OMG!!!! Really??? You've probably been in nursing longer than some of them have been walking the earth! I know that was the case when I had to tackle the GA BON just to get licensure as an RN. But, unfortunately, my LPN instructor from 1984 told us of your very situation years ago regarding endorsement to other states. Back then, she said that if we moved to another state, we would have to make up the difference in clinical hours if the new state's BON required more hours than what our current state requires. But I don't think the BONs thought the whole thing through enough to address the needs of experienced nurses seeking endorsement. They should revise that to address a certain amount of clinical hours, or lack of. This is ridiculous! You could come into the hospital and teach them a few things with your years as a nurse!
Although I have no intentions of moving to Oklahoma, as an Excelsior graduate and a current Excelsior BSN student, I'm very, very disappointed to hear how states continue to treat their fellow-nurses simply because of their choice of nursing programs. Heavens forbid one of them should be in need and the only one to help would be an out-of-state nurse. Just tell them to hold on and pray until you finish up THEIR required clinical hours.
