    Yes, it's pretty tough out there. She tried going thru an agency, but they were not much help, as you mentioned they need nurses with some experience.

    The agency was mostly for those wanting to work in nursing homes, home health care or private places. They were mostly for adult care, she wanted pediatrics or if adult, in a regular hospital.

    Have you read this person's topic about new grads, international new grads and the job market?

    CLICK on her topics, but looked at her last block comments, it brings good light to think about and good information. But do read the FIRST block part too.

    Her quote: Oh, there's also one big misconception of the overseas students, based on my current dealings with the ones that I'm trying to help out. They all see the websites of hospitals all over this country and so many job openings for nurses!

    But there are a couple of glaring issues: (that they are overlooking, but clearly stated in the job description)

    The hospitals are looking for:

    (a). EXPERIENCE, in most cases 1-2 years minimum and some other specialities 3-5 years of RN experience.
    hey steppybay,

    I was just wondering if you've applied for the board yet? I have a question. You know how there are steps we have to follow in applying and sending the requirements, do we have to follow the exact steps or can one requirement be first than the other. For example can the Nursing board receive my TOEFL results and CES even though they haven't received my application form yet. I've read somewhere that some steps can vary but some should be followed.

    Depends on the state, for example Florida requires CES done first and they receive it before your application to them is sent. If you can and it doesn't state anything on the BON website do the application a month or 2 after you start the CES

    Haha, I wish I could apply for a board! But like so many, I'm one of the cases where I don't have a SSN, so it's study study for the NCLEX-RN exam while looking for a state without the SSN requirement.

    I hope someone others can help better answer your other questions(s).

    Hi andrea. basically were on the same page.... i got denied too to take the CA exam because of the "concurrent issue", was advised to take clinical and theory...

    im debating where to take it.. 1.New york 2.Minnesota 3.Nevada... but since "steppybay" mention that her friend was denied then i guess i need too re-think again before i consider nevada. :spin:..... cause i want to work in CA.
    That narrows down my choices


    I hope for the best to all of US!!! God Bless !!!

    Guys, please check with CA on endorsing license because I am sure you will still have the same issues because CA like to do their own assessment so the same paperwork will have to be submitted

    If California did not accept the RN endorsement from Nevada, I'm pretty sure they will apply the same rule/decision to whatever state you are licensed. I know you all have a reason why you want to work and settle in California. But be open to other possibilities and do not focus on just one state.

    I worked in the US before. My initial state of licensure was Oregon, then endorsed it to Kansas where I found a work. These two states are unpopular for Filipino grads but it sure gave me a lot opportunities and experience that I can't possibly get if I kept sticking myself to California where most of our relatives are.

    Good luck everyone.

    You should either call FL BON to verify or look at Licensure Information for Applicants Educated outside the US and in non-NCSBN Jurisdictions. #6 and #7 relates to English competency and then call FL BON if you have any addition questions.
