Hello, I have a question about applying RN license by endorsement while I am in Grace period of OPT. I have a BSN degree from United states and I have active license in Georgia. Now, I am trying to go to graduate school for Master program.
I just completed OPT end of May and OPT expired on 6/1/11. Therefore, I am in a valid grace period. Now I am trying to apply several schools in NewYork and California states. So I am going to apply NewYork and Cali RN license by endorsement.
1. Will NY and Cali Board of Nursing reject my application because I am in grace period of OPT? Is this true? Have you seen any cases in this situations?
Though I am staying legally in u.s. at this time, there's no legal document to prove this.
2. Can Non-US citizen apply other state license by endorsement while they are staying in home country??
I have seen people come to us by nclex exam, but have not heard coming with endorsement (who already have state license) I want to know if I have to physically present in the u.s. to apply endorsement.
I am afraid they will reject to issue a license because I am in a grace period
These boards operators don't seem to understand about opt and grace period.
I really appreciate for answering my questions and your time.
