    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!!!

    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 hereThese are states having concerns over concurrent therory and practicum, so I would look at other 37 states to obtain license:Alabama Arizona California GeorgiaIllinois Kansas LouisianaMarylandNorth Dakota OklahomaVermont Virginia Washington
    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.

    Hi, Just want to clarify something about the logbook because I just recently applied for the exam. BRN also requires me the cases, I am really having a hard time on it specially on concurrency issue about the duty and lecture dates. So, I'm thinking about following your method, since, fortunately our school also requires us to document (logbook) our duties. Do you think is it possible?

    Reading the trend today, more and more local RN were experiencing rejection from CA BRN, since because of the concurrency issue and strict policy.
    If you may, what is the exact list of documents that your school mailed to the BRN?

    Also, If you allow, what school did you attend to??

    Appreciate your response. Thank you

    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

    Hi jamalang, just wodering what did happen to your application??

    I dont think its the end because schools in the PHIL.now are adjusting their theory and clinical curriculum already I know it because I have relatives taking up nursing in the PHIL.and now they are seeing the changes already.This is only late last year that nursing colleges in the Phil.are being aware of the concurrency issue of the stricter rule by CABON and now they are trying to correct it.Too late for some but still changes are being made.

    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
    Miss Karen,

    Could you link me to where you got that list from cause I'm a bit confused. I know that Virginia does not have those issues with foreign graduates since they rely solely on your CES report which does not evaluate your clinicals.

    Thanks,
    James.
