Waiting for CA License Endorsement

  1. Dear Nurse Beth,

    I'm an RN with a license in TX. Applied for RN endorsement in CA in 3 months ago. Still waiting to hear from them. Any way to get it expedited.

    Dear Waiting for CA endorsement,

    The California BRN has a reputation for being slow. Actually what I've found them to be is inconsistent in turn-around times, sometimes fast, sometimes slow.

    So when I called the board last week at (916) 557-1208
    I was surprised to get immediate help on my license renewal by a friendly person. It can't hurt to call.

    They open at 0800 PT, so I called first thing and had to wait < 5minutes.

    Here's a link to a current problem and timeframe on processing: CA BRN Processing Times that addresses your problem.

    Best wishes,

    Nurse Beth
