hello everyone! nice to be here again...

i would like to ask something about nclex result to be transferred. my nclex result will be on its third year without me having a ssn yet ,,,well, firstly, because i am still in the philippines due to...my first agency was denied of its application and then,,the retrogression came...

now..the immigration bill is not on its foot yet..i am still in the philippines and there is a danger of losing the validity of my nclex result. as i have read... from this thread.....

ssn is required for the renewal. failure to renew does not necessarily mean that you will re-take nclex. i think the license, if not renewed, will become inactive and cannot be used.

before allowing a renewal, the bon may require that a refresher program be completed by nurses who have been away from nursing practice for some time. sometimes, a new background check and fingerprint check can be required by the bon. these entail expenses and payment of fees.

so...can anyone tell me how to and where to transfer my nclex results to another state and throw my worries away??? i just cannot go to the u>s> and have a ssn yet...help!!!

Moved your thread to the International Forum where it is more appropriate.

Now to answer your questions:

You cannot just transfer results, you must apply for licensure to the new state and use the License by Examnation process since you were never issued a license. You do not need to retake the NCLEX exam, get that idea out of your head. If your application with the BON expires after the 3 year waiting time for the SSN#, then you just need to reapply to them and submit another application.

The other issue is that sure you can go thru another state and their processing, but most states only have a two year time limit on the licenses that they issue and then require the SSN# to renew.

I would not bother with going thru the additional processing if you are going to work in CA. No reason to do it, CA is still not going to give you a permanent license until you have a SSN#. And wasting the money makes no sense at all.

suzanne, thank you for the reply once again.:confused:

i just need to clarify this...so, what you meant is, i would just be wasting time and money when i could just re apply to california board again just like applying for nclex the first time...in order for me to have another three safe yrs. .... are they going to allow this?

when can i start reapplying again? six months prior to expiration?

could you help me get a format for the reapplication of licensure by examination? or is it the same format that we have, like having to pay the 300+ dollars bank draft ? i could not remember anymore the process of the application for licensure by examination. is it gonna be that way again? except that i will not contact the pearsonvue anymore?:uhoh3:

You cannot apply to them until the three years is actually up. You cannot have two current files with them.

License fee application for CA has never been $300. Actually only about $80 US.

There is not one thing to be done until your application on file with them expires. And you will use the application that can be found on their website.

There are many rumors as well as false information floating around your country.

Adn there is no reason that you need to listen to one word of the information floating around there. Always check a source, if so, you could have checked with the BRN. It told you what to do. If an application expires or times out because of no SSN#, then you just submit an application again. No big issue at all.

so so true ms. suzanne! some agencies here in the philippines are providing wrong information under the guise that they were told by an "immigration lawyer" that there is little hope for nclex passers who applied under CA BRN because they would have to retake the exam again if they cannot provide a SSN within 3 years.

i've been telling friends and classmates who panicked because of this info about your advice (renewing application and NOT retaking nclex). problem is some of them do not believe me because the weight of an "immigration lawyer's" advice is heavier than a simple explanation derived from an internet nursing forum hehehe i emailed the CA BRN about this but still no response yet

as for me, i'm believing your advice/explanation...

thanks you ms. suzanne for your valuable inputs here in the forum!

Don't worry about them, they have their own lives to deal with. You should only be concerned with what you are doing.

Best and safest thing to do is before the three years are up, apply to another state that will issue a license without a SSN, and have CA submit your results to them. You will have to use the License by Examination application as there is no license to endorse.

But you will then have a license and will not have to retake the exam again. But I would not do it until at least 2 1/2 years have passed as most states do require the SSN# to renew a license and no sense in wasting extra money when you do not need to do so.

I do not recommend CA for initial licensure in the first place and this is even more reason not to go that route for those that have not started the process. There is a retrogression in place that we do not expect to finish for years due to the number of applicants that wishh to work in the US.

Barbie38 and Choco and others,

what did you do then? I am on the same predicament. My California NCLEX application is about to expire on April 2008. I have contacted my hospital's lawyer processing my papers and told me they would call the CA BON to ask for an extension. Has anyone of you have ever allowed their expiration date to be extended? I've read of a thread before but I'm not so sure since I'm just a lurker before... What can you say about this?

Never rely on an employer to make any adjustments for you for your licensing; it is your responsibility and yours alone.

CA and other states are always making changes to their requirements, and we are hearing that CA is even tightening theirs next week.

We are telling you to go ahead with licensure in another state, it is your choice as to what to do. Even if a hospital petitioned you, there is no guarantee at this time that they will have a job for you when you have a chance at a visa.

We are offering what to do based on experience of being here and working in the US for years and seeing what has happened.

Just noticed by one of your other posts that you have just had approval on the I-140, you are now behind the retrogression and even with passing of the NCLEX exam and even having an employer, you are looking at about five years for even a chance at a visa for the US. There is no way that you will be getting something in the next year or so, so recommend that you do what we are telling you to do in the other threads that you have posted to.

Thanks Suzanne! I am thinking about this and trying to figure out what to do next. I have 3 months to do extend or reapply. I am considering writing the CA BON myself for an extension, then once I have extended, I would do next is to transfer to another state so I have ample time to do it. What do you think about this? By the way, I really appreciate your suggestion and I look forward to hear from you. Thank you very much!
