating the said requirements (TOR) to be qualified to take NCLEX? I haven't read something once there's reflected failed on the TOR in particularly major nrsg. subj.is one of the cause /reason of DISAPPROVAL(These 2 subj.were already passed after the retake.)i guess reflected failed in TOR doesn't mean a NURSE is already incompetent or whatever...

    looking forward of your opinion...thanks

    thanks suzzane. but how is it possible for the BON in US to know if the filipino nurse did not pass the NLE?

    what if the nurse has an immigrant visa already? is the person still impossible to take the nclex?

    thanks you so much. i hope you can enlighten me
