    Please take the time to do some reading on this forum, paricularly the stickies at the top of this forum.

    1. You will not be applying for the NCLEX exam, you will be aplying for licensure as an RN to a state BON in the US.

    2. CA will take you four to six months on average before you will even be given permission to sit for the NCLEX, and then another month to get your results by snail mail. You also will not be a licensed US RN until you arrive in the US and get a SSN#, as CA will not issue a license without that.

    before you can sit NCLEX you have to apply to BON, they will not issue you with ATT until you graduate and can provide a full set of transcripts. This process can take anything from 4 months before you will get ATT to sit NCLEX. Check out the sticky Primer to work in the US.
