How long does endorsing take and will I or can I get hired from newyork and do they Skype interviews?
Maybe this might help you learn about the FLA state to state endorsement FAQs,
if not, you could contact them, or, maybe someone who knows will come by and tell you how long it took them.
Apparently, applying online is faster than via snail mail, but, i am in process of doing this, and near as i can tell,
one still has to paper-mail the FBI fingerprint card, but, the Livescan fingerprints go through online. (but, i am still figuring out THAT part out, ha ha)
IF ANYONE KNOWS THIS, feel free to post, otherwise, i'm calling the fla BON on monday to clarify about mailing
the FBI card when i apply online
It is a 29 page application...ha. Oh my, how things have changed!! Used to only be a few pages long(like, maybe 5 or 10 pages) to get RN license in another state, and only one (1) kind of fingerprints were req'd, which you just could do at your local police station,
instead of trying to find a livescan provider in your state, that is approved for use in Florida.
Just seems trickier now than it used to be. (i'm old)
but, i am LOVING the nursys system, oh my, THAT is wayyyyyyyyy easier than what we used to have to do!! YAY!!
Re: skype, maybe some places will use a skype interview, and maybe some won't. I doubt there is any hardfast rule that would apply to every Florida facility...?
Re: being hired long distance, i have been hired a few times long distance, but, that was not lately............ i hear now it is harder for new grads, or even experienced nurses, to get hired in some areas of FLA, but, i don't know this for a fact.
