NCLEX-RN Information- ALL ABOUT ELIGIBILITY
Well recently we received an email from an avid follower of PinoyBSN. First of all together with the rest of the administrators thank you very much for your support. And we are very glad that we could be of help in giving you the latest issues and information concerning nurses. In the name of helping and giving information I am here to answer some of common NCLEX- RN Questions.
First of all, I would just like to correct that AUTHORIZATION TO TEST (ATT) is given by PEARSON VUE the one facilitating the NCLEX-RN exam. So what I think was meant is the fastest way to get ELIGIBILITY because before you can even get your ATT you need to have an eligibility.
Anyways, VERMONT and NEW MEXICO are considered the fastest. One reason would be because its location is not much of a popular choice for Filipinos to get their initial licensing up until now. In some forums and feedback from friends, New Mexico can release ELIGIBILITY as soon as 3 weeks. The longest to release would be CALIFORNIA since they do all the job unlike the other states who hires the services of companies like the CGFNS which gives way to CES and CVS evaluation. And since most of the US States removed the CGFNS Certification/ Exam the CES and CVS kind of covers for that with its detailed evaluation of your credentials.
Eligibility can really vary from one person to the other. Aside from the process of the state in which you are applying to also take note of the bulk of those applying for each state. California is a popular choice since most Filipinos have relatives in that area.
Also, make sure that when you submit your documents all the information or areas to be filled out are completed. Lesser errors and mistakes means lesser chances of having your application delayed.
Trying to follow up your application also helps to identify if there are any discrepancies or missing and lacking information. But do not also bombard the Board as this also delays your processing. Also try looking in to the FAQ's area of their site to answer some of your questions.
Joan's Notes: All information were based from different sources such as reading materials, seminars, forums etc. For your own verification please try to visit and ask others re such matter. For those who have questions feel free to email me at email@example.com and I shall do my best to answer your queries and post it here on the web.
