Changing my name/NP Certification


Specializes in Cardiac Critical Care.

So I'm graduating from NP school, getting married 2 weeks later, hopefully taking my boards maybe a month after that? So I want to change my name... but would it be easier to do it ahead of time (like through the school before I graduate and go ahead and get my RN license changed) OR just wait until I'm certified and all THEN bother with changing everything? Thoughts?

just wait to get a DEA until after so it matches your new last name... you can get everything else changed
