    Hi! Just wondering how long it takes for the CGFNS to process the report and so you mean Florida is not the same as CA with concurrency issue? I am planning to try Florida and hope i will get a good news too! Last question what are the requirements so i can be exempted for taking English proficiency exam? Looking forward for your reply and thanks in advance!!
    Application for examination for FL found on their website: http://doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursing/a...ure-RN-LPN.pdf Page 11 of the application packet has information about English proficiency.

    This packet found on their website has more information about foreign applicants, including about English proficiency: http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursi...o_EduOutUS.pdf

    Any questions, call or e-mail the BON.

    Hi,

    The CGFNS processed my papers for almost 2 months. It depends on your papers if it's complete then they will process it as quick as i am. The Florida board didn't ask me to take the English proficiency exam. Again, it also depends on the school where you finished your BSN. Last week, i sent them the copy of my Continuing Education Certificate "Prevention of Medical Errors ". And just this day, i sent my Finger print card. Hopefully by next month i'll get my eligibility and take the Nclex-Rn.exam

    I just passed my nclex-rn as a foreign grad I got my eligibility on nov 2012 and undergone the same requirements that ca required. Like you guys I lost hope in CA but was given a chance again. What I learned is it wouldnt hurt to try to apply if you really wish to stay in CA yes it is expensive, time consuming and stressfull to apply something that is uncertain but thats just me. I was also eligible to HI bon but thankful that i wont need to take the exam in HI anymore. Taking the exam has extra pressure I failed my last exam at 75 and passed it at 75, I guess was terrified that they wont give me another chance if I screw up again.

    You are indeed one of the few lucky ones to have escaped the wrath of the CA BON, congrats! Yes, good thing, you passed as re-applying one more time might have changed this picture.

    Do you know if other batchmates of the same graduating class or after you also applied and got their ATT recently?

    I remember you mentioned I think someone's son got their PH nursing program approved or met with the CA BON and CHED, do you know what became of that meeting?

    They asked me to send them copy of my us passport (which took time coz i had no clue where to find my old passport) and schedule of rotation.

    @steppybay - most of my batchmates here in CA already passed their nclex before I did but I heard from one of my friend that he knows someone from our batch that was asked the same requirements and a statement why his nursing transcript are from 2 different schools (i guess she was an irregular student back then). Regarding the son from pi unfortunately I have no update cause I just eavesdrop their conversation lol.
