    hi erick_17
    when did you apply NCLEX-PN? how long did you wait until you got your eligibility?

    Hi everyone. I also have that concurrency problem regarding ms and ob. The thing is, we were able to finish the clinical and theory portions right? So what is the big deal if they were not taken at the same time/same semester? Shouldn't it be more important to them that we were able to complete it? Its just so frustrating.
    I read from a post here about the idea of calling your school and asking them to formally write or call the BON in your behalf to explain that situation. Any one of you tried doing that yet?

    Have no idea either for their reason. The more frustrating part is it's hard to find a nursing program that only provide the ms, ob or psych (according to a post i read here). We will be forced to take the whole clinicals again, worst case scenario. Pls update us.thanks

    Hi, do you also have a deficiency? Yea, that would be really bad. =/ Hopefully it won't happen. I'm still waiting for my analyst to reply, so I haven't had a chance to call any schools yet.but definitely I'll keep you guys posted.

    hello everyone, ive been reading this thread earlier this morning as i was waiting for my att (as i thought id be granted) anyways, i also submitted all of those additional requiremnts (clinical rotation, calendar blah blah blah..) then, this afternoon i recv the letter stating im not eligible same as the reason most of us here had. im so devastated!
    living here in cali and finished my bsn april 2011 then took my nle and passed last july 2011 knowing it would greatly help in my evaluation (thought wrong have i?) well heres another more frustrating news, one of my classmate (same batch) didnt took nle and flew back here soon after graduation and got his att 3 months later without additional requirements and he passed the nclex by dec. im so lost and i dont know what to do now since ive research almost all states requiremnts and they need cgfns ces and will take atleast 6 months to a year before you can be aprove.

    let us stay connected here hoping one could help the other. im already preparing for lvn in case nothing happens. if one has resolved their prob, same as all we have, pls let us know.

    (Graduated UST '10) I applied for NCLEX March 2011, and received a letter telling me to send all of the paper work that was required to a handful of us. The school schedule and clinical duty logs was a pain to finish. I was granted my ATT May 2011, took the NCLEX June 2011 and passed. I guess I was lucky that they weren't as strict as they are now.

    The rule was always there as they reference it to their "rejection" letters. I guess they're just stricter now in actually implementing the said requirements. As to when they decided to do this, who knows..

    A friendly advice would be: if you really really want to stay in California, why not challenge the lpn exam, maybe get a job and go back to college for the Master's. Yes it would be expensive, but it helps you along the way to network and to learn how they do their protocol here and enhance nursing skills too! I recently got in a new grad program and I had the biggest culture shock in my life. Luckily I have a Filipina preceptor and she understands. haha. I'd be going back to school to for my Master's once I saved up a bit too.

    Another option would be to transfer to other state. My batchmates are happily employed in nyc and they seem content. It's unclear though if you can endorse your license to Cali since they would re-evaluate your credentials again.

    Good Luck to all of you! =)

    @ darrelton: I guess its just a case by case basis. are you planning to go back to school for your deficiency?

    @proudpinay: Don't feel down.. um, I had to request it from my school. I hope you get that fixed soon, keep me updated

    @nihaojailan: Yea,they've become more strict.. some just have to go through the complicated process I guess and lucky you for not experiencing that.hehe. Thanks for the suggestions and good luck also on your new grad program :]

    @dee07: im starting to work on my application for lvn, need to start somewhere so i thought of challenging lvn first then maybe after that i might either look for a school that will accommodate me or try other state and move there. but ill have my lvn license first then ill see where it will bring me to. how about u, whats ur plan?

    Oh I see. At least you have a back up plan..um, I'm going to try to look for a school first.Hopefully there's one near where I live. Moving would be hard because its going to add to the additional expenses already.. but yea, good luck to all of us, wherever this might take us.
