The visa bulletin for August 2010 released by the U.S. Department of State shows the cut-off date for Filipino Nurses at June 1, 2004. This is a major improvement considering that the July 2010 visa bulletin indicated a cut-off date of August 15, 2003.

The positive trend is expected to continue until October this year with cut-off dates expected to reach September 2004 as reported last month by Pinoy R.N.

In other news, the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) is providing options for foreign-educated nurses who were affected by the recent social security number (SSN) requirement.

According to the Hammond Law Group, an immigration firm in the U.S., affected applicants may request the BRN to provide the NCLEX test results to another U.S. state (such as one that does not require a social security number). This option requires a $10 processing fee. If, however, an applicant needs the BRN to provide the NCLEX-RN test scores to ICHP (CGFNS) for the Visascreen, the BRN will be collecting a $60 filing fee.

Top 3 Common Mistakes When Taking the NCLEX

Taking the NCLEX is not much different from taking any other kind of qualification exam. It may be tougher than other types of tests, but the bottom line is that it is a test, and whether you like it or not, you are bound to make some mistakes.

Awareness of the incorrect practices that are commonly engaged in by test takers will help you increase your chances of passing the NCLEX, though. As with most anything, knowledge and awareness will give you the chance to change your strategy as needed. Here are the 3 most common mistakes that are committed when taking tests.

1. Not practicing enough. Some test takers fall into the trap of merely reading and reading and reading some more. One important thing about taking tests is that you should actually do practice runs as much as you can. Nothing beats actually taking the test, but since you cannot take the NCLEX everyday, the next best thing is to do dry runs.

2. Not following directions. This is a no brainer, really. Instructions/directions are there for a reason, and every teacher/reviewer will always emphasize the importance of following them. Sad to say, many test takers still fail to follow instructions. If you do one thing when taking the NCLEX, make sure you understand the directions and that you follow them to a T.

3. Second-guessing your hunches. There are people who tend to over think, and more often than not, this results in incorrect answers. You are not expected to be 100 per cent sure of your answers in the NCLEX, but if you find yourself over thinking an item, go with your hunch.

Do you tend to make these mistakes? Take a step back and assess yourself. Knowing your weak spots might just help you jump this hurdle called the NCLEX.

Did you know?
ALLGEN NCLEX Review offers unlimited access to online materials, which include practice tests. These tests will be very helpful in preparing you for the actual test!
