    Contact the BON in the state in which you want to apply.Much has been written on here regarding certain states enforcing their requirements for IENs to obtain licensure.Some states also require a SSN# in order to apply.You will also require a Green Card which means you will have to find employer willing to wait the 6 years.

    Hi loriangel14,

    thank you for responding to my post. I am currently living in California and have seen most of the sad news about the concurrency problem going on with foreign BSN graduates like me. I am a legal resident of the US so the next step i have to do is apply for NCLEX exams, wait for my ATT if they would grant it, and if not i need to think of option B. (whatever it is lol) But, i have a question if you have an idea. Is there a way to know if I would be qualified to receive the ATT for CA BRN? I am just having second thoughts if I will still go through with my application or just don't do it anymore, this is stressing me so much :-( I am loosing hope

    There is no telling if you will be approved with CA state BRN however also be aware that there are several other states that are now doing the same in regards concurrency

    Moved to the Nurse Registration forum in World where there are several threads discussing CA and issues
