Hi all,

Recently I got my denial letter from BRN asking me to repeat the whole nursing program. I have my BSN in the Philippines but according to CA-BRN I'm still required to repeat my nursing education. Anyone here who has the same experience? or any advise on what to do ? thank you so much!

Hi,

I'm from the Philippines also, BSN RN (batch 2010) I came here 2016 to marry a US citizen, I went to BON PA in 2016 to enquire about the requirements for me to take my NCLEX exam, they were really nice to me ( I guess because my husband was with me) she gave me a blank form for application and asked me to get CES certification evaluation services from CGFNS (they're the one who send the letter to my school where I took my nursing degree in the Phils. they also verified my RN license from the PRC it was a long wait (and expensive) but thank God I was able to get all the paperwork done, the CGFNS compared my units and number of hours of training to what their nursing schools required here and it was the same as BSN here, they did not required me to take IELTS or CGFNS qualifying exam because I told them that all our textbooks are written in English. anyway, I did CNA class to begin with while waiting for my documents passed the CNA test and take part-time job while reviewing for my enclex exam, thankful that I was able to pass my NCLEX exam and now I'm a US BSN RN. Btw, I used to work in Saudi Arabia Jeddah before I came here, I took my prometric exam also and was able to work in KSA for 2 yrs. 

I suggest you should try applying in other states where there will be less requirements, most of the nurses here in the US doesn't have 4yrs Bachelors degree like we do in the Phils.

@gemivrn the issue remains the same with California even when endorsing as they do their own assessment. So unless you plan on moving there isn’t much to be done if California decides you have to either repeat nursing or do makeup courses

I would suggest you approach a nursing agency who specializes in recruiting international nurses for RN jobs in the USA. They will know which states are "easier" for nurses from the Philippines, California is known to be very "difficult".

When I approached my school for records to send to my agency the lady assisting me said "which state are you applying to, please don't say California". For what it's worth I used Vermont, but that is years ago so may not be "easy" these days. 

Best of luck.

I'm working as an LVN right now in CA, while waiting for the result of my application to NY-BON. Then once I secured an RN License. Will try to apply for federal jobs. You guys have any idea how it is to get in to VA system or BOP? 😬
