NCLEX as PH graduate immigrant

World Registration


Hi I'm new here please help me out. 


I graduated in the Philippines this year with BSN degree and recently my family migrated here in AZ, USA. I want to knows if I can take the NCLEX in AZ and if possible what are the requirements? I also have my green card now. I hope someone can help me. 


Thank you very much!!

Instructions are on the Arizona Board of Nursing's page, here:

This is the information on Citizenship and Alien Status from the AZ BON:

Key will be finding out if the nursing program you attended was "an approved program."  Often the requirements of non-US programs differ enough from the US programs that this may be an issue.  Wish you best of luck in passing NCLEX and getting your license!
