    I am currently having the same problem, I failed the NCLEX RN 3x in CALIFORNIA, when I re-applied for the exam I got a strange letter asking for my CLINICAL CASES, when I complied with all the reqs they asked me for after 2 weeks i got another letter stating "I DO NOT MEET THE MINIMUM REQUIRMENTS. and they asked me to enroll in a CALIFORNIA ACCREDITED nursing program. Now Im confused what to do next, I have been trying to call the boards but they keep telling me to comply since this has been a new issue and change of rules in the CALI BRN. Its been a tough year for me working full time as a care giver here at the same time reviewing for my NCLEX RN, Im supporting myself and dont have enough time and money to re-enroll in some nursing programs again. I really want to consider taking the LPN EXAM in cali. is this still POSSIBLE? my cousin did the same thing 2 years ago. gven the stuation i am a BSN GRADUATE of 4 years in the PHILIPPINES SWU. cebu city. and I am a permanent resident for 10 years now and I have a SSN. I did not take the NLE back in the Philippines because I was going back to L.A right after grad. I tried calling the BVN if Ican take the LPN exam but their phone lines are too busy. ANY ADVICE?

    I dont mind becoming an LVN at all. Its about being practical these days, If I can make 22 an hour Im happy with that.

    Y ou can contact your evaluator and ask if they can do that. i think they can coz thats what she told me, do you know anybody that graduated as a bsn and took the lvn exam? Do you think we will be qualified?

    @stacey can you PM me? then I'll give you my FB so we can chat there, So we can both guide each other with this problem. I currently live in JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA. The only reason why I applied for the CALI RN back in 2010 is because it was a lot easier to apply in cali compared to FLORIDA. I was reading the FLORIDA FORMS and I think it also required us to take an IELTS or CG for some reason for international grads.

    In regards to the LPN exam in CALI, my cousin in L.A who failed 2x also took the LPN exam and passed it the first try, shes working at a nursing home now making 23 an hour and happy with it. She plans to take her RN soon but hasnt applied yet because she is afraid to have the same problem as us at the moment. I tried calling the BVN but still busy at the moment. as soon as i get the GO SIGNAL to send my application for LPN I will send it ASAP and be serious with LVN instead. I actually see this as a career for me. Although it would be nice to be an RN its kind of tough now with all thats happening and with the economy today. Got to be practical these days
