What items do you need to transfer a RN license from NY to CT?

  1. What documents/items do you need to transfer a Registered Nurse License from New York to Connecticut? I recently passed my exam that I took in a different city but now I want to transfer that License to where I live. Is it hard for a new RN with no experience to find a job in CT?
    Also, any advice on how I could possibly land on a job as a new RN would be appreciated?

    Thanks for the help!

    I would think you need to call the BON in CT. But I ahve never transferred a licence, I am just thinking thats where I would start.
    Good luck in your new state!

    Well I have and already lived in CT my whole life. I was just attending a Princeton Review in Wisconsin. Do you need to send in a college transcript because I have already attempted the NCLEX RN in CT several times. Thanks for your help!

    You should contact the BON directly and ask what their process entails.

    Check the BON website out and see what is required to endorse license

    You need to check with the BON as most require you to meet requirements as if applying initially and if a CES report is required you have to arrange for transcripts to be sent to CGFNS along with your application and any other documents CGFNS require

    Then I suggest you contact them as they should already have paperwork

    endorsing a license is going to be so hard. So RN temporary permit is like instantly received so i could work under a permit
