I am a nursing student in CA and have to give a group lecture on how to get a license in another state. I wanted to include some info about temporary permits but cannot find a lot of information on the state websites and ncsbn.org. Are temporary permits usually good for 90 days unless specifically approved by that state's board of nursing? If you worked for a registry and worked across state lines; would the registry complete your paperwork for a temporary permit? If you got a temporary permit in a compact state would you be able to work in other compact states? or would you be limited to the state where you received your temp permit? I am assuming the temp permits are for nurses waiting on their nclex results and travel nurses? If anyone could clarify the reason and rules of temp permits would be great.
