RN Endorsement CT to CA

So I am currently licensed as an RN in the state of CT and I'm trying to get my RN endorsement for the state of CA. I have my temporary CA license. The nursing pre-requisites are what's preventing me from getting my license.

I am missing an oral communication course. I have sent in a letter from the university dean of the department attesting that one of the courses on my transcript is an oral communication course. As of right now, I haven't heard anything on whether this letter was accepted or denied.

has anyone else had experience having to do this?

also, in the case that they don't accept that letter, I found an online course for oral communication. I just want to make sure that if I do this course, it would be accepted by the board. I have already graduated with my bachelor's in nursing so I wouldn't need to transfer the credits anywhere, I just don't want to complete the online course, receive the 3 credits then have California brn deny it.

Hi. I am trying to get my CA endorsement for my FL license. I was told that I could not get a temporary license since I was not educated in CA. Can you tell me what you did to get your temporary CA license?

I actually just applied for my temporary online on my breeze account and I got it a few days after.

Thx so much

Did you get yours?

Yes. It took about 5 weeks to get my CA license. I hope this helps

Did you end up needing to take a communication course? If so what did you take?

speech 101 at any one of our local california community colleges should do the trick... Many are online at this point.
