    Can I ask for your opinion Miss Suzzane4?.....

    If in case it's been more than 6 weeks from the time CA BRN mailed my eligibility to the Philippines (I'm from Manila), does CA BRN still know the status of my mail? If they do, is it okay to ask them thru email or phone regarding the status of my mail? Like I said in my previous post, I'm getting paranoid since I've experienced losing an important document thru the mail before.
    Why do you need this letter of eligibility? If you know that they have accepted and approved your application for licensure, then you just need to register with Pearson-Vue for the exam. There is nothing that the letter is going to mean for you or that it can do. The ATT is actually sent out by Pearson-Vue.

    Letters are never sent with tracking forms, they are at the beck and call of the postal service. So no one has any idea of any letter that is ever sent unless additional fees are paid for this service or a courier service is used. And for this type of letter, nothing extra is ever used. No reason for it.

    Just go to Pearson-Vue and register with them. If they permit you to schedule a date and give you the list of dates that are available, you will know that the eligibility has been received by Pearson-Vue. And that is the only place that needs to receive it.

    Best of luck to you.

    Not sure why you would want to go through Ca when we are advising not to, you are going to find it will take many years to get a visa allowing you to work in the US and Ca will destroy your file and NCLEX results if they do not have a SSN within 3 years and yes you may be lucky apply and be granted an extension but it isn't a guarantee

    They can be sent in the same courier envelope.
    so if i can send it in the same courier envelope, should i use my name for the senders name? i believe i read somewhere in the ca bon website that they wont be accepting school documents given to applicants.. so im confused if sending sealed school documents in behalf of the school falls under this rule...

    As long as the envelope is sealed and has the school mark on it then you shouldn't have any issues if sending it yourself

    All I can ask is why? With everything that we have told you and the fact that the letter will be destroyed in three years and you will be starting the process all over again from scratch for another state or even CA. Why would you want to go this route when it is not going to help you and you will not be considered a licensed US RN?

    This just makes no sense at all to me or anyone else.

    I have already told you that it could be sent in the same courier envelope, not sure why you are posting the same question again as well. Much has already been written on this very topic, if you would only take the time to do some reading on it. It can save you hundreds of dollars and much grief.

    Remember that you will be waiting a month plus to receive your results, and sometimes letters get lost in the mail as well.

    All we can add is that CA has accepted them in the past when they were in a sealed envelope sealed by the university, however, they are free to change this at anytime. With all of the issues with documents coming out of the Philippines, they can easily change it.

    Perhaps you should just take the paid courier envelope to your university and have them send it on for you, then there is no issue with it.

    hi suzanne! i received my eligibility letter from CA Dec. 24, 2007, would that mean that my eligibility letter will expire this Dec. 24, 2008? and all will be forfeited?
    I would like to take my NCLEX by next year, would that mean i have to register before Dec. 24 to Pearsonvue already and pay for the $200?

    I hope you can help me

    Should state on letter how long eligibility is for, if 12 months and expires in a couple of weeks then yes unless you want to reapply again and pay fees you will need to register with pearsonvue and pay. Usually ATT is valid for 90 days so you have time to review and book.

    At the end of the day you have to decide on what you want to do
