Now its even easier for nurses to take the NCLEX exam. Last February 9, 2007, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) announced that it has selected Manila as a new site for administration of the NCLEX examination.
The announcement is a significant advancement for those who wish to obtain a visa to the United States as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse (LVN). Upon passage of the NCLEX examination, an RN or LVN may commence the application process to obtain a visa to the United States.
This is a tremendous to nurses because it will lessen the cost of taking the exam. Presently, the exam is administered in the following locations: United States; Guam; Saipan; London, England; Seoul, South Korea; Hong Kong; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, Canada; Frankfurt, Germany; Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Chennai, India; Mexico City, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan; and Chiyoda-ku and Yokohama, Japan.
