Please correct if I'm wrong but California does require TOEFL.
I have a California RN license and I have a BSN from the Philippines. I wasn't required to submit proof of passing the TOEFL. I checked the CA BRN website just now and it didn't say they require it for International applicants but things change so best to check directly with the BRN.
I took the TOEFL as part of requirements to be admitted to graduate school here in the US (I ended up doing an MSN here). I took another English test prior to that (Michigan English Language Assessment Battery or MELAB) as a requirement for Visa Screen when I was applying for a Green Card in 1998.
