Filipino RN, No RN/DR cases

Hi I am a 2008 graduate from the Philippines and just recently migrated here in California. I am currently in the process of my application for NCLEX. Problem is I cannot provide the OR/DR clinical cases because my school and PRC already discarded my files. This is not surprising to me since I graduated almost 10 years ago. I don't have a copy of my cases as well. My school sent the BRN a letter stating that I finished all the clinical cases but as expected the Board did not accept it. I sent an inquiry to the BRN regarding my case, as to what steps I should take now that it is impossible for me to provide the cases. As of now, I'm still waiting for their reply.

Just want to ask if anyone was/is in this same situation? Hoping someone can share their experience.

Thanks in advance!

wow that sucks! I graduated 2010 and my school even closed ( I don't know exactly the reason why) but I was able to contact the registrar and luckily they still have all my files. :) I'm still waiting for the board of Sacramento to process it though.

This is a very common question that's been asking many times with others in the exact same situation in this forum.

Many have tried to file via the appeals process with a letter or documentation from their college, some with the Dean's endorsement stamped or simply stated what your situation on why you're unable to provide the needed paperwork. So far, of those tried either reported that the CA BRN didn't accept those documents or never replied back with their results (assumes they were not given the ATT or the endorsement was not granted).

Whatever methods you guys try, can you guys report back here whether you were able to go forward with your application or not, please kindly re-post back here so that others can find their answers. Good luck.

Don't forget that you have a 3 year limitation (from initial letter of notice) to provide the CA BRN with the document(s) before your application is considered abandoned and will have to re-start the whole process again with another non-refundable application fee.

The proof of the burden falls primarily on the applicant not the CA BRN, given the known cases of others presenting fraudulent paperwork,

Here's an update. Just received an email from the Board informing me that they cannot proceed with my application until they receive my record of cases. Since it is now impossible for me to provide the said requirement, I asked if I can just take additional coursework here in CA to make up for the lost cases. They said they won't recommend it until the Board formally advises me of a deficiency. But since my application cannot proceed, they will not be able to determine the deficiencies and my eligibility to take the exam. So in other words, I just hit the dead end for my application.

Try to apply license in a nearby state and work there. Life does not end in California. there is still many states in US to explore. Dont give up.

Hang in there! Ka3z is right. Life doesn't end in California. I've known classmates who moved to Arizona. If I may ask, what's your school?

Go and check with other BON. They are not as strict as CA.
