I found a similar discussion topic but it was posted awhile back so I'm not sure how current that information is. So my question....
Is it possible to submit the Licensure by Examination Application to the California Board of Nursing prior to graduation?
I was just reading through the application process and it seems it could take a lot longer than expected. Currently I'm attending an accelerated BSN program out on the east coast (graduate in august) and plan to move back to CA shortly afterwards. I was planning to take my exam out here but I don't want to extend my stay here longer than I need to. I read that I need my finger print to be part of the application and since I don't live in CA to use the live scan, I need to submit it manually which could take a long time to process (1-2 months). I'd rather take my exam shortly after I graduate and don't want to spend all this extra time waiting for everything to get processed while I wait out on the east coast (in which I may move back to CA earlier and take the exam there).
So with that information, is it possible to just submit my application with everything they need besides the graduation verification? My hope is that they can just keep everything on file and update it as my school sends in my final transcript so I can get my ATT quicker. Does anyone have any experience with this? I would appreciate any personal experiences and advice!
