    I got a job 5 mos after taking the exam (2011) , although, I have taken it for granted, jumping from one hospital to another, from dou to neurology and now emergency trauma full time, and part time aesthetic nurse. I have gotten a position in one of the "elite " hospitals in LA but dint like the environment so I left for my now position, not one of my proudest moments but it is what it is.

    I didn't think of myself as "only" a foreign grad. It was an even playing field with free for all RN positions. I didn't know anyone in the system or anyone that can vouch for my capabilities as a nurse. I can proudly say that 90% of my interviews I was offered the position. An older friend who's a graduate from UST is now doing CRNA school after a year in ED.

    so yes, with determination and confidence, it is possible. I wasn't too ambitious gunning for critical care areas off the bat but I also didn't sell myself short

    good luck everyone

    Me too! I haven't re apply yet but i kinda know that there's a possibility that i might get rejected, that's why I prepare myself on anything that the Ca BON might throw me whether yes/no... Same questions running thru my head, I got questions to everybody who encounter these concurrency issue and had been rejected by CA BON. Has anybody asked their respected licensing analyst if we can fly back to the Philippines and take whatever it is that they're asking us to take????? I mean I def think that our alma mater back in the Philippines will be more than willing than any other schools here to cater us in our needs. For sure our school is accredited that is why we get apply for nclex , But then there's this issue that they wanted us to fix so I wonder if I fly back and take it again the right way this time.. will they be satisfied and approve me?? since thats they're only problem with us right? Its the easiest most practical and affordable way that i can think of right now, if they agree on this we can all fly back and take it there within a semester since its just 2 or so major theoretical and clinicals.. these are my thoughts let me know if anyone had tried this. ty.

    CA BON requires that all the courses be completed prior to the graduation. They also require that the deficient courses be taken in CA, I'm sure CA BON already has lots of evidence of applicants submitting false documents and way too easy for so many desperate IEN's to simply "buy and submit" the paperwork that's so hanging up everyone.

    A couple of my batchmates e-mailed their evalutors, same answer BUT not about the IEN's mailing in false documents, just the need to take the courses in CA and it's too late as the majority of us have graduated, but not too late for those still in school without their degree.
