    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CHICAGO - The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) will begin NCLEX testing in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, at the international Pearson Professional Center on Aug. 23, 2007. Scheduling for examination appointments will begin on July 13, 2007.

    The Manila site was chosen in February by the NCSBN Board of Directors because of the deep commitment shown by the Philippine government to ensuring a secure test center. The placement of a test site in the Philippines will allow for greater customer service to nurses without compromising the goal of safeguarding the public health, safety and welfare of patients in the U.S.

    Intended for the purposes of domestic nurse licensure in U.S. states and territories, all security policies and procedures currently used to administer the NCLEX examination domestically will be fully implemented at this new site. Administration of the NCLEX examination abroad does not contradict or circumvent any current board of nursing process or requirement. All international candidates are required to apply to the board of nursing in the state or territory where they wish to be licensed before registering for the NCLEX examination. The NCLEX examination fee for all candidates is $200. Candidates who elect to take the NCLEX at an international site pay an additional $150 when they schedule their examination. State and territorial NCLEX examination fees remain at their current levels and are not being used to subsidize the international testing initiative.

    Offered abroad since January 2005, the current international sites for NCLEX examinations are in London, England; Hong Kong; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, Canada; Frankfurt, Germany; Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Chennai, India; Mexico City, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan; and Chiyoda-ku and Yokohama, Japan.

    The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) is a not-for-profit organization whose membership comprises the boards of nursing in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and four U.S. territories.

    US nursing boards council approves RP request
    Nurses may take first exam in Manila Aug. 23


    By RAYMUND F. ANTONIO

    Filipino nursing graduates may now take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in Manila after the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) selected the country’s capital city as a new international NCLEX test site.

    The NCSBN said it had approved the Philippine government’s request for the establishment of a testing center in Manila.
    Dawn Kappel, NCSBN director for marketing and communications, said the examination appointments are scheduled on July 13, Friday and the NCLEX will be administered on August 23 at the International Pearson Professional Center in Manila.
    "The Manila site was chosen in February by the NCSBN Board of Directors because of the deep commitment shown by the Philippine government to ensuring a secure test center," Kappel said.
    The NCSBN is a nonprofit organization comprising the boards of nursing in 50 states, the District of Columbia and four United States territories.
    He said the Manila test site will allow for greater customer service to nurses without compromising the goal of safeguarding the public health, safety and welfare of patients in the US.
    The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO), chaired by Secretary Dante Ang, initiated efforts last year to have the Philippines as a venue for the NCLEX.
    The efforts were nearly scuttled by the controversial leakage in the June licensure nursing exam.
    Filipino nurses are required to take the NCLEX exams, a standardized test, to get a license to work in the US. Each state board of nursing in the US uses the exam to determine the credentials of a nurse.
    According to NCSBN, the NCLEX examination fee for examinees stands at 0 or R9,200 at current conversion rates. "Candidates who elect to take the NCLEX at an international site pay an additional 0 when they schedule their examination," it said.
    Meanwhile, Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Chairperson Leonor Tripon-Rosero said the result of this year’s nursing licensure examination, where 78,000 nursing graduates, including the "retakers", will be released in the last week of August.
    The current international sites for NCLEX are in London, England; Hong Kong; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, Canada; Frankfurt, Germany; Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Chennai, India; Mexico City, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan; and Chiyoda-ku and Yokohama, Japan.
