I applied from Georgia but had already done Speech and Communication at a Community College. I needed license by endorsement for RN. Went to Sacramento specifically to hand deliver my application on May 25. I was curious to see if that would speed the process.
Went from the airport to Livescan, printed application form and next day went to the Board. Had my transcript, receipt from Livescan and Nursys and a check along with ID and application. I did not pay the $50 for temporary license, seems like a waste.
Two weeks later I logged on to CA Breeze to track and see if I needed any further documentation and I checked every week until I saw the license posted today, exactly one day before the 3 months waiting period. Going directly was not advantageous for me but I was also curious. Hope this tidbit helps someone in obtaining their license.
