    Well, first you have to apply at the Board of Registered Nursing California. After the application is reviewed you will get a letter saying which other courses you have to take or if you have been granted to take the NCLEX right away. Good luck!!

    Hi Laita, I am trying to endorse my license to CA. I am in a situation and I think you might be able to help me figure this out. They sent me a letter that has "A copy of your clinical rotation schedule, registration forms and class schedule" listed as requirement. Did you have to send anything like that? did your school send it? what exactly are they? registration forms? Any information is appreciated. Thank you.
