New York

Welcome to the Empire state!


Each state needs a competent medical workforce to meet the needs of it's citizens. However, the requirements for some health care professions are not the same in each state. That is why it is important to find out what is required of you as a future or current registered nurse before moving across state lines. Contact information is located at the bottom of this page.

Endorsements

New York doesn't have a separate form for endorsement per se; however, you will have a few more steps to take in addition to filling out the initial application for a license in New York.

Below are a few general requirements you will need for licensure:

Proof of completion of an approved RN training program

Completion of a mandatory course in identification and reporting of child abuse

Completion of an infectious control course

Complete application with fee of $143.00.

Proof of education

Proof of passing NCLEX or State Board Test Pool Exam results from either Nursys or from the jurisdiction in which you took one of the exams

Verification of licensure (you may use Nursys if your state participates)

Your license will be valid for life unless it is revoked.

This state requires nurses to hold current ACLS certification.
