RN license required to teach in other states...

  1. Greetings,

    I'm an active and practicing RN in PA who was recently hired by an online company for online teaching assignments. I've been given my first assignment, and it is for a campus which is physically located in Ohio. I'm told that I'm required to apply for a teaching permit/temporary license from the Ohio Board of Nursing before I can start teaching. Does anybody know if this is fairly common in all 50 states, or if this only applies to certain states?

    I would think this applies to all states. You couldn't provide care in a state without a license there.

    you can get info from the BON in different states, but I believe it is an expectation that you are licensed in that state. You are probably going to be expected to know the BON rules in that state as well.
