    Graduating in Florida but Moving to Mississippi

    Which state are you a legal resident of? If you are a legal resident of any compact state, you can not apply for licensure in any of the other compact states. In your situation, if you are a legal resident of FL you have to apply for licensure in FL. When you relocate to MS you should apply for licensure by endorsement as soon as possible, and you will be allowed to work on your FL license while your MS license is being processed. If your state if legal residence is a non-contact state then you can apply for licensure in MS. ETA: For residency purposes, the Nurse Licensure Compact considers your state of legal residency. This might be seperate from the state that you physically live in.

    RN Licensing by NCLEX in Maryland??

    You are correct, she doesn’t have to apply for initial licensure in WV. She is able to apply for initial licensure in any of the non participating enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) states she wishes. However, if she wants to work in MD, and is a resident of WV, she is going to have to apply for licensure in WV and apply for licensure by endorsement when she relocates. From the MD Board of Nursing’s Nurse Multi-State Licensure Compact page. ETA: When she relocates to MD and applies for licensure by endorsement she will be allowed to work using her WV license while her application is behind processed.

    As both MD and WV are members of the enhanced Nurse License Compact, and you are a resident of WV, you are going to have to apply for licensure in WV. If you are do apply for licensure in WV, you will be allowed to work in in MD on your WV license, while your MD license is being processed. Best wishes.

    Reporting arrest to Fl BON

    Whether you will need to report this is going to depend on whether your asked about arrests or convictions. I can’t speak for FL, but none of the states in which I have been licensed have asked about arrests, only convictions or pleas, either guilty or nolo contendere. Best wishes.

    Would this shirt get me into trouble in class?

    If it were me, I would pass on wearing it to class. While it might not "get you in trouble," it is likely that someone is going to find it offensive. You should also consider this. If you have to ask is "something is okay" or question whether doing something is "going to get you in trouble" you should probably pass. Best wishes with your education.
  11. Agreed. However, I am a veteran as well, and if I were to discover that an applicant had a less than honorable discharge, it would definitely be a consideration in my decision. Not saying that I wouldn't offer a position, but the applicant would really have to sell themself.

    Why are accelerated BSN programs closing?

    While I haven't noticed this trend in my area, this doesn't surprise me. And, I think you have your answer here, when you compare cost and length of the accelerated BSN with the master's entry programs.

    I'm back with math help needed again please!

If you are interest in learning dimensional analysis you might the attachments in the first two posts in the following thread helpful: Master Your Drug Calculations BEFORE You Get to Nursing School.
