Hello, EVERYONE! I am a new member of this forum, but not a new reader. I have been following threads from this forum for several months now. I have been trying to log in but I've been having problems with my computer back then. Now that it is fixed, I'm happy to be able to finally become a member.
I have a question that I hope anyone of you readers can answer. I'm still a Filipino, who fortunately passed the CA NCLEX in 2003 (I have a visitor's visa) and got my license in Dec. of the same year. My CA license will expire this coming Dec. My problem is that I cannot renew it because I still have no SSS no. since I'm still currently residing and working in my country. My petition is still underway, but it's still a long way to go.
I emailed the CA BON and was informed that I would need to submit proof of 30 hrs of Continuing education
to be able to renew my license after it's expiry. Although, I have read in their website that one can apply for an Exemption for the Continuing Education requirement if "he/she can submitproof that he/she is a resident of another country for more than a year and currently employed
". Does the word currently employed
means I am employed specifically as an RN or any job will suffice? does this rule apply to me (being a foreigner)? I have inquired about this renewal and even explained about my situation; but the person who replied to my email did not mention anything about exemptions.
Please enlighten me, anyone?
