    Hi! Anyone from Virginia?or filipino immigrants aspiring to get a VA RN license? I took the NCLEX with CA BON 3 years ago and my case has been abandoned. They advised me to reapply, which means submitting all documents I have submitted before but no need to take the exam. I have fear on continuing this step since I have a batchmate that was turned down to take the NCLEX. Will they review my files again, and be affected by this concurrency issues or I'm thinking why I have to go through this when they have already found me eligible before. Any help is appreciated. God bless.

    There have been some instances where people were eligible the first time, but failed the NCLEX; so, when they reapplied to take the NCLEX again, they encountered the concurrency issue. Granted, in your case, you can always try again, since it is up to the Board.

    However, if you are already in VA, why not apply and work and live there?

    Good luck!

    Thank you! Yes, I called the VA Board of Nursing and they asked me to complete the process in getting my license in CA and then endorse it to them. What I am avoiding is taking an exam again. ))
    I think I will resubmit my papers and wait if Cali will give me a license.
    Some said that the concurrence issue happens only to those who will take the exam and since I have passed the exam they don't think I have to go through eligibility screening.

    Is New York still safe? Im from the Philippines and now staying in CA and an NCLEX passer of New Mexico. I am planning to endorse my license to New York. I just want to know if there will be any problem endorsing my license to NY. Thanks

    Has anyone experienced the concurrency issue when endorsing a license from another state to California?

    If you endorse your license to California,you will need to process a new application.So they might ask you some requirements again.Its up to the Board if they will or not approve your endorsement.

    You still need to meet the same requirements if you are endorsing from another state.

    The California board will still look at your educational background no matter what. So the concurrency issue might be a problem in the event that your education does not meet California's requirements.
