Who is to blame for the CA BON mess and a solution? - page 5

Hi, to all my fellow kabayans out there! I have been following these topics for almost a year now and so saddened by the current state of affairs that has been troubling all of us in dealing with the... Read More

    US State government obligations are towards it citizens, not to those living outside the US. CA Nursing Program curriculum requirements were established in 1987. 1426. Required Curriculum

    If I was applying for a Philippine or Canadian license, I would take to time to research online the requirements for licensure before I'd submit an application and hard earned money. . Prior to establishment NCLEX, boards had varying requirements for clinical hours, State Board Test Pool Examination pass rates. etc. so one could be licensed as RN in Iowa but not in PA. In the good old days before the internet, one could obtain BON regs by requesting booklet to see if you qualified

    Lawsuit would be unsuccessful for information is out their for the public to view. It is up to the APPLICANT to ensure they meet qualifications.

    Have anyone tried to go to a university/college to get for an evaluation for the said theory/clinical differences?

    If you look in other threads, the possible school options that some people listed are: National University, Mount St. Mary, and Unitek. Whether or not the schools are still accepting students is another matter.

    My 2 cents, someone should sue CA BON for misleading foreign applicants into thinking they have met the requirements for licensure by submitting what's on the initial application. Only a bunch of crooks take money from foreigners pulling off something like that. Look at other states' requirements, there is no BS, it clearly states what requirements they want like IELTS or TOEFL or Visa screen. Funny how they emphasize concurrency when their graduates never even stepped into the operating room (So no comcurrent rotation into the OR when they're having Perioperative Nursing in class?? or concurrent rotation into the delivery room when they're having Maternal&Child Nursing?) Not true really? here's a post: http://allnurses.com/operating-room-...348-page4.html Even a mom who thought nutella was nutritious and believed she was mislead won the lawsuit.
    No one misled foreign students. If you are applying for something, then take the time to research the requirements. Those requirements have been in the books for a long time. Your comment about US graduates having never stepped into the OR is total ignorance on your part. Before you make baseless insinuations, do yourself a favor and do more research. Nursing students here do OR/ER rotations etc.

    Has anyone tried to appeal their denial due to education? What does that process look like?

    I haven't but one batchmate tried, basically, once CA BON has made their decision, it sticks to the original letter of denial.

    You better have a very good case to win over your argument to the CA BON appeals board.

    In fact, read my first posting on Jan. 4, 2013 from this concurrency thread, click here: concurrency, concurrency, frustration.. please no arguments

    I thought this would be a good time to bring up this subject again since there are many new posters and really nothing has changed with the CA BRN position since 2012!

    With regards to the thousands of the declined and rejected applicants not only from the PH (although mostly) but from other countries as seen by those enrolled in the limited CA schools having to re-take certain deficient courses not meeting the minimum CA BRN requirements.

    Hopefully, since the 2012 posting, many here that did apply with the CA BRN are now facing the 3 year limitation on getting their deficiencies satisfied or the application will be considered abandoned and the loss of their application fees and having to re-apply all over with the same exact requirements as before.

    New transcripts, new sets of required documentations, new non-refundable fees, new set of waiting monthly delays but now is the time to make sure your schools still HAVE your cases in their files or you'll be joining the others who can no longer produce the sets the CA BRN have already and not sure if the CA BRN will honor those previous ones, since the application was abandoned (probably destroyed or shredded since there's no need to store all of the paperwork and probably have very little space to keep them).

    Good luck to all!
