Hi, i just moved in here in California 4 months ago. I am a Registered Nurse in the Philippines and I am planning to take my NCLEX/Board Exam here in California but i'm still completing my requirements. It takes time before the Board of Nursing will approve my eligibility to take the exam so I am looking for a job right now, Temporary, Part Time or maybe even Regular. My problem is that I don't know exactly when my approval for taking the board exam will arrive. But I really do want to work for now to help my mom with the expenses. What I'm doing now is helping my mom with her job as a housekeeper and babysitter and I really do want her to stop working because she's getting older and has body pains already. I don't have my driver's license yet and I don't have my nursing license here but I want to work in my field so I've been looking for a job related to my educational background, but it's not easy. I still need some certifications so I took the BLS/CPR Training and got my certificate. Anyway, if you have any advice/tips for me, please reply to this topic. Thanks a lot. Godbless

Hi Ms. Apple. I've read your post and I hope this will help. I am working in a University here in PI. I am handling and processing all the papers/documents of all our graduates applying abroad. RN's specifically. Sorry to inform you this but regarding your problem of applying in BON Cali, as per experiences of all the papers I am working to since June 2011, almost 100 applicants who passed by me never had the exam. In fact BON denied their applications. This is due to the economic crisis in Cali.. Yes, they will accept your papers and application fees but no assurance of you taking the exam. Your school may comply to there requirements, submit all the papers they need. But I am sorry to inform you that they are not accepting "foreign"applicants no more.. The best thing you can do if you really want to pursue you being a RN is to move to another state. (Coz it's only Cali who is really too much strict and having a problem) But if you cannot, apply for LVN in Board of Vocational and Psychiatric Nursing. This is not only an issue to PI graduates, but globally. Email me if you have any questions regarding this. Hope it helps.
