I have been waiting for my authority to test(i am a british nurse). I just got a letter from the NYS Board saying my application has been sent to the Bureau of Comparative Education for a review of my education.Is this normal proceedure or does this mean there is a problem? Thanks:confused:

When did you do your training? This sometimes happen if the BON can not make their mind up to whether your training meets theirs. Unfortunately UK training doesn't always meet US requirements as you may be short in some hours as US is general where UK is more specialised.

Moving this to the International forum.

Not sure if you already have a work visa for the US but if not you may want to read up on retrogression as it is affecting many many nurses

They cannot decide if your education is comparable to US education so they will have to dig into your curriculum before giving the verdict. Good luck.

Hi I trained in 1986. I have a green card and have sat the nclex before in 1997 failed it and then got pregnant two more times so i am only now ready to work again. Surely if I was given the authority to test once they cannot now say my british training is not good enough can they?

I am so nervous as my eldest starts college in the fall and I need to start my career again. I want to take a back to nursing course but I cannot without my license!

Thanks the only thing is they DID give me the authority to test 12 years ago ,I failed it then had two more children... and now I am trying to take it again.... can they question this if they already said yes once? Or have the standards changed again?......I do have a green card by the way:confused:

Thanks for helping me!!!

Training in 86 then you should be OK but they may have an issue if you haven't nursed for a few years. Good luck
