ABOut my New mExico Application

  1. Hi!

    Im a newly RN here in the Philippines and i want to apply for NCLEX..

    My original Plan was to apply for california state..

    but i heard that New Mexico State can Process my Documents alot faster than California... Is It TRUE???

    and If I become eligable.. and take the exam..and hopefully passed will I be able to endorse to California? which is my first choice...

    will that be much faster than applying directly for licensure by exam in California??

    help please ^^

    Moving this thread to the Int'l forum where it is more appropriate.

    Yes processing is faster in NM and also you can have it endorsed in CA once you have your licencse. All you have to do is satisfy the requirements of CA for licensing by endorsement.

    Don't think you can endorse to CA without a SSN and you can't get that until legally present in the US and prove it

    Maybe you can have it endorsed but could not get your actual license unless you provide the SSN.

    You can actually endorse it and get a temporary license that is good for just six months..............you will need to provide them with a SSN# to get the permanent license.

    i actually did the same... endorsing my lcense from vermont to california.. at first i got a temporary license valid for six months, like what suzanne said... and then i am waiting for my permanent license already since i just submitted my ss number 2 weeks ago
