NCLEX, in Manila finally!

The news today about the opening of the NCLEX testing center in Manila is the best news we've received in a long time. The NCSBN, in a press release, said the Manila center will begin accepting calls on Friday, July 13, NCLEX applicants who already have their ATT can start scheduling their exam dates this Friday, but actual exams will only begin on Aug. 23.

I've e-mailed NCSBN to ask additional details about the Manila test center, hopefully they'll reply soon. Except for the start of scheduling and exam administration, the NCSBN press release contained little else. There were no details about the location of the testing center and the number of examinees it can accommodate in a day.

The testing center will be operated by the NCSBN's test service partner Pearson Vue. NCSBN said the center will have the same security systems as in other NCLEX testing centers.

In the past, there were reports that the NCLEX testing center would be located in the Enterprise Building in Makati. Some rumors say Subic is the likely site. I would bat for Enterprise, not only because of its accessibility but more because of the infrastructure. Except for a last-standing duty free shop, there's little hint left that Subic was formerly occupied by Americans.
