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

    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.
    My friend checked into that too, but I think because National University is considered a private school, a for-profit college, it is different than getting the tuition waived at the "regular" kind of CA schools, like the Cal State's or University of XX city or local community colleges, but I could be wrong, just check with the school's financial aid dept.

    Sounds legit, but already 10 in the waiting list and they only take 1-2 foreign grads when the program starts. So does that mean he may be waiting 4-5 years? It would be great if the school can open another class. Better yet a bridging program for applicants with the same situation. I doubt they'll make a bridge though. Hope you guys get in!

    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.

    Just send them all of the requirements they are asking you to submit. If they need more requirements they will mail you. They won't exactly say that you've completed all the requirements. It's a matter of waiting for either the good news or bad news.

    kuyaF, when they asked for additional requirements like our cases did they mentioned that this will "COMPLETE" your application or they just said that submit the following requirements. this is because i received letter from BON they already received my cord,major/minor and now they are requiring me to send my "deliveries" to "complete" the application. is this the same letter as anyone in here had and still got denied by them? even though they mentioned " to complete your application"? btw thats the only one they required me to send. plus as far as i know my cord cases are not the same time as my theory in ob. thanks.

    I hope the Filipino Nursing Community will push negotiations or at least lobby our local legislators officials on a bridging program especially for us folks that a legal residents/US Citizens that played by the rules. The biggest challenge is the budget of the tertiary universities are still being cut and the limited resources the state still faces. It's an uphill battle.

    Call BRN and ask to be connected to your analyst. If your analyst is available she/he will be able to talk you about your application. SSS# or file # required.

    the item mark with X. blah blah blah. to complete your application. that's what they said on their love letter of death right? I think majority of us will receive the same response. If you complete your requirements, they will start the final evaluation of your application.

    Yes, my friend also asked a couple of schools of maybe try to have a special class for international students to offer the deficiencies.

    But outside of mentioned the reduced budget cuts facing all the CA schools and colleges, there's not enough qualified preceptors (actual hospital nurse that has the years of experience) for each nursing student, unlike what we had in the Phils with a bunch of inexperienced and many inept "clinical instructors", I mean guys, I think many of us knew more than they did. Each US nursing student follows each of their nurse mentor if you will, just about everywhere during their 8 hours of clinical and even if that means going in from 11 p.m to 7 a.m., on weekend, on holidays, they have to follow that nurses schedule (this is straight information from my US nursing friends).

    So even if it's only 20 or 200 international students that can immediately fill these classes and produce a long waiting list and willing to almost pay top tuition dollars, there's just not enough hospitals with the proper preceptor staffing in CA or any state and can legally offer the clinical and theory parts in the same semester to the international section, as there's no obligation on the CA schools or colleges or any State itself to assist the international nurses, as the primary concern are for those who are US citizens who are already enrolled before they are plans to accomodate any international student or nurse.

    Unlike, in the Phils with the excessive crowding of 10-25 students per patient, I mean it's not easy on the patient, it's not easy to really get into the patients thoughts etc. Here in the States, it's one-on-one.

    While there are many USC and legal residents, the fact that one got their educational background and training from an overseas location, you're still classified as a international student.

    If there was truly a "nursing shortage", then yes, maybe there's a chance, but in the real world today, it's not possible. Sorry to be so negative, but that's what we're facing.

    Thanks for the information, this is great, but at what cost do they want for the deficient courses? I'm more surprised at the "no waiting list". I know for just being a regular student, it's $$$$. I want to say like $30,000 per year plus books and supplies, add a few more $1,000's per year.
