Getting Your PA Nursing Licensure

by Ecl09 Ecl09 Member

I've noticed a fair amount of recent or soon-to-be graduates asking about what they need to do next to get their nursing license -- how to register for the NCLEX, what fees are involved, how to complete required CE courses, etc. My school just put out a guide on how to get your nursing license in Pennsylvania, and I thought it might be really helpful for other members living/working in the PA. The guide explains each step you need to take to become licensed and lists the required fees.

Here is a link to the licensure guide if you want to check it out: How to Become a Nurse in Pennsylvania

Good day:

"First, you must earn a minimum of an associate's degree in nursing"

Please consider a correction to the above as Reading Hospital Systems runs a diploma-based school, and they can sit for the NCLEX.

Thank you.
