    Hi all, as I am reading around this thread I cant help but to wonder if I was reading the right information on the CA BRN website, I thought they would accept an EC grad provided they have the right amount experience to meet the "standarrs" of the CA brn.... and now from what I am reading, it seems like its their call. What if you were an EC grad with the ADN and then went on to get a bsn through a "traditonal" or "accepted" school, would you have a probelm then with the CA brn?

    Yes. They will always look at the source of your RN.

    I don't know! I am still holding my breath that they will let me endorse into Calfiornia once I complete my BSN. I switched from EC to WGU to finish my BSN just for this reason
    Any updates....waiting with baited breath as I'm contemplating this path, EC/adn then wgu or unitech for bsn. I still need to work on my prereqs....

    It only matters where you got your initial RN, it doesn't matter where your BSN comes from.

    Yep this is true! I am VERY anger about this! California BRN is just awful. I contacted them and asked what additional clinical could I do to satisfy them. Keep in mind that I am currently employed and working in acute care as an RN. I was told to complete an approved ADN program. Wow! I can't believe this!
    That's California for you. Shameful.
