CA BRN new requirements for NCLEX RN international students - page 35

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... Read More

    what would you do if u are a phil grad and studied for NCLEX RN for like a year then got denied? NEED SUPPORT GROUP!!!

    anybody living in sacramento ca and looking for a job as caregiver or cna..etc....NEED SOME PEOPLE IN THE SAME SITUATION..
    At this present time and foreseeable future, CA is not going to happen for the mass majority of us PH grads.

    So rather than waste the time spent on studying for the NCLEX-RN, you have no other choice other than look into the other 48 states (VT BON has said that PH courses are "unacceptable", see Lanze's thread). Based on others with the processing time of our courses by an outside evaluator and taking the English proficiency test, it will give you another year to prepare for the NCLEX-RN, if the desire is to become an RN.

    If you decide to stay in CA, then study for the NCLEX-PN exam, not the NCLEX-RN, to become an LVN.

    But from others who either are working or know of someone closely related, CNA jobs are just as hard to find and get as much as the LVN's (I read somewhere there are much more CNA's and LVN's than RN's due to CNA certification is easy to get and more LVN programs are available), but then again, so are regular new grad nurses getting hired is very tough, it's not a nice world for nurses like before.

    You could say that the doors have been slammed shut on PH grads. External forces beyond anyone's control. Even beyond hope and prayers.

    Ony those states that have explicit education requirements of concurrent theory and practicum will Philippine nurses have licensure issues.

    Excellsior College New York nursing graduates have had same issue recently. See state board licensure requirements here

    These are states having concerns over concurrent therory and practicum, so I would look at other 37 states to obtain license:

    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Georgia
    Illinois

    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Maryland
    North Dakota
    Oklahoma
    Vermont
    Virginia
    Washington

    It looks that some have responded to the "online" schooling and clinical application and the clinical competence and practicum experience of these graduates. Interesting.

    I was only aware of California, Vermont, New York, and Georgia. I never thought Washington would be one of them. Is it Washington D.C. or Washington State. Currently applying for Nevada heard of a Physical Assessment course but the state said it would depend on the situation of the student.

    I would also like to know what state and when did you apply for your exam.

    maybe thats why you got your eligibility because you filed your application prior to the new requirements that they are asking.so lucky of you...

    Congrats to you and passing it the first time! Yep, you made it under the deadline month and year!

    But I think had you not passed the exam the 1st time and had to re-apply as several others did, there was a very good chance that your re-application would have been denied. I think if you know of others in your batch that failed the exam, would have been denied due to the re-application, then, yes, you're very lucky!

    As far as I can see here in these threads, no one was able to get their ATT upon a re-application, as NO Phil college to my knowledge has ever met the CA BON requirements.

    So YES, in short, you are very very blessed and got thru. Good for you!! Nice to hear of a success story with all the negatives we're facing today.

    Let's just hope that upon the second renewal process, CA BON does not start to re-exam the transcripts again as some have mentioned and then, you're faced with possible license issues, such as non-renewal or on a temporary basis for a time period to re-take any deficient classes.

    Now you're a USRN for real and hopefully working as one! Yea!!!

    This looks really bleak for all future PH applicants. All PH RNs still having plans for the US must look at this post and understand the doors slamming shut. This is the end.
