    @ jeffbsn...kabayan tnx.so much for your quick reply..and for answering it in detailed..so it just shows that there is really no exact date when they implement the new rules(regulation,requirements etc..)..

    no exact date but if i can make a guess im sure it had to be just recently. because my sister recently got her att just 3 months ago. and she applied for the first time with no hassels or askng anything else from her. i guess it might be her first time to take the nclex rn? i have a feeling they are wiping us out, so manyfilipino bsn grads applying this exam and they just thought of some dumb reason to reject us because our cases are not concurrent with the lectures. how can we have concurrent cases with lectures when its hard as it is to get cases with the numerous nursing students and limited o.r d.r cases. i think this is really a way to limit filipino nurses in cali and the demand of so many new grad rns cant get a job all we can do is wait. kabayan add me on fb if you want my email is the same as my fb just search it, jayboy speaks im online there regularly to keep in touch with issues like this

    At the moment CA will only accept applications from people with a US SSN which for most are either US citizens or people with a visa allowing them to live and work in the US or immigrant visa

    Did anyone has resolved this problem??I have the same situation. The BRN is asking for my clinical rotation and I mailed them the list of clinical duties. Is that what they are asking for?or is it the RLE cases or procedures?

    @ retetestis... yup. thats it. you'd have to send them a copy of your RLE book, and cases. whats up? haha! i did that. they told me i dont meet the minimum requirements for MS and OB... due to concurrency issues. same explanation theyve given to a couple other internationally educated nurses. so, the next step for us is to comply and go back to school for the deficiencies. or apply in other states.

    @nursewholikesnursing

    wow! From what I've read, they based it from the schedule of our theory(class) and clinical rotation, that after we attend the theory class, we must be exposed to the same field on our next clinical rotation. Is that what the BRN is requiring us?If that's the case, then anyone I know who is a BSN graduate from the Phil will have to repeat their classes! From my opinion, this is really insane. And first of all, the BRN should have posted this kind of requirement beforehand while we are applying for the NCLEX so we will know what to expect.

    So what did you do??also thanks for the reply

    yeah... 99 percent of us. haha! the brn supposedly makes changes yearly without prior notice. i dont know. but, the outlook is gloomy for us who are foreign graduates. what im doing right now... a lot of research about what everyone else who is in the same predicament is doing. haha! and yeah, what they mean by concurrency is that you have to finish both clinical and theory at the same time... the thing is we did take them concurrently but clinicals are pretty hard for us to complete along with theory cause of lack of patients, or too much students. or just... plain unlucky. lol thus, our fate. right now, im also looking into going back to school... which according to my calculations is going to cost me real big money. so... umm. yeah, good luck to us.

    theres this idea though that you can try... another poster here mentioned it... she asked if anyone has tried contacting their schools and have them explain to the CABON the reason our clinical and theory are not concurrent. it might work. lol
