Ok now I was always suffering from test anxiety...to be honest i never thought that i would get through the vigorous lpn program...I was lucky to have an exceptional instructor...she travels every year to write questions for the boards...PN and RN...so listen carefully my friend...this is what I was INSTRUCTED to do along with all my other fellow classmates last year..lol..all you have to do is this...get the Saunders N-CLEX PN flashcards....thats it..practice questions and answers...keep doing them...trust me..doing quetions and answers will help you with test taking skills..it will help you eliminate answers that are obviously NOT the answer..trust me..this is coming from a "Procrastinator"...lol...My instrucotr just told us to do Saunders flashcards...and get the saunders "orange" book and read the chapters on Infections control...legalities, and familiarize yourself on lad values and hypers with hypos..THATS IT!!!...every one of us in my class passed boards FIRST shot with the minimum of 85 quest..GOOD LUCK!!!...you'll do great!...XoXo

Hi saramanda..if i were you i would do this..im not familiar with overseas licensure...and yes this forum can get confusing at times...the best thing to do is this..what ever state you are deciding to live in here in the united states...call their Board of Nursing...each state in this country has a Board of nursing...for example...New York...its New York state Board of Nursing...florida..Florida State Board of Nursing etc etc...when you decide what state it is that you are to move to ...call their Board of Nursing..and once you have contacted them they will be able to assist you with your question about licensure here in the United States...I had a friend who got licensure here from Haiti..and she had to go through Albany which is the capital of the state of new york for her eligibility to be evaluated by the US...although she lived in Florida..she however had to take the Boards here in the US after Approval from the US...I hope this helped a bit...good luck...XoXo
