NCLEX RN Eligibility For Foreign Nurses

  1. I'm a nurse in the Philippines and I'm planning to take the NCLEX RN exam here in CA. I had submitted all the requirements from my school all that's left is my application. I'm wondering if how'd I know if im eligible to seat down and take the exam? Or if I have to go school first? Cause I heard that they changed the standards during these previous years.. Thank you

    You'll know if you have educational difficiences and what they are when they CA BON informs you. It can certainly take a while, but they're the only reliable source of information.

    Moved to the Nurse Registration forum

    Suggest checking out the several threads discussing this subject. Do you have a US SSN?

    Start the application and you would get to where you you have to pay the fee. It's there in the application.
