Finding Schools in CA for the Deficient Courses

  1. 0 Hi Guys. I would just like to ask if you already knew nursing schools here in California that are accepting international nurses like me who is temporarily denied by CA-BORN due to the concurrency issue. This is all about enrolling MS and OB. I prefer schools around NorCal. But if you could give me schools from SoCal area, that's okay as long as I will know these schools are accepting. Thanks guys.

    Vincent, there was a recent posting that someone's friend found a college up north, passed the course and received the ATT in CA, the poster wished she had taken it also, but it hasn't been confirmed as I did ask whereabouts was this at.

    There are a couple of private colleges, be prepared to be wait listed, as you can imagine the strong demand and very limited availability, but also you must have some pretty pennies in your pocket as the tuition cost can run from $7,000 plus (one was reported to cost $14,000 for a few months) and needs to be paid up front.

    There are a few good threads already mentioning the various schools here in the "Nurse Registration" forum tab.

    So, does it mean we can enroll these courses in a community college or private college? I thought we only need to enroll these in a University school since Universities offer BSN which is the program we graduated. Isn't it? Please help me clarify this. I'm eager to know. Thanks much.

    It doesn't matter, if it's a public or private school, the main concern is that they are listed on the CA BRN approved school list, if they didn't tell you, then it's on the CA BRN website. Any other school or college not on that approved list, you can forget looking into it.

    Public school, the local community: cheapest, hardest to get into as you're going up against the local CA residents and students.

    Private: the most expensive, may have more openings, some still have 2-3-4 years on the wait list.

    The common issue is that the public schools all have very limited spaces, it's all on whatever is left over from the already enrolled students, plus you're again going up against international students, not so much the locals.

    Just so that you don't feel alone, there's over 4,000 international students in the same predicament, there's been only a handful of PH students and nurses who have been granted the ATT (let alone even some trying to endorse in) in CA since Nov. 2011, when the strict enforcement of the 25 plus year policy rule started to be implemented.

    @steppybay: I commend you for clarifying. I've read your threads. And you are able to respond as much as you humbly can. Thank you for these clear words.

    When can I find a school that will accept me? Seems like most schools that I inquired are on a waiting list basis and worst is they don't accept cases like me who has a concurrency issue. I am so frustrated. It's been more than a year since I received the BRN letter.
