Notice: California Board Of Registered Nursing Rules Change On Issuance Of Temporary Licenses Or Interim Permits

Effective Monday, August 10, 2009, the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) will not issue a Temporary License or Interim Permit until the processing of fingerprints is completed by the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and have notified the BRN of the results. This will result in no Temporary Licenses or Interim Permits being issued at the counter, unless the processing of fingerprints have been completed.

This is a change from prior BRN policy. This change probably relates to the prior issues where nurses with prior criminal history had not been screened at the time of license application. Thus, all applicants should get their fingerprints and screening done as soon as possible in order to process their application timely.
