- May 29, '12 by evanchoyQuote from steppybayI am actually doing this research for my wife. We actually spoke to the person who is in charge of this matter. They have limited student slots specially on the clinical area.Are you already enrolled in this class? If so or if not, what is the student size that this Loma Linda Univ will allow for foreign students...1 or two or twenty or more? What is the cost of attending?
If you are not already taking the class, is it a friend of yours that is doing this today?
Thank you for passing on this good information!
If your letter specifically says that you only need to enroll MED SURG and OB, then your'e looking around $10,000 in 4 months time. I have a friend that is already going in this particular school that is where I got the amount for the said units.
As for my wife, her letter did not state a specific part of her nursing transcript that was lacking so we wrote CA BON again and asked for specifics regarding what units were actually lacking. It's been close to a month now and they still have not replied.
The nursing department told us that CA is offering a special course from an LVN to RN program. If you become an LVN here, you have the opportunity to take additional units to become an RN but the only downside is, you can only practice here in CA. That would also amount to around $30,000. That is why we are also applying for an LVN Licensure Exam at the moment. From what I remember, it would take about a years time and it would be a BSN degree. I am not sure of the BSN degree part.
It would be best to call them and set up an appointment so you would know your options as your case/letter maybe different from what my wife has. Let me know how your research goes. Good luck!
- May 30, '12 by steppybayThanks for the information! Yes, that's why I was asking about the cost and space. It seems like most schools in CA are going to be very expensive and we as foreign students can not apply for any financial aid. The price tag of $10,000 is way too much and anything over that is not going to work for me.
I know there are several others trying to fit into the limited open spots left-over for foreign students. My friend said that there are students from India and Russia also trying and that numbers into a few hundred in CA.
It's either being an LVN in CA or looking out of state for better chances at being an RN that don't need a SSN, but that's shrinking also. Arghhh....
Good luck to you and your wife!

- Jun 6, '12 by NRSKarenRNQuote from confuzhnaccelerated 1yr programs are at the bsn or msn level, designed for those who already have a bachelor's degree in another major. this would be an expensive option and acceptable to california board as completed us education program. transcript review is required along with knowledge of licenses held outside the us to aide in application for initial us license since nursing programs required to send ther records to bon.i was wondering, what if one wants to endorse rn license to california.... but knowing that 6 months or so later it would get denied or asked to go to school to repeat several nursing classes.... the person instead of applying for endorsement goes straight to an accelerated second degree adn (or bsn) program that takes 1 year to do and completes the program and received a us adn (or bsn) ... isn't this ok for ca brn? and transcripts from the foreign school is no longer needed for nursing evaluation? also, when applying for the accelerated adn (or bsn) program in the us, does one have to let the school know that the applicant already holds an r.n. license?

lvn 30 unit option - designed as a career ladder for california licensed vocational nurses wishing to become registered nurses. takes approximately 18-24 months. no degree is granted upon completion. most other states do not recognize california's lvn 30 unit option and will not issue rn licenses to these lvns. some lvns prefer to complete an adn program in order to obtain a degree and to have the flexibility to get an rn license in other states. most adn programs will give lvns credit for some of the coursework they completed to become an lvn.Last edit by NRSKarenRN on Oct 3, '12
