    See if the people at the California Board of Registered Nursing will review your previous nursing education. They will let you know, in writing, the steps you'll need to take in order to obtain licensure as an RN.

    Will it be considered a BSN in the eyes of CA because it's considered a batchlers degree in Mexico?

    Go to the BRN website and follow the instructions there. Contact them in person to explain anything you don't understand.

    Only the people at the CA Board of Registered Nursing can make that determination. As I previously mentioned, see if they will review your previous nursing education.
