    Hi when did you submit your initial application for licensure examination? It will take them 12 weeks just to open your application. And also make sure your school sends in your transcripts in a timely manner! The BRN can not start processing your application if they have not received your school credentials. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE INCLUDED YOUR PASS LETTER! If not you can download it on your breeze account!
    Once your cheque has been cashed in, you will receive an email to confirm your email address with Online breeze. You also have to make a breeze account, once you have your breeze account, click on the UPDATE PROFILE( upper right hand corner) add license and follow the prompts( it will ask you to enter your full name and SSN no)
    The reason why it took BRN such a long time to hand me my license no. is because I did not give give them my pass letter and copy of my ssn initially and the processing times have been freaking long BUT now I have my license. So it is true even if your nclex has expired before the results are still VALID and WILL never expire you just have to submit your SSN and application for initial licensure for exam and your pass letter and they will give you your license. The waiting time is hurrendous but worth it.😬😬

    Hi, I suggest atleast wait 2-4wks before calling them for an update and when you do call ask them if they received your transcripts.
    secondly go to www.breeze.ca.gov and make an account, after which you click on update profile, then click "add license" enter your name and SSN number after that you can see updates on your breeze account re: your application.
    That was my mistake before i did not do any of those on my breeze account so i didn't see updates on my application status. If you havent already, you need to give a copy of your SSN, pass letter and copy of your diploma. The best way to submit these documents is to hand deliver them by yourself. You can send it through express mail or even upload them on your breeze account but these mode of submission means you will have to wait additional weeks or months for it to be processed. If you do decide to upload a copy of ssn, pass letter and diploma do it one by one. DO NOT I repeat, DO NOT upload them in one file or else you will be having issues with the BRN not receiving these docs. Upload them one by one. This was also one of the problems I had with the BRN hence the long wait times. If you follow these steps hopefully by end of this year you will get your license too. Goodluck!

    The one thing that caused so much delay on my application is because someone @ the BRN entered my address wrong the first time thats why I never received correpondence from the BRN asking for a copy of my SSN and diploma. That is why it is imperative that you when you make your breeze account, make sure to link your license with your breeze so that you will be able to monitor your application and double check that the address on file with BRN is correct.

    Hi! Thank you so much for your reply! I submitted my pass letter, marriage certificate, birth certificate (although not necessary), copy of diploma, copy of Philippine license, the live scan, check amounting to $750 this June. They cashed out the check Aug. 3rd. I created a breeze account as well. Recently, my pending status became "cancelled". I called them and they couldn't give me an answer so I drove 2hrs to sacramento just to tak to someone. She said it's because when i passed, i applied using my maiden name and now I'm applying for my license using my married name. Until now my status says cancelled. I received a mail asking for a copy of my SSN last aug31st, which I promptly sent. They were also asking for the transcript, breakdown of academic something and the RLE. I'm not sure if the school also sent the RLE. That i have to ask. But the board received the forms sept 5. As of now they said they haven't received anything and for me to wait 12-16wks. It's so frustrating..

    My school submitted the transcript, breakdown of educational program amd program verification from the Dean. However, they did not send the RLE. Now the school wants me to request next week, then wait til it's completed and sent to the board and for the board to process it. I think mine will take so many months. There are so many delays I'm so frustrated now! But so happy for you after a long wait you'r licensed already!

    Hi! I requested the TOR from my school but they dis not send the RLE. What happened to yours? Did you ask the school for the RLE? Did it cause delays?

    I did not have any issues with my school. They sent everything. You shouldn't have to because you already passed the nclex before. But the school has to send in everything that BRN ask. there are 2 forms that the school has to fill up, the transcript form and breakdown form.
    Like I said the thing that caused me so much delay is the wrong address that the BRN entered on their file.
    Be mindful that the BRN will only process your application if your documents are complete and every letter sent in by you or by your school will cause delays because they based the dates in which they received documents from applicants to the processing times on their website. So if the last document received by them is say September 5,2018. you will have to wait until processing times are current. so it usually takes 3months from the time they received the last document before you see any changes. Check the BRN's website every monday for processing times, they udpate their website every monday. on some occassion they do it on wednesdays.
    I advise to check your breeze account 2x a wk. Wait for atleast 4wks before you call them for updates, and when you call ask them what documents are pending. But ususally the also do update it on your breeze account.
    Your status should change into "pending" again once they review your recently sent documents. Processing
    times right now are July 1-15,2018. you're looking at a minimum 2-4months wait time. Lucky you you're close to sacramento, If I were you I would just hand deliver whatever the BRN ask in the future.

    Thank you so much for the very detailed message. My receipt date is Aug. 3rd so I'm probably looking at 2-3mos or longer. But I'm glad all nurses who passed 2006-2010 have been given their licenses. It takes longer for some people like me who's been waiting for a decade now for my license but I'm positive it's worth it. Thank you so much for this thread. It helps me a lot! And thank you for people like you who take time to help someone like me who had no idea what to do. But it's good to know I'm not alone in this career journey and Aerican dream. Congratulations, Nurses! And bring on the Filipino pride!!
