I passed my NCLEX last 2008 but i just got my California RN license this 2013. I am now living in Las Vegas and was wondering if I still need to go through the same process as new applicants. I was hoping reciprocity will be alot easier since I already have my CA license. Also, it asks there when was the last time I practiced nursing. It was 5 years ago, when I was still in the Philippines. Does it matter? I hope you guys can give me advice. Thank you.
