    Does anyone know- is it possible to return to Philippines nursing school and retake the deficiencies?
    Kabayan, it's possible BUT you MUST complete the deficiencies BEFORE you graduate, if you already got your degree, it's too late.

    You are then required to take the deficient courses in CA for the reason there's no chance of submitting transcripts or any school records from a PH source (including any bon fide and top PH college) that the CA BON highly suspects may be falsified documents, as there are enough evidence that the CA BON has seen already in their investigations (see click below).

    You can write to your CA evaluator but I can tell you that a few of my batchmates got the same type of reply as I mentioned above last year.

    Where's the EASIEST, THE FASTEST, THE CHEAPEST STATE to get eligibility: to AVOID the different English reading and writing requirements, who doesn't need to have their curriculums reviewed and evaluated, if you don't have a local PH license, etc....here's what I've been trying to tell you guys for months!

    Kabayans, you have to look at the "bigger picture".

    To everyone asking of the same question: just pick whatever state you wish to work in for the next 3-8 years or more. With the strong possibility, this State is where you will plant your roots and watch your babies grow from an infant till they go to college.

    -- First and foremost, you must now have a valid SSN to apply into CA and into most states and one day soon, ALL states will require a SSN and for future renewals. There are zero to a handful of hospital sponsorships in the whole country now, don't count on those, you will have better luck winning the lottery odds. There are some states that will allow you to apply and take the exam if you pass all other requirements, BUT those same states will not issue the actual license and license number until you provide them a valid SSN!!

    -- It makes NO sense to get a license in one state, when you really WANT to work in another, as you need to still PASS that state's requirements you wanted to work in the FIRST place.

    -- You will be spending more MONEY by hopping around one state to another in extra fee$ and possible extra money for certain testing$ and wasting more months waiting and waiting, instead of looking for a job. Why pay double $$$ ??

    **** The FASTEST, the EASIEST, the CHEAPEST state to apply into is the State you feel you will put your roots down for many years, the MINUTE you pass the NCLEX! If that state doesn't meet their requirements AND your needs and desires (weather, salary, etc) now then move on and research and travel to that state if you can. ****

    -- Avoid the 13-14 states that are enforcing the concurrency now, The list of them are mentioned a few times on this forum. Here you go: [COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366][COLOR=#003366]http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...me-760249.html NV was recently enforcing it. Don't be surprised if FL and TX join the concurrency bandwagon one day, it's a very old requirement from years ago before most of us were born (25 plus years).

    -- Forget about trying to ENDORSE-TRANSFER any out-of-state license into CA or ANY of the current mentioned 13-14 other states that are enforcing the concurrency rules, it's NOT going to happen as again, you MUST submit the same college transcripts that already DENIED or will DENY the application, there's no way around to go around this! It doesn't matter if you have 2 years or more of US RN experience, my PH friend tried to endorse her FL into CA and was denied the licensure, citing the same concurrency issue. Same thing with our friend with her NY license, same bad fate.

    -- As you may know or should know, that jobs for us international students are becoming very hard and pretty difficult to get our foor thru the door, as many hospitals even many clinics are hiring their own students that did their clinical time in that hospital or hiring more of that local students or those from the same State. It's known as hiring the "internals". So getting approved and passing the NCLEX-RN is nothing, compared to finding the real thing......a nursing job.

    -- To find out what state you are interested in, the bottom of each page is the list of BON's and you can easily Google...STATE's name followed by "board of nursing"....BINGO! It's all there for the state's requirements, including every one of the Board's has a special ""INTERNATIONAL"" section.

    Good luck, everyone, we can do this, but allow a lot more time than originally planned, be prepared to work in a State you really don't want to be in for several years, take any kind of nursing job someone hires you for and smile

    CAVEAT: Even if one is working for 10 years or more after being a recent PH grad and possess a valid RN license, it's NOT by any means a guarantee of any kind that the States enforcing the concurrency rules will approve your license endorsement, as I'm repeating myself again, it will ALWAYS be based on your original educational background and transcripts. However, one never knows if a evaluator is being careless, one might get lucky, lol.

    does anyone here know if NEW YORK enforced the same concurrency policy regarding foreign nursing graduates? I'm planning to apply NCLEX in New York, but i heard it will take a while to process the application. My concern is, I don't wanna go into all the troubles of waiting and spending and in the end, I'll just get denied. My classmate from PI just got her approval notice to take the exam there but took her 10 months.

    Because NY BON requires CVS you generally are looking at a processing time of 6-10 months and as far as I am aware NY currently are not having issues however that may change. Also make sure it is the state you want to live and work in because if planning to endorse you may still be required to meet new state requirements like CES etc.

    Hi askingbenitez,

    My application to the Florida Board of Nursing is still on process. They're waiting for the CGFNS to approved my credentials.

    While FL doesn't seem to have any issues at present in regards to the concurrency rules, they are very tough on making sure on your clinical hours!! Case in point, two of previous years batchmates have been denied their ATT, they were asked to attend a meeting, but still rejected.

    There was a poster earlier it seems that was able to get her ATT so I guess it depends on the BON people, it may have been depending on what year you got your degree in as it may be a difference of an hour to several that doesn't meet the FL BON minimum requirements.

    Here's a recent posting on another poster's experience: http://allnurses.com/florida-nursing...ng-815407.html Again, I think it depends on where you went in PH and what year that could make or break your FL application.

    What is this? AND why doesn't the person applying know the answers to the questions regarding their foreign education. ARE YOU A BUNCH OF FRAUDS OR WHAT? I am AMERICAN, and I want the American Dream of working as a RN. I have been an unemployed new grad with a qualifying USA education in nursing and I STILL can't get a job! You have a lot of NERVE! Are you going to lose your RN licenses that you should NOT have when they renew. I should get a lawyer and sue the Board of Registered Nursing!

    It's not about fraud or faking something. They're asking how to fill up the Declaration of Nursing Education/Licensure form. In item number 6 and 7, the form asks about the government agency that regulates the practice of nursing in the country where the applicant graduated; and about the agency that oversees the college/s and universities where they graduated. They're just making things clear and don't wanna commit mistakes in filling out the form.

    I don't think someone will post about such inquiries in this website if they're a bunch of frauds. PRC means Professional Regulation Commission and CHED means Commission on Higher Education. In this time, which is really tough, especially to get a job, I don't think that anybody could do frauds just for the sake of licensure when in fact it's harder to get into a nursing job.

    I'm making this post for everybody, and for them to know about the "PRC and CHED" they've been talking about.
