I wish to be licensed in the State of Florida but I'm having second thoughts because of certain factors. One of the requirement for foreign educated nurses is to go through the CES to completely analyze and evaluate their credentials. It generally takes 6-8 weeks to prepare and furnish a completed report and the processing fee is $278 apart from the Florida BON application itself($190).
California BON on the other hand requires no CES and the processing fee is only $107. I thought of pursuing my license in California and eventually transfer to Florida through endorsement. Would that be possible?
Please share your thoughts. Need to know if that would be a better decision. Thanks and more power.

Thanks for that information. If I may ask, did you somehow worked in California before being endorsed to Florida? If yes, how long?
No haven't been to the states. I just have an active California license and a valid SSN.:angel2:
