Hi everyone,

My friend is an international student from the Philippines. She took the Nclex and has an active license in Illinois. She is currently in California and tried to do license by endorsement but was not accepted. Told her that she would have to retake Medsurg and OB. Are there any options for her without having to retake classes? Thank you in advance!

Sounds like her only option is not to work in California.

Wish it was that easy, but all her family is in California

Then it's really unfortunate that the CA BON (which is known for being the most difficult nursing board in the US) is not accepting her license. I don't know that there is anything she can do about it.

Then sounds like she'll have to take that coursework. Is working in a neighboring state an option?

Moved to the Nurse Registration forum 

This is something that has been happening for several years and unless she registered as LPN there is nothing to do except the courses if wanting to work as a RN

Then your friend needs to fulfill those required courses. I didn't get an active license outside of California. But when I took the 2 required courses, I had classmates who have active licenses outside Cali and they endorsed it here. They were required to take Med-Surg and OB and that's why they were in my class. Now we're RNs because we fulfilled those courses even though it was tough to get into. If she's interested to go to that school, e-mail ien@dominican.edu. That's their contact e-mail for anything about IENs. School's name is Dominican University of California. Great school, great instructors and awesome neighborhood for a bay area university. Good luck!
