Thank you for the "welcome" and the helpful tips. I have tried to email the CA BRN several times with out luck. Sacramento is only an hour 30 minutes drive, so I think it'll be worth it to personally visit their office.
If there are any other tips, advice or feedback from you or any other forum member, please don't be shy
I forgot the information I meant to post! Our nurse recruiter and my fellow nurses have found it almost impossible to get anything accomplished by phone. E-mail is slow. Perhaps they only look at it once a week and forward it to someone else. Snailmail or a personal visit work best. recently renewed my license on line and it was quick and easy.
