    IL License Status pending....

    Thank you for replying, and to answer your questions...Yes, I did reapply again through Continental Testing for my second attempt for the NCLEX. And I did received my pass letter 10 days after I took the NCLEX the second time I took it. So it would be Continental that I should contact then..? I contacted IDFPR last week and they said they never received anything from my fingerprint scan, which is weird because how could have I taken my exam? I have been checking everyday the BON website, but still no update on my situation..

    IL License Status pending....

    Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone had ever had the same situation I have in regards to the status of my license. I passed the NCLEX for IL last Jan. 12. I then sent in my payment of $50 a week after. Now, im waiting for my license, however when I checked my license status online this is what I saw.. New Initial Application Enter/Check Education History Pending New Initial Application Administrative/Board Review Pending New Initial Application FBI Check Failed/Rejected 07/11/2017 New Initial Application State Check Failed/Rejected 07/11/2017 This was my second time that I took the exam. The first time was on July 10, 2017. I was just wondering what these things means..and if I have to do anything. Hoping someone can enlighten me!

    Kaplan or uworld

    I took the Nclex twice, one in July 2017 (81qs) and the second one just a few days ago (265qs). I got questions ranging from all of the different topics like growth and development, meds, procedures, lab values, infection control, ekg etc. Pretty much a little bit of everything. I used Kaplan, but only the book that had the strategies, review and 265 practice questions which I just borrowed from my local library. I read the entire strategies and review, then after that I answered the questions probably 10-20 at a time, then I would read through the rationales and write down the important things that I can just go over again. So that is what i did for all 265, i pretty much finished that after 5 days. I also used the Lacharity book for the prioritizations and delegations, this really helped me in my exam because all throughout my exam the second time around I had a lot of prioritizations. I also borrowed this book from my local library. I didn't get to finish through it since I couldn't renew it again since someone else had reserved it. So after that, I purchased Uworld (1month subcription) three weeks prior to my scheduled exam. When I took my first assesment I recieved a high chance of passing. I did 75 questions a day in tutorial mode. I would thoroughly read the rationales before I go into answering the next question. And pretty much i think that is the most important thing which is really understanding why the answer is the way they are. Because when you read through that rationale, you will get another question that is somewhat similar to that topic and you can apply that little bit of knowledge to answer that one question. The scores on Uworld really doesn't matter, what matter is that you understand those questions and answers after reading through the explanations. When I took my second try on the exam last Jan. 9th, I received questions that were similar to the ones in uworld but just reworded in a different way or was approached differently, however the overall content of the question was the same. And i was able to answer it because I knew the rationales for the choices of answers that were given. Best of luck to you when you take it again! :)

    January 2018 Nclex

    I took my NCLEX exam on January 9th, and I found out yesterday I passed! It was my second time to take the NCLEX, first time I failed at 81 questions last July 2017. But this time around I passed it at 265 questions in 5.5hrs. I also did the PVT 12 hours post my exam, I received the "good pop up", but wasn't really convinced that I really pass. So I had to wait for 48hrs in order for me to do the quick results to find out if I truly did pass or not. And thank God, I passed! I used UWorld, Lacharity, and the Kaplan book that had like 265 questions in it. I focused on the rationales (especially the ones in UWorld). When i took my exam there were questions that were so similar to the ones that were in Uworld. To those who has taken it and passed, congrats to all of you! To those who are about to take it pretty soon, just stay focus and understand those rationales really well!

    How to: Applying for the CGFNS CES

    For the authorization for verification of license, that form has to be sent to the PRC personally, because you need to request from them the Verification of License. So you go to PRC with that form, a copy of your license, and the form that your proctor signed during the board exam, and valid IDs and documentary stamp. Once you are in the PRC they will ask you to fill up another form and you give that to them along with the Authorization for Verification of License form that you Printed out from the CGFNS site. They will then process that and will contact you via email when the forms are ready to be sent. You will need to coordinate with a courier service (lbc or dhl) to have the forms picked up from PRC and they will be the one to send it to CGFNs. For the the verification of academic records, that printed form has to be brought to your school where you obtained your degree in. You will again request for your transcripts and the school will fill out the form you give them. The completed forms has to be in a sealed envelope with the school seal and they have to send it to CGFNS. You can ask the school if they can send it and you pay the fee, or you can take the envelope and take it to a courier service. Any high school diploma if you received your secondary education from the Philippines has to be sent out by you personally to CGFNS. After all of those required documents has been sent to cgfns, they will send that to the BON of NY.

    NCLEX application

    Oh ok! Thank you for the quick response. I was wondering how long did it took for your ATT to arrive?

    NCLEX application

    Hello! I'm in the process in applying for the exam through Continental Testing, all my CES evaluation has already been completed and CGFNS has forwarded the completed evaluation to IDFPR. But i am stuck in the application for the exam. Do i just fill out the four page application form, send that to them and do my finger print scan? Did you have to comply the CT-NUR and ED-NUR forms also? Or is that only applicable if you were educated in the US? I would really appreciate your answer, I'm just so confuse as to what I need to fill up and what needs to be sent to Continental Testing. Thank you so much in advance.

    Thank you so much for your response! Now I can finally start my application process! í ½í¸Š
  9. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if there is a limited time period after graduation that an individual should take and pass the Philippines NLE or the NCLEX RN? I am asking this question because I am a foreign BSN graduate from the Philippines, and I graduated March 2014. I am a dual citizen (Filipino and US) and I did not take the NLE. I am currently here in the US, and I have the option to take my NCLEX RN either here in Michigan or in Illinois, that is after completing all the necessary requirements. However, my concern is that currently processing those requirements takes money, and and I am not financially capable of doing it at the moment, and is something I am saving up for. And i wonder if the longer i put off taking the examination will make it harder for me in the future to actually take it? Because someone told me that my nursing degree will expire or will decrease my eligibility to take the NLE or the NCLEX Rn if i don't take it in a couple of years after graduation? I hope someone can enlighten me with my inquiries. Thank you!
  10. Hi everyone, I know there might be some similar threads regarding this issue, but from most of what I have seen were people seeking for NCLEX in CA. So anyway, my situation is this: I am a recent BSN graduate from the Philippines, i didn't take the local board, and i hold a dual citizenship (US and Fil). Currently I'm here in Illinois and is planning to take the NCLEX here, but the issue is that the BON here in Illinois is now requiring for foreign graduate nurses to be a local board passer from the country they have had their nursing training. I am just basically confuse about the entire process. Will i still need the local board even with my citizenship status and I have no plan in practicing my profession in the Philippines? or is it best that i go back to the Philippines and just take the local board exam?
