This might sound stupid but I thought for me to di my nclex I have to wait on breeze to approve me
Don't feel stupid. You are correct. You have to apply through both Breeze and Pearson - Breeze to be approved and obtain eligibility to take your NCLEX and Pearson for the actual test. Once you have obtained eligibility by meeting CA guidelines, the state notifies Pearson VUE, and you receive an email with your ATT. The CA processing time frame is 10-12 weeks, which they begin after receiving all of your paperwork (i.e. application, fingerprints, transcripts) - it takes forever.
My recommendation would be to apply within your home state or where you received your degree because the board automatically gets notified that you're qualified (in-state) once you've graduated. Some of us received our ATT within weeks of graduation in May, whereas those who applied through California are still sitting ducks. If you have a job waiting for you in CA, stay and just apply for your license in SC. You can take your test wherever there is a Pearson testing center. So, there's no need to move if you don't have to. Once you've obtained your license you can endorse it in CA, which doesn't take as long, especially if your employer rubs some elbows with the BON and puts a rush on it.
