- 0Dec 29, '10 by andreafriedenHello, I live in the state of IL. I hold a RN licnese in the state of IN. I haven't worked in a few years, as I decided to be be a stay at home mom. I want to resume working again, but am unsure what I need to do to obtain a RN license for the state of IL. My biggest worry is the lack of continuing education credits. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
