I don't know if most of you are aware of the terrible problem we're having as PH grads in trying to get our NCLEX exam or the ATT because there's been no PH college or school that meets the CA BON minimum educational... Read More

    You should have no problems with getting your CA license, once you submit the valid SSN to the CA BON and apply for examination (you will NOT have to retake the NCLEX again) There's a few recent topics already covered in your situation and all have been successful in obtaining their license, refer to those threads that were in the same issue as yours.

    Your situation is much different than californiaboy and Naneg, as they have out of licenses and trying to endorse into CA and this is where the majority of the transfers gets denied (rejected), if they don't meet the CA BON concurrency rules or any other possible deficiencies. Your case was done in CA and you passed the NCLEX prior to the Nov. 2011 submissions.
    Thanks steppybay!

    Hi california boy..I just have some questions for u..if its ok...because i just read your previous posts that it seems endorsement of your license from nevada will come out as a good news as what CABON told u...if thats the case others dont have to enroll for their deficiency,and just take nclex outside California then endorse it back to Cali.right.

    My question is did u apply first in california and encounter concurrency issue so u decided to apply in nevada?the reason I asked this is because I applied to nevada for my nclex too and just waiting for my att,im looking to it as a hope to all of us so we dont have to study again..hope to hear from u.tnx.
    NV has recently started to deny many PH student grads and nurses in the last several months, if not the concurrency issue but for lacking certain courses or lacking enough clinical hours. NV is the last known state besides the other 13 states.

    It seems like it also depends on how your school reports the transcripts and the year of graduation (not sure if like in CA, they are focusing in those who got their BSN's from 2004 to present).

    Here's a link to just one recent PH who was denied... click and read: http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...on-812371.html There are more reports citing they too were denied for various reasons in not able to meet the educational requirements.

    There will always be a few that will get thru the screening process and it might be luck and part it was okay as there are many cases here whereby one batchmate from the same exact class and graduation year gets the ATT and all the others are rejected.

    Very good!! Maybe by chance you graduated more than 5 years ago, as my previous batchmates friend was told they are not as strict as CA for now.

    Make sure that you pass the NCLEX-RN within the 3 attempts to avoid having to enroll in the refresher courses! Good luck!

    "Hello. I am a CA resident but graduated Nursing school in the Phils. I have an RN license in nevada and i am currently processing for the licensure for endorsement to CA BON. I just wanna know what school did you go to. I am a bit worried bec of all the concurrency topics posted. I came from Cebu Doctors' University which is I think 1 of the top 10 med schools in the PH. Are all the PH nurses really gonna be denied? Or is it just depending on the school?"

    Hey! I tried endorsing my new york rn license in california but I got a letter saying I need to send them copies of my clinical rotation records, curriculum outline, ssn, licensed in the philippines, passport, etc. I'm an american citizen graduated in the Philippines 2007. Ive been here in ny since 2010 working as a telemtry nurse. Im trying to gather all the requirments they need. I hope everything will work out! Let me know about yours. Goodluck!
    Did you submit your documents already?
