    California license by endorsement

    The one I received from Cali was the same that I had to use for GA, which I picked up at a police station in FL. So those three states use the same one....

    I also got mine right away, no problems. Check with your police department or fingerprint agency. The ones around me all have the blank cards.

    Insurance and multiple agencies

    Purchase an individual policy and have agency pay you tax free stipend for not taking insurance. Most seem to pay between 250.00-350.00 a month if you have your own policy.

    new to L&D & feeling a little discouraged...

    L&D is a beast of its own! It is more like working in an ER environment, Not everything (actually very little) is set in stone. You need to watch (assess) your patient (s) constantly and care changes minute to minute, no two Labors are alike....
