How to apply for NCLEX exam in the Philippines

We have received so many comments on our NCLEX in the Philippines posts located here and here asking how to apply and what are the requirements for taking the NCLEX. This prompted us to make our own little research on this matter.

Just read the information that you will find on those web sites carefully and thoroughly and you’ll be the taking the NCLEX exam in no time.

    Please email me your reply at

  • lloyd

    - 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!

  • Jakob

    I used the nclex center on Espana at st. thomas square.

    They do everything for my ces and my application for Florida.

    They did all the forms and everything, all I had to do was pass documents and complete a few short papers in their office.

    they have a website too at where I could log in and check the status of my application.

    The person who helped me was kristine, she’s really nice and professional.

  • twinkle

    i apply in NEAC.. call them at 238-2647

  • raymond

    yeah i agree with you i apply my own application then i received a letter from BON then they said that i my mga lacking requirements ako kac im a US citizen.i was like what! i fill up the form sobrang daming mali.then i went to NEAC for assistance then after a few days naging eligible na thankful talga promise.

  • Xee

    really guys?wow coz its really a big help for me then coz im planning to take NCLEX by next year.i should visit that center then for a help.whats there number?im from manila

  • Jakob

    Xee.. the website has infos.

    I visit the center in manila, it’s in st. thomas square near PRC
    The number I have is 734-1426

  • sandra

    hi jakob.can i have the land-line number of that center?what’s there website?

  • amy

    how to apply NCLEX in the philippines and how much it will cost.tnx

  • Jakob

    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.


    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…

    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.

    For assistance with your NCLEX application or for information on how to change your application to another state, please contact us using the information below.

    NEAC is a professional NCLEX Application Center, please visit our offices for free consultation on NCLEX fees and steps required for the state of your choice.

  • Thesa

    my cousin and i are applying the nclex exam at northern mariana.we send the application form together with the other personal documents as well as the school documents via the express mail,will it be accepted since it was not sent via registered mail?
    please i need the answer as soon as possible…thank you


  • cherry

    I applied for California and is suppose to take the exam here in the phils. I have not schedule for the exam .my ATT is valid until aug 31,2010 ….can i still extend? what is the process?
    please advice.thank you



  • cathuy

    @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.

  • avril

    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

  • roselle valencia

    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. Im in Saudi arabia right now

  • NEAC

    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.

  • peng

    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

  • Monskie

    @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.

  • Joel

    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

  • NEAC

    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.

  • albert

    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.

     i applied the nclex myself. as with the rest of the nurses i know. its better to apply directly. there are guide per state on how to apply for one

  • Cathymark

    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..

  • PepeMan
