I'm a Citizen of CA, who had to study outside the USA (in the PHILIPPINES) whose trying to apply for the NCLEX RN. The BRN of CA cashed my $200 check way back in Oct. 24,2013. i received a letter around Nov. 5 2013 saying that i must send additional documents. Due to the processing of my school, it took a while before i could send them to the BRN. I got all my documents prepared, sent them around Jan 24, so i checked all of the updates that the website for CA has, i also noticed that your not supposed to call the BRN if your checked has been cashed under 90 days. Because of my curiosity, i called them and they freakin said i gotta wait within 3 mos again??? My study plan is jacked up already..
is ANYONE experiencing something so complicated like this??? i even doubt sometimes if il be eligible or not O.o

If you are recent grad, your chances of being eligible are slim to none based on the concurrency issues. If you are lucky in 3 months you will get permission to take the NCLEX. I suggest you read what others are experiencing.

Kabayan, don't hold your breath too long, since Nov. 2011, CA BRN has only approved a handful of PH applicants, even those trying to endorse into CA.
Here's partially one of the reasons why: Position Statement: Concurrency of Clinical Experience of Philippine Nursing Schools
The above applies to those with graduating BSN degrees from 2005 to 2013.
P.S.- just so you know the application fees are not refundable, as I'm sure you read the BIG BOLD statement made on your application you sign on.
