California rn license endorsement

  1. Hi everyone!!! I am just wondering if someone can help me out here.

    I am from california and i applied for rn license and was told to still take MS & OB classes.( i had the letter with me valid for 3 years ) So i decided to take NCLEX RN in the state of hawaii by God's grace I passed. Still I am pursuing my california RN license. Should I just send them a form of endorsement? or should i take the classes first and send them application for endorsement once I'm done?

    If anyone knows with the same situation as I am any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

    The reason I asked is some Other state license nurses were not required by CALI BON to take MS & OB so i am just trying my luck, if I send an application by endorsement now, there would be a chance that they will not require me anymore and convert my license right away, on the other hand I am thinking they already have my info in their system showing that they issued me a letter already for the MS & OB classes.

    Thank You, I will be waiting for your responses.

    Doesn't matter. CA do their own assessment so whether new or endorse license you will need to meet the state requirements so deficiencies remain the same.

    As the previous poster stated, endorsement will not help you. I endorsed from another state and still had to send in all of my transcripts to the California BON to be considered. They didn't care that I was licensed in another state.
