Pending license



I check my status today ( I made an endorsement from Hawaii to Washington as a LPN) and it hows that my license is pending. Does it let me start working in Wa state or it has to be an active license only? Why is it? Is this because they are waiting for the State Patrol Results? If someone had a familiar situation please let me know.

Thank you!

If it works the same way as for CNA license it means that your application has been received and DoH is finishing back ground check and uploading documents into their computer system. You'll likely move to "active" status with in a week or two.
