          Hello can u telll me if i can also take the exam i was graduated in the philippines what are those requirement .is it required to passed the exam in the philippines first.?

  6. Cathymark says:

    Applying to NCLEX is not like 2 years ago. There are many changes and more complicated to apply. Once you commit a mistake, it will cost you a lot of money. I applied California by myself 3 years ago and i failed, now i tried to apply by my self in Illinois and soo difficult and the instructions in the website is confusing and i don’t even know where to process the finger print card etc and.. I think it would  be better for me if someone will handle my application so i dont need to worry..also i am working and soo terrible to contact the Illinois BON.about the status of my application. they do not answer the phone..and they do not reply to your email..

  10. albert says:

    I think the only easiest and hass-free way to apply to NCLEX is by using a professional service unless you want to do it all by yourself and take risk instead of let the people who has been doing for years to handle it. LEts face it. 50 different states 50 different ways to apply nclex! As far as i know NEAC Nurse Exam Application Center assisted more than 10,000 nurses to get licensed in the States.

    hi, para sa lahay po,
    saan po ba pwd magtake ng nclex exam dito sa pilipinas? mag kanu pa ba ito? at pano rin po ba mag take ng exam na ito?? pls, help me.

  18. NEAC says:

    Starting April 26, 2010 California requires U.S SSN, if you applied in April, your application will be sent it back to you. If you do not hold a U.S SSN, please be advised to apply to other states.

  19. Joel says:

    Just want to ask if US social security number is required.i passed my application last year but it was returned to me together with a not from california board of nursing requiring the US social security number

  20. Monskie says:

    @Peng – Infortunately, California BON will not allow you to retake the exam without SSN. You may start considering to retake it in Vermont, New Mexico and New York states. They do not require SSN and CGFNS cert. BUT, they are requiring international RN graduates to submit CES (Credential Evaluation Service/ Professional course by course credential evaluation from CGFNS office). Pls note note that if you failed the NCLEX 2x, you must take a formal NCLEX review course to retake the NCLEX.

  21. peng says:

    GOOD DAY…i just to ask regarding SNN. i took my nclex exam last dec2009 but unfortunately i failed. i plan to re apply this year but a freind told me that SNN is req. does this new req. applies in my case?i am re -applying for cali…kindly help..thnx

  22. NEAC says:

    You need not to worry your eligibility since you already have your ATT. Your need to take the exam WITHIN the ATT validity. There will be no extension for your ATT so make sure to take the exam before it expire.

  23. roselle valencia says:

    hi i just wanna ask,my registration eligibility was issued last dec 2009 and im planning to take the exam this coming feb 2012 my ATT will expire 2012.Im just worried that they might closed my account since it was noted that after 2years the file will be closed.will there be a problem…please answer my concerns coz im worried otherwise i would have to take the exam before dec 2011….thank you so much.

    just want to ask guys regarding the requirements of vermont NCLEX actually some of my credentials were already available since 2008, like my TOR and RLE hours, can I still use this..because i remembered last year they added some requirements like PRC verification which I dont have, I am not currently in PHILs. .Many thanks

  33. cathuy says:

    @Thesa: Northern Marianas is very difficult to contact and THEY DO NOT accept money draft payment from Philippine bank. They only accept U.S money order. It means all international applicants cannot apply to Northern Marianas if you do not have U.S money order as your payment. You may got lucky if you can contact them. I advise to write a letter to them and thats the only way to communicate with them.

  34. ALMA SCANLON says:

  37. NEAC Experts says:

    ATTENTION: CABON Now Requires SSN to apply for NCLEX.

    CABON Now Requires SSN to apply for NCLEX.

    Effective on April 26, 2010 California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) will no longer accept applications that do not contain a U.S. Social Security Number. The Nursing Practice Act provides for a unified examination and licensing application. Once an applicant passes the examination, a license is automatically issued. Under these circumstances the BRN cannot accept applications for the examination and licensure without a U.S. social security number.

    For those applicants who have failed the exam and want to re-apply; CABON will not accept re-application without U.S Social Security Number.

    If your application was sent prior to April 26, 2010 or if you are already eligible, THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU.

    what are the requirements?

  40. RACHELLE says:

    guys..try an application center to help with the processing of ur nclex!!!!no hassles and they will do it all for are provided with the requirements to get and they’ll be the one to process it..of course with reasonable price.try NEAC…

  41. Jakob says:

    amy, it depends on what state you are applying to since all the states have different fees and such.

    My friend applied before me and her application was cheaper but the state changed it’s requirements so then I had to do extra steps.

    It’s better to just go to NEAC and let them help you with all those questions, they even updated me when the state changed requirements in the middle of my application; you can’t get that from the board of nursing!

    When I went, Kristine helped me in Manila; she’s really nice and helpful.

    how to apply nclex

  89. lloyd says:

    – don’t forget the copy of your license card! ciao!

  90. lloyd says:

    – go to the BON website of the particular US state that you want to work in and download the application forms, also fill-up the request for fingerprint card
    – submit the “school request application forms” (round 3-4 pages from the downloaded forms) to your school registrar together with your copy of TOR, rle summary, and diploma (for authentication, for those who are not yet a registered nurse)
    – fill-up the rest of the application forms
    – go to NBI and have your fingerprint card marked if you already received it (1-2 weeks after you requested it)
    – avail a bankdraft of $107 to your respected banks and address it to the registered BON of your US state
    – write a letter of explanation why you aren’t a registered nurse in the philippines, if you aren’t yet
    – produce a 2×2 passport-style white bg photo
    – gather all the requirements and mail it to your US state BON via LBC or any delivery services
    – READ THE APPLICATION FORMS and everything i forgot and eveything you need to know is in there
    – good luck nurses!
