I'm a little late, but I got my CA license (originally from TX) and I am assuming the process is the same from CA to TX as it is from TX to CA. Go through all the steps ... background check, fingerprints, nursys license verification, fee, application and if necessary proof of your CE's. Hopefully you got you license by now!
berna1126: ahhh ... I haven't logged in for quite a while ... so, maybe you already found your answer, but in case you didn't ... It just depends on what state. For CA it's about 5 weeks, for Hawaii it's about 1 week, for WA it's about 3 weeks. Usually the state board site will give you an estimate and they are usually pretty accurate. Good luck.
