9 years non practicing Nurse trying to get back on he field of nursing?

  1. Hey everyone! I need some advice regarding my current situation. I am a foreign educated nurse who lives in the US for 9 years now. I tried taking up my licensure 2010 and failed never attempted since then. There were times I wanted to apply for licensure but at that time SSN was a requirement for the BON application and I don't have one. Gladly, 2 years now we received our permanent ID's so I have the courage to comeback in the field.

    Any advice what to do. For starters, I know I have to start catching up with whats current in the field. Any advice from you guys...

    Do you meet the BON application requirements? Have you applied?

    Haven't applied yet. But the first and last time I did I met all the requirements BON in California. I just don't know currently I live in Illinois, will research on it still. For now I am taking time to study (self review) so that I can gauge my weakness and strengths so that I know where to focus.
