I already passed the local nursing exam..I'm frustrated because some of my classmates have just breezed through their NCLEX application.What should i do?Everything that they asked from me and my school have already been submitted.

    If you're from PH, not an immigrant, forget applying to CA. You're wasting your time. Better to just stay in the PH.

    But a lot of them are green card holders. How can you just suggest they stay in the Philippines? This should be a lesson learned that if you're already a green card holder then just obtain your nursing degree in the US in order to avoid the long, stressful, justified, time consuming process.

    Sorry greenjungle, I misread your post.

    I'm a greencard holder. I just received the eligibilty to be an immigrant just after I graduated from college as a BSN. So I didn't have the option to study here in the US. I didn't know that there are other requirements for the re-application for NCLEX, no one knew because it is a new requirement from the BRN. It is also not posted anywhere in their website. You will just receive a letter after you reapply for the test,with the 150 reapplication fee which is nonrefundable, requiring such new requirements. For those who are not immigrants or green card holders, I admire you're perseverance in pursuing your nursing career here in US.

    PS.Please update us.thanks =)

    some of the case here just received their immigrant status,approved petition from their parents or spouse as not all have the chance to study here inthe US..Sadly the new CABON law was implemented..

    why will they just stay in the PH.if they have another chance applying in a different state?they sure all know that its hard to apply licensure in CABON if their not an immigrant because of the SSN reqs.
