Hi.I'm a licensed RN in Vermont but since I haven't practiced nursing since 2009 ,because I was in the Philippines back then,I placed my license in "inactive status". Now I am finally here in the US.My problem is that I wanted to transfer my license from Vermont to NJ(where I'm currently residing and planning to work) BUT since my license in Vermont is in "inactive status" I have to reactivate it again. Now the thing is that Vermont BON requires me to take the "re-entry program" since I could not renew my license without current hospital experience and I graduated more than 5 years ago(2005).Does anyone of you know what to do with my situation or how to go about with the re-entry program?I've heard that I need to have clinical sites lined up first?Is this true?And honestly, I don't know how getting those clinical sites lined up since it's different back in the Philippines.Do I need to go to each hospital to inquire and ask for permition to practice?Badly need someone to shed some light
.I really want to work as a RN again but for me to do so I have to undergo all of these process of renewing
.I'd gladly appreciate some thoughts.
