    In 2011 some of my batchmates from the Philippines who applied were granted an ATT as they don't have any cases after graduation. Some were denied and they showed me their letter that they were denied as they have cases after graduation. A bunch of us applied in 2012 and we were all denied even though we don't have any cases after graduation but because our cases were not 'concurrent' with the semester we took the subjects. There is a big inconsistency on the part of the CA BON. I got licensed and started working as a nurse here in Las Vegas, NV and when I called about reciprocity to CA BON I was told the same requirements of me having to take up classes before I get my license endorsed to California is still in place.

    Oh well goodbye California maybe I'll be back when I finish my FNP.

    Double check that, as the basis of the BSN (from the PH) is flawed, CA BRN goes by the BSN degree as the foundation. There's been a couple of posters who tried but will be required to still re-take the deficiencies. You would have to still submit the same transcripts from the PH for the CA BRN evaluators to determine whether it's just the two courses in question or it can be up to 4 of them.

    Yeah I am not making stuff up. They told me that if I want to endorse my license I would still need to take MS and OB at a certified school. I already got evaluated by the BON of CA and they denied me when I applied in 2012.
