I've called both my state board of nursing (Ohio) and they didn't really know too much, they told me that I needed to call the board of nursing to where I was moving to and ask them all my questions. I also ended up going there in person and they told me the same thing. I did call the Virginia board of nursing but they didn't seem to know a lot and I think they got to the point where they where just answering what they thought would be the answer. I had called twice to the Virginia board of nursing and received 3 different answers on the same question about the endorsement paper... confusing I know!
My situation is I am moving from Ohio where I do have my RN licensure but have not practiced nursing, to Virginia where I will be starting a job in April. The Endorsement paper asks:
"Please declare your state(s) of current practice:" (if it will help u understand the form questions it can be found here under RN section: http://www.dhp.virginia.gov/nursing/nursing_forms.htm
I was told to put Ohio even though I have never worked in Ohio as an RN but have my license there. Then I was told to put Ohio and VA even though I don't have a nursing license or have ever worked in Virginia....
Then I was told that N/A would be ok to put there, but I think she might have said that was ok because I asked if N/A would go there.
Also I wanted to know about CE's and once I have my endorsement for VA would I still have to do CE's for Ohio board of nursing and do I still have to renew the Ohio licensure or would I do that through VA nursing board?
And does anyone know how long it would take to get a licensure transferred over to another state?
