I'm looking to transfer my Nevada license to NY and I'm having great difficulty. Is there anyone with experience doing this or willing to lend some of their time to help me out?? Thanks for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day :)

I recently transferred my RN license from NY to SC and had no problems.

You will need to get in contact with the state education department for the state you are transferring to and request to speak with the Nursing division for that state. They, in turn, will send you out all of the paperwork you will need to do the transfer with specific instructions to follow. Every state has different requirements. Be sure to inquire as to what their requirements are.

Good luck to you.

You can’t necessarily transfer your license to NY as it’s not a compact state. You have to go through the process of getting it endorsed and apply for an actual license.

I lived and worked in Nevada ( Las Vegas). Nevada and New York are not Compact States. So you have to apply for New York nursing license by Endorsement. But you have to know the requirements and gather them before you apply. Go to New York Nursing Board website and you’ll find them there and the phone number. I recommend for you to call them so you’ll know exactly what you have to do. Also New York doesn’t do Temp license. Your current license should be active. I hope this will help. Just google the “ New York Nursing Baord”, everything is there.

So Nevada is a Compact State that makes easy to transfer, but NY is not so you may have to take an additional test to transfer. Look into the nurse license Compact state. It’s easy to transfer a NY license else where because they are strict about the licensing. I would contact the Board of Nursing in Nevada for som help. Best of luck.

Call the Dept. of Education in NY State (the authority which issues licenses for NY nurses), and ask what paperwork may be missing. Remember NY is a Non-compact state and will need far more paperwork than compact states do.

Mine got approved 2 weeks. There just be some missing things they’re requiring/requesting . I’d contact them directly on phone to see issue

hello there,
I applied for reciprocity, Contact NY board of nursing and find requirements on their site. Every state has different rules. It's a shame that neither one of those states are compact. Hope this helps. Have a great day!

Shouldn’t be difficult. I know you need Nursys verification. Fees etc . You must do 2 courses online . I can’t remember them. It does however take a while. My friend is also waiting
