I'm a foreign educated nurse from the Philippines and I'm just wondering which state is easiest/ fastest in terms of RN application for IEN's. 

I live in CA and working as an LVN now. I tried applying for CA-BON and they requested copies of my clinical cases and I can't provide them so I'm kind of stuck with the application.

So I am looking for other options to get my RN license, either by moving to other state or taking an LVN-RN bridge program.

Any advice???

Have you tried calling your school to help you?

CGFNS takes forever.

I did and they don’t have copies of my cases so I’m thinking of other ways to get my RN license. I’m thinking of doing the LVN 30 unit option.  I am really desperate right now. 😢

I understand the feeling.. Do you consider other State/Territory? Some tried Saipan others applied in Vermont or NM.

Hi osis,

Honestly, I don't think it's a case of which is the easiest state to apply. If you don't have the evidence that a BON requires then most likely all BON's will assess you the same.

I'm a UK registered nurse that has not been able to get licensure as our training is not comparable. From doing a bit of research, I think California is probably the best state to apply to because at least they offer make up courses there. I applied to North Carolina BON and I already knew that I would need to make up clinical and academic however NCBON could not/would not then help me to find somewhere to make up those hours in the state.

I am thinking of applying to other state but from what I read when you endorsed the license to CA they will again ask you for the clinical cases .☹️

What steps are you taking for now? Have you taken the RN-NCLEX? Try Vegas or AZ since it is a closeby state.I will update you if there is progress on my endorsement to Cali.Help me pray please...
