    Not sure where you heard those false rumors, but there are a few PH grads/nurses who have worked as US RN's in other states for several years but still unable to get their CA license endorsed over and these are post-2006 grads/nurses due to the concurrency enforcement rules or missing certain courses or lacking in proper school documentation (some schools only retain case records for so many years) or insufficient clinical hours (from their schools, despite several years of actual working paid RN experience).

    If anything else, you should always plan to work and practice in that state that you pass the NCLEX-RN and gain the nursing experience there.

    Hi, may I have your email address please? I have some questions on how to endorse to CA.
    Do you still need your OR and DR cases for endorsement, or just the clinical portion of the transcript?

    Endorsement requirements are on the BRN website. However you will still have to meet requirements as if a new applicant and send in your transcripts and case studies. We have seen many denied even if they have a license in another state

    There have been a few here who have stated they did "get their ATT", so it's possible they did in fact, meet the concurrency rules, but there's been more reporting of their "friends or friend of a friend", who actually graduated in the same month/year, said they took the courses together and did cases together, but when it came time to get the ATT in CA, their "friends" got it, but they didn't? What?

    That only raises a very highly suspect of their transcripts in which I believe, they simply "adjusted" their cases or the dates so it would show "concurrent". So while many played by the rules and in being honest and straight-forward, these other "friends" just stabbed them in the back, twisted the knife and poured salt on their "too bad" friend, I'm now a CA RN and you're not, haha".

    However, this "adjustment" is an out right fraudulent application and if caught later on, they will face suspension of their license and possible criminal and civil charges in the future and I don't think there's a statue of limitation for submitting a fraudulent application so they could be called in to the HR office one day or have the police knocking on their doors or show up at their work place (with possible arrest warrant in hand).

    Just for the record, the last report indication I saw of the denied Phils applicants is now over 6,000 in CA alone (mostly being rejected under the concurrency regulation and some also have to add the MS-OB, plus Peds and Psych deficiencies). Personally, I think the 6,000 is being conservative and probably need to add a couple more thousand to the list.

    With no nursing shortage and high unemployment rate for CA and local new grads and more and more CA grads are being produced every year, the CA BRN will not be relaxing the concurrency rules, probably forever, especially with the known fraudulent documentation that can be purchased (Recto) in the Phils.
