I live in California and I recently completed my CNA course and took my boards on 10/31. I just recently have started looking for work and I've found two hospitals that just recently started hiring CNA's and I'm very interested in working for them. There's a problem though. When applying they want you to give them your license number, only problem is, I don't have mine yet.
My certificate of completion says it should arrive in 16 weeks, which everyone has told me is a lie, and it normally takes much longer to finally show up in the mail. But no matter how long it takes, I dont have time to sit around and twiddle my thumbs until I find it in my mailbox one day.
So does anyone know where I can go to lookup my license number? So far, the California Department of Public Health websight has been zero help at all and has been pretty much beyond worthless. So at this point Im stuck and have no idea who to turn to/where to go.
And help at all would be appreciated
