I moved to Texas three nearly 3 years ago. Here's a rough timeline regarding the endorsement of my California LVN licensure into Texas.

I was issued my California LVN license number on January 20. On January 27, I mailed the completed endorsement paperwork with notarized signatures to the Texas BNE (Board of Nurse Examiners). The Texas BNE issued my temporary license on February 2. On March 7, I was issued a permanent Texas LVN license.
