    i was currently denied the eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN in CA.
    i studied at philippines and go back here right after may graduation.
    my analyst suggest me to take the LVN test.she also told me that she can forward my requirements from CA BRN to CA LVN and pay a $30 fee for forwarding the documents.
    when i checked the LVN site.Im confused to what application form should i fll up.

    Have you had you credentials evaluated by the board of nursing yet? If you apply, which may take months, then they will see if you are eligible to take the NCLEX. They will send you an ATT, but if you have a problem with cases then they will send you the classes that you will need to take. Majority are being required to take medical surgical nursing and redo their OB cases with theories i believe. You shouldn't assume the classes because they may require you to take less classes or more depending on your evaluation.
    If you want to enroll on classes, contact the nearest schools in your area. Ask if they are willing to accommodate you from other 100 applicants to be in the program. It's very difficult. There are other routes, such as applying in states. just not these 12 states
    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Georgia
    Illinois
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Maryland
    North Dakota
    Oklahoma
    Vermont
    Virginia
    Washington
    *Nevada

    *I've added Nevada because recently there have been 3 applicants who was required to take a physical assessment exam and a level 2 medical surgical subject.

    Don't limit your option to only California. There are 39 other states out there.

    Wow, that's great you're close by SFSU. That's one of the schools that was offering the deficient courses, your best answer is right at your doorsteps.

    I would take a stroll over to their school and enquire at the nursing program office, let us know your findings. Good luck!

    Do you plan on working in the state you made your initial application in? If so IELTS may still be required when endorsing license. You can however go to another state and there is a fee for CGFNS to send CES report to new state. You can not send your copy it must come direct from CGFNS

    I am really sad about this. seriously. I am processing my NCLEX applications only to find this out because a friend told me about this issue and I, of course researched how true this is. Just a question though, do you know of anybody who applied recently that was approved to take the NCLEX exams? Because if that's the case, I would just stop my application. It is big money too. and I can't afford to waste it. :-(
