    Hi. was about to process my application by endorsement. They ask for a lot of documents. are all these sent separately or gathered to send at the same time? thanks.
    I sent them all together by certified mail to ensure I reduced the chance that the Cali BON would lose one of my items.

    This is kinda irritating. A week after I got my temp license, BON sent me a letter saying that my transcripts need to show that I took psychology, social science, and oral communication classes. Do I just need to write them a letter of justification? Or do I need to have a faculty member write a justification letter on my behalf? I have several degrees and 1 month away from getting my DNP. It's kinda ridiculous to have to retake those college classes. Your recommendations?

    Were those classes not part of your general education requirement for your first undergraduate degree?!? I took those three course years ago during my first run through university. A Letter from your university from the registrar's office might be helpful to get this resolved. Best of luck

    Hi all,

    I'm in NY with my BSN as a second degree looking to get endorsed in CA. Did anyone request transcripts from their schools before actually submitting the online application for endorsement? I plan to get the LiveScan done in CA and submit the online application while I'm there, I figured maybe I can request my transcripts a few days before so they can be received around the same time. Or should the transcripts come after?

    Also, I understand we need transcripts from ALL schools attended, but does the actual "Request for transcript" form thats supposed to be submitted to the basic school of nursing also need to be submitted to the school where I received my first degree and took prereqs? It looks to me as though the form has instructions just for your nursing school. Thanks for any clarification and feedback based on your own experiences!

    When you apply online they give you the email address to send electronic transcripts to. This is what I did when I applied recently. They did specify not to send transcripts until after you submit your application.

    It doesn't take 10-12 weeks from when your batch starts to get processed based on the now processing timelines. It takes 10-12 weeks overall once you submit all of the required documentation. When your application date is the "now processing date", your license should post within a 2 week period...typically
    I got it today! 9 weeks total from application date. I was actually shocked and was expecting to be waiting another few weeks, but I was in the 'Now Processing Date' timeframe, so I just kept checking.
    Checked 1st thing when I woke up this AM and it was there; my eyes were half closed so I had to log out and log back in several times to make sure it was real. :0) Thanks for the info!!!

    I sent CA's official "Request for Transcript" form to ALL of my schools, as well as that school's specific transcript request form. And I went to a looooooot of schools. Sent it in for all of them, including my original 1st degree years ago in Fine Arts...
