Many states have reciprocal licenses. I had a Maryland license when I moved and started practice in New Mexico. I could work without a NM license as long as my Maryland License was current, I received the NM license before Maryland expired. My school was in New York.
Sorry, but what you are speaking of is the Compact License, it is not a reciprocal license. And please take a close look at your license, since you have left your state where your initial license was issued (Maryland), the compact part of it is no longer valid. It states that you need to notify the BON of Maryland when you move out of state. It was actually not valid for you to work in NM once you actually left Maryland.
But you now have a NM license so all is good.
Many states may require an additional course such as in HIV training, or infectious disease, these can be done on-line and for just an hour or two.
Not an issue at all when going to school in another state, this is done all of the time.
