    Go to the FLBON and follow the endorsement license procedure.

    Failed it 3 times in Florida & after 3 they make u take a refresher course but they offer none near me so I applied for NY because u can take it unlimited there just in case I failed again I wouldn't have to go thru a bunch of mess

    Congratulations!!!! You need to go to FBON and complete an application for endorsement. You will still be licensed in New York. The FBON website will provide you with all the required information for endorsement.

    I could be wrong, but reading through this, it seems to me that you might have some problems with the endorsement process:
    http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursi...ent-RN-LPN.pdf

    See point 1a on page 3. I could see how they could argue that the requirements for licensure in NY were more lenient since they allowed you to take NCLEX an infinite number of times while Florida requires a refresher course after 3 failed attempts. The application also asks for every time you took NCLEX- if they see that you failed 3x in Florida and then took it for NY to circumvent their requirements for a refresher course, I would hazard to guess that they wouldn't think too highly of that move. The only way to know for sure is to contact the FL Board of Nursing.

    I just got off the phone with Florida BON they said it doesn't matter all I need is NCLEX so it will be fine
