Hi everyone! Quick question on contact hours. I tried searching for the answer through the archives but couldn't find the right info. I originally had my nursing license in MA (still keep it active) and endorsed to CA when I moved here. I just renewed my MA license and also need to renew my CA license. Anyone know if I can use the contact hours from the MA renewal towards my CA renewal? MA requires 15 hours and CA requires 30, so if I go ahead and obtain 15 more hours for CA would I be all set? Or do I need to get an additional 30. The contact hours are approved by both states (I checked) but I didn't know if we're allowed to use them towards both states.

Thanks!!

I think that if as long as they are approved by both states, you can use them for both states.

However, you may want to check with the CA BON for the official answer.
