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.

    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: http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...on-805813.html
