I'm planning a move to Southern California from Virginia in June of this year. I am trying to start the process to obtain licensure by endorsement. My question is, has anyone had to go through this process? If so, how long does it take?
I'm sure it is a long process, but since theres only about 8-9 weeks between now and when I'd like to start work in California, do I need to go the extra step and get a temporary license? That would be way out of my way to drive up to Sacramento from the Ventura area, but I don't know if that would be necessary.
Also, I requested two fingerprint cards on the CA Board of Registered Nursing website, but have yet to receive them. Will my local Police Dept. have the same kind that I need, or do I have to get the ones I requested on the website?
If anyone can give me any information regarding licensure by endorsement to CA, I'd be so appreciative. I know the process should have been started sooner, but its just been in the past couple of weeks that its become a definate that I will be moving out there.
