I'm a new nurse and I'm looking for a job somwhere East (Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, Michigan, Virginia) help me out! I've got a lot of offers in California but I really want to get work somwhere east!
I just called Ca BON this afternoon and somebody told me that he cannot give the result by phone, he said to wait for 31 days and it will come in the mail. What did you say when you talk to the operator? I called Ca BON thinking that I'm gonna get my result too, 'coz I read your post that you got your's by calling Ca board. Thanks and God Bless!
Actually I didn't really asked if I passed, I think the operator just slipped. I asked her about the status of my nclex results and asked why it hasn't been mailed to me yet. The operator then, checked in the computer then told me that they were just waiting to verify my live scan before they release my license. I think whatever was told to me was unintentional and to those who would like to find out I guess you would have to wait for the mail. Anyway, I got my mail already good thing it's true that i passed.
CONGRATS FIL!!!! You finally got your result and I'm so happy that you passed!!!:smiley_aa GOodluck to you!
I took the nclex-rn last aug 15, After finishing the test at 75 questions, I'm really feeling so devastated. I hoped that I could have answered more questions assuming that I failed. This morning I called the Ca BON and they told me that I passed and that they were just waiting for my finger prints to issue my license. I felt so relieved! I made a lot of sacrifices just to prepare for the nclex! I've been away from my wife for 6 long months, I resigned from my job just to study and its a good feeling to know that one's sacrifices has paid off. God is so good, and I wouldn't have pulled it through if not for Him and my family's support. I just wish everybody who just took the nclex best of luck! I would be waiting for your threads saying that you passed!
As many of you know...I've taken my exam last Aug. 22 in California and I still haven't gotten my result. Tomorrow will be my 2nd week of waiting unless today is an exemption because it's labor day. My exam stopped at 75, had alot of select all that apply, prioritization, delegation. I've seen some members in the forum who took their test later than me and found out they passed 3 days after. I'm getting frustrated and depressed from waiting because now I feel that I probably failed. I'm sorry for all this I just need to vent from waiting too long and feeling that I probably failed again for the third time...
I checked on the pearsonvue website and it said status pass...what a relief!!! I know they're unofficial results but that still means passing right? Good luck to everyone...
fil-rn thanks for the information. how long does it take your wife to process her application in ohio? ok ba talaga yung compact states? do they require cgfns passer o kahit yung certification lang?
if you are filipino nurses, try applying in one of the compact states. my wife applied in ohio and it's a bit fast as long as you submit all the requirements all at once (my wife submited hs diploma, diploma from her nursing school, transcript, license verification, and applied for ces from cgfns. in my case, i'm a permanent resident and when i applied it took the ca bon 6 mos to process my application. i'm assuming that the filipino nurses asking about this are not permanent residents ot citizens? most of my friends there applied in one of the compact states and they said it's faster and easier, so i guess it's worth a try?
tagalog is not permitted per the tos of this bulletin board, all posts must be in english.
i may sound clueless, but what are compact priveleges?
Filipino RNs nowadays apply for either Vermont or New Mexico and many of them are posting that it only takes about 2-3 mos. because they don't require any service from CGFNS to be made eligible. They then endorse to another state that doesn't also require any service from CGFNS such as CA.
There will also be instances that it is better to just apply directly to the State BON you would like to be licensed to, esp. for those State BONs that require CGFNS' CES such as NJ, FL, IL to name a few.
If you'll do a search here, you'll come upon threads and posts on how to apply to those 2 BON.
i've read all about it and i still want to apply to cali because of my relatives, mainly.
so my question: will they accept my registration if i send only my diploma with supporting papers like certificate of passing since my license is not processed yet due to the leakage issue. will they accept it? what do you think??? i really want this registration to be over and done with. please, i need help.
The bottom line is if you think an agency would be able to help you out, better make sure that everything is clear and in writing. Don't just rush into signing the contract, be sure to read the fine print also. Make sure the agency that your applying to is reputable. Remember, US laws are strict and protects its citizens (take note). I'm a permanent resident and I for a fact know that there are different benefits that apply to citizens which I do not have. What more for those only holding a working permit or visa? I'm not discouraging all those who want to seek an agency, just be careful and make sure you are not at a disadvantage.
Sorry, but they take at least $5 US for every hour that you work for them.
And if you do the math, that comes to $9600 per year, that is insane.
They do not collect a fee, they take it right off of the top.
And there is no such thing as a free green card. It comes out of your pocket.
I'm applying in Illinois...
I just got confused, I know you can go on with the application even without a local license but in our case... We have one but we don't have it yet.. and we don't know when we will be able to get it... so I'm thinking if I should go on without it or wait for it... because if i go on, they might question me on why i didnt declare my license... but if I wait, I'm wasting my precious time naman... *sigh*
