I am a German registered nurse, and moved to California 2 years ago. I submitted all my nursing documents/degree to the BoN, then received a letter that says I need to do OB classes in order to be approved for the NCLEX exam. Attached I found a list of colleges/universities that offer this course.
First I started to contact the local ones, quickly learning that this is not gonna work. So I tried all places within a good 200 miles radius, no success. 2 Colleges were willing to put me on their waiting list, the lady from the BoN told me to be patient.
This was 1 year ago. After contacting these places again, I learned that it is very unlikely that I will move up on their waiting lists in the next couple of years.
Last week I contacted every single school from that list (103 places, from Eureka to San Diego), willing to relocate if this is what I need to do.
41 refusals so far, number increasing.
I am desperate and frustrated and confused. Don`t know what to do anymore. I miss my job so bad and am ready to do whatever it takes.
Yesterday I asked the lady from the BoN if I can make up the hours back in Germany at my old school. Or what other options I have, since I am running out of time.
I was told this is not recommended.
Has anyone been in the same situation before?? I am thankful for any advice and piece of info.
