    Expired NCLEX Ca

    Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping well. I took the NCLEX exam for California in 2010 and was issued a VisaScreen ICHP certificate the following year. Unfortunately, that has since expired. I am now living and working as an RN in the UK, but expressing my intention to move to California in a few years' time. Please I wanted to clarify if I need to do re-do the process - application and submission of documents, take the exam, etc. - or, I can still recover my test result from 2010 to reapply? I am wondering if anyone has a similar experience? Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Best wishes

    Applying for ONP

    Yes, I have contacted most of the schools listed in the NMC's website but most of them directed me to their website to apply online. I think you're right though, it might be uni to uni policies as some of them offer placements attached to their programmes (like South London College and Manchester Metropolitan University) while others offer only the 20 days of protected learning time. Although I've also heard about non-EU nurses getting approved despite lacking a few hours, I think that maybe NMC will consider the application if the difference isn't more than a 50. I am not entirely sure about it though as it's only based on hearsay. I am from the Philippines by the way and here are my hours.. Theoretical Hours: 2,718 (NMC requires 2,300) Clinical Hours: 2,314 (NMC requires 1,533) Total: 5,032 Lastly, do you happen to know a list or a website of supervised practice placement providers here in London? Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!

    Decision letter

    I am actually in the same situation. I've been here in the UK since August and have just received my NMC assessment letter just this past week. However, as I am only on a visitor's visa and will be going back to my home country (Philippines) by February 2010, I am hoping to secure a placement and apply to an NMC-approved university before my visitor's visa expires.

    Applying for ONP

    Hiya guys, I have just received my assessment letter from the NMC. I would like to know the application process in applying for the ONP. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've been told, you need to apply for a university approved by the NMC and the uni will be the ones to secure a supervised placement in an affiliated hospital. It was also stated in the assessment letter that "in order to enrol... you will need to contact an approved educational institution directly". However, from scouring through a couple of university websites, they prefer that you have secured a practice placement first before applying for the ONP course while other universities did not mention the need for a placement. That left me a bit confused: apply for a placement in an approved care home/hospital first or go to the university first? Happy holidays!

    How to pay NMC application fee for overseas nurses

    Hiya guys, I have just received my assessment letter from the NMC. I would like to know the application process in applying for the ONP. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've been told, you need to apply for a university approved by the NMC and the uni will be the ones to secure a supervised placement in an affiliated hospital.

That left me a bit confused: apply for a placement in an approved care home/hospital first or go to the university first? With regards to SECOND COURSERS, I myself took the nursing degree in two years. What I did with my NMC application is that I asked my college dean to write me a certification which states that I have already finished by basic general education subjects, hence requiring me to only comply the nursing theories and the RLE. For the required number of hours, I included the minor subjects from my first degree (which was Medical Technology) and added that one to my nursing subjects so I can reach the required number of theoretical and practical hours. I'm happy to say that it produced a positive outcome. Anyway, can someone shed some light on my original query? Happy holidays everyone
