Doing some California dreaming, but unsure how to get an RN license in California?
Getting a nursing license in California is easy with American Mobile. We have created a streamlined approach that gets travel nurses ready to work in The Golden State—where they can take advantage of many high paying travel nursing jobs.
We will guide registered nurses through every step, expedite the licensure process, and can even reimburse nurses’ California license fees.

To qualify for a California nursing license by endorsement as an RN, applicants must:
If all requirements are not met, a nurse can apply for California RN licensure by examination.
The California Board of Registered Nursing requires license applicants to provide:
Applying for California RN licensure can seem complicated and time-consuming, but American Mobile has developed a system that gets travel nurses ready to practice—quickly and easily.
Our licensing team provides:
The California Board of Registered Nursing cites a 10-12 week average turnaround for permanent nursing licenses, or 8-10 weeks for temporary licenses, once all documentation is received.
The good news? Travel nurses can shorten these times by several weeks, by working with American Mobile’s board liaison and following our expedited process!
California is not part of the Nurse Licensure Compact, which allows nurses in more than 30 states in the compact to work across state lines without getting an additional license. Nurses with a compact state license will still need to apply for California RN licensure by endorsement.
An initial California RN license is issued for two birthdays, not two years, and will expire the last day of the month following an applicant’s birth date. From that date on, it will expire every two years.
Nurses can renew online, and must provide renewal fees and fingerprinting for an active status license. After the first renewal period, an RN will also need to complete 30 hours of continuing education in order to maintain his or her license.
