Resume help...Applying for license by endorsement

Nurses Job Hunt


Hi all, first post here and a new RN as of today :) I currently live in NJ but I am a registered nurse in the State of Delaware (because I was expecting to be working in Delaware). I will soon be applying for license by endorsement for NJ but I really want to start applying for jobs as soon as possible. On my resume, I will list that I am an active RN for Delaware, but should I put something like "Registered Nurse, New Jersey: Pending" or maybe "in the process of endorsement". I will be applying in NJ. I have no idea what to do?! Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Explain in your cover letter that you have recently graduated from school, passed NCLEX and are currently licensed in Delaware. Then explain that you have submitted your application for licensure in New Jersey and expect to be ready to work by X date.
