Name change

Hi! This topic is not directly about the exam. I am asking it here 'coz there may be someone here who dealt with same case.

I registered for nclex 2007 using my maiden name back in the Philippines, I got married on 2008 but didn't change my registration name thinking it might cause delays or confusion. I am re-taking this June and still using my maiden name and IF God permits I pass my RN license will still be my maiden name. I am now using my married name on all my papers except for this nclex...what should I do? I am afraid if I submit 'name change' it will cause a delay on my ATT. I badly need to take the exam. I don't even know what step to do.

Please share your opinion. Thank you so much.

What does your official ID say? If it is in your new name then you will have to do the changes because you have to provide the ID at the time of the test and it must match the name on your ATT. However, if it were me, I would do all the changing before the test so that your license is issued in the new name. Get over the hassle now, rather than later.

Hi Caliotter3! My passport is still under my maiden name and valid, I used that in coming to the US which I also used as identification during my last nclex exam. I thought of changing my name as I apply for reciprocity in Ohio, I really have no idea why I want to hear from someone who did this.

Thank you Caliotter3.

You're probably a little concerned. After all, dealing with government agencies can be time consuming as well as frustrating. If your passport is still in your old name, then go forward and do all the changing afterwards. That seems like it would be the easiest route. Good luck.

Thank you for easing my mind.
