how to?

i emailed the ca bon... no response... nobody picks up the phone, either. so how do i set myself up for taking the NCLEX? i graduated from an ACEN accredited college in Florida and i just moved to California... any assistance with steps, process, etc... or at least a point of contact... will be appreciated. thanks, in advance.

You can't. You can only get an initial license by examination in a single state. Once licensed you then apply for a license by endorsement to the next state. The NCLEX is a national exam and the results will only be sent to one state.

Go to the CA board of registered nurses website and follow the instructions for licensing by examination as a candidate educated outside CA. All the instructions are there online

sorry for the confusion... i don't not want to test in 2 separate states. i meant separate as in the state i graduated from and the state i want to test in. i want to test in California but i graduated in Florida... that's the link i need to follow, yes?
