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?

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.

Her sister says there are a lot of Phil-ams who are in the program, US tuition is much higher and many schools in US have long waiting lists. She says some of the second generation Phil-ams only know Englisn, no Tagalog or Cebuano.

The clinical part is 2-3 months correct? I would just like some feedback from someone who is currently in the program or has recently completed.
I appreciate your prompt reply.
