hello,

regarding with asking for an extension period from CA BON,

Is it alright to mention about planning to endorse your results to another state

to prevent it from being destroyed after the 3 year period while the retrogression is still going on?

thank you~

ma'am suzanne, when your file with the CA BON has been destroyed and you've reapplied again for your NCLEX (which you have passed before) with them... what will you do? should you call pearsonvue and tell them to forward your result to CA BON?

thanks! :specs:

I am not Suzanne :)

As far as I am aware once you have had your results forwarded to the state board of nursing pearsonvue don't keep any copies. If your file was destroyed by the BRN and you haven't applied to another BON (before file expired) then you may have to sit NCLEX again, You really need to check with the BRN on procedure if this is the case. If you had gone to another BON then all you need to do is arrange with the BON to verify your license or NCLEX results to the BRN

Hi! When I received my nclex pass letter from CALI BON, I became worried about the fact that they will destroy my files and that's where I repent a lot for not applying to other states..I believed it is totally unfair on the part of those who'd suffered so much just to hurdle this exam. I've tried to inquire from the BON and the reply was they will really destroy the file after 3 years unless you will plead for an extension and that you have to do it yearly thereafter...'am not sure but that's what the man told me in his e-mail.

For my case...I just find an agency to help me with all matters concerning my application and that includes transferring to other state. My agency claimed that they have already gone through with this dilemna many times and they say that we will work on the transfer to other state once the expiration is near, maybe a year before my actual expiration date.

Hope this sounds good to you. I suggest you also write to the board and inquire on this. Otherwise, look for a reputable agency to help you on this.

You do not need to go to an agency to assist you with this. It is something that you can do yourself but be aware if going to another state you have no license to Endorse and will in most cases have to meet their requirements for foreign trained nurse which will mean a transcript evaluation done by either CGFNS or other state acceptable agency.

This is why we currently do not recommend CA for initial licensure

Yah...you're right Silverdragon! I really dont recommend Cali for initial licensure. If only I knew that before I applied for this Nclex...I will never opt for Cali.

Well, regarding the transfer to another state...I have written to Vermont and they said I can download the NCLEX Pass endorsement application form (International Nurse)from their website. And it requires Credential Evaluation (CES report) from CGFNS that cost around 300 US dollars. That's the reason why the agency adviced me to do it at later time. They adviced me to prioritize the Visa Screen so that once I will be transferring to another state all I have to do is supply to the state a copy or reference number of my visa screen certificate and that means I dont have to incur another expenses.

Hello! Hope all is well. Can someone kindly assist me in what I need to do with regards to this dilemma. I'm trying my all to help my gf come here to the US. She is currently an RN in the Philippines,has 2 years med-surg experience, has passed the NCLEX (expires 10, 2011), has her visa screen certificate and has a tourist visa and planning to come here in September. She has taking her NCLEX for California almost 3 yrs. ago and will soon expire. We are currently processing her licensure endorsement to New York. Accdg. to the agency we associate with it is either NY or Oregon open for endorsement. But they say it will take up to 8mos for the CES report to be processed. Will this process be affected if her Licensure Exam in california expires in October 2011? If there's any information you can provide us, we will greatfully appreciate it.

Without a social security number there will be no license. What is her petition date ? Also what state is her sponsor, that is where she should get her license. I don't know what agency you are using ( is this the agency her sponsor is using?) but the wait can be months. Her exam will not expire.

Thank you for the prompt reply! was'nt expecting anyone to be reading this thread, its been awhile since the last discussion. but very informative in some ways. But cutting o the chase, the agency is in manila, philippines who is helping us process her california nclex exam to new york. Im still weary in this process on how they will be able to get her a new york license. And hve been very busy with work and its difficult to contact the new york office late in the day. been stressful the past 3 mos trying my best to think a wah through this. Are there any sponsors out here in the US that can help us?
