Can i apply to another state BON if I have an application pending in CA?

Posted

I applied to CA BON the end of April and I still have not received my ATT. The BON website says they are currently processing March applications. I am working as a graduate nurse at a VA hospital in CA. One of the nurses said I should just apply for a license in another state with quicker processing time, since it does not matter where my license is from with the dept. of veteran affairs. Am I allowed to do this if I already applied for a CA license?

If you have paid Pearson Vue then you must wait for your current registration to expire.
