Good morning amazing nurses of allnurses.com!
My question deals with the length of time it takes for an endorsement to be finalized in OKLAHOMA. I graduated from college in California took my boards in SAN DIEGO and moved to OKLAHOMA to be with my husband. I submitted my endorsement application probably 10 days ago and I'm not really sure what to believe in terms of endorsement.
They said I could call in 2 weeks to check the status of my application. However, from previous threads (here on allnurses.com) people have stated it may take up to 7 months (the thread was from 2010 I believe).
In short here are my questions.
1. How long it takes to get endorsement in OK
2. Should I apply for jobs even though my endorsement application has not been completed
3. How can I brush up on my nursing skills even though it's been 6 months since I've been outside of school. (it makes me nervous doing job applications knowing it's been 6 months since my preceptorship.
Thank you so much for reading!
