NCLEX Update

The information regarding establishing Pearson Vue in the Philippines to deliver NCLEX examination locally is a much needed and much awaited process.

Currently, there is no official press release from NCSBN website announcing the initative. But I had spoken to a reliable source, from NCSBN that assured me that it has been approved. But no words on dates of implementation as yet.

As soon as I find out more details, I will keep you posted.


CGFNS Update

The recent development in regards to the retake of Test 3 & Test 5 is an unfortunate reality that we all have to deal with. On the other hand, I think it is not too late for us to rally support and let our concerns be known.

Dr. Morris has been busy calling all her contacts to get support. I am hopeful that a more favorable resolution may come out from the meeting with CGFNS. My heart goes out to those of you who have worked so hard and diligently to get this far.

Before giving you any feedbacks and recommendations, I had to speak to an immigration attorney to ensure I share with you accurate and applicable information.

You have asked how is the non-issuance of visa screening affect your opportunities to go to the US?

Answer: Visa screening is a very important document needed for immigration processing. If this document is not issued, you will not be able to come and work in the US.

Is NLE required to work in the US?
Answer: No, you may come to the US without a local board exam. Passing the NLE is not an immigration requirement. Although some employers may require that you pass your local boards.

If while in the US an employer decides to hire me, would visa screening still be required?
Answer: Yes, visa screening is required to be submitted by everyone.

Hope this helps. I will keep you posted if I have more details.



Hi Everyone!

Greetings from Little Rock. I came in last Wednesday and had an uneventful trip. I stayed home for a few days to get settled in. Hope you all have recovered from the Intensive Review brain overload.

Pls. see an email attachment forwarded to you (Pediatrics Module) as promised. Sorry for the delay. Pls. read my posting on the blogspot about my response regarding CGFNS.

I have been gathering some information and getting consultation from immigration lawyers on how to address the recent development. I will keep you posted as soon as the research is finalized.

Pls. email or inform me if you need consultation or assistance prior to your NCLEX exam. If your dates have not changed, I will mark the ones you have submitted on my calendar.

Regards and PAPASAKAYO!
