    Good information, fjellgren. Good luck on returning to California and finding a job here. You have a better chance than most with 4 years of experience. You can also consider travel assignments.

    So does this exemption apply to ONLY those who obtained their CA license?

    What about those nurses who got their license outside of CA from another state?

    Do you think they would be denied the endorsement process as then, their college transcripts would have to be reviewed by the CA BON and we all know what's going to happen to those application.

    Yep. ONLY the California licensees before the stricter implementation of the concurrency/curriculum requirements. At least that's what according to the BRN rep I spoke to.

    Were you not issued a license card/number ever due to you not having a US Social Security number/card?

    Be advised that my case may be different to yours because I have a US Social Security at the time that I got my license back in 2008. I was issued a license no problem and I now have a current license active again.

    Please elaborate and maybe I can shed some light on your situation.

    Well, good luck. It's really tough coming here in the US nowadays unlike before. Just do what you gotta do and you'll be okay.

    Thanks for the info. I really can't find the answers on their website & couldn't get a chance to talk to them. Passed my NCLEX last 2007 & just got my SSN here in CA. For what I understood and have read from others, I need to apply for licensure and attach my NCLEX pass letter right? With the fee & change of address & name form, but do I really have to take CEU's?? Do they still need my RN Philippine license? Thanks.
