Pinoy Nurses to Take NCLEX in Saipan Drops due to NCLEX Manila : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

Pinoy Nurses to Take NCLEX in Saipan Drops due to NCLEX Manila

· Filed Under In the news, work abroad 

Filipino nurses wanting to take the NCLEX had previously favored Saipan because of its close proximity to the Philippines and the less stringent visa requirement of the CNMI government compared with the U.S. immigration in Guam.

However, with the test now being offered in Manila came a proportionate drop in the number of Pinoy nurses coming to Saipan to take the test.

A total of 9,837 Filipinos took the National Council Licensure Examination from January to June 2008, a decrease of 107 from last year’s number of 9,944 during the same time, Ernesto Herrera, general secretary of the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines, said in a press statement.

The United States’ National Council of State Boards of Nursing board of directors chose Manila as an international NCLEX site in February 2007, following the Philippine government’s request to host the NCLEX.

The Marianas Visitor’s Authority tabulated that the number of Filipino tourists dropped from 516 in July 2007 to 171 in July of this year. MVA officials said the drop in numbers could be attributed to Manila now offering the test.
