The National Council Licensure Examination or popularly known as the NCLEX is a nationwide exam for the nurse who intends to become a licensed nurse in the United States or in Canada. There are two types of examination: NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN. Passing the examination will result in the issuance of your license from a specific board of nursing where your application was submitted. The NCLEX-RN will be for those who intend to become a registered nurse and NCLEX-PN will be for those who want to become a registered practical nurse.
There are 50 states in the USA and there are 55 state boards. For the internationally-educated nurse, one must comply with the necessary documents to be approved for the application. Different boards of nursing will have their respective requirements. It is important to know if one is eligible to proceed with the application prior to the submission of the requirements to avoid costly mistakes and to avoid wasting your hard-earned money.
IPASS Processing has assisted thousands of nurses in the application of NCLEX-RN. We also provide assistance for the NCLEX-PN licensure examination.

“In March 2020, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia transitioned to an outcomes-based assessment (OBA) for IQNMs who hold a qualification that is relevant but not substantially equivalent or based on similar competencies to an Australian approved qualification (and who demonstrate they meet the mandatory registration standards). This replaced the need for new referrals to bridging programs.
The NMBA undertook an extensive research project to explore the factors and requirements to establish an OBA which made recommendations that:
*the overall assessment process includes both a cognitive and behavioural component
*the cognitive assessment must be passed before the behavioural component is attempted, and
*an orientation program is established to orientate nurses and midwives to working in the Australian healthcare context,” NMBA.

USA Score Transfer application is almost the same with license endorsement in the sense that a nurse applying for this procedure will have another license from another jurisdiction. The difference though is that it will be the NCLEX scores coming from the initial state boards which will be transferred to another state board.
The processing timeframe and the processing fee will vary depending on which state board the initial license will be transferred. With the NCLEX score transfer procedure, the initial license will no longer be active. This process is usually advised by the recruitment agency when it has already determined the state where the nurse will be deployed.
License Renewal can be done every 2 years depending on the Board of Nursing regulations. In order to work in the United States, they need to acquire an active license.
Each state’s BON establishes the specific procedures you must follow for the periodic renewal of your nursing license.
It is important to note that the initial license may not have the 2 years or 3 years validity period because a specific state board follows certain procedures in relation to the validity of your initial license. It is highly recommended to maintain an active license and to renew the license in a timely manner. Renewing an expired license will be more expensive.
License by endorsement is a procedure to acquire authority to practice as a nurse in another state not of where one was initially licensed. It will be done for those nurses who are licensed to work as Registered Nurses within the United States but are applying for licensure to be eligible to work in another state or jurisdiction.
The RN License Endorsement Application is normally comprised of the accompanying stages:
This process is usually advised by the recruitment agency when it has already determined the state where the nurse will be deployed. The processing timeframe and the processing fee will vary depending on which state board the initial license will be endorsed.
Unlike the initial application for the license through examination or the NCLEX, the applicant who wishes to be assisted for license endorsement will no longer sit for the exam. The status of both states will remain to be active.
IPASS Processing has assisted thousands of nurses for the license endorsement application. A huge number of endorsed licensed are to the states of Missouri, Tennessee, Texas, New York, North Carolina, Illinois, and many other state boards.

Visascreen is a comprehensive screening service for medical professionals. This screening process is required to be completed before a foreign national healthcare worker can receive either a permanent or temporary employment visa.
VisaScreen processing can only be started if a nurse already passed the NCLEX examination or has passed the CGFNS Qualifying Examination. For a foreign medical technologist, one must have also passed their United States Licensure Examination which is the ASCP or the ASCPi.
The Visacreen certificate is not state-specific. It means to say that you can use your VisaScreen Certificate regardless of which state in the USA one will be deployed by his/her recruitment agency. The processing timeframe for the procedure varies on which board of nursing/licensing authority issued your license. It is valid for 5 years too. This document must be presented by the healthcare professional during his/her USA embassy interview.
IPASS Processing has assisted thousands of nurses and medical technologists for the application of the Visascreen.
“Thank you so much IPASS Processing and team! From my NCLEX application, license endorsement, VisaScreen, and NMI license renewal, you are there all the way. I never expected that my NMI license will be renewed in less than 3 months. I thought I had to wait for 4-6 months. Once again, thank you.” Joan Ong, RN, NCLEX-Passer
