Applying for license in KY

Posted

Does anyone know if KY is open to licensing nurses with a history of discipline in another state? And would you then be able to work in all compact states. TIA

Most states will at least consider your application, provided all discipline sanctions have been successfully met in the previous home state. They will want to know the circumstances of the discipline. Be thorough, give them what they want (paperwork, etc).
