Saipan NCLEX Application for Licensure

saipan board of nursing nclex applicationInternational nurses who wish to apply for NCLEX with minimal requirements can have it at Saipan Board of Nursing, also known as Commonwealth Board of Nurse Examiners in Northern Marianas Islands.

If you want to process Saipan NCLEX Application for Licensure, please take note of the following points:

  • Saipan Board does not require local license.
  • They don’t require third party credential evaluation like CES.
  • They don’t have fingerprinting requirements.
  • Payment of $110 must be in form of US cashier’s check, US money order or US bank drafts, payable to CBNE or Commonwealth Board of Nurse Examiners.

Saipan NCLEX Application steps, requirements

Saipan NCLEX Application can be divided into three packets: Application, Nursing Education, High School transcript. Each of these packets must be mailed to the Board separately. Application forms and RLE certification can be downloaded from Saipan Board of Nursing website.

Application Packet
Print the downloaded application form in one page, back to back. Include 2 copies of 2×2 photos signed in front, with 1 copy pasted on the box provided. Submit certified true copy of Birth Certificate, and Marriage Contract if applicable. Notarized the application form, attach your payment and send it to:
Commonwealth Heatlh Corporation,
Administration Bldg.
PO BOX 501458
Saipan, MP 96950
Tel: (670) 236-8250

Nursing Education Packet
Print the Certification of RLE form. Bring it to your nursing school for completion, and then request your Transcript of Records and RLE Summary. Enclosed in a signed/sealed school envelope, this packet must be mailed to Saipan separately.

High School Transcript
Request your High School transcript (Form 137 in the Philippines) and have your school send it to Saipan.

Processing of your Saipan NCLEX Application could take 1-2 months or even longer depending on the volume of applicants. Saipan will then send you letter of approval/eligibility if you are approved to take the NCLEX. You can then register at Pearsonvue for $200 for the issuance of NCLEX ATT. Then you can schedule and take the NCLEX at any Pearsonvue testing center around the world.

    hi good day! i want to clarify something about the nclex application for saipan. under the nursing education packet, should this be mailed by my school with their seal on it or can i mail this myself? pls advise thank you…

    • nclex says:

      the school should mail that…but if they return it to you sealed, then you send it separate from your application to make it appear that the school sent it. :)

  2. Theresa says:

    Hi, i would like to ask if, I will apply for LPN and RN , I am a graduate of BSN, Will it be needed for 2 appliction & 2 requirements ., or could it be in one application and 1 requirement go together?

    Hi.. I have a question… wat if I’m already in saipan and I have my RLE summary and everything… but this RLE Form Doc47… do I still need it? I cant contact my school in phil…

    • nclex says:

      yes, that’s needed.

      • Devendra says:

        I have this recurring dream that some day, GMAC will psiublh an Official Guide that will cater to the entire spectrum of students taking the GMAT (from those aiming a score in the low 500s to those aiming in the high 700s). Alas, if you aim to be in 96 percentile or above, then nothing has changed. I’d stick my head out and venture that the book’s still not good enough to get you into the 700s. Unless you are one of those GMAT pingers’ keep taking (pinging) the GMAT every few months and hope that you miraculously cross that magic number. FWIW, my review of this book is strictly addressed to the crowd that aspires to get 700+.Problem Solving: The psiublhers have tried to up the game in this edition but it’s still not good enough. Don’t be thrown off by marketing terms like ‘20% new material’, etc. Remember it’s quality over quantity. Most of the problems are still very easy and straight forward. Don’t expect to encounter the same level of questions in the exam (especially, if you are tracking higher).For e.g; problem #s 28 and 61 are deceptively simple. You would be tracking a score in the 400s if you’d ever see one of these problems in the exam! Unless I somehow missed it, I didn’t a single Permutation and Combination question in this section.Data Sufficiency: GMAC ups the game in this section and you can see discernibly harder problems. But the jury’s still out whether the caliber of questions is good enough to prepare for the actual exam. Even the GMAT Prep software has much harder problems than these.Verbal: A lot of new passages in the Critical Reasoning section. I see a new emphasis on the question type Which of the following ‘. Sentence Correction remains the same, albeit with some newer questions. But the explanations still s()ck and everyone’s invariably going to gravitate toward the MGMAT SC book. Dude, where are the subjunctives?Integrated Reasoning: This is the new section. The format of the exam changes this June. The book has an overview of the concept but there are no questions here. The back of the Guide has instructions on to access these questions from the GMAC website.On a silly note, I noticed that the psiublhers of this book switched the printing from black ink (OG 12th Ed.) to a darker shade of gray ink in this edition. Which genius at Wiley decided that this was a cool idea we will never know. Maybe, it’s meant to deter piracy (scanner unfriendly), save cost on the ink, etc. The conspiracy theorist in me says that it was a deliberate move probably, the ink starts fading faster, thereby, killing the re-sale value of the book. All in all, I’m not a big fan of this move.Verdict: Irrespective of what most reviewers say, everyone is going to purchase this book (and GMAC knows that). I only wish that the book had questions of the level that you’d typically encounter in the exam.

