    To rhony_286, I cannot reply to your private message since they require at least 15 quality topics before I am allowed to use the pm tool.

    Anyway,thank you very much for your response. It gives me more hope that things will move smoothly. As for the job market here in Cali for nurses, it actually is a mixed bag. Other areas need nurses like smaller cities but as for major cities like San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego, expect more competition as more take up nursing. I think the trend in my opinion is, the farther you are from these big cities, the more chances that you will get hired.

    At the moment, they are being understanding with foreign nurses' situation because of retro. During my time 2008, they allowed me to apply to take the exam without SSN. Now, they don't. :-)

    just an update. i did checked nursys.com to see if my name was regitered already in CA BRN and thank God my name is finally there! its been a month since my school and i submitted the required documents including the NCLEX pass letter (which was expired already) and a photocopy of my SS card. Now im just waiting for them to mail me my RN license. Thank God everythings ok now. Hope those who are in the same issue as I was before would be able to see this post so they'd know their NCLEX exam is still valid! cheers o us and thanks to ms. azir too! God bless us all!

    Nope. Just the SSN.

    i also arrived january and have submitted my application and ss card after having passed the exam in 2007. i was also asked to submit the list of cases, curriculum outline and academic calendar. i was wondering, did you submit your passed letter as what azirr05 / scarlet14 did? cause i didn't until i read these threads.... i was worried the reason why i was asked a lot more requirements is because of my failure to do this...
