    NV is not a compact state, so I think it might be harder to endorse there. YOu have to get a fingerprint card/check by the sherrifs dept, at work card, a drug card, etc... lots of hoops to jump thru. It took my daughter 5 months to get a job!

    Hi, how is your job hunting in New Mexico?

    I have a feeling that Nevada has a very tough market as well. Because lots of CA nurses who cannot find a job move to Nevada. After all, it is only 4 hour trip.

    I'm from NY and is considering moving to NM for the job opportunities there. Do I need to be endorsed to get licensed there? Does anyone know if I can start the process while still in NY. Any feedback much appreciated.

    You can start the process while in NY. If NY is not a compact state you will have to get endorsed.
