    Hi, there! While I have not gone further than you educationally-wise, I am a native Californian who happens to know the answer to your question.

    The RN boards cannot be challenged anywhere in the United States. You must complete the minimal educational requirements for your state. In California, this entails completing a 30 unit terminal program that results in a limited RN license upon passing the NCLEX-RN. The licensure is limited, because it can never be endorsed to any other state.
