I'm sorry, but it seems that someone is being unfair towards kalayaan. All she's saying is that the requirements of the diff US BON might change and they might require the phil NLE in future. It is a possibility, after what happened in the june board. There are also hospitals here in the US that also want the nurses from the phils to take the phil board. In fact, i know someone who plans to get the NLE bec the hosp requires it (even if he passed nclex already).
As of the other information written,
1. You would NOT be sure if you passed the nclex at question #75, even the nclex guides would tell you that. It would take an arrogant person to say that he is sure he passed at #75. And it is NOT random, there is a system to it. That's the reason a person would find himself answering a lot of questions in topics he's not really good in.
2. Yes, there are some subjective questions in the NLE; but i would not say mostly (implying more than 50%). Otherwise, you would have heard complaints from earlier examinees (reason: large numbers would fail the exams because you can not grade adequately a "subjective" exam of this scope)
3. It would be nice to think that the Philippines hold great options for us. But the fact remains that it does not. If it did, how could you explain the fact that the vast majority of filipinos in this forum give so much effort in pursuing their american dream? (Also, Correct me if wrong, but the "neighboring asian countries" have lower salaries and working conditions)
4. In all nle prior to the june boards, you must pass all 5 parts. If you fail even one part, you repeat that part of the exam. Passing less than 5 is not enough. Why, because each part has its own purpose/ focus. Otherwise, why divide it into 5 parts? If we follow that reasoning, the people who do not have their license because they failed one part of the nle should be automatically given their license. The only reason why some parts were not considered was because of the leakage.
5. I'm sorry. but "have to do research and profiling of the BON members before they were BON members". Don't you think that's a wee bit of an exageration? (Don't mean to brag, but I took the nle in 2005; and me and a lot of my friends got scores in the 80s. We don't even know the names of the BON members). And if you read the forums, there are even those who did not join review centers. It's about what you learned in the 4 years of nursing.
Don't get me wrong. I have friends who took the june 2006 boards. And it is unfair for the june boardtakers, no doubt. But please be careful of what you write and don't attack the people who want to express their opinion or give advice.
I'm sorry. I just had to say something. Don't mean to offend
