Where to Submit International Diploma Verification- DFA or PRC

Posted

International RN graduate from the Philippines here. I have re-applied recently in CA-BON form NCLEX-RN since my initial application expired back in 2019. I have received the International Diploma Verification form from the Board of Nursing. When I called BON this morning, I was informed that this form has to be submitted to DFA. I spoke with my nursing school and they informed me that it should be submitted to PRC. Anybody knows where to send this to in the Philippines. I am currently in California and currently seeking to complete my requirements. Anybody who can shed light is greatly appreciated.

I eventually didn’t have to go through international diploma verification. My evaluator approved my valid Philippine license in lieu of this form. Search DFA Apostille.  I heard that’s how people get this form done.

Hi.

Thank you for your reply. It's good to know that you didn't have to go through with the diploma verification. Did you write to your analyst? I also send  a valid philippine license, oh I hope my analyst will waive this requirement.

Hi.

I submitted a request to my school and my school did the CAV-CHED and DFA Apostille. It's still in process though. It depends on your school if they will do everything, but if not, apply to your school for your diploma then go to CHED for the CAV (certification, authentication and verification) and after to DFA for the Apostille. Hope this helps.

I am not a registered nurse in the Philippines. I received an international diploma verification form as well. I’m confused tho because I thought that form is only for registered nurse.?

Hi.

You said that you were not a registered nurse from the Philippines and you're applying for NCLEX RN. Where did you study nursing?

If you're an internationally educated nurse I  know that  Ca BRN requires an international diploma verification to sit NCLEX RN. For the Philippines you have to go to DFA (dept of foreign affairs for the verification).

Hi,

I studied and a graduate as BSN in the Philippines. I’m just confused because the form said “where you registered as a professional nurse”..
