- 0Oct 20, '06 by nightingaleIt sounds like you have already been looking on the Board of Nursing Pages. If not, try a google search for both Board of Nursing for Scope of Practice. I took a quick look and you are right, it is not easily found. What you will need to do, as it sounds like you know, is contrast and compare.
Several years ago, when I graduated, I received a small booklet with small print on the NM Nursing Scope of Practice. My copy is long gone, sorry. Perhaps this is how they are still handling this information.
Good luck to you and let us know how you make out
- 0Mar 30, '07 by rn4ever?You can apply for initial licensure in NM. Then, you can always endorse to the other US States as long as you are able to comply with their requirements. For example, the CA BON requires that you have an SSN before they could issue you an actual license. And I even read that when you have all the CA BONís requirements, you can even get a temporary permit in one day when you visit their Sacramento office.
Quote from keiraHI .. how can I endorse later to New York or CAlifornia if i'll choose New mexico as my initial licensure? Do you know the requirements? and how long would it take? pls? thank you,,

New Mexico & Texas are part of the Compact as far as licensing goes.
I live in New Mexico but can practice in Texas with my New Mexico License.
