I'm an anxious mess and would love to hear if anyone else has had any trouble transferring their LPN to Pennsylvania. I graduated from nursing school
in '94 in NY where I have worked as an LPN for over 17 years full time. My husband took a great job in PA and I'm supposed to be joining him ASAP but I have keep having hurdles thrown at me obtaining this license. PA granted me a temp license but sent me a letter saying that they need more information regarding my schooling and the hours in the program bc they require a pratical nursing program to be 1500, but mine like most of our LPN programs in NY was 1220! So while they debate on my acceptability I had to obtain statements from employers regarding my LPN duties and hours worked. I have worked with a clean license and record for so long it's hard to believe that this is an issue. I'm afraid of what will happen if they deny me, what does that mean? I will never be allowed to utilize my license in PA? I miss my husband but financially I have to keep working an earning my LPN salary for this move to be successful. Any help or insight would be much appreciated. I started this process in June and its taking too long!
