    Hello Nurses!

    My husband (Batch 2012) just received a letter from CA BRN that he is deficient in MS and OB theory and clinicals. We then exhausted our time this week to look for schools near Los Angeles which will allow him to take these classes. And so far, National University offers these classes but there are already 10 foreign graduates in the waiting list. My husband's on the 11th slot. The good thing is their classes are on a monthly basis. It means you don't have to wait another semester to take MS or OB whichever comes first to enroll it. Problem is, NAtional University only takes 1-2 persons from the wait list per year. However, it was mentioned to us when we spoke to *****, Admissions Advisor that the the class usually takes 20 students maximum. Maybe, if the wait list comes to 20 then we then can request from National University to create a separate class. I am most willing to help since I am very aware of this concurrency problem affecting the foreign graduate nurses nowadays.

    FYI, MS theory and clinical take 2 months to complete. Same with OB. Cost $1467 for theory and $1467 + $675 for clinical. About $326/unit. Roughly, you need about $7218. Just be guided.

    To be included in the wait list, email a copy of the letter from the CA BRN of your deficiency to:


    Enrollment Counselor
    Los Angeles Nursing Department
    National University
    5245 Pacific Concourse Dr.
    Los Angeles, CA 90045
    (310) 662-2044

    f you plan to visit the campus, you can ask for:


    Admissions Director
    310-662-2117

    Good luck to all you.
    Yes, thank you! My friend also found about this school, but the thing was when she inquired last year, they wanted the full tuition to be paid up-front. They would take a certain portion to start but will need the entire balance shortly to be paid off in full.

    The problem is that if you're an international student, there was no financial aid assistance. Do you know if that has changed so that foreign students can get some loans?

    thank you for posting this. lucky you that you have found a school that will accept the deficiencies. but they offer limited slots. plus the fees per unit is very expensive. I can't afford that
    for now I will take the LVN.

    Hello! You need to shell out about $3609 + books, etc per class. You can't take both (MS & OB) classes at the same time. Do you have family who can help out?

    YIKES! Ahh, okay, only full timers are able to get some money help. No, I don't have any family members or friends to help me out at this time, unless we sell a few village cows, lol. Do you think the school will trade for them

    What if you're already a Legal Resident or US Citizen would they still provide financial aid at least.

    Hello Rhansantiago84. Yes, you can. Try Home - FAFSA on the Web-Federal Student Aid. If you don't have a job (requirement to pay minimum mothly dues), you can ask a family member or close friends to co-sign for you.

    Hi jenkits! Thanks so much! This is very helpful! My concern is though in my letter from CA BRN, they mentioned my OB and Med-surgical cases weren't concurrent but it never specified the subjects I would need to take. It just said to enroll in any accredited nursing program in CA.. and it is up to the school's nursing director to give credit to my previous subjects. I know some have similar letters to mine.. while others have the subjects specified in theirs. Some I believe spoke with their analyst and it was the analyst that informed them of just needing to take the OB and Med-surg courses.. I'm hoping I can just take these 2 subjects even though my letter was very generalized. May I know what was said in your husband's letter from the CA BRN? Were you able to talk to his analyst?

    Hello Jinxedminx. I suggest you call your analyst if your letter does not specify the deficient classes.

    I think the only qualified for the full coverage is the one who doesn't have any associate or bachelors degree?My friend applied for financial aid but they found out she has a degree,so her full coverage was cancelled.But since she is a low income and single parent,her tuition has been waived but not all the expenses.
