  1. 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?
  2. 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!

    LVN 30 unit option/ Concurrency issue

    Are you from LA? LA County allied school of health told me I can enroll to the 30 unit option with no pre-reqs needed.

    Lvn-rn 30 unit option CA

    any update on this?
  8. I'm a foreign educated nurse from the Philippines and I'm just wondering which state is easiest/ fastest in terms of RN application for IEN's. I live in CA and working as an LVN now. I tried applying for CA-BON and they requested copies of my clinical cases and I can't provide them so I'm kind of stuck with the application. So I am looking for other options to get my RN license, either by moving to other state or taking an LVN-RN bridge program. Any advice???

    Easiest state to apply for IEN's

    I am thinking of applying to other state but from what I read when you endorsed the license to CA they will again ask you for the clinical cases .

    How often do you have to be at school and how long is the program?
  15. hey guys, I'm on the same boat. Recently applied to CA-BRN but I can provide copies of my cases so I'm stuck with the application. Im on the point of considering applying to other states or just taking an LVN-RN bridge program. Any update on your status??
  16. I would only assume that this is not in CA, cause CGFNS is not a requirement for CA BRN.
  17. I’m an IEN with BSN degree from PH, for some reason I am unable to provide all documents required by CA-BRN for RN licensure so I’m looking for other ways to get my RN license. I am interested with the LVN 30 units option, so I am wondering if I do that program , will my BSN degree from PH be transferred here in CA?? Is this LVN 30 units option advisable?? Pls advice! Thanks
  18. Hi, I'm an LVN and just got two employment offers and I can't decide which one to take. One is to work at an Eye Clinic for a LA County Hospital and the other one is to work as an LVN for LA County Department of Corrections. Can someone help me decide?? BTW, I have a 1 y/o daughter and my wife also works fulltime. So not sure which job will fit our family schedule. thanks
  19. I worked NOC shift from 11p -7a and yes its my responsibility to find cover if anyone calls off. And NO, its doesn't bother me to wake people up just to ask if they can come in. Usually they won't answer the phone anyway so I just leave a voice mail. But if they call during my med pass , I just tell the AM nurses that I was busy and wasn't able to call anyone í ½í¸ Even if Im not that busy lol

    LvN requiring Cgfns

    Actually when I applied to the BVNPT I didn't know about the CGFNS-CES evaluation í ½í¸œ I received a letter form the boards that I needed one so I was able to do it after initial submission to BVNPT. If you are doing method 3 you don't need to submit an employment history, just your school documents both to the boards and CGFNS. No need for license submission to the boards just the CGFNS. Goodluck!

    Nclex pn stopped at 85 with good pop up

    Log in to your account at pearson and try to re-register for the exam your are taking/taken then go all the way with the registration. Fill-up the credit card page form then press submit payment twice. If it allows you to pay, most likely you failed and if won't then you'll get the famous good pop up. " Our records indicate ..... blah blah...".Goodluck! í ½í¸„
