    In order to get an att you have to register first in pearson vue. And inorder for you to register you must have an eligibility from the CABON. 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.
    Don't foget to even start the process with CA BON, you must have a SSN or all of the above, will get rejected and save yourself the application fee.

    hello do you have any idea if board of michigan is strict??and how many months before they give eligibility? thank you....
    The 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.

    Hi 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 .

    Many 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.

    A good part of your battle is taken care of just having a SS#, whew....but did you ask the Michigan BON if they have issues with the concurrency courses or minimum clinical hours? If they are not strict in that regard you might be able to get your ATT.

    Maybe repost your concerns in the International forum here about asking of other possible nurses from Michigan, I would not post up in the Michigan state forum since those are more attracted to US based nurses and don't have too much of a clue of overseas assistance.

    So sorry to hear of your struggles, what a bummer to not have passed the NCLEX back in 2007, you'd be so far ahead of the nursing job game with a few years of RN experience.

    I feel for you with the newborn on his/her way very soon. My good friend of mine just had to put down her nursing plans on the shelf for at least year or two since she just had her little boy a few months ago. I just wanted to wish you and your husband best wishes in not only nursing career but a nice and healthy baby! Good luck!

    I've already sent a letter of explanation from my school as well as a letter coming from myself saying how my batch mate was able to sit for the exam etc.
    I'm planning on calling in later to ask if they already received my letters and if so, just get down to the their final decision of whether i'm eligible or not
    Because after all the time i already wasted waiting, i don't think i can wait for their reply, whatever it may be, via snail mail
