    hi! i was just wondering because i want to aplly for licensure in vermont and i have seen the application form. It says there on page 3:

    I have practiced nursing as defined in 26 V.S.A. 1576, for at least (check the appropriate statement):
    120 days (960 hours) in the last 5 years or 50 days (400 hours) in the last 2 years
    is it talking about working experience in my country? (since im from the philippines)
    do I have to have a working experience before i can apply for an application for licensure in vermont?

    im really confused.. please can somebody answer my questions. It would be big help for me.. Good day and thank you in advance!
    I leave that part.. i didint put anything there...

    thanks for the reply.. so you have applied in vermont, is it true that the processing time in vermont is much faster than cali? im also considering an application in cali.. i really cant decide.. in the apllication form in vermont, theres a part where you have to place your license number.. i still havent register in prc, my schedule will be on the last day of oct.. do i have to wait for the registration before i can apply? thank you for the reply..

    if you passed the nclex on a particular state then you will be licensed to practice there.. how many years does the license last before it has to be renewed? do you have to take the nclex again in order to renew the license? a reply would be deeply appreciated.. thanks!

    Be prepared for a long process to move to the US, look at a few years, you are affected by retrogression. Have you checked out the International forum, there are threads there which will be of interest



    Can we ask that you don't use capitals as classed as shouting but also had to read

    so because of that retrogression, nurses here in the philippines have to wait for sometime to be able to get a job in the US?! (sigh)... I am planning to apply for licensure in vermont soon then IELTS, is it ok? because i want to finish first all the exams before looking for a job... also i want to ask, is canada and australia under retrogression? because if US will take sometime before retrogression is over, is it ok if i apply first in canada or autralia? is there any particular exams to take?... after passing nclex and IELTS and not be able to work immediately to US because of retrogression, is that ok? does it have a due date or be due in a particular time... sorry if i have lots of questions... i am just bothered and dont know where to start... thanks for the reply and to others who will also give me their views...

    Retrogression is affecting nurses from all over the world, but demand is higher from Philippines, India, China and Mexico. Much better to proceed with application for licensure to be a RN pass NCLEX and then start looking for an employer. May also be worth looking at another country to work but be aware that you will need to meet their requirements. Check each forum to what you need to do, there are threads there that tell you. Much better to look and post in the International forum regarding this subject

    i used to live in chicago before moving here in vermont. chi-town is just a big city for me to live in. so i decided to come to vermont.. ask me why vt? i dont know. i got no friends or relatives here. my first impression in vt is that the place is very very very clean! vermonters are soooo friendly. we have one of lowest crime rate across the country. the pay is decent for me, having worked 10+ yrs as an RN. the 4 seasons are absolutely gorgeous! we have the best fall foliage where actually tourists from around the world come to see the fall here. we have a ton of ski resorts and summer is absolutely wonderful to go biking, go to lake and swim, etc... the downside, be ready for very long and very cold winter nights. snow starts dropping right before thanksgiving or late october and ends late march or early april. the real estate can be expensive, that if you choose to buy houses in burlington.. raising a family here is no doubt the best part in the east. i cant say much because i dont have my own family but i see them through my co-workers. and the best part of it is, the state loves diversity. they welcome immigrants (mainly because vermont has the most white people 96%, percentage wise).
    i work in the operating room www.fahc.org . my co-workers are awesome. we are like family but we are very professional and serious when we handle our cases. you and your family would love to live in vermont. i'd love to show you around when you guys are here already.

    good luck to you guys.

    You need to be using the word petition not sponsor. No matter you will be affected by retrogression and looking at a few years before moving. Although that is no longer a guarantee of passing licensure and having an employer of getting a GC.
