Thank you so much for clarifying that for me! The process makes more sense now! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question!
I have a question to ask that may have been covered before, but I was hoping I could get some additional clarification and advice on the matter. I am projected to graduate shortly and was looking into the potential of relocating to Oregon from Idaho. From what I understand, if you want to work in a non-compact state after being licensed in another, you have to apply for endorsement in that state. I hear that this process is rather similar in most states and involves a potentially lengthy wait-time and is somewhat costly. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be to my benefit to simply take the NCLEX in Oregon rather than go through the endorsement process? Or, would it be better to take it in Idaho since it is a compact state and would allow me greater latitude in relocation choices and then just get the Oregon endorsement?
I recently came across information concerning the USPHS Commissioned Corps and that really piqued my interest. A few previous threads over the years, as well as the USPHS website, have offered me some insight concerning the matter, but I was wondering if there were any nurses out there who are currently in the USPHS Commissioned Corps who could add to that information and tell me a little bit about their personal experience with the USPHS and what I could expect in regard to application, service, day-to-day life, etc. I know that those are some broad areas to cover, but any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
