As of this moment, the Philippine Nursing License is not a requirement for you to sit for the NCLEX. If you are going to work in the USA and you are sure that you don't need it, you can skip the Philippine Nursing Licensure exam. Apart from passing the NCLEX, what you might need is the CGFNS exam (if the State where you'll work requires it) or a CES (which is an evaluation of your documents/grades).
Oh really??? So u mean I can get a job here in US even NOT taking the local board exam in Phil?? But of course I need to take the NCLEX here. So the local board exam doesnt much apply here in US?? Cause Not being so negative. but I've heard that a lot of nursing graduate in Phil haven't pass the board exam and those others examinations. Cause Im afraid that Im going back to Phil and taking the risk of taking the nursing course and not passing the local board exam.Which in my thoughts that if U cant pass the local board exam then theres no way for me to get a job here in US?? So if thats the case that i can skip the philippine nursing licensure exam then maybe its a lot better?? I mean less for everything?? Whewww...well I dont know.....hmmmm....
My husband wanted me to study in Phils because aside its a lot cheaper there ,we wanted to stay in Phil for a while.
And by the way, did u study in Phil???In which Part? Just wanna know, is the teaching skill of any school in phil are worth it?
acctually im a graduate of education major in Biology in MSU-IIt.Mindanao state of university. But i've talked to some of the staff in Cebu college they said, still I'll be taking the 4 years course of nursing even Im a second courser.But maybe some of my subject will be credited .? Also, I know that we only have 4 years nursing course in Phils right? unlike here we can study a nurse for just 2 years and then maybe got a job. So if graduate in Phil for 4 years course of nursing WILL I BE A REGISTERED NURSE HERE when i get a job in the hospital, considering i'll pass the Nclex???? Cause theres a difference between an LPN and RN .....but in Philippines there is only One the "4 years course"...so Is that a registered NUrse (RN)already here???
