    I applied early 2011 and had same set of requirements. I however did not mail them my cases on OR, DR and nursery. My school mailed them my student diary or logbook or box chart of duty dates when I had my duty, it had my signature and my instructor's signature on. I also mailed them my summary or RLE. Our school also mailed them a school catalogue and a the nursing curriculum (100+ pages). Oh and my class sched from 1st - 4th year. Yes the whole she-bang. So let's hope your respective schools kept you registration forms and schedule forms.

    I got my ATT a month after that.

    It's not about the 4 years of study that makes it frustrating.
    It's the hassle and long process of application, and the 300$+
    we've spent for nothing which is really upsetting.
    I haven't got my letter yet. but hopefully It will turn out to be a good one.
    if not, well, I'll be REALLY REALLY UPSET (*esp since I have been reviewing for months!)
    but I'll just move on.

    California isn't the only place on earth you can work as a professional nurse. :O

    yes, and here is the message from my analyst:

    "
    California Code of Regulations (CCR) Section 1426(d) states that theory and clinical practice shall be concurrent in the following areas: geriatrics, medical-surgical, mental health/psychiatric nursing, obstetrics and pediatrics.

    In your country, each student is required to complete theory and clinical training. In addition, part of the clinical experience includes five (5) clinical cases in each of the following areas: assisted deliveries, actual deliveries, cord dressing, major and minor operations. The Commission on Higher Education Department (CHED) together with the schools offering a program in nursing in the Philippines have guidelines of when and what nursing course(s) will cover each of the five (5) clinical cases within the semester.

    A review of the educational documents submitted by your nursing school (transcripts, related learning experience (RLE), clinical rotation and clinical cases) reflects that some and/or all of the clinical cases were not completed during the semester that the corresponding courses were offered.

    You have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the Philippines. The Board would recommend completion of Medical-Surgical II, along with an Obstetrics Nursing course, in a California nursing school where theory and clinical training is concurrent; however, completion of the courses and at what level of training will be the decision of the California school of nursing.

    While completing clinical practice out of sequence is acceptable to meet the requirements in your country, it does not meet the requirements in California. A comprehensive evaluation of your training indicates that you do not meet the requirements as set forth in CCR Section 1426(d).

    The situation would be the same if you acquired a license in another U.S. state and then attempt to endorse into California. The licensure requirements would still be based on your education. "

    Guys, my application got denied last month. Sorry for the late update. CA BRN wanted me to take MS and OB again which will take 2 years. So I decided to apply in New York state. Good luck to us.

    [QUOTE=jamalang;5775261]I had already registered online in Pearson Vue but I think I'm not yet eligible to take the test. Is there an expiration date for my registration at PV?

    I received a letter from CA BON requesting for new requirements such as:
    -SS number
    -Local license in Philippines
    -copy of ur clinical rotation schedule for your cases: Assisted/Actual deliveries, cord dressing and major/minor surgeries
    -A complete school curriculum hundred pages or more sent directly from ur nursing school to the board. (the board doesn't accept the condensed version of the curriculum
    -a one page curriculum outline and academic calendar.

    fortunately I had the first 2 requirements but I am worried that the last 3 will take time to be accomplished.

    I am wondering if it's just me who have this requirements. Most of NCLEX passers I know weren't required on those listed above. It's really hard to focus on review while your thinking of this


    You got your eligibility and scheduled to Pearson but still you got denied?How is that?
