I just received (11/19/16) my CGFNS CES Report. I am originally from the Philippines residing here in Oregon, USA. I called Oregon BON to check what's the next step to take the NCLEX and I received a dismaying news.

Oregon requires 960 hours of experience within the last 5 years. I am still within the criterion but the catch is, they want my employer to send them a letter stating the number of hours I've with them. The problem though the Cancer Foundation I worked with closed and they just gave us a Certificate of Employment for intended use.

My question is, can somebody help me what are my options? What is the easiest state to apply in case this doesn't work out?

Thanks.

Julie

Is there no one that you can contact or any wage slips that show total hours worked to date?

ORBON requires a letter from the hospital, in my case, the foundation, to be sent directly to them. The problem is, the foundation closed already. We were just given our COE.

The silly thing is, the alternative of not having the 960 hours is to do the re entry program so that you can sit for NCLEX, which I don't mind but when I called the agency that does the program they were confused because you can only do re entry program after passing NCLEX. I called the BON 10 months ago and they said you can take the test but your license will not be released without doing the re entry program. So confusing. :(

Any enlightenment can help. Thanks!

They will only honor a letter from the hospital straight to them. :(
