Hello have you found out anything about refresher course? I just passed the test on june 6th haven't gotten any letter yet from the Texas BON, but I am assuming that I need to do the FENS since I graduated year 2007 and just have 6 months of experience! I would really appreciate all the info I can get. Thank you!

How much was the FENS? I'm also applying for Texas. I graduated 2006 and got my license the same year and i don't have any experience at all. Just want to know ahead how much it costs? Thanks :)

Was it beneficial? Or do you think an extensive course would be better? Thanks

Hello everyone, im an RN in the Philippines and i applied for nclex-rn here in texas. today the texas bon sent me a letter saying i need to take a refresher course after passing the nclex exam. anyone know where can i take the course here in houston? im stressing out with this whole process and the exam and now they sent me this letter sigh. And if anyone with the same situation as me (esp. here in houston!) can you please private message me and we can share information about the process! Godbless future nurses and All registered nurses!

Hi there, how are you?? I am from Houston, Texas (LPR /green card holder) however I am planning on going back to Philippines to study(finish) my nursing education. I left some years back to work and help with my family's finances but now I am ready to go back and pursue what should have been done years ago. I am coming back as a 3rd year irregular student so with that, I am looking at about 2-3 years timeline to graduate and obtain my BSN. I do really need some helpful insights as far as coming back to Texas and finding jobs in the near future once I graduate. I am also planning on taking the NCLEX exam in the Phils instead, since from what I heard from some filipino nurses here it is easier to come back already licensed. I hope you can help out a fellow pinay.. looking forward to hearing back from you! God Bless!!

Hi everyone, I am a foreign nurse, I live in Houston Texas. I was asked by the Texas board of nursing to submit proof of 80 clinical hours in psychiatrics nursing before I will be eligible to take NCLEX RN. please anyone knows where I can take refresher course or a preceptor who can help me for my clinical hours?. I will really appreciate your help, thanks.

Hi Ladi,

If I am not mistaken, if you graduate from the philippines, your psych clinicals should have 80 hrs. Check your Transcript. Did you have your transcript verified by cgfns?
