What our travelers say about Emerald Express…

Travel Nurse

Emerald’s California licensing program was very straight forward and convenient. Considering how much the California Nursing Board requires, Emerald made it super easy to organize everything and get through the process smoothly!

Eden R.
Travel Nurse

Obtaining my CA license wouldn’t have been easy without the help of my Emerald Team. The process took about 3 months and lots of paperwork but the team who is on my case made it all easy for me. They were prompt and responsive to anything that I had questions about. Thank you, Emerald Health!

I loved going through Emerald to get my CA license. I tried on my own and it was way too complicated. The California Licensing Program was seamless, quick and very convenient.
