    If your basic nursing education meets Californias requirement then you should be eligible. What they are evaluating should only help you not hurt you. It doesn't make sense to evaluate your education beyond the basic minimum requirements and count it against you. They should consider it an extra and deem you eligible. Unless it is something beyond where they found discrepancies and therefore evaluating the whole education and if found any part of the nursing education isn't concurrent with theory. Either way it shouldn't matter if clinicals aren't concurrent with theory as long as they were completed. At least that's my opinion.
    Yeah, I too am confused. It would almost seem that they would be better off to not even mention these extra cases. I sure didn't need all that when i went to school. hospital based school, too.

    @ gingers mom...same in PHL.schools too we also have qualified instructors,long yrs.of clinical exp.nd masters degree.. not only in the US..and its not only international grad.failed nclex d first time,there are also US grad.who failed nclex many times..d only prob.with international nurses is that we are required to pass additional reqs.and i think thats the topic here..

    and it doesnt mean if u get ur education in a cheaper price ull fail nclex..

    Very well said proudpinay....i am an RN from the Philippines, i took NCLEX first time recently and passed it...

    I agree with you. The only thing the BON is declining all the ATT applications right now is all because of theoretical and clinical issues, even though they were completed. And it sucks! They should have at least consider the clinical experiences even though its not concurrent with the theoretical. What important I think is that the applicant have the knowledge and experiences they needed for the field.

    Hi. If your theoretical and clinical is not concurrent too they will probably do the same thing with you.

    In my own opinion I think its better to move to another state to get a license for the meantime. That's what i did while I'm waiting for the CABON decision. I know it will take me a while for CGFNS credential verification for my application to other state but at least I know something good will be happening. And if the BON decided to accept all the hanging applicants maybe I can apply again some other time after having a license and hospital experience from other state. Just wanted to live in CA.
    Just an idea.

    i also received the same response recently from the ca nursing board. i arrived in usa about a year ago and have applied for the rn licensing exam.

    i have been waiting to hear regarding my examination for some time. i applied june last year and immediately i received so many requests for information from my school. i provided everything but did not hear anything until i called the nursing board in sacramento and spoke with a licensing analyst, who told me that my application was denied and that she will send me a copy of the denial via email.

    i received a copy of denial of my application via email on december 2011 after my phone call and it indicated that my application was denied due to the following reason:

    "the board of registered nursing has completed an evaluation of your application. based on the documents that were submitted, it has been determined that the program you completed in the philippines does not meet the requirements for licensure as a registered nurse in california.
    california code of regulations section 1426(d) states that theory and clinical practice shall be concurrent and based on the information submitted, this requirement was not met. when we reviewed the clinical cases your scrubs were not taken concurrently with theory instruction and the did not follow the related learning summary from school. your theory and scrubs should have been completed in ncm 201 and 202 but were done in ncm 203, 204 and some in 205.

    b & p code section 2736 outlines the general qualifications for applicants who apply to the board for licensure and who have received their training from a school in another country.

    the courses of instruction from a school of nursing in another country, in the opinion of the board must meet or be equivalent to the courses of instruction in nursing from a california school."

    the licensing analyst i spoke to also told me that "filipinos are greedy" and just want to make lots of money (something to that effect).

    i believe something is happening here that is more than meets our consciousness...is discrimination at work here?????

    i thought the denial reason the board provided was unique to my case, but seeing your posting here made me more weary as the board appears to be collectively discriminating nurses who went to school in the philippines.

    is there something we could do regarding this???????
