Licensure in Another State

If you would like to obtain a license in another state, contact that state board of nursing for an application and instructions.

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing's web page at contains information on how to contact all state boards of nursing.

Every state requires that you at least have your original state of licensure complete an endorsement (licensure) verification form. The form will be provided to you by the state in which you request a license or go to to see if your license can be verified through the Nursys system.
