Are there any June 2006 passers here who did not took the retake last December 2006 and are currently working right now in the US as a RN? What are the requirements needed to apply for a VisaScreen? Does it require a local license - a Filipino RN license? I am asking this one because for your information CGFNS just released a statement that June 2006 passers who did not took the retake for the NLE last December would be denied for the VisaScreen application hence, they could not work in the US.
This decision made by the CGFNS is unfair in my opinion. A local license is not required for a BSN graduate to sit and take NCLEX. This is a fact so I just can't understand why CGFNS made a statement such as this one. It's a pity for us June 2006 passers who worked so hard just to passed that exam.
I am just disappointed to the former PNA President for the mess that he did. I just hope that the honest and hardworking June 2006 passers would have justice from all of these fiascos. I just hope that Mr. xxxxxx ill also suffer for what he did. Removing him or suspending him is not enough payment for what he has done.
If you did not take the exam at all then there is no problem.
Problem arise if you took it and did not pass it or in this case took and passed it but deemed not comparable by US Standards. You have to declare all licenses ever held and disclose whatever licensing exam you took.
Remember, you need to provide a valid explanation on why you don't hold a license and failing it or not declaring it (even though you hold one) is not a valid reason and considered fraud as an impt. data was withheld.
The only valid reason that is accepted is the explanation that you did not take the boards because you don't have plans to work in your country of origin and not disclosing that is fraud as explained above.
Also, it's no use to withhold any info such as passing the NLE or having a license, esp. in our country where a list of names of passers are printed for public view in all major newspapers and eventually stored in PRC's website.
