    It would depend on what state you are applying for. If in California, no. Not really. Just got to have your SSN, and you completed your cases on the same year with the same lectures. If you are applying for states like Vermont or Texas then yes you need to have a license and experience.

    Oh sorry I haven't really researched on that one. i'm trying to look at universities here in California and their hours on psyche theories and I can''t seem to find one good description. Did you manage to completely attend the whole theory though? you may be safe.

    Oh wow, you're so lucky! The things I'd give to have concurrent cases with theories. I wasn't informed until my 4th year. The only thing I can do now is apply out of Ca.

    Oh wow that doesn't sound good. if both of you have the same number of theories and applying in California then there is a chance that the board will require you to study again. What are your plans though if you do find out that you lack hours?

    Hi there KurtRN, i believe it is required to pass your clinical cases, and if you don't there's a huge possibility that the CA BRN will request for them. Did you by any chance complete your cases within the time frame of their corresponding lectures? Will having an local license be an advantage? In California not so much but if you are applying to other states then yes. States are now requiring license to where they were trained in. Some states also started to require a minimum of 2 years experience to sit for the NCLEX.

    Just as long as your cases are completed within the same year of the corresponding theory then you'll be fine. A Social Security Number is also needed. and if you do get your ATT pass the NCLEX on the first try.
    I may have a problem with my PRC cases. Some are not in accordance with the time I took up the appropriate nursing major. Although I have some spare OB cases in my RLE record which I earned during my second year. Can I use those cases even if I have NOT used them for my PRC application? How exactly should I mail CA-BRN my clinical cases?

    Oh that's a tough one. I think the school will also provide a copy of your cases once you send them the request forms. My dean informed me that with the previous students applying for the NCLEX the CA BRN also requested the school to send a copy of their cases. To see if your passing true and relevant information. This is the tricky part. If you do manage to use your spare cases and the school submitted a copy of your original intended cases for the prc then you may have a problem. Before you left the school did they ask you to photocopy your cases and clinical rotations so they can keep a copy just in case the CA Boards ask for information.
