just really curious...with all these issues on june 2006 nle, is there or will there be any issue that will likely crop up for first-time nle takers this coming december 2006? prc said that they will push through with the exam even without members of bon, who are supposedly responsible for the administration of the licensure exam. of course, prc, being the regulatory body, does have a say on what road they shall take on pushing through with the dec 2006 nle.
although prc requirements are still being prepared or have already been submitted, the issues of june 2006 and the status of bon right now with the decision of prc to proceed with dec 2006 nle raised some confusion on the part of the first-time takers. [color="gray"]will it be better not to take the exam then since it is not a requirement to sit for nclex? doing so will not permit a graduate nurse to practice her profession in the philippines, what about work experience then? in another forum, some say experience is not that important in landing a us nursing job while others say it is. with the projection that the allocated 50,000 immigrant visas for nurses will be used up by october 2006, the first-time takers this dec will either be jobless or be in another profession while waiting for a new allocation (granting that in both scenarios, they are working on their respective us requirements).
any comments/opinions/ideas out there...? uhmm, moderators...?
thanks, in advance
post-edit: placed the irrelevant post in gray and in smaller. can't erase it now since replies had been made. not exactly proud of the "confusion" i set on for the replies...my apologies...

You may apply now to be eligible to take the NCLEX exam. I recommend reading the stickies here and in the Int'l forum because everything you need to know and then some are in there.
All queries re: applying to NCLEX, Visa Screen, etc.. should be posted in the Int'l forum where it is more appropriate and there is also an NCLEX discussion forum here that some fails to notice. www.allnurses.com/forums/f197
