How to transfer a nursing license to New York/ easier options?

  1. I will be attending nursing school in Florida, however I will want to work in New York. How would I go about transferring the Florida license i earn to a New York one, or how would I go about getting a New York license while attending a Florida school? Thank you.

    If you go to school in FL, that doesn't mean you need to have a license in FL after you graduate. To get a license, you have to apply to the BON for one. You could completely skip applying for a license in FL if you won't be working there at all and just apply with the BON of NY for a license.

    Thanks! Would I need a Florida license if I'm planning on getting my BSN in Florida after becoming an RN?

    That would depend on the school. Many may accept an out of state license- all they require is a license.
