    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

    Yeah, i also read that post but I lost track of it. Do you know the name of the poster?Yes, that might work, hopefully. I also have an idea. Someone told me, I can contact my school and make them switch the clinical rotations according to the theory class, then for formality, let someone have the clinical instructors sign the form. But I already mailed mine. =/

    And from what I've read here, others are having a hard time looking for schools which only offer classes of their deficiency (OB and MS).

    Do you think that is ethical? Falsifying a record is illegal.

    Yes. Sorry for that. Should not have thought about it. Don't do it, it's unethical. Don't take the risk. Let's just comply to their new requirement.

    @stacey, why you dont try the NCLEX- PN im sure you can pass that exam. Im LVN but im RN too in phil. the concept almost the same in NCLEX-RN but NCLEX- LVN more on basic type which is easier..
