STATE BOARD OF NURSING WEBSITES
FOR NURSING LICENSURE
In order to be eligible to work as a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Vocational Nurse, LVN (or Licensed Practitioner Nurse, LPN), you would need to obtain the respective licensure from the state you will work in. If you already hold a license from a state, but would like to be able to work in another state, you need to go though a process of "endorsement" of your current license by another state. The Board of Nursing for each state may have different endorsement requirements. We recommend that you review each state's requirements using the following links.
