Hello

I already applied fo brn.My concern is getting transcript from Sri Lanka.If you more about that part please reply me.

Thank you

Your first step is to apply to the California Board of Registered Nursing, follow the instructions for applicants educated outside of the United States.

There are a small number of Sri Lankin educated nurses who have written the NCLEX, to find this information look on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN org) website, look at the nurse licensee volumes and NCLEX examination statistics, see the tables for first time, internationally educated candidates taking the NCLEX-RN examination by country of education.

Have you tried sending the request for transcripts to your school?

Hello ,

Thanks for repying me.I will check those.Are you from Sri Lanka?I couldnt find any Sri Lankan nurse working here so far.I found lot of difficulties to get my things done.BRN asked me further documents and i couldnt submit them on time.So it's abandon now.I'm going to start my application again.Do you think i should take TOEFL ?

Thank you

I am Canadian and have worked with nurses from many different countries, I understand from speaking to IEN colleagues and from reading the many posts here on AN, that licensure for IENs can be a lengthy and complicated process. Keep persevering with the CBRN application requirements, it's worth the time and effort to do whatever it takes to re-enter the nursing profession.

I do my best to get in.yes,it's time consuming and complicated .

Thank you very much.
