Shrijana Dhakal, an IUBAT BSN alumna, recently wrote to the faculty about her initial struggles and her eventual success in America.
Shrijana writes: “I came to the United States on March 11th, 2013, and at that time I did not yet have my RN license. Despite my predicament, however, I persisted in seeking a position in different states. Although I received disapproving responses from many states, I finally obtained a positive response from the Texas Board of Nursing. From that starting point, I sought the services of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS), who requested the necessary documents directly from IUBAT. After getting my Credentials Evaluation Service (CES) report from CGFNS, I was eligible to write the NCLEX exam, which is the official examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States. I wrote and passed the exam in 75 questions on June 21, 2014! I was able to succeed in this process only due to support and help from Dr. Karen Lund, Rabiul, and my family and friends.”
Thanks for sharing your update from America, Shrijana, and congratulations on your great news!
