Hello everyone, I know many of you are wondering how I was able to do it. But first lets look back at the events leading to this moment. I Graduated last march 2012 and applied to the board of Nursing within days of coming back... Read More

    Hi there Esme12! the reason why California is having concurrency requirements along with a few other states is based on a post I read from Allnurses.com. the post was about how people were buying fake documents to be eligible to take NCLEX-RN. I'm not sure if this is true but it seems possible. i think California BRN is just trying to make sure that the nurses who take the NCLEX are actual nurses because the health care industry focusses on saving lives. i don't think its fair for us who graduated 4 years in a nursing school while others simply just buy the necessary documents.

    I agree that nurses should go back to school just to learn how the practice is in the United States. When i took my deficiencies in another state i learned so much and i think that it will help me in my future career.

    However for the hundreds if not thousands who are finding it difficult to find a nursing school, the California Board should find a way to help those with concurrency issues. However it is not the fault of the board for they have no control on student enrollment, it depends on the school. It would be nice if they took that into consideration. Pretty soon the rest of the 37 states will adopt the concurrency issue along with the US territories. it is just a matter of time. California was the first and then other states have begin to follow.
    It is not only the Philippines that these state have an issue with. New York recently also had issues with Excelsior and California recently rescinded the acceptance of ICU school of nursing based on the same grounds. The BOON of interest has developed many who wish to cash in on the nursing profession craze and for profit schools have cropped up all across the US.

    Concurrency has been on the books for many states but recently are more strictly enforced. It's a quality of the education issue and it affect US entices as well. Fraudulent documents have not helped the situation.

    California and the other states are not responsible for the education that is received...they are however liable to the citizen of the US to ensure the quality of it's nursing professionals. Even when US students are warned about these facilities that may not be accepted by all states...they insist that their school/eduction is sufficient.

    California is a focus of many nurses not only foreign educated nurses due to the high rate of pay. There are other states they can obtain a license but that will not guarantee thier licensure to CA.

    Buyer beware.

    Congratulations for having your ATT. I have a question, I am also affected by the concurrency issue, Did the BRN ask you for a CHED memorandum Order letter?

    @SoCalNurse88 Mind i ask if you could give me a rough estimate of how much the cost of schooling is? A probable amount of the tuition if you may. You can disregard info on your personal allowances and any additional miscellaneous that you had to cover. As you well know pretty much the main standing reason for taking up nursing is money and not all of us here are well-off neither will the parents be able to cough up some more dough. So could you, please? Just an estimate for the whole duration.

    I've read this whole thread. I'm having the same problem now.i just literally received the letter from Ca BON earlier today and my application has been denied due to the same reason mentioned on this thread. I was willing to take up the units needed to become eligible for nclex but based on what all of you guys said, I didn't know it'll be this hard to find a school that could accomodate me.

    Prior to writing a post on this site I called a school earlier and had set up an appointment with the nursing director sometime next week to have my transcript evaluated, basically to know what exactly I need to take up again or if they could even accomodate me. I'll write back after the appointment. Right now honestly I feel so demotivated. I have no plans of moving to another state or shall I say I'm not able to do that. So my intent is to practice my profession in CA but I guess it will take me alot of work to do than what I was expecting. Now i'm doomed. In a way I'm glad that it's not only me who's got the same situation. But still I'm frustrated now and so demotivated. I'm starting to lose hope.
