if you have computer at home you can print the application form and mail it. You can choice NEWYORK, CALIFORNIA, MARYLAND, AND TAKE WHERE EVER YOU WANNA TAKE THE NCLEX. I THINK HAWAII , GUAM IS CLOSE TO HOME AND CHEAPER FLIGHT FOR TICKET.good luck sa inyo and MABUHAY filipino nurses. Welcome to america.........

I'm a Filipina RN born & raised in the USA, & my cousin is in the Philippines who's an RN now wants to try to work here in the USA. For some states (you need to check which specifications the state where you wish to work require), you need both a passing score for the CGFNS (I think that's what they call the over-seas exam) & the TOEFL. Some states require just the CGFNS, so check first. Then, I BELIEVE they are doing the testing actually IN the Philippines, check the website of NCSBN (the national council of state boards of nursing) for further information.

Good luck!
