    hi, I suggest that you visit http://www.op.nysed.gov/nurse.htm. I am also applying for ny rn license. I am in CA right now but I have taken my NCLEX in Texas. NY has no specific application form for endorsement that is why you need to use the standard form that you can download in their website. You also have to complete the mandatory ceu's like the child abuse and infection control. I took mine in nursing spectrum. The total for the two courses is $55. You can also print the certificate right after you have taken the exam, which is good because I was able to send it together with my application form.

    I did this last year (CA to NY). You have to fill out all the forms on the website for your NY license. Pay the board money. Have verification of your license sent from CA and any other states you may be licensed in. Oh, take a child abuse class online too, I believe. Have school verification sent over. Then wait a few months and it may come through. Mine took 3-4 months from start to finish. Not a big deal just some nagging here and there when paperwork you need doesn't get there.

    Just transferred mine from CA to Ny early this year. It took about 8 weeks. I was originally licensed in MI so maybe that`s why it took so long since they had to verify with MI first.

    Don't forget to do nursys to verify your rn (if your state participates in it) i think it's nursys.com

    Featherz-

    I am applying for CA to NY. Because CA doesn't participate in Nursys, I have to mail this verification form to them and then they mail it to NY? Do you remember the address you mailed the request form to? Was it just to the board or a specific dept within? thanks so much!
