State that doesn't require studying again before working

Posted

Can you let me know the different states where I can apply for NCLEX without requiring me to study first?

What do you mean doesn't study... like international graduate?

/username, BSN, RN

Specializes in Critical Care.

What's your question? Are you from outside the us? do you have a 4 year degree?

The OP is probably referring getting denied from taking the NCLEX-RN in CA due to the concurrency issue that has affected and stranded well over 7,500 students from the Phils.

Mind you, that this ruling from 1987 and other minimum educational requirements does also affect many other students and nurses coming in from other countries as well: Canada, UK, AU, NZ, many European countries, Russia, India, etc.

Until those deficient courses are re-taken again, they will not be approved in the state of CA and there are others states as well.

More wealth of information can be found under the "World' section then under the "Nurse Registration" tab.
