    they have a new policy pertaining to filipino nsg grads. hmm yea we did call them and that is their reason. Ur lucky that u passed the boards back '06. Coz now i know and im aware that many of us nsg grad in the philippines is having a hard time applying for boards here in cali. and pertaining to your comment that once you failed all we gotta do is reapply? Hmm that doesnt apply to us for this is the first time were about to take the exams here in the us, were both rn's in the philippines. Tnx anyway. ))
    You applied and pass before the concurrency issue came out.

    Yea he have ssn, we both have upon entering the us as immigrants aftr 1wk we received our ssn, hmm for i beliv this is a new policy., we recently graduated last 2011 from uphsd. and then bon sent us some request forms to process papers in school and for it to be mailed directly to bon, and were the one who provided them our case forms and stuff (complete).. then turned out not eligible still. Haay .. Ur lucky u ddnt experience that, make the most out of the oppurtunity goodluck!
    Not a new requirement at all, it's been in the CA BON written policy since 1987, it's just they are enforcing the concurrency rules (request for more transcripts evaluation) and not just PH grads or nurses, but also from the UK and Australia (both countries however are being denied due to other reasons: either lack of certain clinical hours or missing courses and also have to re-take them in CA).

    CA required the valid SSN I think in April, 2010 as the effective month and year.

    I applied in Cali back in '06 and thank God I passed right away. I know Cali is one of the easiest and fastest state to apply to. Anyway, I'm not quite sure why BON denied you. Did you ever call them to find out? Also once you failed all you gotta do is register again and not start the process over again. Tell your brother to apply in another state or try his luck in Cali again. Good luck!
    Here's one good read on the CA BON denials: http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...ca-682278.html

    As far as try another state, there are 13-14 states that are also enforcing the same concurrency rules as CA, with NV recently starting and now require a copy of the local PH nursing license effective in 2013.

    Many PH passers try to also get their RN license from another state and try to endorse-transfer back into CA, but it will NOT work as CA BON will request the same original college transcripts that would or will have denied the application anyways, as one must meet the same CA educational requirements, this is happening to more recent grads, from 2007 onwards, but there have been a few unlucky Phils grad with 2004-2005 transcripts and got denied (concurrency).

    With the near 50% new grad unemployment rate in CA (per 2011 CA BRN Nursing Survey report), it's a much tougher road to go down now. Add to this article of the "we don't need PH grads or nurses till 2020 year"...here's the link read: http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...et-779683.html

    Not necessary, we have seen nurses from a couple of other countries also have issues with CA

    How long did you wait for your ATT? Are you a Texas resident? I'm still here in Nebraska but moving in Houston on May. I started my exam application last month but TX BON sent me a letter last Friday and told me that they can't process my application because I live in a compact state. I called them and they told me that I have to move first before they can proceed to process my application. It's so frustrating because I've been trying to get my ATT for almost 3 years now. I applied first in CA but got rejected because of the concurrency issues. Then I applied in Nebraska but decided not to continue it because we are moving anyway in Texas. Its a long waiting agony and I always wonder what will happen next I hope you could tell me what to expect and the step-by-step you did for the application. Did they ask you to take TOEFL? Your feedback will be a big help.. Please... Thanks a lot!

    yes I am a resident here in TX. You need to move here first in Texas and apply for a TX state license before they can process your application. Thing is if you're residing in Nebraska(member of Compact State) and planning to apply in Texas(which is a member of CS too) you are not allowed because you need to pass you're home state exam(Nebraska) before you can apply to another compact state. You don't need any English proficiency exam anymore since our course was conducted in English, I just waived it in my CES report.
    Here's what I did:
    1. Apply for CGFNS CES report( I was educated in PH and just came here in US recently, it took me almost 3 months to process that.)
    2. After my CREDENTIAL EVALUATION RECEIVED, I applied for fingerprints for CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK RESULTS( took another 2 weeks)
    3. Passed the nursing jurisprudence exam while waiting for my ATT(took me 6 days to get my ATT) and registered with pearson vue.
    4. Scheduled for my NCLEX exam.
