Hello fellow Nurse graduates struggling to get licensed as a RN in California. I have some news. I found a school that could possibly help with our licensing situation in CA. It's Victor Valley College in VictorviIle. I know it's far for most of you but if you really want to stay in Ca and work here's your chance. I have been in contact with the nursing director at VVC. They may have a program for us. It's not for sure yet because they don't have the students (ppl with our situation). If we can get a minimum of 10 ppl they might approve it. I say MIGHT because they're thinking of how much everything will cost. Professors and hospital for clinicals aren't cheap. Reqs in order to be approved are that you need to be deficient in both maternal and advance med-surge. Not just one. If Ca BRN only pointed out one of those two I can't help you. VVC is creating this program based on only those who need both maternal and med surge. Also this program would have to be during the winter and summer. Not spring or fall like most schools. They dont want us to interfere with their nursing program (space/professors). If you are interested please let me know. I will be the one to generate the list to present to the nursing director at VVC. Also if you know anyone else that is looking for a school, please have them contact me. The sooner the list is generated the sooner we can get to the next step in getting this program started.

Thank you to those who are interested! I've been doing research and I noticed a lot of people are in need of just one of the two classes as well. At the moment I am trying to speak with the director to see if he would still accept those in need of just one of the classes as long as the foreign grad is willing to take BOTH classes. I know some of you don't need both but it beats waiting a few more years for a slot. I am hoping the director considers it. So if you need both MS/OB or just one of the two please let me know!!
Good luck to us all! Spread the word!
UPDATE: I was able to contact the nursing director from VVC. He said once a list of potential applicants are generated and the courses needed are identified, the faculty will discuss the issue in greater detail and decide which courses they are willing to teach.
Let's hope for the best and keep on building the list!
