Hi Everyone, I am a new graduate nurse just passed my boards in August on Long Island in New York. I have been desperately applying to hospitals, SNF's doctors offices for 3-4 months now and not a single call back or interview. I am thinking of applying out of state in hopes that it is not as bad as it is here in New York. I was thinking of applying to either North Dakota, Florida, Pennsylvania. I am still a little confused about the nurse licensure compact but I guess what I am really wondering is am I allowed to apply out of state with my New York license and then get endorsed in another state? Or do you have to have the other states license first... Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
