    yes, i agree with you. it was mentioned that a post-bsn msn (if i attain this in another state that i can get a license in) will not help with the ob and med-surg requirements of ca because there are no ob and med-surg classes that fall under a post-bsn msn program. thanks for reinforcing that clarification. but from what the ca bon recommended themselves, since they don't consider my bsn to meet their educational requirements, i have an option to enroll in any accredited nursing program in ca that will "complete" my bsn education according to their terms. and from what i was informed, besides a regular bsn or lvn to bsn program (what most are doing actually), this could also be done through a direct entry level/accelerated msn.. a bsn msn degree for graduates who are taking bsn as a second degree or those who already completed an rn program.

    either pathway i take, it doesn't mean it will cancel my initial bsn but remediate it or add on to it as long as it covers ob and med-surg classes that are taken concurrently with clinical (they did not credit mine cos it was not taken concurrently due to the 25 required clinical cases of the pi). and it is up to the school to what they will credit from my original bsn. but this is my last option since in my opinion it is more costly on money and time. in their eyes, ca sees an "almost" bsn but in the philippines and other states, they recognize it. if other states accept my bsn for licensing, i prefer to further my education and practice in that state. and hopefully in time, there will be more opportunities or schools that cater to foreign grads that just need the ob and med-surg courses if ever i want to practice in ca.

    hey there, do you have any updates to the nevada requirements. i'm currently in the process of waiting for my school in the philippines to send the needed forms to cgfns. i was also planning on going back to school after getting my rn license in nevada but the nursing board are becoming a bit more strict each time.

    Check in with "starleviosa", she's the one person here that successfully, got her ATT fairly fast. I don't recall her having this current issue, maybe it is something new?

    I've called the Nevada Board if a Physical Assessment course was needed. They said it would depend on the transcripts and other information given from CGFNS. It might have been that they sent all your transcripts and documents but not your full clinical experience summary. listing down all of your skills laboratory and demo per week. Before I left the school our coordinator was kind to create a summary of clinical experience per week. Hope you can still update us about your status. Meanwhile my request forms are taking forever to reach the school. It's almost 2 weeks.

    hi there! well, so far, i'm waiting on this school to enroll in a course that may be credited by the nevada bon. but i'm also exploring my other options with other states. did you have a physical assessment course in your curriculum? update me on how things go with your nevada application! you might not have to encounter the same problem.

    could it be that your school did not include physical assessment in your course/subject description
    as part of your fundamentals of nursing?
    i think naman they did. they filled out whatever was asked by the cgfns. and i trust they were complete because the ones in charge of filling up the ces school forms, they've been doing it for years and years throughout the schoolyear and summer.. its part of their routine as long as a graduate comes by the office and submit the form.

    Is the full clinical experience summary part of what they ask the school to give for the CES report? I'm sure my school gave everything that was asked from them. Perhaps I need to have the CGFNS reevaluate my transcripts? It's strange 'cause I'm the only one so far that had this issue. I'll let you know how things go. You mailed your request forms to your school? I think that's just about the right time if it's through mail. And once your school gets it, another 1-2 weeks for them to send it to CGFNS. I started my application late March. And to my surprise, the CES report was sent to the Nevada BON third to fourth week of April. I was expecting at least another 4 months.

    Hello, so sorry for the late reply! I am yet to hear of another person that encountered the same problem as me so you might not as well. I heard from Kuyafern, he heard another foreign grad who applied in Nevada was required to take a Med-surgical class.. I'm not sure if he/she is also from the Philippines. Don't feel sad, the best thing you can do is try and see by applying. Keep positive so you can focus on your review. I am currently working on finding out about a possible continuing education course that I may take that is usually given to those lacking PA units to enter a master's program. At the same time, I'm also working on possible other states that I may apply to.. I'm trying to get to the root of what happened with my CES report first though. I'll keep you updated! Let me know how your Nevada application goes. Good luck to you too!
