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

    Hey killerbee! were your cases concurrent? That's good you received your att. that's some long process. hmm i guess patience is important.

    probably kuyafern I asked my school to send me a copy of my cases so i can check. They also asked me to send them copy of my us passport (which took time coz i had no clue where to find my old passport) and schedule of rotation. I just sent the letter to my school and they said they'll try to send all the requirements they asked for. In some point I lost patience and applied to cgfns which is still in process for review

    Congrats to you! You are truly one of the 1% that actually got thru!

    Do you know if any batchmates from the same exact graduation time also applied into CA or any of the other affected concurrency states got their ATT?

    Are you a recent 2012 graduate?

    Please pass the NCLEX the very first time, as who knows if you don't and upon the re-application, they may rule that the previous submitted transcripts upon their review was not concurrent, then, you're back to square one. Good luck on your exam!

    You mean it actually takes 9 months before they send a response???? I applied last June 2012 and I complied all the additional requirements last September (as per my school). Until now, haven't heard any form them... Appreciate your response

    @steppybay - Not that I know of, some already took the exam before the concurrency issue, some got denied and some are still complying with the requirements. Im from batch 2009 btw. Yes I will study hard for it and surely wont take this for granted. Thank you!

    @nomad 29 - It usually takes them 45-60 days to reply. I mailed my reapplication on Feb 12 they replied on March asking for the requirements. My school mailed it on April but still need to look for my passport. Summer passed I focused more on my competitions(non nursing related) then did some spring cleaning found it then mailed it on Aug. I recieved a letter from them again asking to correct my name coz I left my second name on the application, mailed it on Oct. Finally got this letter last friday. I suggest if you have not heard from them after 70-80 days to call and verify. I don't think that there should be a reason for them to lag on your papers, we all know that their latest requirements made quite a good number of applicants to rethink in applying to the state.

    Hi Killerbee

    Thanks, I should probably make a call, because I am starting to think that they haven't received any (paranoia attacks me)

    But Goodluck, it is somewhat a breath of fresh air to hear that someone slip thru the CABON evaluation

    I took my NCLEX-RN last year but i failed so i decided to reapply early this year and they sent me a letter asking me to provide them additional requirements. I called and spoke with someone from BRN and asked why they were asking me additional requirements now that i was reapplying but they found me eligible to take the test last year. They said they were just reviewing all the possible candidates if they meet the California standards for which they found mine did not. So right now i have to ask my Mom to go back in the Phils to go to my school and get all the requirements needed. While waiting i decided to apply for LVN for the mean time and now im scheduled to take it soon but i can not concentrate because my mind is all set on thinking whether or not they will find my application eligible or not.

    Also i have known several people who were facing the same problem and they all said that when you give them a copy of your cases (the one we were sending a copy to PRC), and if by any chance the date you completed your cases did not match the date and year you took your theoretical they will not accept it. Like for example you took your maternal 3rd year college 1st sem, then you completed your cases while you were on your 4th yr, they will question that. Someone even explained to them that due to a very limited time, nursing students will not be able to complete their cases but they are given up to the time before they graduate to finish it. Still BRN said that if in the Philippines that is accepted, here in California we do not meet their standards.

    So right now i guess i have to take the LVN first while waiting and hoping that they will sent me an eligibility to finally take the test.

    Sorry to hear that you didn't pass the first time.

    You're so right about us PH grads not meeting CA's regulations in many cases due to the cords delivery etc.

    I gather from my USA nursing friends that while it's neat and cool to watch a live delivery and cut the cord and do the dressings that will never happen in a US hospital to expose any inexperienced nurses or students to such, as in the States, one wrong mistake can not only endanger one's license and schooling, but injure or kill a newborn, then add on a large lawsuit against the hospital and the nurse/student. In the Phils, if that happens, well, you know no one will get sued, etc.

    One interesting thought that a couple of my US friends said that they think this baby delivery assistance and cord dressing is done in the Phils, as it's a very inexpensive way for the hospital to control the large demand of newborns needing help, so they see us students as a good way to supplement the actual need of more experienced nurses. I have to agree with that thought, we're seen as cheap labor force in the Phils.

    The other big problem with the Phils system is that they don't limit the nursing school size and prefer to load up as many students as they can, then let 15-25 students per students ask a single patient the same questions in the clinicals. That's something that doesn't happen in the States, at least in CA and many other States, they only do a one-on-one experienced nurse (preceptor or mentor) to one student nurses, this student nurse MUST be joined at the hips (literally) with the preceptor except for breaks, meals and restroom time.

    That's why in the States, there's such a waiting list for new students to get enrolled, there's only so many hospitals and qualified experienced nurses to teach each single student. Mind you, that's also why 85-90%+ of the USA educated grad nurses are able to pass the NCLEX the first time within 6 months of their graduation. They are taught in their classes and clinicals how to "critical think" right then and there, they must do reports on those and are heavily graded. So everything is so fresh in their minds.

    I keep saying "thanks" to our CHED, PRC and PNA for doing a "wonderful" job....FAIL.

    i wanted to get you guys' advice. im currently in the philippines taking my BSN. i have one and a half more years left of school. my situation is kind of different from the rest since my ob cases are concurrent, HOWEVER, my surgery cases are. should i continue with school or go home to california and just take it there? and if i graduate, do u guys think that BRN will allow me just to take OB classes? i am pretty desperate for any helpful information. thank you and good luck to all of us!

    Ok, thanks!

    So figure about $7,000.00 plus whatever books and supplies are? A bit cheaper than National Univ, but worth it as there's no waiting list. They will probably require full payment before the start of attending? Just need to meet MSMC's other minimum requirements as you mentioned as well.

    So then, I need to sell most of our village cows and the hen house with all the hens and eggs

    any updates???? are you enrolled now at MSMC's?????
