Question on Endorsement

Hi, all. Hoping for some help answering an endorsement question.

 

In March I moved to TX from CA, and completed my endorsement application. (Most of it.) The only two items I had to complete were my verification of my CT license I held, and my CA license I held. I passed my jurisprudence test and my fingerprints were received.

 

Here's where it gets panic inducing... I wasn't working and had my temp license, and then I started working, and forgot about filling out the requests. I did the CT one today- super easy through NURSYS. I panicked when I realized CA doesn't participate in NURSYS, and I only have until the end of the month to get the CA license verification sent in to TX! 

 

My question is- does anyone know how I can get this done?

What happens if California doesn't communicate with TX by 7/31/19 when my tmep license expires? I am in an absolute panic and about to cry!

You need to let your employer know as soon as possible and you will be put on leave from the time it expires until it comes through. Any time you are dealing with a government bureaucracy you can assume it will take a good while longer than you think. It is possible this will happen in time, but its unlikely. There isn't really anything you can do to speed it up, though you certainly should at least attempt to call the CA BON. Your employer won't be happy with this information, but under NO circumstances should you work as a nurse once your permit has expired. Letting them know well ahead of time at least gives them a chance to figure out how to cover your absence.

Thank you! I actually figured out what form to fill out, and where to send it. I overnighted it and I will call CA BON mid week. I spoke to TX BON too.

If I let them know early, they may be able to work out something for me to do in the interim. I work in a non-patient care setting in a corporate home health office. I am hoping the verification can be completed, but in no way expect them to do it timely- BON and all that. I also called Texas BON (had a question about what form to use) and they seem to think it can be done by CA in that timeline, but, we'll see. Thanks again for your response.
