Hi lawrence! just a quick, dumb question. :wink:
If that is the case, why can't the June 2006 examinees apply for the VisaScreen certification? I mean, can't they just state that they didn't took the exam? Thanks for clarifying...
That's a good question, actually.
No, they can't state that they didn't take the exam. That will be considered fraud/mis-representation. That's why if you ever took the exam, you are obliged to disclose it and show proof that you passed it BUT if one never ever took it then s/he then can make a letter of explanation that s/he doesn't have a local license by virtue that s/he didn't take the NLE for the reason that s/he doesn't have plans to practice as a RN in the Philippines. Pretty much the same thing when people apply to CA BRN and other States. You can be made eligible to take the NCLEX directly w/o a local license as long as you have a valid reason.
Many people are asking the same question as you are as most are thinking of the same thing after CGFNS finally gave the decision w/c is why I gave a friendly reminder in the Phil. forum, as a precautionary measure, that doing such thing would be considered fraud or mis-representation. Ignorance of the law could not be made as an excuse for breaking it.
