    In that case, since you don't want to work in CA anymore, I'd just apply for Licensure by Exam to NY, fulfil their requirements including CVS report, get CA to tell them your NCLEX result (they won't delete this) and then get a NY license issued.
    CA will not delete NCLEX results? Then that sort of clears things up. They will delete your files, but not your nclex test results. So in case I do not give them an SSN within 3 years, I don't have to worry that all the hardwork (and money)I invested at passing the nclex will not go to waste. All I have to do is reapply (send them the necessary docs) at the time I choose. Is this what you're saying, augigi?

    Apparently I am not being clear, but I'm sorry, I am not sure how I can say it any clearer. Your NCLEX result is good for 10 years, even if the CA board application expires after 3 years. Hope that makes sense.

    I am so happy this discussion has come this far...its like I am asking myself and I get the answers just by opening this website...The answers are all exactly what I need to see...

    for the sake of all...or to those who have not seen a NCLEX letter from CA...this is the statement on the last part of the letter
    " IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR SSN TO THE BOARD OF REGISTERED NURSING WITHIN THREE YEARS FROM THE DATE OF THIS LETTER, YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE CONSIDERED ABANDONED AND YOUR FILE BE DESTROYED."

    This letter is the notification that the nurse has passed the NCLEX too.

    to all who answered and extended the topic well..tsuuuuppp!! mwaah!! thanks!!

    Here in the Philippines...
    we are so anxious about this because, some situations in the process of application, beyond the control of the Filipino nurse, or due to the AGENCY OR HOSPITAL, .....the application is denied and the time spent from the waiting period is reduced into less than two years...until such time...that the NCLEX 3 years..is almost consumed and the nurse is still in the Philippines... Do you know what I mean?

    Hope all of you do know what I meant here...oh..but thank you all very much

    ohw so that means theres no more reason to apply for another state even though it would take ca passers more than 3 years to provide their ssn? well, then im solved

    eventhough they said that they will destroy our files after 3 yrs, If we provide them a SSN (not later than 10yrs right?) and reapply/repeat examination form($75) at ca again we could get our license? is that for real?! am i reading this right?? hear me--

    anyway, i sure hope its a fact.
    Thank God:angel2:
    Thanks for the info people

    Sorry, but that statement about the results being valid for ten years does not have any bearing on this. That was taken out of context and is not true about CA.

    They are the only ones that will have the results on file if that is the one that you wrote the exam for. They only keep the file for three years, sometimes four if you have made special arrangements with them, but otherwise, the file is gone. This is why we repeatedly tell someone to make sure to go for licensure in another state before the letter expires.

    The approximate time of the ten years is if someone has received a license initially but never practiced or has been away from the field for ten years but did not keep their license up, will have to actually take the exam once again. It depends on the state that you would be writing it for and if a license was actually ever issued. We are talking of two different things here since a license is not going to be issued to begin with.

    Much has already been written on this topic, please just have a look.

    This is a very old thread you have brought up and things are always changing with BON/BRN requirements. Closing this as there are many threads already with more up to date information
