    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.

    hi good day. i would like to ask if what state is better in taking NCLEX RN? also in terms of living there? thank u!

    NCLEX is a national exam. There is no difference in the exam from state to state. There is no state that is "easier" than naother.

    Hi steppybay! I find most of your posts very informational Thank you! I,myself, is a newly grad and foreign trained. Ive been doing my own research and I am kinda stuck with the state to which I should apply. Most of my fambam and friends are in Cali but with the concurrency issues, i guess i have scratched CA out. Now, aside from the states that you have mentioned above, in your own opinion, which state would you recommend a newbie, foreign graduate to apply at? Please feel free to share your thoughts cuz as of this point, any information would help me to gain new insights.Thanks in advance!
