Fingerprint Card (for license endorsement)

  1. hello everyone

    I took my nclex here in illinois and I'm in the process of getting my illinois license,but I also want a california license as soon as possible. my question is, for the fingerprint card... is this the same fingerprint method you used when you apply for the nclex or is this something else? I know there's 2 ways of getting fingerprint by state license endorsement and that is through live scan and fingerprint card (hard copy).

    Can someone please elaborate this more to me? Also, how long does it take for you to get your license?Thank you and I appreciate you guys' feedback!

    In general, same fingerprinting process. Every time you have it done for a different entity, you have to pay all over again and submit new cards. It is a money making deal when done so soon after a previous application.
