I left complex care pediatrics last November. I was home/school care PDN. Made the transition to LTC/sub acute. I love it. Even the higher patient load. People who want to progress. Even Advancing dementia is a non-issue for me with my background & experience. Working in a facility it’s not too hard to leave work at work. No one knows where I live. No one searching me on social media or begging my scheduler to give my personal contact info. Bonus points: non-smoking campus and no heaving smokers on staff so as I work through orientation I’m not abandoned by nurses or aides going out to smoke or vape. The patients/residents cannot smoke so no holding up a Med pass because someone is outside smoking.
Is it perfect? No. Am I much happier? Yes. Even with a month and a half of day/evening orientation for a die-hard night shifter

No NY is not a compact state. Even if it were if you are not a legal permanent resident of NY therefore if your home state is a NCL state you are not eligible to apply for a license in another compact state.
Making a fake license will not go well and can bar you from the profession and even work visas. When CGFNS or equivalent goes to verify your nursing license and discovers the fraud it will be reported to both nursing boards/councils. Creating a fake license is fraud
