Passed Canadian NCLEX, transfer to Illinois?

by BS0325 BS0325 (New) New

I am a Canadian nurse that got my initial registration in Canada by writing the "Canadian" NCLEX and am trying to get my license in Illinois. I am facing difficulties as I don't want to have to go through the exam application and have to rewrite the NCLEX in the US but they haven't caught up with the fact that Canadian RNs write the NCLEX to get registered. This is such a frustrating process so any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!!

I would imagine you complete application for license by exam and then arrange with your college to forward your NCLEX results to the state BON
