Are there any RNs who have completed the EC program, applied for licensure in AL and received licensure. Just wondering what hoops the BON had you to jump through in order to become RN. I contacted the board to inquire about this and the best answer that I could get was that "We evaluate each application for licensure on an individual basis".

Contact EC directly and ask your question. It is my understanding that only MD will not accept EC students at all. A lot of other states will accept EC students via reciprocity. So, you might have to get licensed as a new grad in a state other than AL and apply for reciprocity, and it might also take some number of clinical hours as an RN to endorse into AL.

Thanks but I've talked to EC and talked to the BON in AL. I want to hear from a RN who has actually been through the process to find out what they had to go through since the evaluation process carried out by the BON is done "on an individual basis".

One of the students in my CPNE group recently moved to AL and reported no trouble in endorsing into AL from another state. She applied for AL licensure approx. 4-6 months ago. She had about 3 years of RN experience at the time of applying to AL and didn't have any additional requirements to complete for AL licensure.

However, the AL board website does mention a specific case where they denied licensure to an EC grad who was a paramedic but like other states, they may treat a new grad and an experienced RN trying to endorse differently.
