I am applying for approval to take the NCLEX-RN exam in California.

I graduated from a university in Japan with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and worked as an RN in Tokyo for 6 years.

This last December of 2015, I graduated with a second BSN in CA .

I submitted a complete application to the Board of Nursing in hopes of receiving approval to take the NCLEX-RN exam, but I have not received a reply in 1 month.

How long have others waited for a reply?

Because I graduated from a California-based BSN program, are my chances high that I will be approved to take the NCLEX-RN exam?

I made sure that my past coursework satisfied their requirement criteria.

Thank you for any suggestions or feedback you may have.

OP, if you graduated from a CA-approved BSN program, you are guaranteed acceptance to take the NCLEX-RN. California tends to be slow when processing applications but you have the option of calling the board and following up.

PP, you don't have to be an RN already to enroll in a BSN program. The traditional BSN is a pre-licensure program which means you enroll, study, graduate, and take the NCLEX-RN afterwards.
