    The best place to start is on PA Bon site.

    Not sure about PA but if it is anything like IL it is a hard to find. The web site for IL is very outdated and very very hard to find any information. I was helping a friend from another state to find the info and i spent almost 2 hours on google and yahoo trying to find the information. The state boards site for IL had no search or help in the matter. Main thing to look for is "endorsement", that is what finally helped me find the information but even then took forever.

    You will need to just follow the instructions for License by Endorsement, you will find all of the information needed on their website.

    This is the same procedure that anyone follows when they wish to get licensed in additional states. You continue to keep the other licenses as long as you keep them current, they do not go out of status when you get a license in the new state.

    There is actually no limit to the number of licenses that any nurse can hold.

    If you go from one compact state to another, the first state will cancel your license when your new license comes through.

    I endorsed my California licensure into Texas when I relocated 2 years ago.
