    Hi everyone! I am not sure if this post is right for this thread. But I would like to ask if anybody knows about United Staffing Solutions Inc ( a nursing agency in Culver City CA)? A friend of mine just signed a contract to this agency and I want to help her find information about this agency. Hope to hear from you guys...thanks
    Anything like that needs to go to the International Forum, that agency deals with foreign nurses. But the issue is that the contract is already signed, any checking should be done before the contract is signed. Remember that a contract is a legally binding document.

    No matter what information that would be given to you now, a little too late for that.

    hi, susan:

    i currently have LVN in CA and would like to take LPN-RN online class via Excelsior college, but i also found out that CA RN BOARD does not reconize this school's diploma. so I figure another way out is, to take the RN board exam in Neveda, then endorese back to CA and become RN in CA, do you think, can it work out this way?? will the CA RN BOARD let me endorse??

    please advise.
    thank you

    Wondering how this applies to therapists. I'm considering a RT course in CO, then relocating to CA. Can I expect the same issues?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, but that will not work either. Only NCLEX exam results have reciprocity, you still need to meet the educational requirements of CA. They are not accepting Excelsior grads for the RN. CA will not permit you to work in CA as an RN unless you graduate from a program approved by them.

    There are many other bridge programs available to you that are approved by CA, take the time to do some research on the topic. Excelsior is not one of the options for you at all if your goal is to work in CA. Same way that other states do not accept the 30 option plan that CA has. Each state can set their own requirements.....that is their right.

    Please check out the International Forum, requirements are much different for you from another country. I also never recommend CA for initial licensure if you trained in another country and do not have a SSN#. The wait is much too long and about one month to get your NCLEX results. Much faster to endorse to CA after having a license in another state.

    Best suggestion is to contact the licensing board for the RTs. Each can set their own requirements. The issue is usually with clinical hours, just make sure that the program that you want meets CA requirements.

    I preety much have the same question. I just need some advice. I just got accepted to a program that allows me to bridge over to Oklahoma State and sit in for their NCLEX-RN exam. But I am a California resident and wish to work here not Oklahoma. I read a lot of the posts and was wondering which would be the fastest route to take Assuming no prob w/ FBI finger prints etc.. . Would it be .......
    A)Graduate from Oklahoma State take the NCLEX over there , move back to cali and Endorse to a permanent license...?
    B) Graduate, from Oklahoma and apply to take NCLEX in CA?w/ out endorsement?

    Help??????????????

    Bridge over to Oklahoma? Talking about LPN to RN program?

    If you attended a school in CA, they permit those students to test before the BRN receives the completed transcript from the school if your name is on a list, if out of state, you cannot apply until you have a completed set of transcripts.

    For endorsement, it would depend on how quickly that your school sends transcripts to CA BRN, as well as how long that it would take OK BON to send verification to CA BRN.

    It is probably going to be a draw as to which way would be faster, cheaper for you just to go with CA for initial licensure.

    Thanks for the response Suzzane,

    No it's not an LPN to RN. It's an ADN program. I do 9 months at IUON (international University of Nursing) St. Kitts, and then go straight to Oklahoma State College 9 months. (NLNAC Accredited)..I graduate from Oklahoma State w the Degree and be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN...

    Thank you for all the info. This thread has been very helpful. I will be applying to take the NCLEX and get licensed in California after I graduate in May from NYC. Since I'm moving right after graduation, it seems easier for me to get licensed in California initially rather than get licensed in NY and then get endorsed. My only concern is that the California Board of Nursing website states the nursing program must meet their educational standards and I can't find any information to let me know if my school does or not. I haven't had any success contacting them by phone or e-mail, but I'll keep trying. I was just hoping someone could shed some light and possibly calm my nerves til I get an official answer from CBRN. Thanks.

    Definitely speak to the CA BRN before you sign on the dotted line. Being able to sit for the degree in one state does not guarantee all states. CA is very particular about somethings that others are not.
