Sure, just check out their website: <http://www.in.gov/pla/2507.htm>. If you already registered with Pearson Vue, then you need to contact them and change the BON to Indiana. This will cost you $50, I believe. As far as the application by examination, there is a form that Indiana wants filled out by the director of your nursing school certifying that you are a graduate of their program. You need to attach a 2x2 photo to this form that you and the director will sign verifying your identity.
I do not remember if I mailed this form in with the application and $50 fee or the school mailed it in directly. I believe it was the former. I found the staff at the Indiana BON to be very personable and extremely helpful! You get a live person as soon as you call--no automated system. They helped me out so much. I was unable to test within my ATT dates because of pregnancy issues and they kindly canceled and reissued my ATT so that I would not lose my $200 with Pearson Vue. I am so incredibly appreciative. They give the impression that they really want to keep their state licensed nurses. Do I sound like a commercial for Indiana Nurses? I am from Michigan.
Indiana does not have any CEUs, so if you keep your renewal fees paid it will be easy to maintain the license for whatever reason. I am in the endorsement process now. I have read posts on this site about the long delays. I also called the Michigan BON and was told that it would take 6-8 weeks or longer for processing. Plus, there is a fingerprint requirement. Indiana does not have that. Every state is different and we just have to respect that. I have an outstanding job offer in Detroit and am very eager to start. I hope this helps.
