    thatis because of the concurrency clinical cases. what about going back in the same university where u graduated and take the same ncm and finish the case with the same sem? making sense right? ask the CA BRn coz that is what i will do
    i dont know if thats possible for me. Did you already ask the ca brn if they will let you do that and let you take the exam afterwards?

    Doesn't work that way, other batchmates asked and others have reported the same: You MUST have completed your entire nursing program PRIOR to your graduation date.

    if they will let u take the ob and med surg bcoz of the concurrency well why not do it in your school where you can finish 3 things at the same time like ncm rle and the clinical cases at same sem esp now that there are few students enrolling in bsn esp in the philippines now. ask the BRN coz i know someone did it already

    Well, that's certainly good news if true!

    Did this person you know get the ATT in CA already? As this is the first time ever posted of anyone meeting the concurrency in CA by getting the deficient courses re-done by going to the Phils. but again that's good news if they are going to make it possible versus trying to get into the near impossible CA schools.

    So you're saying the CA BON allowed this person you know to retake the needed deficient courses in the PH (not in CA) by submitting another transcript showing proof of them making them concurrent?

    We had come to understand that the deficient courses could only be taken in CA and this was to prevent the possibility of the passing of false documents. Recently, we come to find out that the CA BON will accept out of state courses to meet the concurrency rules (as posted by lyly and SoCalNurses88).

    Just received a denial letter from my analyst! although i expected this will really happen. Now, i am ambivalent whether to just take the 2 classes (ob&ms) which i know will be hard looking for schools offering this or just do nclex pn and take lvn-rn bridge afterwards. Anyone having the same insight? Thanks

    I have been waiting for an MS class for two years now. Im in contact with a school facility who is deciding whether or not to open a section specially those for international graduates who are in the situation like all of us are in. It will be in san diego, california. If it goes through, I will let you all know! =)

    Great news! You may wish to start a new topic if you need other interested people to sign up on a list if the school needs to see "demand". I'm sure you'll get a pretty good long list.

    Hopefully, this San Diego school will not have the problems the other CA schools that tried to offer these deficiency courses.

    We know that CSU-Fresno and possibly Victorville College (??) have tried or still trying. But one has maybe offered to do this in the 2014 summer school season, but ran into some common problems (as with any CA college in this terrible economy): insufficient budget, funding shortage, lack of qualified preceptors, enough classroom instructors and or hospital co-operation, all of which must happen at the same time in order for this to be successful.

    Do you know or can discreetly inquire if there's going to be a student limitation size? Or simply offered to just a few (say less than 5-10 international student per semester) as I know, any school's priority is going to be for their own already enrolled nursing students and not wanting to hurt the current students by crowding up the available spaces.

    As for the class, i'm thinking that the school's admin wants to know that there will be people who will sign up for the class. After having to deny plenty of international graduates seeking to take MS, he made it seem like there was really high hopes that the section will open up for Medical-Surgical.. just waiting for the decision from the director.

    The two other posters who needed interested students with at least 30-40 possible applicants it seems "filled" up the interest list in about 1-2 weeks. These were for the CSU-Fresno and Victorville schools.

    That's why you need to find out from the director what sort of minimum number of international students does he need to offer these courses. Is he talking of just 2-3-5 or 20-30-50?

    Just know that in CA alone, there was some numbers mentioned of the PH students looking for such courses was between 4,000-5,000 and I suspect that number will grow again, once the 2013 grads are finding the love letter from the CA BRN.

    It does make me wonder if those 1,000's (PH) do pass the NCLEX-RN and the CA new grads is having a near 50% unemployment level (CA BRN survey results), will those from outside of the country be looking at 90 - 95 +% unemployment rates, since the hiring preferences in CA (and most state) are going to the local CA grads and out of state US educated (but those unemployment numbers are even higher than for the CA grads for the outsider state grads). I don't have actual statistics on that part, just from what my USA educated nursing friends tells me and that's based from their out of state friends.

    I've quietly been following this for a while now. Glad to hear some positive development, I wish I had the finances to really get those MS and OB done but for now I've decided to do the LVN route. Been reviewing for my LVN, god willing I'll pass

    Btw has anyone here tried the LVN-RN 30 unit route, I mean for all that time and waiting list just to get two classes done might as well just go for the LVN-RN 30 units instead.
