PA Graduate Registered Nurse Permit HELP

Posted

Can someone help me figure out where do I send the oficial transcript to the board. All the information they say is that my university has to send the transcripts directly to them. But my university only sends transcripts to an email or an address and the board doesn't provide one on their website.

I would have thought your university would know who to send transcripts to

I am out of state so my university doesn’t really know😂

Is the issue caused by you attending a school out of state (you are in PA, attending a FL school, for example)? And then you want to become licensed in PA, so the FL school needs to send transcripts to PA Board?

I would start by contacting the PA Board, I guess, and ask specifically for the email and mailing address. It seems odd to me that the school you are attending wouldn't have this type of contact information (or a way to obtain it) for all the states. If the school has out-of-state graduates, it seems reasonable to expect them to have that contact information necessary for all their degree programs, because I'm sure this happens with other students also. It might be an option to have the transcripts sent to you, and then you forward them on?
