NCLEX Endorsement

Posted
amphetamine amphetamine (Member)

there have been recent changes on nclex, like having SSN prior to NCLEX application, other states now require CES, etc. i passed the NCLEX-RN for California. i do not have SSN. to which state should i endorse it the cheapest, fastest? is there a state that does not require CES, etc? back in 2009, i was able to take NCLEX california without CES.

There are no fast or cheapest states, generally a case of looking at the various states boards of nursing website and see what fits the bill, most require CES or some form of transcript assessment

we are on the same boat ciprofloxacin..i asked NEAC(they processed my papers for nclex) and they told me not to worry regarding that ssn.nobody can take away the fact that we are already nclex passers.should our file deactivate,it can still be reactivated once we got our ssn.have your nclex endorsed if you already have an employer in a certain state,or else,u would be wasting money for sure.

i'm quite confused with what you said. you mean it's okay even though we do not have SSN? my concern above all is i don't want to repeat the nclex since i already passed it

btw, NEAC also processed my NCLEX...

what i mean by faster processing is bigger states (ex. california, NY) versus smaller states (vermont, NM). i'm not sure but in the latter i think is faster because it's a smaller state, hence smaller number of applicants

what i meant by cheaper was the absence of CES (which costs, i'm not sure but i think, USD385 or PHP16555)

now my question: what are the smaller states that do not require CES and SSN, and will issue US nursing license upon endorsement of NCLEX passing result from California?

i rule out the idea of working in the US. i just want my US nursing license (on whatever state, i don't care) so i won't repeat the NCLEX-RN again

We have now seen another state follow on like CA and state they will no longer accept applicants that do not have a SSN so expect a few more to follow suite. I think you will also find that only CA is the only state that doesn't do CES. Most if not all the other states do CES or use another approved agency to eval your transcripts. I suggest you also spend some time whilst waiting for replies to check out some of the state BONs and links can be found at the bottom of the page

Right now with all of the cutbacks it makes sense to require a ssn. The state BRNs need to focus on those who are authorized to work in the US. I agree with Silverdragon, I wouldn't surprise me that more states are going to start requiring ssn once they see the massive applications who aren't authorized to work here. The BRNs are bombarded with many applications, it makes sense to focus on those who can work here.

you should have voiced out ur concerns to them..anyway,i talked with mam yani and thats what she said..we won't have to retake the nclex,coz we already passed it.if you want to have an active license,then very well,ask for the requirements for endorsement to another state(try for New york),.the thing is,if you're not gonna be working on that state,you'll be wasting money,coz by then you'll have to have your nclex endorsed again to the state where you applied for work.and the fees(according to mam yani)are almost the same as paying for your nclex,only,you're not gonna take the exam again..:yeah:

i already know this. that's why i'm worried that my nclex passing result would expire come 2012

who is mam yani? so it's 100% guaranteed we will not retake the nclex (even after 3 years of no endorsement, license or SSN?) again since we already passed it?

money really is a big problem with endorsement, but the bigger problem is to retake the nclex. acquiring a USRN license for sure will guarantee me not retaking it, but if there's a way to not retake nclex even without endorsement+license, then that would be very convenient for a poor nurse like me.

i don't wanna work in the US, but who knows? :confused:

There is no 100% guarantee that you do not have to resit the NCLEX again. If that was the case there are many US nurses who let their license lapse and didn't work for a few years and when reapplying to be a nurse was informed by the state BON that they had to sit NCLEX again before a license would be issued.

If you don't want to work in the US then why did you apply for the exam? That's a waste of money right there. You should really apply to take the exam where you want to work whether it be in the US, Japan, Austraia etc. Of course it's wise to work in a place where RNs are needed and at the moment there are less jobs in the US than applicants. Focus on a place where there truely is a shortage of nurses then once things start to bloom elsewhere then you can try something different. Good Luck
