    Hi , my wife has been advised that PPTS is awaiting the final step in the TESDA recertification, a letter from the Philippines Nurses Association (PNA) I believe.

    NCLEX is administered out of US and the trans-pacific submission of credential to sit for the exam is probably time consuming but that time can be well spent really focusing to obtain passing test results.

    This website has the NCLEX info

    Good luck. The US health care is filled with Filipinos at every level, there are plenty of opportunities here to make good incomes.

    I took my ASN at PPTS in Iloilo. I had my credentials evaluated by CGFNS last year and was downgraded to LPN. Other people who used CGFNS in my school prior to February 2010 were able get RN evaluation from CGFNS. People I know from the same school received LPN evals after that date including me. I took NCLEX-PN and now a licensed in New Mexico. I tried applying for reciprocity in NY but they denied my application because TESDA does not grant us a professional license. They told me to go back to school. I don't want to go back to school anymore. Are there states that do not check credentials after passing NCLEX? NY checks again even if you are already licensed.

    I would to like ask Capt2RN. Where did you have your credentials evaluated? Did you also use CGFNS or an agency in Florida? I would like to use a different evaluation agency to get a RN evaluation from my ASN degree. Any advice?

    You need to finish your clinical classes in the Philippines.

    PPTS campuses in Davao, Cebu etc are operated as franchises I believe so they are independent from each other.

    Any credits at TESDA regulated schools are considered vocational and are not transferable to US colleges, LPN coursework in the US is not transferable to RN programs either.
