    The best thing you can do is check with the TN state board of nursing. I'm a travel nurse from MO, and I'm now licensed in 3 other states, and working on more, all I do is check out the web site for each state, and down load the application for endorsement. Then, follow the directions. You have an advantage being from a state that is in the compact state. Hopefully Missouri will be there soon. Good luck, TN is my next assignment, I hope.

    One web site is http://www.ncsbn.org/regulation/boar...sing_board.asp

    There are several sites though. Tennessee is a compact state, they can tell you what states are also compact. Sorry, I don't know them all, do know that N.C, and TX are a couple of the 16. And Missouri and several others are thinking about it. Good luck.
