For those of you already with the ATT, you will still need to make arrangements to test before the expiriation date of the document.

Feb 10, '07Joined: Jun '06; Posts: 2We should be happy of the things that NCSBN announcement that Manila, Philippines, as the new site for the NCLEX examination. It will be NCSBN and Pearson Vue will do the coordinating on how things will be doing in the Philippines.
Let us not think of negative things let's be positive we know that the first year will be a bulk of the examinees. If others can't wait they can still schedule their NCLEX with Asian country or USA. What is important NCSBN already considered our country. God bless Philippines.

Feb 11, '07Joined: Feb '07; Posts: 9i wonder why NCSBN selects Pearson Professional Centers and not Pearson Authorized Centers..... If it selected pearson authorized centers, there are so many in the philippines....
Feb 11, '07Joined: Aug '05; Posts: 4,785; Likes: 900There is increasing possibility that NCLEX testing could be implemented this year. Any formal announcements would have to be made on Pearson-VUE's website.
Quote from a local newspaper:
" Pearson-VUE, the company that actually handles the NCLEX outside America, made an extra pitch. Fraser Cargill, as Asia-Pacific director, said that if anyone has to worry about exam and physical security, it's him. Yet his firm gives out three other international tests in the Philippines, including supposedly deadly Mindanao, and has had no hitches. Cargill added that only in the Philippines is his work being made easier by a Task Force that reports directly to the President. It was thus that he gave an estimate of three months max to set up the first NCLEX test site in Manila. "

the task force nclex was able to proved that we are able to correct what is wrong and to proved to the ncsbn that we deserved to hold an nclex testing center here in manila.
everything happens for a reason, indeed we can only correct a mistake by doing what is right and not patching it with somethng wrong that wud jus make it worse.
god knows how to teach
