  1. I would recommend completing fingerprinting first as long as you have an active license as the FAQ says you can complete the fingerprint requirement at any time not just at renewal. However, I did mine in reverse because I was unaware of the requirement. Also you're completely welcome. I was confused that no one else had written anything about it yet. I emailed my completed livescan form to BRNFingerprints@dca.ca.gov & requested confirmation of receipt which they did email me back to confirm receipt but I also uploaded it into my breeze account and would have also faxed it if I hadn't heard back. Uploading into account = sign in, License Activities => Manage your license information => drop down menu under RN license => Submit Additional Documents.
  2. I searched the boards and couldn't find anything related to this. I originally obtained my RN license with California though examination summer of 2010 including sharing my fingerprints through Livescan. When submitted my license renewal online through BreEze in 2020 the portion mentioning fingerprint requirements stated that as long as they were obtained after January 2009 my fingerprinting requirement was met. After renewing and paying my fees, I found the FAQ section that mentioned that the fingerprinting requirement was only met if they were obtained after January 2014. After many phone calls and 1x email to the board over a holiday weekend while recovering from surgery 2 weeks before my license was set to expire I received the answer that the BreEze information is currently incorrect and that I would need to be re-fingerprinted as my fingerprints were obtained before 2014. You also must also contact the board through their website https://www.dca.ca.gov/webapps/rn/requests.php so someone can verify that you have submitted your application already BEFORE uploading your Livescan (as I have learned if the order is reversed your livescan will be rejected and you must resubmit) and they will email the Livescan form to you. However, the form they sent me was identical to this one (just make sure to print 3 copies) but that may change in the future: https://certifixlivescan.com/livescan-forms/california-live-scan-form-registered-nurse-license.pdf The person I was able to speak to on the phone, *****, was very nice and helpful. The phone number I was able to reach her on when I called at 8:10am with no hold time was (916) 515-5278. She also assured me that as long as the Livescan form was received before the day my license was set to expire, even if it took longer for the fingerprints to be processed that my license would still be able to be renewed.

I wish only good things to you in your career and all other areas of your life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

    CHLA March 2010 New RN Residency

    http://www.chla.org/site/c.ipINKTOAJsG/b.4742537/k.9678/How_to_Apply.htm It looks like you have to have a BSN OR an ADN with a bachelors in another field to qualify for the program that starts in November 2010. Also, I didn't realize I had to make 15 posts before I could pm. Could you possibly point me in the direction of the HR there? I can't find anything on the website and salary is part of the online application.

    Congratulations! I graduate in May & am in the process of applying for the November cohort. I was wondering if I might be able to PM you and ask a little about your experience. For example, there's a portion of the application where they ask for your expected salary. What is the starting salary in the versant program? I have other questions as well since I am from the bay area and it would be a while until I could get down there, but the program looks excellent. If you're up for a PM chat, let me know :) Thanks!