  8. Christian Ivan Naguit says:

    Would you be so kind to confirm if Saipan Board of Nursing has another email address? I have tried so many times to contact this email address but unfortunately there is always an error that is why I was unable to deliver my message regarding the update of my endorsement. However, I received a message from Ms. Fleming last 08 Jan 2013. That is the last time I was able to contact her. Please advise.

    I am looking forward to your message and thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,


    • nclex says:

      I’ve also tried emailing them but it appears that their email quota has been consumed, hence the error message. Try calling them by phone. What’s your concern by the way?

  9. john salditos says:

    i tried all the numbers to get a hold of CBNE to clarify about the payment for nclex application, finally i got one number ringing the 670 2332263.. answering machine answered saying that they dont accept calls and they should only be email and when i try sending them an email an error keeps on appearing and wont push through.. im currently staying here in the philippines and i have 2 application for NCLEX with different type of instruction of payment.. 1. payable to “CBNE in Us postal money order or cashier’s check from US bank” 2.payable to “CNMI treasury in US postal money order, cashier’s check or Bank Drafts for foreign applicants… On top of that CBNE does not accept Bank drafts, nor Non-US bank checks and money orders… my questions are.. which application should i follow regarding the payment?? is there any other way i can make the payment for my application using a NON-US bank here in the philippines?? can i use Western Union MOney order?? and my application form of Certificate of RLE (Doc 47) was left behind can the school still send to for follow through?? i would really appreciate for your quick response to my problems.. thank you very much and god speed..

    • nclex says:

      1. correct payee names are CBNE or Commonwealth Board of Nurse Examiners
      2. No they don’t accept any payment form from the PH banks or Western Union.
      3. Yes, Doc 47 plus Transcript and RLE must come from school in one envelop.

  10. Diane says:

    Hi! I just called them and they already gave me update on my application. I suggest you better do the same if you already submitted all your requirements. This is the line i contacted them 670 2332263. Hope this one help.

    Thank NCLEX for patiently answering my question! Godd bless! :)

  11. benjamin says:

    hi! what is the difference between initial license examination fee & initial licensure with nclex score transfer fee? Which one should I need to pay for application of license by examination? Thanks!

    • Nclex says:

      If you already passed the nclex from other states like cali but without license yet, you go with nclex score transfer. but if you havent taken the nclex yet, go with initial application.

  12. john salditos says:

    i just called CBNE (2332263) and i talked to carol flaming and told her about my payment concern. she told me that any bank will do here in the PH as long as they can cash it in any US banks.. Money order from western union will also do.. Thanks for answering my questions NCLEX..

    • Nclex says:

      Are you sure with that john? Because that’s really how we used to pay for saipan application then, but since 2009 i think, saipan bon returned drafts, checks from ph banks even if it’s withrawable in US banks. I’ll contact them again to verify…

      • poohchim says:

        I talked to Ms. Fleming about the payment and she said they only accept payment coming from US banks and US money order. They cannot accept drafts that comes from thePhilippines. What i did was I sent $110 dollars to my friend and she converted it to money order, then she mailed it to CBNE Saipan.

      • Sidney says:

    Hello Ms. Arley, Good day! I already submitted my initial application for my NCLEX exam. For my Nursing Education Packet is still on the process, while my Highschool Transcript is already on its way to CBNE. My questions are: 1. Will you just notify me through emaill once all the 3 Packets already received from your office?
    2. Would you consider if the Sender of my Highschool Transcript was my mother’s name ? She mistakenly wrote it and she was the one who applied it on my behalf for I am currently living in Florida USA.
    3. If ever I was approved to take the NCLEX exam and received ATT, do I have to contact the State where I want to work? What are next steps that I need to do? Thanks so much and hoping for your immediate kind response on this matter.

  50. lecel says:

    Is it possible to submit all 3 packet in one envelop? Because my friend said it is like that..together with in the application envelop the tor and form 137 fromhs?

    • iztin3 says:

      some has done that, but its better to play safe. You’ll never know when the application is considered or not. The instruction says that the documents from the school must be mailed directly from the institution. So TOR must be from the college institution(sealed and stamped), as well as the HS documents must be from the HS institution (sealed and stamped as well). However, you can mail it yourself, but better separate each documents, to pretend that the institution mailed it (not you). Make sure, its sealed and stamped =)

  51. Boi says:

    I am confused with this ” Work employment verification/certification must be submitted if applicant graduated more than five (5) years from the date of application.” Do we need to submit Doc 28? if yes, how much is the fee? Thanks!

    • Athena says:

      Work employment verification/certification must be submitted if applicant graduated more than five (5) years from the date of application. -per CNMI BON website. Therefore you need to submit Doc28. The fee here refers to the licensure fee which is $110.

  52. Kristine May says:

    Reinerio Alba Cabangbng nope… you have to obtain that from the school.
