California RN License Verification

Posted

I was wondering if anyone has had to get their RN license verification from California? If so, how long did it take? I submitted mine 9/17 and it shows they received it on 9/30. I’m currently getting my Oregon License by endorsement and license verification is the last thing I need. Frustrating! 

Hey there! Currently trying to get my CA license to endorse for a WA license. How long did it end up taking you?

It took me 9 weeks! California took 9 weeks to send it to Oregon ugh. 
I sent my $100 and the letter to them and 9 weeks from that day is around when I got it.

I sent my $100 on Nov 2, but they also don’t mark it as submitted until Nov. 20th. They do say they received it on the 12th, though, and it’s supposed to send today but still hasn’t! So it’s been... 10 weeks and 1 day since I sent it. I’ve been on hold with the board for an hour already today.

I've been waiting 3 1/2 months for CA BON to send verifications to two other states. Talk about frustrating.

OK, so they finally sent verification to my state board, but it still hasn’t arrived. Any ideas how long it takes to arrive in the mail? California says they mailed it on Jan 12th?

OK friends, I need some help. After the California BRN stated they mailed your verification, how long did it take to arrive?

Hey Meg!

Sorry, this process is also very confusing to me. I mailed my certification request form and it was delivered to the BRN in Sacramento on 12/01/2020. I check my breeze account and it says “Submission Date: 01/29/2021” Does this mean it’s finally being looked over & shipped soon? I would hope it wouldn’t take more than a business week to mail the letter from California to another state board... I’m about 2 weeks away from Washington state closing my application due to this one deficiency and it’s super frustrating.

I would call the board ASAP. I mailed mine Nov. 2nd and it was marked as submitted on Nov. 20th. It wasn’t mailed until Jan 12th. It sounds like they’re saying they didn’t receive it until way later for you. 
 

for me, it still hasn’t arrived in the mail even though they say they mailed it more than 2 weeks ago. They say they won’t remail until after 30 days have passed, and if they have to mail it again after that I have to pay $100 fee?

I would also say you should probably contact the Washington board and ask for an extension. Utah let me extend mine another 30 days.

Wowwww this is all honestly a bit ridiculous... I’ll definitely call first thing Monday. That is so frustrating!! Have no clue why they won’t switch to a more efficient system like Nursys...

Hey Meg!

Did you ever get the license? I was able to keep my application open with Washington state after emailing, so thank you for that tip! I finally got through and was told they mailed the letter to Washington’s board around 2/10, or a week or so ago. Now I’m just hoping, after all this, it actually arrives there hahaha
