So I'm in the process of endorsing my FL RN license to California and I'm kinda stress right now because I don't know how to tell them why I'm not license in Philippines.

What I mean is should I send an email to my analyst or send a letter? Before it was ******** ******** But now I'm currently with ********* ******* I don't understand too why they asking my Phils. RN license for endorsement? I sent my FL RN license copy already but they want that too? But why?

Any same situation like this too? Please share. I need some advices. Thank you.

BRN can ask for anything they want. Most just send a letter stating they do not have a license in the Philippines

Endorsing any out of state license is not an automatic guarantee or pass coming into CA, one must still pass all the CA BRN requirements as if applying for the first-time.

The other question is why don't you have a PH local license?

Why? Because I failed it? And did not get a chance to retake coz I moved here to US already. That's why.

Well, then as it was suggested to you earlier, write a short letter of explanation to the CA BRN as to why you don't possess the PH license and see if they will accept that.

If they do, great. If they don't then you'll have to find a way to pass the PH license (it is a CA BRN requirement to show proof) and submit the copy so they can check it off their list.

Others in your same situation had to re-take the PH licensure exam in order for their application to proceed, if not, after the 3rd year of the application date, the application is considered abandoned (they will close it out and once that happens, you'll need to re-start the entire application process with a new non-refundable fee).

Since the CA BRN will see no movement or interest in going forward, as they are overloaded with applications and the faster, the evaluator can clear all the pending ones, the better he/she can work on other cases.
