    O.k., I see. You had posted in the Criminal Hx forum, so I've moved it to the VA state forum so you can get replies.

    You may just need to contact the VA state board in order to get the information you need. Or, just check again on the website to verify.

    When you applied for licensure in Virginia, what address did you use on the application? Virginia and Maryland are both members of the Nursing Licensure Compact. If you applied for applied for licensure by endorsement in Virginia, using a Maryland address and nursing license, they will not issue you a license.

    As long as you maintain residency in Maryland, you can work in Virginia using your Maryland license. If you have relocated to Virginia, then you will need to apply for licensure by endorsement. After you receive your Virginia license, your Maryland license will be inactivated as you can only hold one multi-state license.
