    Yes, have you noticed the pretty high of NCLEX pass rates of the schools? Wow! While I have read that the passing rate from most of the Phils schools is 30%, meaning a 70% failure rate, just the opposite from the CA schools.

    Yes, I know there's always the cultural and language thing that might separate us, but there are plenty of previous smart Phils students who have passed the first time.

    I'm not sure if most of these CA approved schools/colleges will allow us to just take the one or two deficiencies, without enrolling in the whole program again? If they do allow us only take the one or two courses, it's after the other students have enrolled in them and leaving a spot or two Phils to take the class, it's better than re-studying and losing another 2 years again. But with so many of us going after these precious openings, it will not be easy.

    The big question who or which of these schools even offer a foreign student just the 1-2 courses so badly needed. I know that the regular classes are already limited and probably have a waiting list for just the local students.

    People have talked about SFSU and Pierce College, but no one has said they are actually enrolled and probably so until they are in class since we're all going after the few spots open, if that's the case and don't want to lose their position.

    I’m a BSN graduate from a California university. I just want to share that it is not only internationally educated nurse applicants that’s having problem with the CABON. Many of my classmates still do not have their ATT (3 months post-grad) because the boards required them to submit explanation and supporting documents for every traffic violation above $300. Before, it was not such a big deal to have traffic violations and the boards do not usually hinder applicants as long as the violation had been paid. Now, it’s totally different where every little thing is scrutinized.

    Start here, but get in your application quickly. My PH friend's friend has been trying and found out there was more foreign students trying to fill in any possible open spots than the locals.

    She said that it's not only students from the Phillipines competing and applying for these same spots, but you have a lot of students from the UK, Russia, Spain, Ireland, India and Slovenia and those are the countries she's heard of at the school's office and heard there's a lot more. These countries are also not meeting the CA BON minimum requirements.
