I am a foreign-educated RN, about to take my boards and hoping to find some answers here. I love Oklahoma and have worked for 3 years in OK as a CNA/CMA and about to take my RN boards now. Because of the ordeal we have to go through as foreign-educated nurses to register for licensure in Oklahoma, we choose to register in other states,mostly California. Therefore, I'll be obtaining my license (hopefully), from California. I do not want to leave Oklahoma though especially because I've got a 16-month old son and he's lived all his life (
) here. So my question is thus: Is there any place in OK that would hire an RN with an out-of-state license? Or what would I have to do to get Oklahoma licensure as a foreign-educated nurse?
Thanks for all your help
