Sorry for the late reply. I was locked out of my account for a week.
Just a quick update. Looks like Needles, CA, is the closest livescan station from Vegas. Here are my notes;
Colorado River Station
Needles CA 92336
Per telephone conversation, bring $64.00 in cash.
Recommends making appt., even as late as day before.
However, I have decided to fly to Sacramento for 48 hours before attending the conference. Will apply in person. Anyone's experience or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
My husband and I are making this a business/vaca trip. We will be celebrating 30 years together during the trip! (No, we won't be in the air on our anniversary, so no media reports of a travel nurse cited for inappropriate behavior while flying. At 30 years, I'm sure a bystander's view of us on our anniversary would be considered inappropriate or maybe just plain awkard!)
I've also applied with the traveling VA Corp, although I don't expect to travel with them anytime this year. From what I have read, the process can take a long time.
Just deciding now on what other state licenses I should obtain. I understand that CA license verification is a slow process, so I want to get my other licenses in now. I'm thinking about AZ, WA, and MA. I'm licensed in PA and my license in NJ is pending. FYI, spoke to NJ today, endorsement is taking two to three months.
Thank you for the encouragement. See you in Vegas next month! I'm excited to start this new journey!
