Hello I am Friday24.

I currently Passed and  RN in Hawaii, I would like to ask about the Endorsement regarding Hawaii to Nevada, I am a US citizen and a SSN holder I also graduated Highschool in California and pursed my Nursing in the Philippines. I was told that Nevada does a case by case papers that don't allow you to take the English Proficiency Exam. I was hoping if anybody may have the same situation as me or have pass through this trial as I did i would like to inquiry information regarding what am I supposed to do. 

Please message me to have a clear understanding in what am I supposed to do and furthermore regarding the Exam.

In my interactions with the Nevada State Board of Nursing, I found them responsive and cooperative.  You might consider sending them an email, since no one here has responded yet.

They will require fingerprints when you apply. There are multiple places to get them done, but make sure to go to a place that submits them electronically, because they will be processed much faster (oddly, the Las Vegas Police Department doesn't). The NSBON website includes a list of places that do fingerprints, and it identifies the ones that submit electronically. You will also have to resubmit fingerprints every five years (mine is due now).

Hey! 

How's your application with Nevada BON?

Our situation is almost similar and I have called Nevada BON before. I was told that if you earned your BSN/Nursing Internationally like Philippines, they will ask you to take English Proficiency test( TOEFL/Pearson test).

I hope you were able to successfully endorse your license without hassle.

I would love to hear from you!
