Has anyone been successful in endorsing their license recently. we dont want to waste our time and effort in doing so if we all end up getting denied. thanks. feedback will greatly be appreciated
0Dec 6, '12 by Theking04Hi guys. I am an NCLEX passer of New Mexico and graduated in the Philippines. I am wondering about my license if I can endorse it to CA or not? If ever I will still face the same problem about getting denied I am considering to move to New York. Does anyone know any problem/s on applying or endorsing to New York? I really need your comments/suggestions. Thanks
0Dec 7, '12 by Esme12, ASN, BSN, RN Senior ModeratorQuote from Theking04The simple answer is Yes. Every state in the US has different licensing requirements. You will have to comply with the requirements of the state you are applying. It doesn't matter where you went to school. There are schools in the US with concurrency issues and CA will not license them either.Hi guys. I am an NCLEX passer of New Mexico and graduated in the Philippines.

As posted by nrskaren ]Nursing Community for Nurses and Nursing Students "only those states that have explicit education requirements of concurrent theory and practicum will Philippine nurses have licensure issues.
Excelsior college new york nursing graduates have had same issue recently. see state board licensure requirements here]
These are states having concerns over concurrent theory and practicum, so i would look at other 37 states to obtain license:
0Dec 21, '12 by mikayjestherHi, I sent my application for NCLEX RN (CALIFORNIA) on Dec. 5, 2012. When do you guys think I will get the letter of eligibility? or that denied letter all of you are talking about? hahahaha.
This is what I sent to them:
1 CHECK OF $150, MADE PAYABLE TO THE BOARD OF REGISTERED NURSING.
2. NCLEX APPLICATION FOR LICENSURE BY EXAMINATION WITH 2"X 2" PASSPORT-TYPE PHOTOGRAPH ON THE RIGHT BOTTOM SIDE OF THE PAGE.
3. COPY OF MY OLD PASSPORT - TO SEE THE DATES 4 YEARS I WAS IN THE PHILIPPINES
4. COPY OF MY NEW PASSPORT
5. COPY OF MY RE-ENTRY PERMIT
6. COPY OF MY SOCIAL SECURITY CARD
7. COPY OF MY GREENCARD
8. COPY OF MY PRC LICENSE CARD
9. COPY OF CERTIFICATE OF GRADUATION
10. COPY OF REQUEST FOR TRANSCRIPT
11. COPY OF BREAKDOWN OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR INTERNATION NURSING PROGRAMS
12. LETTER ABOUT NCM102&104 FROM SCHOOL
13. COPY OF TRANSCRIPT
14. COPY OF SUMMARY OF RELATED LEARNING EXPERIENCES
15. COPIES OF MY CASES (ALL CASES ARE CONCURRENT WITH THEORIES AND MORE THAN 6-7 CASES EACH AREA)
16.COPY OF MY RLE >>> THE WHOLE BOOK, EVEN BLANK PAGES, EVERYTHING!!!
THE ONLY THING THAT IS MISSING IS THE ACADEMIC CALENDAR ( MY REGISTRATION CARDS). UNFORTUNATELY I DON'T HAVE THEM ANYMORE. SO DO YOU THINK I WOULD GET THE ELIGIBILITY?????????

0Dec 22, '12 by michelle02I graduated from the Philippines in 2005. Migrated to US with a green card in 2006. I am now a US citizen. Failed Nclex-RN many times since 2006 and got frustrated and depressed. I last tested march of 2010; I had no problems with getting eligibility and ATT. Now I am married and just had my first baby. I want to retake the exam. I called CA BON 3weeks ago and to ask them if they still have my file; they asked for my SS# and found my file. They said I don't need to re-submit my requirements: I just need to pay the re examination fee and wait for eligibility; then ATT then pay pearsonvue to schedule an exam; just like normal process. Now I am reading these posts about being an IEN ... I honestly don't know what to think. Now I am scared to re apply for the exam because I don't want to waste my money on fees that cannot be refunded should problem arise. Advise please

0Jan 4, '13 by Theking04Has anyone experienced the concurrency issue when endorsing a license from another state to California?
0Jan 4, '13 by loriangel14 GuideIt doesn't matter if you are endorsing from another state. You still will have to meet the same requirements.Concurrency will still be an issue.
0Jan 5, '13 by Silverdragon102, RN AdminQuote from Theking04Yes we have had members post they have had issues with endorsing to CA. CA do their own assessment so whether initial or endorsing license requirements would be the sameHas anyone experienced the concurrency issue when endorsing a license from another state to California?
0Jan 12, '13 by orchidgeehi jrmRN,
as usual, we have the same case. I've been calling almost all colleges and universities too and they wanted me to take the whole 2 year program.but, HELL NO!!!
I don't think we can still be a nurse here in CAli. i don't want you to lose hope. but this is the reality.
Now, i'm starting to apply NCLEX to other state like Florida. and all they were asking was the TRANSCRIPT. no clinical cases whatsoever. and i'm ready to move as soon as i pass the exam.
feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
