hi im new here, im a bsn graduate planning to migrate US this year, just want to ask if i still need to take local board exam before taking nclex?

Are you actually getting a green card and to which state will you be moving? They each have their own requirements and some do require the local license.

AFAIK, to be able take the NLCEX exam, you should have first the CGFNS exam or CES, and one requirement for that is a local board...

AFAIK to be able to take the NCLEX, on requirement for the NCLEX exam is either CGFNS exam or CGFNS CES and to be able to have a CGFNS exam or CES you must have a local licence, if you are still not an immigrant (being petitioned by your parent)

but if your parent already petitioned you, you can take the NCLEX without the local board (in some state)

Actually, no. Being an immigrant has nothing to do with a State requiring CES, CGFNS Certificaton or local boards.

Everything depends on the State BON or BRN. Many non-immigrants are able to apply for licensure to CA BRN or VT BON w/o going through CES or CGFNS Certification. That's their individual State Board policy. Also, US Citizens who went to school in PH for their BSN will still go through either the CES or CGFNS Certification if the State they are getting license to requires it for foreign-educated nurses. Likewise, a Filipino Citizen who took nursing in US is not cosidered a foreign-educated nurse and should not apply as such when applying for licensure.

The term is foreign-educated nurses and not foreign national nurses. Requirements for licensure has nothing to do with citizenship but where they were educated.

The only thing citizenship or residency status applies is the Visa Screen Certification. US Citizens and US permanent residents do no need to apply for visa screen anymore.
