Please read this past thread of mine to kinda provide you all a backbone story to THIS CURRENT thread: https://allnurses.com/nurse-registra...on-775399.html
Anyway, I was really able to renew my CA BRN despite the fact of me being a foreign educated nurse. My situation is clearly stated in the aforementioned thread in paragraph one. Proof is below.
Note that the expiry date they issued was based on last year's renewal cycle when I should've renewed my license (but never opted to).
Thanks to the Lord above AND to the California BRN!
