It's not at all recognized by the CA BON in 99.50% of the cases and without having to re-take near impossible courses in CA, due to the fact that the CHED and PRC have not changed their methods of running their schools at all to meet the CA minimums (the concurrency issues or the lack of certain clinical hours in certain courses).
Getting an out of state RN license once they come back, it cannot be endorsed back into CA. They should just come back and go to the CA schools offering LVN classes and complete it and probably will pass the NCLEX in the first time. As we know that the NCLEX passing rate from PH schools are dismally very low compared to CA's 80% or higher rates.
I hope they get word of these terrible problems facing recent PH grads.

Good questions, unfortunately I don't have your answers.
My Filipina wife is in somewhat of the same situation as you are in, however, she has never been a nurse of any type before.
My wife is also a US citizen and has a BS degree in Computer Science from a school in the Philippines. We both live together here in Florida.
She wants to attend De La Salle university in Bacolod City and try to get her BSN. Then come back to Florida and try passing the NCLEX-RN.
I hope we can both get someone here to help answer the questions we both have.
