    really? so it means that even if i comply all the requirements, my application will still be concurrent? is that it?

    The concurrency occurs due to cases being done long after the theory was done, CA want clinical and theory done at the same time

    Concurrent is not a bad status for your application. Your education is concurrent if your theory and cases were at the same time. You said they were, so your education is concurrent. It is good that your education was concurrent.

    That's very good so far, you must of the 2012 batch grads and maybe where you only had the 3 cases versus the older 5 cases? Or if you had the 5 cases, your class was still doing it in accordance with the State's requirements?

    There have been a few 2012 grads that got thru, but still many didn't even from the same graduating class, so it really needs to be stressed that your school transcripts and the person doing your paperwork understand with 100% accuracy or it will cause your application to be denied.

    If that happens, you can have your US application re-asssessed but that means going back to square one and re-starting the process with your school all over, wasting more months.

    We haven't seen very many (I think only 2 posters at best here) that were pre-2012 and got their ATT, but all others got denied (concurrency).

    I guess you're applying into WA, so if you do get your ATT for the NCLEX-RN and pass, it might be possible that you can endorse your WA license into CA, with the full understanding, that the CA BON will review your school transcripts once again to see if it meets the CA BON requirements, so still no guarantee but it might work. If it doesn't, then WA will be become your nursing work location till you're ready to move. Good luck!

    I graduated last 2010. I had a five cases: OR and midwifery. my schedule for two years was that 3 days- clinical and 3-days theoretical. I have 2,142 RLE hours. I sure hope that i can be eligible because i have some friends who have the same thing with me and then they passed the NCLEX. I contacted my Dean to help me in my school papers. I hope that they can really help me out.
