applying RN license by endorsement during grace period

  1. 0 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.

    You do not have to be present in the US to endorse your license however you do have to meet state requirements which do vary
