Thanks for your message. Would you kind enough to provide us with the link from BRN or CA BON regarding their official guideline on your statement below?
You do have incorrect information. The NCLEX-RN exam does not need to be rewritten, the results do not expire. The retrogression has never lasted more than three years. Those that have been waiting that long now is because of problems with their agency or attorney, not the US government
In the worst case scenerio, you just need to send another application to CA BRN. Nothing more.
Boards of Nursing do not make exceptions for the SSN# because you are not in the US. They only keep paperwork and files open for so long.[/quote]
I went to their website and I could not find it. Thanks again.[/quote]
There is no link on their website, it is just based on common sense. The NCLEX exam is not even administered by the BRN, or any BON. It is done by a completely separate company, the state is not involved in the scoring of the exam either. They get the results sent to them by Pearson-Vue the same way that you do.
If and when the nurse passes the NCLEX exam for CA they receive a letter stating that they have three years to submit the SSN# to the BRN, and if they do not do it in that time, then their application is no longer valid. No place does it mention about retaking the NCLEX exam, only that the application needs to be refiled.
This is what happens in CA. Simple as that.
