    Bvnpt said they are still working on 10/17/12 applications. I guess I still have to wait for 2 more months.. Sigh

    Just remember, the BVNPT did not get funds to hire more people to handle all the denials from the RN Board so they are at 4 months right now. I asked my friend about something someone posted earlier. If you graduated before 2005, you don't need a Declaration as internet and distance learning wasn't so common back then.

    Did your contact friend at the BVNPT say anything about the same type of concurrency item that's listed on the actual BVNPT website but not being enforced and might that happen one day soon?

    Here's that link: BVNPT - Unapproved Nursing Programs

    The Board cannot qualify an applicant to take the NCLEX, or to be licensed, after completion of an unapproved nursing program, even if the unapproved nursing program represented to the student that it was approved. Therefore, an applicant who attended one of these programs, found eligible by another state to take the examination, and successfully passed the examination is not eligible for licensure in California.
    Indicators that the program may be unapproved or cannot be deemed equivalent:

    • The program is not listed on the Board's website as an approved vocational nursing program or on the California Board of Registered Nursing website as an approved registered nursing program.
    • Lack of proof of accreditation in California (i.e., documentation from the Board verifying a specified period of accreditation). (The nursing program may tell you that it is approved.)
    • Lack of a course syllabus for each course taught.
    • Lack of information regarding credentials for each program instructor that comply with the Vocational Nursing Regulations in California.
    • Representation of online, distance, and/or blended instruction.
    • Representation that transcripts and/or degrees will be issued by an out-of-state or international program rather than the program where instruction is provided.
    • Lack of concrete information regarding clinical instruction, such as the location of the clinical instruction or that clinical instruction is to be completed abroad.
    • Lack of concurrent instruction of theory and clinical practice.
