CA BRN new requirements for NCLEX RN international students - page 42

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

    Oh sorry I haven't really researched on that one. i'm trying to look at universities here in California and their hours on psyche theories and I can''t seem to find one good description. Did you manage to completely attend the whole theory though? you may be safe.

    Oh wow, you're so lucky! The things I'd give to have concurrent cases with theories. I wasn't informed until my 4th year. The only thing I can do now is apply out of Ca.

    Oh wow that doesn't sound good. if both of you have the same number of theories and applying in California then there is a chance that the board will require you to study again. What are your plans though if you do find out that you lack hours?

    Hi there KurtRN, i believe it is required to pass your clinical cases, and if you don't there's a huge possibility that the CA BRN will request for them. Did you by any chance complete your cases within the time frame of their corresponding lectures? Will having an local license be an advantage? In California not so much but if you are applying to other states then yes. States are now requiring license to where they were trained in. Some states also started to require a minimum of 2 years experience to sit for the NCLEX.

    Just as long as your cases are completed within the same year of the corresponding theory then you'll be fine. A Social Security Number is also needed. and if you do get your ATT pass the NCLEX on the first try.
    I may have a problem with my PRC cases. Some are not in accordance with the time I took up the appropriate nursing major. Although I have some spare OB cases in my RLE record which I earned during my second year. Can I use those cases even if I have NOT used them for my PRC application? How exactly should I mail CA-BRN my clinical cases?

    Oh that's a tough one. I think the school will also provide a copy of your cases once you send them the request forms. My dean informed me that with the previous students applying for the NCLEX the CA BRN also requested the school to send a copy of their cases. To see if your passing true and relevant information. This is the tricky part. If you do manage to use your spare cases and the school submitted a copy of your original intended cases for the prc then you may have a problem. Before you left the school did they ask you to photocopy your cases and clinical rotations so they can keep a copy just in case the CA Boards ask for information.

    Before graduation all of us were required to produce three sets of PRC cases. One for the Philippine NLE, another for school records, and a set for us to keep. But I'm not quite sure if my school has included copies of my clinical cases for the sake of application. If all else fails, would it be wise to apply in Nevada instead? I'm not bringing up the thought of reciprocity here. Just merely being licensed in Nevada. Or if you don't mind, give me a list of states I could easily apply in. I chose Nevada 'cause it's the closest state to home which does not require concurrency if I'm not mistaken. Thanks!

    The school may have saved the copies for future preferences. I'm glad you brought up the applying for Nevada. I'm currently applying in Nevada and it'll be in a couple of weeks before I find out what CGFNS says about my transcripts. I can't say it's a hundred percent that you will get your ATT there. I know 3 who received their ATT before June. Now there are also 3 others who were denied because of concurrency issues. The later others applied the more requirements were asked fore. Requirements were Physical assessment subject and a medical surgical nursing level 2. I don't know about now. I will let you know once I get my letter from Nevada.
    Here is a the list of 13 states that you may want to avoid with the concurrency issues.
    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Georgia
    Illinois

    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Maryland
    North Dakota
    Oklahoma
    Vermont*Had no problem in the past but now requires SSN, License and atleast 2 years experience
    Virginia
    Washington
    Nevada*recently started to require subjects to enroll in
    Texas*Requires license and experience

    Recently foreign grad applicants were successful in applying at these states:
    Michigan
    New York
    Hawaii

    I would really suggest to take actions ASAP. It was originally California to enforce these issues and now 13 other states are enforcing concurrency issues. It's a matter of time before states take actions.

    I really need to make a video to spread awareness.

    New York sounds good. Oh, man. Nevada tagging along with this concurrency issue? Is it okay to pass my application to different states at the same time? You know, just to save such precious time. Gosh. Are you currently working while waiting for your applications?

    Well it is possible. But, the problem are the fees you will be paying for each state. Each state has an application fee. I've spent 300+ for CGFNS alone and 200 for Nevada and 100+ for the English Proficiency exam. Now if you plan on applying to New York their CGFNS CVS is different from the CES. They have their own CGFNS method while most states accept CES. So that's additional fee right there.
    But if you do have the money go right ahead. I wish i was working. I've applied for so many jobs and nada, very tough job market out there. Trying to be productive and study.

    My mom's paying for all my application fees. But to save time, I guess I have to consult her about this. I just go crazy when I'm not being productive at all. This may sound a bit rhetorical, but if I do get an exam permit from Nevada, does that necessarily mean I have to drive up all the way to Vegas and take the exam there? Or can I do it in the testing sites here? Sorry. You're, by far, the person who's been clearing up my knowledge about taking the NCLEX.

    NCLEX can be sat in any test center that issues the test. Results will go to the BON that you are sitting exam for. ie you can sit the exam in London UK and results go to NV where application was lodged.
