    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!
    In your particular case, then, you would not meet the concurrency rules and the application would be denied and loss of the application fees, but you do have up to 3 years from your application date to complete the deficiencies.

    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.
    hi thank you so much for that info. I just got here last Sept 16 as a new immigrant (green card holder). Our school, realized that "theory and clinical issue" late and still tried to give us complete cases.

    Maybe my best step is to call them and ask right away or else I'll pursue my dreams in California and start out as LVN if thats the only way.

    Btw, how many months would it take me to wait for LVN application?
    How about the study period for the deficient subjects?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Hello Guys!

    I read all the topics here and I graduate from the Philippines year 2007. I also received a letter from the BON to take classes of Med Surgical and OB. Since I got the letter, I decided to take LVN and passed it. My question is, does anyone of you knows a school here in San Diego CA area? I already had a full time job in this area, and It will be hard for me to travel one city to another, but if you know any schools that accept online classes for theory, then just go to that area for clinicals, then i will take it for consideration. Please let me know, I would appreciate one of you will reply.

    Thank You

    I just found out thru a friend that if you are needing to complete classes for concurrency issues, Moorpark College and Ventura College in Southern California would allow you to apply as advanced placement student to get those classes taken care of. If you are accepted, you go in as third semester students and graduate in a year with an associate degree, thereby allowing you to sit for the NCLEX. My friend is a foreign educated nurse with concurrency issues and she is in third semester now. Further, she said no waiting period, everything is based on points. However, she said the program is incredibly rigorous especially the clinicals. You get 3 patients from the get go.

    Here is the FAQ link she sent to me

    maybe as long as you have SSN you'll be fine, especially if you're going to work as a nurse here in US or here in Cali, employer should ask for you license I mean like the physical US RN license itself. And I think employer should fix that for you since they gave you the permit to work here right?

    Only the CA BRN can answer your question. TBH you should apply for them and see what's their verdict. It's kinda win or lose game for them. In order to know if you're eligible or not you should try to apply and wait for their evaluation
