Let me clear up some mis-conceptions that you apparently have:
1. NCLEX-RN results do not expire. What will expire is the application that you made to CA BRN. Still not sure if it has or has not at this point in time.
2. You brought up the state of VT, that was never brought up by me.
3. There is no such thing as fixing of papers
as you call it. If you get licensed in another state and then wish to work in CA, you will have to endorse your license to CA.
4. You cannot sit for the exam for CA again without having to start the process all over again. Once a file is expired, then everything else that was sent in with it no longer exists and this means transcripts, fingerprints and everything else that they require.
5. This is why we are telling you not to do a thing with CA at this point in time. Or you will be doing the exact same thing three years later and there just is no reason for it.
6. No one said anything about the retrogression ending in 7 years; what we have stated that the earliest that you will have a chance for a visa for the US/ green card is going to be 7 years at the earliest with watching how things are moving now as well as the large number of people that are waiting in front of you.
7. Next question for you is if you wrote the exam three years ago, why are you not in the petitioning process with an employer? It could have been started once you had passed the NCLEX exam; but now, we are not seeing any employers
in CA willing to start the process now.
You are also not understanding how licenses work in the US; one can possess as many licenses as they want, as long as they are willing to pay the fees for them. You are not restricted to having only one license at a time. You could actually have one in every single state if you meet their requirements.
Licenses in the US do not require that you work there. I have had held licenses in different states anticipating working there but never did, and never an issue for me.
The NCLEX exam only has to be written once in your life-time if you pass it, then you are all set. It is only when you go thru CA for initial licensure that anyone has these problems. Has your application to CA already expired or are you thinking of these things now in anticipation of what will happen? Are you actually working as an RN now in your country or someplace else at this time?
