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

    Hi! I think I'm one of you guys. I've just received a letter from BON CA that my NCLEX-RN application was denied and I'm required to complete additional course work, in short need to enroll to school AGAIN!


    By the way is there anyone here tried to contact the schools (from the list of approved schools provided by BON) and planning to fix their documents? Any advice or updates regarding this concurrency issue? thanks

    Awww, I haven't received a letter response from them yet! May I know how many months it took before they sent you message?? appreciate your response!
    In my case, it has been 2 months since I complied with the additional requirements and up to date haven't heard anything.

    About the schools, I think if you try to go back with in this thread, you can find recommended schools by the users who had been denied from their application. However, if I remember it correctly, some of the school here CA doesn't offer a special course to cater the demand of the BRN, but instead you need to take the entire program.

    Normally,it takes 2-3 months when you are a first timer applicant to get s response from the RN board.

    Honestly, I don't. How I wish i found this thread before I passed my application so I know what to do and not, but I think this just bound to happen that after I passed my application, out of nowhere, I just search on things about foreign nursing and I stumbled with this. And the rest are only trust, faith and prayers.

    Personally, I really don't have any plan if things turn out to be different, since in the first place I don't have any capability [financially] to re route, so I guess, I'm just one of the hopefuls that situation may favor me.

    But again thank you! God bless

    Hello everyone!! I don't even know how to start...I went back to the Philippines to finished nursing school but when I applied back here (California) for NCLEX-RN, I was denied because of concurrency issue. Of course, they wanted me to go back to school which I'm willing to do but the letter does not state specifically what classes I needed to take & that the Director of Nursing School will decide which classes will be credited. What if I have to take it all.

    Seriously?? You mean they did not stipulate any recommendation at all. That's pretty new! Majority, if im not mistaken, were being suggested to take MS or OB subjects on the case of concurrency, so, is it possible that they want you to take the entire program because in the first place its odd that they just leave the decision to the director of nursing [nursing school].

    I am starting to think that this concurrency issue is just a tip of iceberg, that THEY JUST DONT WANT TO ACCEPT FOREIGN GRADUATE. Hope its not.

    By the way did you happen to submit the same format and same document from the PRC for the RLE clinical rotation schedule??

    Having a batchmate approved does not necessarily mean that the rest will be too. A batchmate of mine was approved but the rest of us denied and all of us shared the same concurrency issue. Weird part is, the same analyst who approved my batchmate's application was also the same one who rejected another batchmate of mine.
    TO iirnited: Wow, that is great your batchmate got the ATT (from CA), but disappointing news about the rest of you guys. Did this particular batchmate already pass the NCLEX-RN in CA?

    If so, how about your batchmates could they mention in writing to the CA BON that they should review their applications since the one lucky batchmate was given the ATT?

    I don't think it hurts to ask, I mean all they can say is "No", but at least they tried rather go to another State or try becoming an LVN or take and pay for expensive deficient classes.

    Nope, no suggestions at all except to go back to school or take the NCLEX-LVN.

    I've been searching schools. So far I only applied to one-- LA pierce college last week. I have an Interview this November 5 (which is pretty quick response) to determined if the Department will be able to provide the coursework that I needed for Spring 2013. I hope I won't repeat all the classes. Well, it does not matter anymore as long as I can get in their program. The waiting list is very long that's what the nursing secretary told me. It's by slots I guess.

    Yes, I submitted all my RLE clinical Rotations from the PRC.

    Good thing you have found one! yup, I also heard about the long line [waiting] to secure a slot, some took 1 to 2 yrs of waiting. Always hope for the best! Good luck

    Hope you make an update, if you get accepted

    The concurrency issue has been in writing for ages now, some states have that rule in their books longer than others, but it is not a conspiracy against foreign graduates.

    It is at the BON's prerogative when to enforce the rule and when to be a little lax (like in the 1990s for CA).
