    I suggest you look at some of the threads in here regarding the concurrency issues of the international graduates and couldn't sit for the NCLEx-RN.Since you are a licensed VN,why don't you just take a bridge program LVN-RN or BSN?Good luck on your future endeavors.

    Hi! What's your email? I had a few questions regarding Manila Drs. I'm from San Francisco. A 25 year old LVN in California and I'm interested in finishing my RN degree in Manila Doctors.

    I'm guessing the reason you want to get your RN degree (BSN) from the Phils even tho' you're already a CA LVN and not going the LVN-RN bridge route or the LVN-BSN is due to: (a). the long waiting list (of 2-3 years) to get enrolled and taking a chance it might not happen in that time frame, (b). if you can get into a LVN-RN bridge program in CA, it's going to be very expensive, like in the $10,000 x 2 or 3 for tuition or ??

    Whereas going to the Phils, you can start fairly quickly and for a fraction of the cost of a CA education?

    You should realize that attending a PH college at this present time may cause reason(s) for your PH BSN degree to be out of compliance with the CA BON minimum requirements, UNLESS there's been truly 110% that it's been proven with near future PH grads are soon able to pass the CA BON requirements.

    Just know you are still at best taking a big chance of getting denied if the CA BON finds one other deficient or flawed course from the PH curriculum, so saving the time and money in PH may be all for nothing.

    Have you checked the HI BON website? you should also be able to see something on requirements on cgfns website. I don't think there is a problem at the moment with H! as others have recently met requirements
