    Hi,if you pass the NCLEX-RN exam outside California do you need to work in the state as a nurse where you take your exam before you can transfer in California or request for license for endorsement?

    It will not matter if you do pass the NCLEX in any state, as to apply into CA via thru license endorsement, CA BON will request your college records and if those are already not meeting the minimum requirements, it will be denied.

    My friend passed her NCLEX in florida and worked for more than two years she applied for reciprocity here in CA but got denied.

    i think it's because she didn't met the required requirements that BRN-CA is asking for. Could be due to concurrency issues regarding her cases and theory.

    Hi,I got the same problem as other NCLEX applicant do!I got a letter from BON states that my theory and clinical cases/practice is not concurrent and that I have to go back to school and complete the additional course work,even if its not OK we have to go back to school to meet their requirements but the real problem is there is no School from their approved list that offer that additional course anymore.We called most of the school that listed on their website,but all of them said that they don't have that course.Its so depressing and frustrating that just to take the exam is so difficult and then after we passed this trial of applying and taking the exam here comes another hard part for us to find a job.Well I hope BON knows how to compensate on this problem.They want us to go back to school,then they should give us the real school we need.

    Anyway does anyone know any school approved by the BON that still offer this course???

    i have repeated my nclex rn exam at cali board and i have recieved a letter requiring clinical rotations and so much..after i have requested from my school all the requirements and submitted to cali board...guess what cali board wrote me a respond that my application is concurrent or wait for their decisions...i came to find out that the truth is they no longer wanted foriegn graduates.Whats the point of asking those requirements if denied an applications,cost money and time.Why not just tell foreign graduates who will ne taking nclex board not to pass requirement to them..really disappointing.Make me really sicked.Then ....just yesterday i spoke to oregon board director i was told that they are requiring now a local board(frm your country and 3 years clinical experience local country and if you were a graduates of morethan 3 years ,want you back to restudy again.Very disapponted.She even know whats goin on in Cali board...im assuming that all states must be affected and tougher now to get nclex rn..Im US citizen ,went to Manila to finish my nursing and this is what im getting out of all the money i spent in school and my time..i tried florida state but rquiring english proficiency test,new mexico same thing but if you live in compact state you cant take new mexico board exam...nevada samething.Im really sad and disappointed i fe like no luck and where else could i inquire?sad

    Kasy, I too feel your disappointment and anger, but have you read all the other topics in the other International forums? It gets worse.

    There are already 12 other states requiring that we take our courses on a concurrent basis, which is 100% the fault of our own educational system, thanks to the CHED, PRC and PNA. It was reported they are all trying to correct their mistakes that has been in existence since 1987! I think most of PH grads were just born around then and they never ever took the needed measures to make sure we complied with US minimum standards.

    Did you read Geegeebaby's post above? She said it all and then some. Those that are going to graduate from PH probably from 2014 on will not be affected as finally the light bulb went off.

    You do also have to know that even if you have a license from another state with lot of experience, you can't endorse back into CA or any state with the concurrency issues, since you'll be asked for your transcripts all over again.

    TO: Kassy:

    We have three options as a foreign student now (if you want to stay in CA):

    You can do 2 things: (one doesn't allow you to remain in CA to work or practice)

    1. Go back to school in an accredited program in CA. But just know it's nearly impossible to find them and if you do, there are thousands of other students from India, UK, Phil, China, Russia, etc going after those 1-3 spots, if that. Most courses are only offered once a year.

    2. Apply for licensure in another state that do not have the concurrency requirements, but so far, we know of 12 other states that do, look over in the International forums, there might be more states enforcing those requirements. This option doesn't allow you to work in CA at all, as you're not able to endorse the license over for the same denial reasons of your CA application.

    3). Apply to become an LVN, you can have your transcripts sent over from the CA BON staffer, you need to go to the CA LVN website, as they are different from the RN side. Just know that LVN jobs are even tougher to get as many hospitals are no longer hiring as many, some places are even letting them go.

    One reason the CA BON was cracking down on the foreign students was it was noted that many fail the NCLEX more than once and that's a reflection on the educational system of at least for PH grads and nurses. In the States, it's over 85% overall passing versus PH was under 50%, more like 43% passing the first time. From my understanding, CA BON as in most states, they base the educational background as the main foundation.
