How Do I Transfer My Texas RN to Missouri RN??? Afterwards.. any luck with JOBS???

  1. 0 Hey all,
    I am a recent graduate of a nursing school in Texas and moved to central Missouri after getting married. I had planned to work in Texas until life changed it's plans and now am a new graduate (May) and am in the wrong state for my license. So...
    HOW do I get registered to work as a Registered Nurse (BSN) in Missouri???
    I know it is part of the compact act and that does make things easier, but I think my brain is just so fogged from stress and moving and life that I've just not got it all together to figure out. So if anyone could lead me in the right direction that would be SOOOOO much appreciated!

    Also... once I get my license changed is there ANY luck with jobs?!? I've been looking around (we live in central Missouri and i've been looking as far as KS on the south/east area and it seems hopeless. Insight on New Grad positions/when they open up/any advice welcome!!

    Check the MO BON website and look for the section on applying for licensure by endorsement. All the info and forms you need should be there.

    Contact the MO BON. They are online, and all the info will be there.

    I don't know anything about the job situation.

    You might have more luck if you post in the missouri forum?

    Welcome to MO! It's fantastic here. Definitely contact the BON, I'm sure they can walk you through the process of getting licensed here.

    About jobs, I'm in southwest MO. Cox (in Springfield) has a new grad program that starts in January and June. St. John's Mercy (also in Springfield) has a huge list of jobs on their website. A lot of my nursing school classmates got hired there as new grads. I'm not sure about elsewhere in the state. Good luck!

    There are a ton of nursing positions in SW MO where I live due to the recent tornado in Joplin.

    Write the state board of nursing for the state you want to practice in for direction.

    If you have already passed the NCLEX and have an compact RN License in Texas, then you can practice in Missouri already

    Thanks yall! I finally found the attachment with the "to do" of practicing in MO and called to clarify some things. I appreciate yall's help and man I wish I lived further south!

    We are in central west missouri, im around warrensburg, lee's summit, and might consider some of Kansas city if I can't find anything.. and right now it's scarce.

    I really enjoyed working in the NICU for basically 3 months in nursing school. It just became my nitch and i was blessed with an instructor that allowed me to go there a lot for clinicals, but unfortunately it seems everything here that is a specialty you need to have "experience" of at least a year in that field, but as the saying goes.. you can't get it without a first job!!

    Not if the individual has moved from TX to MO (as the OP notes s/he has done), unless the person is also maintaining a permanent home in TX.
