Hi! I recently took my NCLEX-PN and passed. I just received the letter to send my check in for my CA license. But I'm moving to GA next week. So my question is, can I apply for a GA license with my school transcripts and proof that I passed my NCLEX? Or do I have to pay for my license in CA then got through the whole process of transferring my license?

I just got a practice question book and did those. I didn't find it all that hard, just make sure you study. Mine stopped at 85 questions so that freaked me out at first. It takes about a month to get your results in the mail but if you go onto pearson vue after taking the exam and try and register again and it doesn't let you, then you passed.

It is better to go ahead and send in the required fee to your current board of nursing. You would not want your license to expire during the endorsement process because the state of Georgia may require a certain amount of paid hours before they grant you a license. It's better to be safe than sorry. Some people experience a very short or reasonable turn-around time with receiving a license. Then there are some who wait 3 months or more for the process to complete. Once you start the process, you wouldn't want things to be delayed because of having to jump through hoops due to an expired license. At one point, there was a time when a nurse was required to have a year of experience before endorsement. I'm sure if that is the case now or not. But check with the BON here. Whatever you do, do not allow that license to expire before receiving a new one...EVER....endorsement or not. Your license must always remain current and unemcumbered for a long as you wish to practice as a nurse.
