hi. QNC is very particular with the notarization. there should be a note that the document is a "true copy from the original document". Each page must have that note and signature of a notary public.

In my case, (im a walk-in applicant) it took five months because after the first review of my documents(2 months after I submitted my docs) I have this problem with notarization. Luckily I brought all my originals with me, so I show my original documents to them (QNC notarised my docs) but still the waiting period is another 2 months(to have them review my application again).

:(and to think it's easy to follow-up because im just 2 blocks away from the QNC OFFICE.

Hi guy32,

I was curious about your issues with certification. What issues did you encounter in the certification of your documents to QNC that took you 5 months for your approval. Thank you so much.

hi kit25, guy32 mentioned that the certification (in a way) should state "true copy of the original document".. how about your documents, what was the english used?

i have initially talked to a lawyer and understood that he will just stamp "certified copy and authenticated", as i see it now, i will purchase custom-made stamp which state those words mentioned by guy32. just to be sure di ba..

btw kit25, remember my problem with my "board certificate" not yet available and would be release sometime April 2009 - June 2009. I come across somewhere that QNC will send you a letter informing what documents are lacking, and you're given 6 months to comply. The counting of 6 months starts on the day they received your documents.. I guess the solution to my problem is for me to send my application sometime February 2009 (hence my 6th month deadline would be around August 2009), thus if they will hold my application pending "board certificate" submission, i could still comply this before August 2009. And it's better to send application around February, so that my application will be initially reviewed already, unlike if i send it April or May when i receive my board cert. that's late already..

i hope i got my plans right.. for your comment.. thank you for your usual help...

Thank you guy32. I have those words imprinted on my documents in every page. I'm just worried because it doesn't have the address and telephone number on each page. Just the signature and the words: "Subscribed and sworn to me before this day of _______ in the City of Manila." I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Hi... any materials available for competency test A. Where in the web can we get materials. Is there a library that we can be members so we can access to australian nursing books.

hi everyone, i'm still a bit confused about the notarization of the documents. can anybody suggest what's the best/surest way to go about it? i think it was lecna who suggested this format: i have sighted the original document and certify this to be true copy of the original. signed this ___ day of _________ 2008 at ___________, philippines...

for those who recommended customized stamps, what should the stamp say? same thing as lecna said? is that necessary? or can the lawyer just write it down and sign? sorry clueless about notaries, hope anyone can help.

Also, I'd like to ask how to go about the required TOR. there are details specified in the checklist that must be in the TOR, namely name of course and details of course content, commencement/completion date, # of theoretical hours of instruction and clinical practice, signature/stamp of course provider.. I'm not sure if these are all found in the TORs released by our school. When i applied for nclex there was a separate request form that will be filled out by the school for this purpose. Isnt there a similar form for QNC? If none, what do I submit to satisfy the requirement then?

And, TORs and diplomas are usually released by the school with the note "certified true copy." I'm should photocopy this and have the photocopy notarized, correct? Or can i just submit the certified true copy with notarization? Just wanna clarify. ;D

Thanks much, you guys! :)

customizing a stamp would require you to spend more. you can actually tell your lawyer (notary public) to write these words. make sure he/she writes address and telephone number and stamp the dry seal. the date you signed the declaration should also be the date of the notary.

I'm sure you have your diploma with you. Photocopy that diploma and have a notary public certify that. Do the same with your original TOR from your school. You don't have to request for another one if you already have an orginal copy. Your RLE also. The same RLE that you submit during board examinations. Hope this helps.
