New Mexico Licensure Question

  1. 0 Hi everyone. Does anyone know how long before an ATT (Authorization To Test) can be issued in NM and how long is it valid? Thanks and have a nice day!

    i don't know if the info i got is correct but i was told that if you applied for registration in NM BON, you receive your eligibility as well as ATT in around 3 months. i was also told that the ATT is valid for like 3 months from receipt. that's all i know. hope that helped.

    It 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

    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 BON's requirements, you can even get a temporary permit in one day when you visit their Sacramento office.

    I am wondering why you think this belongs in "International Nursing"??????
    New Mexico is one of the 50 states, it's between Arizona & Texas, became a state in 1912.

    Mexico is a country, New Mexico is one of the 50 states. Please clarify which one you're speaking about.

    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.

    hi! i'm taking the CGFNS exam this September and I’m planning to apply for NCLEX this month. Just wanted to ask the following:

    1. I want to apply for NM because of its speedy processing but my heart’s is in NY. I understand that if I choose NY, it will take me 9-11 months unlike NM which will only take me 3 months at most. I’m planning to apply for NM and then apply an endorsement/reciprocity for NY after. How long will the reciprocity will take? Is the time needed to apply for reciprocity equivalent to the time if I apply directly to NY instead of NM and then later endorse to NY? Which plan should I take: NM then endorse to NY or apply directly to NY? Which time will cost me less?

    2. does NY require an SS# before they will issue the license just like in CA? I couldn't find a NY question & answer forum like this.

    I’m hoping that you guys could help me with my dilemma. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! GOD BLESS
