I graduated my BSN 2008 and took my licensure exam in my country same year and passed. I did not practice my profession after that. So now after almost 6 years I am trying to get my NCLEX. I'm waiting for my papers to be evaluated by ERES since I studied outside the US. Now I'm really confused where to start and what to do first. I already spoke to Texas BON but the one in charge with my case is not available and did not get a complete info. The one I spoke to only said, since I didn't practice and no nursing experience I need to get a refresher course. So now after my papers is being evaluated and submitted to Texas BON what to do next??? Will they send me a note? Receipt? Permit? Can I work as an intern instead of taking a refresher??? Atleast I get paid as an intern while for the refresher course we need to pay $2,500-$3,000 and aside from that we need to pay some fees to take the NCLEX exam and review. I am really confused right now.. Is there someone here same situation as mine.. Please I need help..
