    I already submitted my international nurse endorsement application to Vermont and they also opened the file for me. On the application, i never filled up the section about nursing work history since i never work as a Registered nurse as long as you graduated within the past 5 years. I graduated March 23, 2005. Am i within the 5 years? Why are they asking me about work history?

    You may want to ask the state of Vermont why they are asking about work history. Since you're outdated in nursing you may want to consider taking some refresher courses as you're not going to be desirable when trying to find employment anywhere. If your ultimate goal is to work in the US then you really need to think about taking those refresher courses and updating yourself because there is no employer who is going to take you when there are seasoned nurses out there who are applying for jobs and also fresh new grads in the US who are current in their education. I've heard that even people who have been out of school for a year are having issues also finding employment with those who do consider grads with zero experience. Good luck

    On their website, it stated that you must have worked as a nurse 120 days in the last 5 years/ 50 days in the last 2 years or have graduated in the last 5 years in order to sit for NCLEX through the State of Vermont. I may not have the nursing experience since i never work as a nurse but i graduated within the last 5 years. I graduated March 23, 2005 to be exact.

    It depends on when your license expires, if it expires in March you are out of luck. The goal is that nurses have current experience and knowledge of nursing practice. The good news is you can take a short refresher course once you have a position in the USA to re activate your license.

    Contact the state of Vermont with your valid question. I agree with MedsurgRN, but at the sametime I can see your concern because of your graduation date.

    If you're copying word for word from their webiste it really doesn't make sence because they're stating that you must have worked 120 days in the last 5 years, 50 days in the last 2 years or have graduated within the last 5 years. The wording to me is very confusing, and I can see your concern. If you go by the last part where it states that you must have graduated within the last 5 years, you're really cutting it very short since your 5 years is almost up. If I were you I would submit your application right away and also contact Vermont, they really are the only ones who can help you. Good Luck

    All the nursing "refresher" courses I'm aware of require that you have a current, active license (in that state) to be eligible; so that idea wouldn't help someone trying to get a license (unless s/he was able to get some kind of special permission/waiver).

    (Or did I misunderstand your point?)

    I believe you have a valid point, it seems like they issue a temp license to achieve this goal.
