    I would agree with Esme. you should contact the board and inquire if they can require another document to prove your citizenship. Another way the state can find out if you've been attending the program is if you provide a log book but that would be pretty difficult. another option is if the school provides a clinical rotation for all 4 years with a note from the clinical coordinators and dean of nursing stating that you've attended the program with no absences.

    Thank you all.. I think that's the only way.. I really wish they approve the endorsement of my license 🙏

    with concurrent cases California won't give you much of a problem with endorsement. You should continue your application here if you wish to work here. Ca is only giving a hard time with those who have nonconcurrent cases or who lack hours in certain subjects. I say go for it and ask the CA BRN if they accept other documents aside from the passport. Good luck to you and keep us posted! =)

    Yeah i hope they'll approve me though & im also hoping that they wont ask me to get extra subjects coz I also studied LVN here in CA before I studied BSN in the Philippines

    @johnybhoi24 go to Replace a Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Passport or a Passport that Expired over 5 Years Ago | Embassy of the United States Manila, Philippines and file with them that you lost your passport.. that is proof that you did lose it. fill out those required forms and a statement then send it to CaBon. then update us of what CaBon says.. thanks!

    Any update on your application? I am going through the same thing. Philippine nursing gradutate, RN licensed in illinois, now applying to california but they are asking for my old passport but can't find it anymore. they are even asking me for a copy of my school's academic calendar at the time i was studying in the philippines. Any information is much appreciated.

    They also asked for a copy of my passport for 2005-2010. But My first passport was issued on 2010, do you think I am gonna have any problem with this?

    Can someone give me full details about the RLE BOOKLET and CLINICAL ROTATION SCHEDULE(reflecting all cases) ???

    don't tell me they added those too! I've been told the BRN is asking of log book of Clinical rotation and log book of Cases. So maybe it is now. Figured it would be added since some have actually tried to fake their cases just to have concurrent cases. Some actually trade cases with other students too and say it's their case,

    So basically, you need a breakdown of of your clinical rotation such as what hospital you went to what date and what shift. and what ward and clinical instructor. For the book reflecting clinical cases, I'm guessing its the log book where surgeries are logged in, which states what procedure was done, RN on duty, student nurse who completed the case and the clinical instructor who supervised the procedure. I'm betting some have tried to pass cases that weren't really theirs or faked cases and it didn't match with their clinical rotation.
