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

    Just send the requirements. We all got the same letter. some required to pass their curriculum vitae. But actually the most common requirement that they will ask you is our cases. so that they will evaluate if your theory is concurrent to your cases. if you said your cases weren't concurrent. hopefully they will not notice

    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.

    Yes, thank you! My friend also found about this school, but the thing was when she inquired last year, they wanted the full tuition to be paid up-front. They would take a certain portion to start but will need the entire balance shortly to be paid off in full.

    The problem is that if you're an international student, there was no financial aid assistance. Do you know if that has changed so that foreign students can get some loans?

    reply:
    thank you for posting this. lucky you that you have found a school that will accept the deficiencies. but they offer limited slots. plus the fees per unit is very expensive. I can't afford that
    for now I will take the LVN.

    Full tuition paid in full on the first day of class. Only full time students enrolled in the program are eligible to apply for financial assistance.

    Hello! You need to shell out about $3609 + books, etc per class. You can't take both (MS & OB) classes at the same time. Do you have family who can help out?

    YIKES! Ahh, okay, only full timers are able to get some money help. No, I don't have any family members or friends to help me out at this time, unless we sell a few village cows, lol. Do you think the school will trade for them

    What if you're already a Legal Resident or US Citizen would they still provide financial aid at least.
