    There's one So Cal school metioned somewhere in these threads, but like some or most of them offering there's a 2-3 year waiting list (for IEN's), about the same amount of years waiting for just the regular CA nursing students looking into a regular LVN-RN bridge program.

    There's a few other threads discussing the other schools for both nor and so Cal.

    hi to all thanks for all replies and suggestions.
    im just thinking that the ca bon really didnt plan this correct for all of us international graduates affected by concurrency issue. they are saying there are tons of schools that accepts 2 subjects which is ob or ms or psych for some but i dont see or happen to know schools accept this subjects to be taken by itself. the bon ca should have made it clearly for all of us that we cannot take just 2 subjects but instead the whole nursing class again. weve studied and they dont know what weve been through. and also they are only giving us 3 years to complete this subjects if not our paperworks will be just thrown away. but most schools has waiting list which takes years for us to get in. it is SO SO UNFAIR.

    what im venting is they make this rule enforce to us and they also should have a solutions for us not just make us wonder what school. or should i say bon ca says before to me " there are alot of schools that accepts 2 subjects only" and now im looking where????

    That's why I mentioned in another thread:

    Until the state of CA can get more money to open up more special classes, then things might look up, but the state is broke and budget ctubacks everywhere. To add to this problem, there's not enough clinical hospitals AND a qualified perceptor nurse to assist each nursing student. They are already filled to the top with just their regular enrolled students and those times and spaces will not be given away to students not paying the regular tuition. We just have to wait in line (with a few thousand other international students from all over).

    For the above reasons is why the other schools are unable to accomodate the foreign students at this present time. As such, the CA BON is not obligated in any way to accomodate other than "here's a list and find out yourselves". They have NO responsibility as any more than some of their own US educated students who can't apply into CA if they graduated from a school called Excelsior College (look at the CA BON site and pertains to those graduating after a certain year).

    Remember that the CA BON and the college school system themselves are TWO completely different organizations and don't have any real connections between them. They are operated independent of each other.

    What's real unfair is that our own CHED failed us in that they have known of this "concurrency" problem for years and it was posted by other kababayans, even their own Deans knew but didn't do a darn thing. So now we all suffer. The question now is to see if the new 2013 PH grads will meet the CA BON rules.

    Yes, I've tried and so have several of my batchmates, all (me too) unable to enroll or simply rejected. To be very honest, I don't think there's been even one successful PH person that have been truly enrolled today or been accepted. There was one possible person but he never came back to say so or sounded unsure.

    to me and everyone who got affected by these concurrecy issue is so unfair. we are willing to comply with the requirement they are giving but finding a school is so difficult, its like they are not giving us a chance at all. we all have 3 years only to comply.i got denied january 2012 and i only have 2 years or less to comply now. im so desperate i dont know what to do anymore.

    The very first comments says it all, pretty much....we're in their territory (CA BON requirements, these are very old written policy facts, CHED ignored them for over the years). The US educational system can do concurrency but that's because they "limit" their enrollment so that each US nurse can learn (shadow) a very experienced nurse, one-on-one, not like in the Phils with 25-35 plus students to a patient, etc. Which is why we PH grads couldn't complete our cases in a more timely manner. CHED allowed with the colleges to over-crowd the student population and only hurt us students.
