World International

Published

hi, im a license nurse in the phils, my school has submitted my breakdown of nusing program to the california BON last May, the thing is i am curently in california, i arrived 1st week of june 2009 with a tourist visa. I wanted to take the nclex here. my problem is, how could I send my licensure apllication form, how do I make my payment?, where should I go for live scan?

  • Should I bring my application in person at Sacramento Ca? could I pay there in cash?
  • Can I mail my apllication from here ( im in culver city) with money inside to sacramento?
  • Can I just include a copy of my diploma and license? or does it need to be authenticated?

  • should i bring my application in person at sacramento ca? could i pay there in cash? you can do that but waiting time for you to get elibilibilty may take time and your tourist visa is about to end.
  • can i mail my apllication from here ( im in culver city) with money inside to sacramento? anywhere and anyhow you can send your documents offcourse with corresponding fee inside it for them to process it. mode of payment can be either thru cashier's check, credit card, or cash payable to the concerned bon. time frame of waiting may take long as the there is an increase number of applicants for licensure in the said state and may take them time in reviewing your credentials. b
  • can i just include a copy of my diploma and license? or does it need to be authenticated? diploma and license should be send directly by the concerned institution to bon, as they will not honor anything coming from you directly regarding that matter.

take note that having a tourist visa allows you to be there for only a specified month and one its up, you have to go back here in philippines. i believe by the time you receive your eligibility your visa is about to expire, so i highly recommend that you take the exam here in makati city. goodluck then on your plans. i hope everything will come in the right time and right place!:D

It takes on average 4-6 months to get eligibility to sit the exam and as mentioned you may find your tourist visa expires before you can sit the exam.
