Hi my name is Johan, Im in a bit of a problem. Here it is i have daca and been accepted to the ADN program from lonestar college cyfair in houston tx, the problem is that they have told me that inorder to attend clinicalsi need to be a citizen, permanent resident, or have a f-1 student visa. once again i only have daca and i have not spoken to anyone at the school about it. Im afraid that they will reject me and give my spot to another student on the wait list. Im suppose to take a criminal backgroud check and get my finger prints taken. will anything about my immigration stus pop up in the background check? or will i be able to attend by just playing a fool and not mentioning to anyone? any help? ill like to find out as soon as possible so i can chage careers although i spent 2 years for this opportunity...

Contact an immigration attorney for advice. If you cannot prove the required immigration status your acceptance can be rescinded

Hi op, you mentioned you graduated 2 years ago and studied for 3 weeks to take the nclex. Do you mind sharing how you studied, or which resources you used?

The OP hasn't been on this site since June 2012....and graduated in 2009/10. The test has changed at least twice since then

I know this is kind of late but I wanted to post something about my situation since I had a hard time finding any information on this topic. I graduated from an ADN program in Georgia and didn't realize that I may not even be able to get my nursing license until after I graduated. It did take longer to get approved to test with DACA, even a couple of phone calls to the BON, but I was finally approved and passed my NCLEX last week:)

Hi! I am currently in the same situation. I recently graduated with my ASN and am realizing I may not be able to test in Georgia. I have emailed BON and submitted my application for licensure but I'm worried they will deny me due to DACA. How did you get approved? Any information would be so helpful

Hello Johan2 can I ask for an update on your situation ?... I myself also got accepted into an ADN program at San Jacinto College. Now im worried after reading this because they mentioned I need to fill out a form if you are not a U.S citizen and i think it said something about having a visa... Im worried I wont be able to attend clinicals and therefore not be able to be in the program because of it since I only have DACA 😭 but then again theres alot of people who ive read completed the program already with DACA

I know someone who has DACA and she was able to get his license without a problem and that's in Pennsylvania. Also, fyi, when we were about to graduate, the school gave us a paper to fill up for NEV and there was no question about immigration status. This also goes for NCLEX application for PA BON. Seems like they just need a SSN and and ID.

Hi, well I filed out the paperwork that i needed and turned it in to the office. I sent them several emails asking them if the paperwork was ok, if they needed anything else, if I was going to be able to go to clinical and they never replied ! However, clinical time came around and they didn't say anything about it so I guess everything was OK and I'm currently in clinical right now.

Good for you! Anyone who have DACA have you ever tried to endorse to another state?? If so, what was the process?? Was it difficult??

hi, I'm in the same situation, I have DACA and I graduate next week from an ADN program in georgia. I also didn't realize about the nclex requirements until last semester, but I kept pushing through when I saw this comment, it gave me hope. what was the process like for registering for nclex? did you follow the process as normal or did you have to bring it to the attention of the BON? also what kind of identification did you bring to the testing center, just a drivers license or a passport also? any information would be greatly appreciated, this has me extremely stressed...thanks!!
