My original nursing license is from Michigan. I moved to Texas a month ago and I now have my Texas nursing license. My license in Michigan is up for renewal and Im trying to decide if I should renew it, make it inactive, or let it expire? My husband is in the military and we will be moving every 3 years...we dont plan on being back in Michigan for a couple decades to come. I have read several blogs stating to never let go of your license go in the original state you got it. If I do decide to make my license inactive in Michigan, does anyone know how to do it?
One thing that blew me away: Florida was going to charge me as much for making my license inactive as I would have paid for a renewal (Oklahoma charged me nothing). I obtained the license by endorsement several years ago, believing that I might have to move there (the move never happened). I was very short of cash at the time the license came due, so I had no choice but to let it lapse. I will have to see what it will cost to reactivate it should I ever need it in the future.
