    hi, what school are you planning to retake your deficient hours and what are the prerequesites? Do you mind posting which schools are available in SoCal? Thanks
    i'm frm socal too. psych nsg is my deficient. all the schools listed on the rn.ca.gov are ok. the problem is not all of them accept make up class that we need. if you dont like private schools, you might find your luck in city colleges. i emailed a few dean/directors of nsg schools in my area they all said they dont recognize such program. but there's one in san diego that offers make up class i just cant remember the name. it was posted on one of the threads here. if you're close to LA or Orange county you might want to consider cerritoos college. They call it "Option F Program" or those that have BRN referral letter. Prerequisites are Nsg 26 & Nsg215. Just visit their website for more info.

    Yup, thanks. I was able to find out about those two schools online. Its a Grossmonth, they don't have the same prerequisites as Cerritos. Wish there was a closer school to Western Los Angeles, though. Guess we just have to make sacrifices to earn that licencense I haven't actually received the letter telling me to make up a class, but I'm interested to know what actually is wrong with our psychiatric nursing that they usually point out? I heard from one that lecture and clinicals are not concurrently taken and that some don't have enough clinical exposure.

    Hello, When did you graduate from your nursing program? A friend of mine also graduated from Iloilo doctors' college in 2010. And after a long process, the BRN recently told her she has a deficiency in her psych hours also =/. I'm trying to figure a way to help her.

    Just to update you guys in this post, I am no longer enrolling in a nursing school because I was already eligible.

    First of all, do not enroll in a college, that should be your last resort unless everything fails. I was hopeless too because she kept on saying no and won't even tell me what I lack.
    The best thing that you can do is to know if anybody in your school was made eligible that would be your leverage. Because that was what I did, my schoolmates had been eligible and I was denied, until a classmate of mine, same school and same clinical rotation got eligible. I called the license anlayst and told her about it, gave her the name, she checked it and said okay I'm good.
    Her reason to me was as I remember but not sure about the words "I didn't know that the Philippines has a different curriculum than California, I was basing it in the California educational requirements, it was just now that I was updated. I'm sorry for the hassle and I will be sending your eligibility letter soon." And one week later, I was eligible. A lot of people actually had a problem with that analyst and ended up enrolling in a school. After what happened to me, I told all my schoolmates about it, and they called in and they were made eligible too.

    Always remember guys, you have finished a four year course in Nursing, and I'll mention again, some analysts are not updated yet about the difference of the California curriculum with foreign countries. They're not supposed to evaluate your education using the California curriculum.

    Do not give up. Do not enroll in a college and study for 1 year just for the deficiency. Because I myself was in the situation and fought for my right to be eligible without needing to enroll to nursing school here in the US.

    You just have to ask the right questions and clarfiy things with your evaluator, ask her about what you lack, and always be respectful when you talk to your analyst. Do not act all knowing but make sure that you get to your point.

    Remember, my fellow Filipinos. If your college is indeed accredited, then our nursing curriculums are all the same. It is mandated by the BON and CHED. So whatever I studied, whatever other filipinos took to become eligible, is what you also took.

    So you are eligible, the same way I am and the others are..


    my email is starleviosa@hotmail.com
    from the looks of it, I see that this problem is because of one evaluator. But I cannot mention her name her, I mentioned it before, but according to the terms and conditions of this forum, we aren't allowed to mention names.

    If your analyst's name starts with an "*" email me, I have her direct line. so you can talk to her directly.

    Hi there, Im Lui and I graduated from Philippines too. Im having the same problem as you are. But unlucky for me Im having a very difficult time to fix it. My analyst said that i should take my psychiatric nursing theory and clinical concurrently, which I did. So I requested for a letter (explaining that I took it concurrently) from my school to send it to the my analyst here. The letter was received by the california BON last September 26, 2011 and up until now Im not receiving any letter coming from my analyst. Also one of my biggest problem is that whenever I call the BON, they always forward me to my licensing analyst and I ended up on voice mail ALWAYS, I haven't heard the voice of my licensing analyst even once. He's not even answering any of my voice mails. My last option is to tell him that I have alot of school mates from my school that took the NCLEX here in California. But I don't know what to do now. Thank you for any help. I hope to hear from you soon.
