    To westcoastguy: the reason I asked what your citizenship is that it will make a big difference in your letter of explanation:

    If you are a US citizen, then it's real easy, you simply say that as a USC, the Phils nursing board doesn't allow a USC to take the NLE, make a copy of your passport, done.

    However, if you're a dual citizen or a PH resident AND you didn't take the exam for whatever reasons, good luck, as it's not a valid reason. If you took the NLE exam AND failed, it's up to you whether or not you wish to not be honest and not say so, but it's not advisable as if ever it was found out later on somehow, you could put your nursing license in jeopardy.

    There are other states needing to see a verifiable local nursing license as part of their requirements. So not having one can lessen your choices of available states to apply into.

    Hello everyone kababayans! I just talked to my friend as she is endorsing her license here in california too, after submitting all the requirements, clinical cases and etc, the board required her to take MS and OB subject to complete his endorsement. Anybody of you guys who knows a school who accepts international students with this case who just needs to take OB and MS? And any information regarding this case? We appreciate for the time and effort to answer some inquiries or say any suggestions. Please feel free. I think id be getting the same verdict too so i would like to have a head start and also look for some possible schools who are open to this case. Thanks and good day! TGIF

    So far there's been none in over a year with the exception of those costing $7,000 minimum to up to $14,000 plus, not including books and supplies. These have been reported as the more expensive private colleges, some have reported a 3-4 year waiting list.

    Compliance in CA: http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...on-718314.html

    There are a few more threads in more details, just search those them here.

    The situation is the CA schools can't afford to operate such a expensive program for just those courses alone, not enough school instructor, not enough preceptors and hospitals staffing to do them, the school's priority are for those already enrolled local students in their nursing programs.

    With the current CA budgetary cuts, it will be another year or two or three before things start to improve.....maybe.

    Remember there's no obligation on the CA schools and colleges and certainly none from the CA BRN and more so, with the very high unemployment rate of CA's own new grads and nurses, to assist those of us who are bringing a degree from outside of the country. Even those that are US citizens since the funds were spent outside of the CA school system.

    However there is light at the end of this tunnel like what this poster did to get her ATT in CA and taking the NCLEX-RN (not LVN) exam recently and able to meet the concurrency problem, I would post your questions on her thread if you want: http://allnurses.com/world-nursing/r...ia-832461.html

    Hi fellow RN's! I just have a question. Do you guys know any case wherein the person who is endorsing her RN license to cali from another state was eligible before to take the board? My friend was eligible to take the board at cali before but wasn't able to pass it so She tried to apply to another state and she was able to pass nclex-rn, now endorsing her license to cali. Do you guys think that her eligibility before will be carried to be granted an RN license here in cali now that shes endorsing it?
    If you guys know any similar case, please feel free to comment or reply. Thank you so much! Have a good day!

    It won't matter if she was once accepted by the CA BON, she will have to apply by endorsement and subjected to the same rules as before. However, she may have a better chance for endorsement if she graduated earlier than 2004.

    That's why I've been telling you guys that if you go to another state, be prepared to work and practice using your new RN license the minute that you get it. Again, we're seeing so many kabayans trying to find the easiest, fastest and cheapest State to get the license, then, try to come back into the real desired state, only to find that it's not the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to go at all.

    Instead of looking for a job at the state of the newly acquired RN license, there's more wasting of time and money trying to endorse back in. With CA being the most popular state, the back door route has been closing very quickly.

    Like I said, be prepared to work and practice and watch your babies grow up as teenagers or adults, to hopefully buy your first condo or house in that state, until (if they ever) change the rulings in CA or the CHED (only for future PH students) finally does a complete change-over to finally meet the CA BRN requirements.

    Honestly, with the over supply of available CA and US educated nurses, the constant stream of new CA grads, I don't see CA changing their rules ever, even if there's a real nursing shortage. CA and many other states have learned their lessons from the years prior.

    But back to your question for your friend, she should certainly try with the full understanding that the chances of approval are not the best and that any and all fees sent to the CA BRN is not going to be returned, if rejected.

    If you read up the last few postings on this side of the forums, you'll see others already recently still being denied into CA of the more current students/nurses.

    If you graduated in 2000 and your theory and clinical was done together then you should be OK however if you are like the many others and clinical and theory wasn't done together then doesn't matter what you do you will still have issues like the many others affected
