About a year ago I applied for my public health license in California. I received my BSN out of state and since my Public Health course wasn't sufficient for the required child abuse course credits, I took a self study course which took a few months for me to complete. In the mean time, they held my application, my transcripts, and my check. Once I completed the course, I then proceeded with the application process and never heard back from the Board of Nursing. I figured maybe I took too long with the self study course. Shortly after, I had to move out of state for 10 months so I decided I would look back into applying again once I returned. I recently moved back to California and knew I needed to submit a change of address with the Board of Nursing. As I went through the website and followed the links to do this, I discovered I had been issued a PHN license back in 2014 after I submitted my self study course certificate. But I never received notification of this whatsoever. You can imagine my excitement as I figured I would be going through the application process all over again. But where is my physical license? Do we actually get one?
