It seems like there is no one out there that had definite knowlege to my original post. Thanks anyway for the advice and for the views. Take care.
The advices provided by Silverdragon pretty much says it all, kabayan. Since you have ruled out trying to get a license in CA and other States enforcing the concurrency rules, should at least narrow down your possible States that you want to work and play in for several years as you take care of your ailing parents.
A neighboring State particular requirements will be different from one another, from west to east coast or the reverse, every State has its own standards and measures. Once you pin-pointed whatever that state is, is where you can make the specific questions you're asking about by contacting that State's BON.
Being of dual-C, you might also want to obtain the local PH license as many States are making it a part of their minimum documentation request. Being a dual-C or even a USC does not automatically pre-clude you from NOT trying to apply to take the local PH exam. I know of several batchmates who simply didn't check off the citizenship box and still got to take the exam and passed.
It's just one less (but could be a large stumbling block) to a PH applicant by not able to provide a State with the local license.
I think also having a local PH license is one item that can be verified by any State's BON by contacting the actual PH board to verify the license numbers and to ensure against possible fradulent paperwork.
