Top 5 US State to Apply for NCLEX RN from the Philippines

If you are a Nurse from the Philippines and you are thinking to start on your NCLEX journey, the first thing you want to find out is what state you would want to apply. It does not necessarily mean that your chosen state will be the place you will be living or working. This is only the first step you would need to be able to take the NCLEX RN Exam.

Most of the State Board of Nursing requires that the applicant must have a Social Security Number and if you do not have one your options will be narrowed to few State Board of Nursing.

1. New York – New York State Education Department

Our journey begins today

By on September 22, 2017

ANurseDad has now officially transitioned to its new home, our very own domain, anursedad.com. After many years running on the free platform thru WordPress.com, we are now on our own! I am very happy and excited to bring you the latest updates that will help you on your journey towards your NCLEX goals.

ANurseDad started as a simple blog that was originally intended share his own struggles and journey in passing the much dreaded NCLEX-RN examination.Did you know that as an international NCLEX-RN test taker (outside USA graduate), we are already on the disadvantage? Based on the latest 2017 NCLEX statistics, international graduates taking the NCLEX-RN examination for their first time has 38% pass rate compared to US-educated NCLEX-RN first time test takers which has 88% pass rate.

I moved to the United States and started working as a Medical Assistant after I left my work and my life as a Registered Nurse from the Philippines in the year 2012. Moving on and forward in becoming a US Registered Nurse, I focused on: why NCLEX test takers fail? What is it that we have not done differently? As multiple-test-taker myself, I ask What are your career goals?

For those nurses who are planning take the NCLEX-RN as an international graduate, let ANurseDad.com join you and take this journey towards our goal. For those nurses that are presently working in a different field or working the healthcare as a Technician or Medical Assistant, ANurseDad.com has a lot of things to share with you all as well.

Focus on your goal and don’t lose sight of it. Say it, write it down and claim it! You too will become a USRN!
