    @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

    my cousin took it after she failed 2x in the NCLEX RN. she applied for it 2 years ago im not sure if they still allow this thats why i keep trying to call the BVN, to make sure if we can. As for the things she sent was her fnger print, the form, payment and her TRANSCRIPTS and things the BVN needed, she sent clinical rotations and class schedules too in case, whatever she sent to the NCLEX RN app she sent the same thing for the LPN exam. she passed the first try EASY. she keeps teling me the NCLEX PN is so much easier compared to the RN, i thought about it too, I was a deans lister back in college i was top 20 of my batch, i had good grades but why cant i pass the NCLEX RN, iwas so confident on my first try, 80, 2nd 75, 3rd try 75, still NOTHING. while i had friends who barely studied passed in VERMONT one take. could cali be a lot harder? or O.A lng? one things for sure.Im not the typical filipino who has so much pride to become a nurse just to buy that nice BMW or that big house with maxed ou creditcards/ ANY JOB isfine as long as its nursing related, this is my calling, i really want to help people and make a difference in someones life. I guess this is just from the experience i had as a care giver for the past year. LIFE is hard but all we can do is keep fighting to survive

    I applied the first time FEBUARY 2nd week 2010, and get this. I got my ELIGIBILITY in just 3 weeks in CA RN. March 4th week i think i got my ATT. imagine a bsn grad of the philippines sent all myreqs and got approved that fast in CALI.thatsthe main reason why i applied in cali because thats was one state i knowthat had less BS. not like florida i had to applythis and that, paythis and that.

    as for your question my first take was
    MAY 12, 2010 stopped at 80
    AUGUST 17, 2010 2nd take at 75
    SEPTEMBER 21, 2011 my 3rd take stopped at75

    during these 3tries I had no problems RE-APPLYING what so ever, I graduated march 2009.

    Its weird because when i sent my re-app and money of 150 bucks last october 2011. after a month i got a letter asking for my CASES, so i sent them went to my schoolhadthem send it since i was in the philippinesfor vacation.after 2 weeks later i got DENIED. I talked to BRN but it was impossible to tallk to my analyst, they are too busy to handle people at the moment, so i talked to the OPERATER guy the dude you talk to when you press ZERO lol. but yeah he said i just have to comply with their new policy, the CA RN is subject to change its laws at any given moment. so i thought about taking the LVN, still no worries for me if im a BSN grad taking a LVN shift in career, a job is a job, we get paid either way. gotta be practical these days, the nursing home i work for now as a care giver said once i pass my LVN i got a job waiting for me and it starts at 23 an hour, way better than making 14 bucks an hour if you ask me

    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
