    What do you mean directly to Sacramento?..Are you there in California?..If you are staying in California, the waiting period is about 3-5 months but if you are currently here in the Philippines, it would take 6 months before CA BON can verify your eligibility,and you'll encounter much delays if you have inconsistency with your application data or requirements..There is no other way which can make the application faster, the CA BON has set a standard waiting period for the application processing but they give shorter waiting period for California residents compared to those who reside in the Philippines..

    Sorry, the waiting period does not vary with where you are currently, but where you went to school. They do an evaluation of each and every nurse, they do their own, and do not use the CES, etc.

    The only thing that changes is how long that the mail takes to reach you. Nothing at all to do with verification.

    And deliviering it to Sacramento will not speed things up, remember that the transcripts, etc., need to come from the school, not accepted from you.

    I'm migrating to California before the end of the year so what i did was applied to VT BON and ask my school to send my transcript ahead of time to both Vermont and California BON since i'm planning to endorse to California once i pass NCLEX. I didn't take the NLE in June and i wrote a letter with my application to VT stating that i have no intention to practice nursing in my country of education.

    You mentioned you are immigrating to Ca and that means you have an immigrant visa. With that you don't have to go through the VT but instead go directly to CA. Ca BON doesn't require a license if you want to sit for exam and they do the evaluation of your school transcript themselves. With an immigrant visa, you can apply for SSn which is needed by the Ca BON to issue you a license once you passed the NCLEX.

    Good luck!

    The only reason why i went throught the route of VT is so i can get an ATT and schedule my exam before i migrate to California (around Dec.) I don't want to wait until Feb for my ATT if i go through CA. VT does not require SSN and local license either.

    Was wondering by which visa you are going to the US on seeing as you are planning on moving at the end of the year?

    I took and passed the ( NCLEX) Licensure examination of California and Suzzane is right, it will take 6 months before one would be able to receive his ATT..I think that the Cali BON is requiring license in the Philippines, if you dont have a Philippine license, you must write a letter why you dont have a license yet and that is stated on the procedures..Well, when I submitted my requirements for application, I included the certified true photocopy of my Philippine license...I have a friend who applied on CA BON, and after 3 months, she received a letter from the CA-BON, stating that her requirements were incomplete since she didnt include her Philippine license..Well, immediately she submitted the photocopy of her license, but it created an impact on her application..It took 8 months before she ever received her ATT..so before you submit requirements to the CA BON, make it sure that you didnt miss anything and filled-up the application form correctly..Waiting period for CA BON eligibility for examination is way too long and it gets more delayed if you commit any errors or inconsistencies with your requirements..
    This is true like in my experience:

    i applied to CA BON last December 2005 when i was still in the Philippines..and now that i am here in the USA i still dont have my eligibility letter from them...the reason? my school didnt include or maybe forgot to include the clinical portion of my transcript and this cause of my delay..
    i already ask the school to send a copy...and yet whenever i am trying to follow up my status the operator would tell me i still lack the clinical portion..or may be its under evaluation..wait for another 2 weeks, etc, etc..

    to anyone: how am i going to give to the board my SSN?..when i asked them they would transfer my call to a licensing specialist and a recorder would answer for you to leave a message...i am afraid to just leave my SSN..

    Did you summit a change of address form? You can include your SSN there or just call the CA BON and tell them to update your data. Thats what I did..
