    HAve you been already enrolled? I got the same deficiency of subject when the BON from CA sent me a letter. I would be willing to relocate if that school would be really helpful, I really have no idea on what to do next, can you guys please guide me?
    No, I can't afford the $$$ tuition and books and supplies cost.

    But since it sounds like you're willing to relocate and sounds like you can pay the tuition, then, YES!

    Call the numbers provided and or e-mail the two schools as soon as possible, once you meet the other requirements as mentioned, just go for it, why wait any longer?

    You can't just enroll right away.There are some steps to take like a regular nursing student here in the US.Before you enter the RN program,there are some pre-requisite subjects that is required to take because some of the subjects here are not equivalent from our subjects in the Philippines.And our old transcript should be transferred to US transcript,so it should be evaluated by an evaluation agency.

    I was actually been applying to different financial aids and scholarships since I got the bad news. So sad to know why is has to be implemented that fast and our country didn't pay as much attention to the requirements now the students are now suffering, wasting time and loosing a lot of money to apply here and there and to ask for another set of credentials back in the Philippines because I already passed everything to the BON..

    If only I can enroll right away, but tuition here in US is really a lot. And the schools here keep telling me that I need to do the entire nursing program, so that means I need to study again for 4yrs??? which I don't want to happen because the costs and all is really burden, that's why I trying hard to look at other options.

    Have you heard back from any of the different financial aids or scholarships you applied to? I didn't know that if one got their degree from an international school, that one could qualify for a US educational loan or scholarship? But if you can go for it, as in my case, I would need a strong peson with good credit? Good luck!

    Well for now my application for the Federal financial aid is being processed, but I am not sure yet if I will be able to get it. But I am really hoping though because I badly need it..

    Hi, were you able to apply to the Board of Vocational Nursing to apply to take the NCLEX PN? How far have you go? As far as my case, it's been more than a month now since I applied to Board of Vocational Nursing until now I haven't received any feedback letter from them.

    The issue is foreign educated nurses fail 70percent , that is unacceptable. US nurses are taught to read the nurse practice act of their state. Passing the NClEX the first time and understanding how the BON operates is basic nursing practice.To solve your problem become a lvn, and take a bridge program to become R N, problem solved.
    Hi, I would like to ask if you know some one who had been denied by the CA Board of RN who applied to the Board of Vocational Nursing to take the NCLEX VN? As on my case, I was denied because my clinicals are not concurrent with the theoretical. After receiving the denial letter, I applied to the Board of VN hoping that they gonna allow me to take the exam. I do hope, it's been more than a month now since I applied. I haven't heard from them.
