Does anyone here know what the average results are for equivalency tests for a Philippine RN trying to practice in the United States? Equivalency tests I'm interested in results for are the CGFNS, the ERES, and the IERF. Basically, I want to know if they usually find an RN Bachelor's license to be equivalent, or what upgrades they usually require to qualify to take the NCLEX.

Thanks, and have a great day.

If you're referring to your PNLE test result percentage as equivalent to you.S. standards, that is not applicable. I am in California. This state doesn't require foreign country test results. What most states require though is your nursing license in your country. A few  states don't even require your nursing license, just the degree (BSN) is enough. And yes, you'll go through CGFNS for most states, and in California, it's directly to the board of registered nursing. And yes, our BSN degree in the Philippines is equivalent to the BSN here in the you.S. What you're gonna do is to choose a state or territory where you're going to apply. Each state has their own policies and instructions on how to apply as a foreign or international grad. Each state also has their own website. So just Google your interested state or territory and look for the information about applying as a foreign or international grad.
