I am wondering if anyone can give me additional information on how to apply for a multi-state license. Currently, I am licensed in the state of Florida (a compact state) but my permanent state of residence is in Illinois (a non-compact state). Since I went to school in Florida, my advisor and I determined that it would be easier to obtain a Florida license and obtain an Illinois license through endorsement.
Most of my time in Florida was spent in different dorms, so I kept my drivers license, W2s, voters registration, and tax returns registered to my Illinois address. Therefore, my license in Florida is single state. I am hoping to now apply for a multi-state update. This is where most of my questions come in.
Recently a family member has moved to Florida and I am considering changing my drivers license address to theirs while still residing in Illinois. It is my mindset that since I already have the Florida license, it would be beneficial to apply for multi-state licensure because I do want to do travel nursing in the future.
Has anyone been in a similar situation, or has tips to get this update?
At time of license renewal, will I have to show my address and proof of residency again? My family might consider moving to a new state, so it would be discouraging losing the compact capabilities at renewal time.
Has anyone submitted fingerprints from out of state to a Florida Livescan facility?
Thank you for any information you can give!
