I've read them on the forum and called the schools but there are alot of requirements they want you to take the TEAS V and that is just one of the criteria for admission not to mention there is a waiting list.Yes, that's true for the majority of CA schools offering the deficiency courses, it's also for US educated students trying to get licensed in CA who graduated from an out of state US college. The examinations are "pass or fail", so you need to pass the first exam in order to move on to the next testing, if you pass that one, then they will allow your application. BUT in some cases, you may only get put up into another waiting list, depending if there are any open spots after the regular enrolled students are accepted in the same deficient course, but they are not taking the class as a deficiency but rather just a part of their normal curriculum.Which makes meeting the 3 year limitation to satisfy the CA BRN requirements even tougher or else, they will consider the application as "abandoned". You can request for an extension but so far, no one has been given one yet.
