According to the website for both the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) and the California Board of Registered Nursing (CABRN), this is a three-step process:
- Apply to the OSBN for licensure by endorsement.
- Ask City College of San Francisco to mail my transcripts directly to the OSBN.
- Ask the CABRN to send me verification of my own licensure, in a "state secured envelope" which I am not to open, but instead immediately forward to the OSBN
I've been eagerly checking my mailbox every afternoon, hoping to see this "state secured envelope" -- but no dice yet.
Yesterday I was faced with some bad news and some good news.
The bad news: still so sign of a "state secured envelope" from the CABRN.
The good news: my Oregon RN License, in a regular old run-of-the-mill envelope from the OSBN! I guess that "state secured envelope" must have been mailed directly to the OSBN!
PS -- as an added kicker though, the extra bad news: the way the expiry works in Oregon, is such that my new RN license is set to expire 31st Oct 2007! The good news, though, is that in Oregon I have no CEU requirements, so I don't have to kill myself getting a bunch of CEUs in a short period of time!
