Please Help!! Moving to Louisiana - 90 day work permit? Resume help??

  1. I am an RN with one year experience on a Med Surg floor and am moving to the state of Louisiana. I'm in the process of filling out my application for a license in Louisiana and have concerns about the 90 day work permit.

    Is it required to have a job lined up to apply for a 90 day permit?

    If I don't have one lined up yet can I fill one out later if I do?

    Also for my resume:

    Should I list my current address (which is in Ohio) or the address I'm moving to in February?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Here is the instructions to apply for endorsement in Louisiana:

    1. You have to apply for a temp permit when you apply for licensure.

    2. To be eligible for a temp permit, you must already have a job offer and have Louisiana residency.

    3. If not applying for a temp permit, it shouldn't matter what address you use. You can always change it.

    It is possible that any of my info is wrong, so you should call the board.
