What steps need to be taken to credential in a different state? I am studying to be a PMHNP in Missouri (restricted practice). My end goal is to practice in Arizona (full practice).

I'm assuming you mean credentialing with insurance companies?

You need to get your AZ licenses first, then find a job and your employer will do the credentialing with insurance companies.

I am referring to professional licensure.

Once you get your Missouri licenses, apply to get your AZ RN and NP licenses by endorsement. Look up AZ's board of nursing to see what they require. The requirements and processes are usually clearly laid out.
