How do I obtain a PA nursing license?

  1. I am a RN in Ohio and looking to possibly move to Pa. Can anyone give me an idea on how I obtain a Pa license? Thanks so much!

    It only took me 2 weeks after mailing my application to receive my PA license in the mail. I applied by endorsement from the state of Maryland. It was the easiest application process. No fingerprints, no background check, no notarizing, no picture! It was just a 3-4 page application, a money order of about $100, and $30 Nursys verification. A walk in the park compared to some other states.

    I know this is an old thread but just curious if anyone recently has had any trouble with getting a PA license? It has been about a month and they say it should take longer because they are behind but I am supposed to start my new job in Philly next Monday and do not believe that I will be able to because they are behind.
