    kabayan requirements for reciprocity or endorsement will be the same,they will still ask for the copy of our clinical cases...so if we really want to work here in California its either study to complete the deficiency or take the LVN exam..

    ooohhh that really hurts.. Sorry for that kabayan.. That's a little way of being so called "discrimination" I just wish that won't implement to other state.. But I guess BON's nowadays are getting more strict in their requirements, I got problem with my CES report for Vermont too.. They said I got insufficient number of hours in pediatric nursing- Still working on it..

    its ok kabayan,dont be sorry...many of us IEN grads.are having prob.nowadays with the application requiremnts but its ok no matter how strict they are...as long as they are giving us options on what to do its a good sign,meaning our dreams to work as a nurse here in the US is still there...

    Im sorry to hear that! Me too that's my BIG problem I already passed nclex-rn in illinois but i want to endorse it here in california. I hope there will be schools that will cater for us to be granted a CA license.

    you guys are lucky, because here in NJ LPN jobs nowadays are taking so slow, infact they encourage those LPN working in the Hospital to take BSN-RN course because sooner or later they won't allow LPN/LVN. So i just wish I can take nclex Rn this year.. God willing.. Let's keep on praying Kabayan
