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

    Thank you for replying! I'm sure that they are concurrent with the lectures, but I'm just worried that they want more than 3 cases because a lot of my classmates did 5 just to be sure and I wasn't informed. The evaulator didn't specify an amount of cases too so it makes it even more confusing for me if I should risk having the school send the cases of 3 each. Do you know of anyone who gave 333 cases and they were concurrent, did they get approved by the CaBRN?
    I personally don't know of a person with the 3-3-3 cases and getting approved, just from what was mentioned about their situation here.

    The evaluator will not know nor care how many cases are needed, what's the important factor is what does your school require? As everything must match up perfectly to be concurrent.

    For those doing the 5-5-5 cases, if it's more than required, so be it, but it also means there's a increased chance maybe just one of them doesn't meet the concurrency rules and then, it's game over (either temporarily or for good, depending if they are declared deficient but able to re-take the deficient course to make up or simply can not complete their application due to the 3 year limitation ran out or went out of state or gave up and moved on to another career).

    Of your classmates, have they applied into CA or what's their deal to take up to the 5 cases and where do they stand today?

    Are you a recent grad?

    Yes, I recently just graduated April 2014. They have yet to send an application. So I'm not sure if them having 5 cases will make a difference, unless it's all concurrent.

    What was the requirement from your school? Say if you had to take the PNLE?

    You may be the first to test the CA BRN waters then.

    Our requirement was just 3 major, 3 minor, 3 delivery, 3 cord care. And that was about it. But they are concurrent so no problem with that. However, I didn't take the PNLE because I can only stay in the Philippines for 6 months and April was my 6th month, also I'm pregnant at the moment, so would that be an issue or a letter would just be okay to give to the evaluator.

    CA BRN does need to verify your nursing license from the same country that one obtains their BSN degree.

    It is a requirement. However, if you're a US or dual citizen, you can write a short letter of that fact and why you couldn't take the PNLE and the reason of not having a PH nursing license.

    They are currently accepting that explanation for now but there could come a day when the CA BRN will need to verify one's local country's nursing license and no more excuses will be accepted.

    If however, you're only of PH citizenship, you must present them with the nursing license.

    CA also requires your SS# (effective April 2010) or they will simply decline the application and you don't get back any refunds.

    Doesn't matter on which school you went to but that your clinical and theory was done close together as mentioned above

    Having a Philippine license doesn't really matter as CA are being strict regardless but you are not loosing anything by trying as you may get through if you think your clinical and theory hours will meet their requirements

    okay, so here's my story.

    I graduated in the Philippines in 2008. I took VT exam in 2009 and passed. I avoided taking CA RN due to SSN issues. My immigrant visa to come to the US has been approved and I will be moving to California this year. Am I affected with this concurrency issues if I'm going to apply for reciprocity (vt-ca)? I did have 5-5-5 cases by the time I graduated in 2008.

    But did you have your cases done at the same time as your theory? We have seen many post that they was denied when endorsing. The risk of applying is up to you but be prepared you may or maynot get denied

    No I did not have them at the same time. It does makes sense to me now what this concurrency in CA is all about. Thanks!

    Are you a US citizen, dual or of PH citizenship? CA BRN does require along with the valid work authorized SS# and a copy of your PH local nursing license as some of the basic required documentation, whether for first-time applicants or via endorsement.

    The only way one can tell if you're going to be eligible with the CA BRN is to submit your application with the non-refundable application fees. They will have the final decision so it doesn't matter what's said here.

    The one answer might be did you take ALL your theory and clinical in the exact same time together, NOT one week, not one month, not 1-2 years before or after the courses began or ended?

    It only takes one mistake when if dates don't match up date day by date day or you'll be found not meeting the concurrency rules. That's why the CA BRN is strict on getting some documentations later after the first submission, this is to lessen the chance of the fraudulent paperwork being sent in, so well known amongst the CA BRN evaluators.
