    You can endorse your CA license to a WA license (check the BRN of WA's website for the paperwork).

    Are you planning to ever work in CA? If so, carry on.

    If not, then why not test for the WA license instead of testing for the CA and then endorsing? That route takes less time and money and paperwork.

    Good luck!

    I changed the title of this discussion for more exposure and moved it over to the Washington State forum with the hope of attracting more responses. Good luck to the original poster!

    Hi,

    I have an active GA license. Since GA and WA take the same NCLEX exam, I did not have to test in order to get a WA RN license. That being said, I applied for a WA license in November 2011 and as of today, am STILL waiting to receive my WA license. Apparently the State of WA and the FBI do not like my fingerprints.. have been fingerprinted 5 times! I spoke with the State of WA Nursing Division and was told that it is difficult to have your fingerprints approved by the state.. not sure why. Other than that, the paperwork was simple.

    That is the packet you'll need (if WA and CA have the same NCLEX exam. Otherwise, you'll have to test for WA). Good luck.. and make sure your fingerprints are CORRECT!
