- May 1, '12 by BennyRNCAQuote from waleyYou see here's another case of knowing someone from the exact same school and courses taken and was able to get their ATT. This is your best source that's exclusive to you alone, the person you know is the one straight link you have to CA BON as they have passed thru the screening process and made it!i have the same problem too. i'm a graduate of 2011, then we moved in CA. i applied for NCLEX in july 2011 and sad to know that i wasn't able to sit for the exam because of the concurrency issue. i talked to my analyst just to clarify things that i can hardly understand. and i end up telling her that i know someone who graduated from the Phil was able to sit for the exam with not having problems at all, same curriculum and she applied 2011. i submitted all the requirements but the letter i received was hopeless. my analyst told me that it depends on the situation. i've read some threads here that other applicants got their ATT because they sent an explanation letter from their school regarding the concurrency issue. i asked my analyst if they would give me the eligibility to take the exam if i'd do the same thing. she said it's a case-to-case basis. but as for now, she advised me to go to school here in CA to make up for my deficiencies. still, i wasn't satisfied with what i've got from them. i am hopeless for submitting my requirements and got nothing from them. i've wasted enough time and money. for those applicants who had this issue and got their ATT, did you guys go to school or something? i badly need your reply. thanks!
I would definitely get in contact with this person you know, you can get their name and maybe even better, their RN license and go to CA BON's site, see the name listed and go from there. You must have other friends or someway to get in contact with this person. This is your key to get the door to open.
This could be the one and most possible way to not have to enroll in a CA school and spent more time and money when it's right here in front of you. Granted, CA BON may still review on a case-by-case basis, but it's better than try this route than to say it's not worth it, when you haven't even tried. At this point, with the current processing issues, current job market, etc, you need to get to the top of the pile somehow, someway. Good luck!
Keep us posted.

And in order for you to get your eligibility you must pass all the CABON requirements especially the concurrency Issues which is for me impossibe if you graduated in the philippines.

- May 4, '12 by BennyRNCAQuote from Rose1210The only strict thing outside of the regular foreign pre-screening of your transcripts from an outside agency and the language testing (not sure of that, but check the BON site) is like what CA needs, which Michigan just changed like so many other states are doing soon (VT just changed also) is you must have a SSN to apply.hello do you have any idea if board of michigan is strict??and how many months before they give eligibility? thank you....
- May 4, '12 by holler4everHi there jeffBSN,
You know what, we are pretty much the same. I graduated 2007, took 3 NCLEX-RN exams (unluckily failed), worked as a caregiver before I got married last year. Then after re-applying for the 4th time. I received a letter asking for my Clinical cases. I haven't submitted it yet coz I am getting frustrated already. All these time been studying hard for NCLEX-RN and all I hear from them is a letter asking for more requirements. If there is really a bias inh the system of CA BON against Filipino grad. nurses, guess the Phil. authorities should stand in between this. Now, Philippine nurses are now being disqualified to have the chance to be a registered in Cali. I know there are still 49 other states other than Cali that I can take the boards from but I cannot relocate now. I am 8 mos. pregnant and unemployed, married and my husband is the only one working for us. I am so eager to take the test before I deliver but my hands are tied at the moment. All I can do is tKE the LVN exam. Just wondering how I could get my original requirements from CA BON: my diploma, TOR (transcript of records), RLE book (related learning experience), syllabus outline .
- May 5, '12 by ohhlalaHow many clinical cases do they need? (major,minor,delivery)
- May 5, '12 by Ginger's MomMany states will not allow you to retest after 3 failed attempts without doing some make up. Some states require refresher after being out of school 5 years. And some states will not allow if you have been denied by another state,US grads who fail,their education is closely reviewed by the BON, there schools are contacted and held accoutable, how is this any different for a foreign grad who failed 3times.
