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 for new requirements such as:... Read More

    You will need to meet LVN requirements and pass NCLEX PN to get a license. I doubt you can endorse (transfer license)

    you cant transfer your records agency to agency..they wont allow that for privancy purposes.
    i did tried that before fr BRN TO BVNPT..it didnt work
    What? There are others here who was asked to simply submit a letter to transfer their records or some had to pay a $30 transfer fee.

    Try calling, e-mailing all of these places:

    Board of Registered Nursing - RN Programs

    Just know others have tried and either no classes offered, need to enroll in the full program or very limited space of 1-2 spots with 1,000's of other global students also trying to get in. There are only 1-2 application periods a year and you must have passed certain math and or English pre-exams. If you're successful, you're looking at 2 years or more to get it completed.

    Kudos goes to our own CHED, PRC and PNA for giving us a great education, hah.

    Someone had mentioned months ago that the CHED, PRC and PNA came over to the CA BON to discuss this matter, not sure what became of that meeting or if it was true.

    It's been stated by someone here that they have taken notice as the curriculums have been changed or recently changed to meet the concurrency requirements.

    I can imagine the tons of complaints from the instructors, deans and the agencies office being bombarded with calls, letters and e-mails.

    I think it remains to be really seen if these changes are the ones that will finally comply with the CA BON minimum standards. It would be a couple of years to see that effect.

    Although, someone here said that they did get their ATT being a recent grad under the 4 year schooling?

    I asked about it on this forum, but never replied back yet. This person stated they "almost got denied the ATT, but it was not a problem" and did get the ATT.

    Yep, it would still be denied coming back into CA. This is why I and several others have Said, Mentioned, Preached, that it doesn't matter where you get your RN license and then try to endorse back into the final desired State with either the concurrency issue or lacking certain courses or lacking clinical hours.

    Why go thru all the fee$ with the application form$, why WAIT for months to get an answer, then pass the NCLEX, then get the license, then try to come back to the State one wanted to be in the first place, then get the REJECTION-DENIAL love letter? I see several people here complaining about not getting their application fees back when they got denied....Hello, it CLEARLY says the application fees are NON-REFUNDABLE! That's the gamble one takes if that's the thing they want to try.

    It will ALWAYS be based on submitting the exact same transcripts and records that would have DENIED the application in the very first place! It will ALWAYS come down to the basic main foundation, your educational background, regardless in most cases, even with 8,735+ RN clinical hours.

    Sorry I'm not calling you out, just that so many don't get the message. Hello everyone...

    Don't bother trying to go around the licensing system, it's NOT going to work! Find what state you want to work-practice in for 5-20 years and be happy there, as in CA and the other 12 states so far is not going to happen in the near future.
