    Have you asked the NY BON the reason for the delay? Is it related to your NCLEX pass letter? If your file lapsed with the BON that has record of your NCLEX or if it has been years since you renewed and the BON requires applicants to re-write the NCLEX after 8 years without renewing, you may need to apply for license by examination.

    hi thanks for the reply, before i filed my papers, i make sure to get all the info. the nclex pass letter doesnt expire, only if u want to apply in california u need to file another application but u dont need to rewrite the exam, also i think ive read also in CA BON those who pass nclex after 1982, u dont need to tke it again, CABON knows that the reason of delays is retrogression. I think what you understood about after 8 yrs are those who already have an a CA license but did not renewed.

    Confusion:
    Ok just a quick question. So I am a Canadian RN with a Bachelor Degree. So I will be able to receive a 3 year license with out writing the NClex? Can I work for 3 years with out writing the exam or do I still have to write it? I m in NY for one more year? Can you please help. It is very confusing and as you mentioned office of professions is no help!

    Hi there... Just wondering, now that Ontario has the NCLEX exam, do you still need to get approved from NY state to write or can you write in Ontario and send them marks afterwards? Thank you to anyone who knows

    Check with the BON but expect you to still apply and just arrange for results to be forwarded

    I Really appreciate you for sharing these infos. I am an RN from Ontario and just starting my application for my move to NYC.
    I saw that CVSNY were asking for primary school and highschool information. Do they actually call highschool or middle school for transcripts. I did mine from back home in india long ago. I am not even sure if they would have my information anymore. What happens if they are not able to contact those schools?? I am not worried about my Bachelors school because i did it here in Canada.

    Thanks
