Answers to California NCLEX-RN Application Questions
You can go visit the NCSBN Review at their website Learning Extension most of their course offerings and prices are there.
In terms of printing the application form you need not print it back to back in separate sheets will do.
I am sorry but I am not quite familiar with the New Mexico Nursing Application. I do not want to give you wrong informations or misguide you since I haven't experienced first hand applying there.
I am not so sure what will happen when you register first in PearsonVue prior to applying to California BON. What exactly did you do when you registered in PearsonVue? Did you pay the registration fee? Because in my own understanding basically you register to inform them that you already got an eligibility from the state that you are applying. Try to contact PearsonVue to know the best thing to do with your situation.
The letter of explanation is just a letter addressed to the Board of Nursing telling that you do not have a license here in the Philippines or whatever reason you may want to say. The important thing is that you give them a letter and some really say that they do not intend to practice here in the Philippines that is why they do not have a license here. So to sum it up, if they do not see a copy of your license this might prolong the process of your application since they will write you a letter telling you to provide a copy of your license or a letter explaining why you do not have a license. So it is important to provide a letter regardless of your reason so your application process will not be delayed.
As for the money order I am not too familiar with the process here in the Philippines since in my case I have a family member there in the US and I had the manager's check done there. You can inquire in banks on how to go about the process and make sure the check is payable to BOARD OF REGISTERED NURSING. Also they DO NOT accept personal checks as far as I know.
First of all I take it that you have not applied to any state yet. Please DO NOT REGISTER IN PEARSON VUE not unless you received an eligibility from the state you applied in. Once you get your eligibility that is the time you register in PearsonVue. I am not sure what are the consequences if you do otherwise but just follow the process. You can change the state you applied in at the PearsonVue website. Since you said you already registered just log in with your username and password to access your information.
Please decide what state you really want to apply to in order to prevent further delays. Changing of state registered will cost you $50.
If that is what the disclaimer says then maybe a copy of your diploma will suffice just wait for the California BON if they will request anything more from you. You register in PearsonVue once you get a letter from California Board of Nursing saying that you are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam.
