    I plan to relocate to Las Vegas soon. Can anybody tell me how long will it take to obtain a license by endorsement? Does Las Vegas issue a temporary license for a RN? I would appreciate your input/s with regards to this matter.

    Just want to say a WARM welcome to you!

    A long, long time ago, I used to be a musician on a cruise ship. We used to go to Alaska as part of the summer's run. Alaska was my favorite place to visit. I remember Sitka well! It was just a beautiful place to visit. Just beautiful.

    Anyway. . .


    I grew up in Sitka. My mother was a Russian Dancer and would do shows on the cruise ships that came in. Then she became a police officer LOL!

    Sitka holds a very dear place in my heart. I want to go back and visit so bad.

    I live in middle Georgia in a town so small that we have one blinking caution light. Welcome aboard.

    Northern New Hampshire on the Quebec border here! Closest hospital is 16 beds and is 30 min. away. We're an hour north of the northernmost McDonald's in NH, an hour north of the nearest traffic light, and 70 miles from the closest WalMart. We have to use old bag phones in the car instead of handheld cell phones (and the towers are bounced from Canada---talk about roaming fees! LOL!). I"m a CNA in LTC and commuting 1-1/2 hours each way currently to attend nursing school (the closest college). I want to do ARNP later and that is four hours each way so I'll have to stay there during the week, I guess!
