CA BRN new requirements for NCLEX RN international students - Page 29Register Today!
- May 4, '12 by holler4everHi everyone,
Like most of you here, I'm the same boat as you are. CA BON sent me a letter requesting a copy of my clinical cases. The problem is it takes money, a lot of effort coz I am residing here in OC and Im 8 mos. pregnant. Been considering either to take LVN exam or take the nursing boards in Nevada.
Just thinking, will I be able to request my credentials as an RN grad to be forwarded to the CA Board of Vocational Nursing. The board has all my original documents such as diploma, TOR (transcript of records) and a syllabus of all my subjects duly signed by our College Dean.

Unless you're absolutely certain that your cases solves the concurrency issue most of are facing then I highly recommend that you don't go through the trouble of requesting/sending. That, of course, unless you want to end up like the rest of us and give CA another reason to deny an applicant.
To answer your question: Yes, analysts who have are forced to deny applicants will usually offer to send your documents to apply for the LVN exam. All you have to do is contact your analyst and provide a letter to give them the permission to share your information.

Outside of the regular and traditional schools and colleges that offers other courses (geography, English, Math, Chem, Arts, etc), besides nursing, be very careful if you start to see "colleges or schools" or businesses that offer you to enroll in "their" courses and offers they can cure your deficiencies very quickly, very easily and at some high tuition fees.
If they advertise in your local newspaper, where say I can't read due to it's in foreign writings and they promise you guaranteed results to get it done and if they claim with testimonies, slick website, certificates hanging in their offices and classrooms AND they are claiming they are 100% CA BON approved. Make sure they are really on CA BON approved listings but simply going to their website or e-mailing CA BON directly.
I would hate to see any scammers out there trying to prey on so many innocent students just so they can afford to pay their life's loves and material things and other illegal gains and in return, there's no true benefits at all to the students and nothing more than empty promises.
If you find such an outfit that claims they can meet CA BON deficiencies, post up so others can start their own investigations with CA BON. If they are a scam and enough inquiries gets to CA BON, they will check out the outfit(s) and if they are illegal, they will shut them down, hopefully before anyone gets hurt by their fees and wasting precious time.

i just spoke with my licensing analyst from bon. i am also required to pay $30 fee so they will process my request of endorsing my documents to the board of vocational nursing. i don't wanna stress anymore, worrying about being denied again since it's hard for me to process these additional new req. such as my clinical cases since i am here in cali and don't wanna bug anybody else back home in the philippines to process the deficiencies for me. not only it is costly but it is time-consuming. i decided that the best thing for me to do is to go ahead and process my lvn application and pray hard that it won't cause me too much pain just like what i experienced with ca bon.
- May 4, '12 by iirnitedTransferring your documents from one agency to another should be fairly simple and should jump start your application process. I'm glad you've chosen to pursue being an LVN, but in my opinion you shouldn't limit yourself to only California since you've only tackled one out of the possible fifty states. Like the saying goes, "aim for the sky".
- May 5, '12 by leytegirl82hi!!can u pls add me up in ur fb acct?coz i have the same prob too!same subjects that i was told to take here in CA (MS and OB) so, I'm hoping :spin:we can all work things out and probably take the NCLEX soon....
- May 5, '12 by jhoneusebioHi ... iam jhon from van nuys ca... i have the same scenario with u guys.. the california brn is requiring me to send my clinical cases ( OB / OR CASES). Does the california board of nursing will accept the written explanation of our school regarding the concurrency issue? because i already requested them to make a written explanation on that matter thx
- May 5, '12 by dragon_ladyTry to send the letter but it wouldn't change the fact that we didn't meet the minimum requirements of the CA BRN.
- May 5, '12 by dragon_ladyBased on my own experience,I sent an explanation letter written by my dean stating all the reasons why I didn't finish my L&D cases when the course was offered and same as Minor and major cases when MS was offered,but still I got denied.My analyst told me that the letter couldn't change the fact that I didn't meet the minimum requirements of CA BRN.
- May 5, '12 by jhoneusebio@ dragon_lady.. so whats ur plan after u got denied?? what is the best state to apply next to california??
