Update on CA NCLEX Endorsement to VT Prior to Expiration
October 8, 2008 - In this climate of immigration retrogression, it was recommended that California NCLEX nurses endorse to Vermont prior to the expiration of the 3-year window of opportunity to provide SSA numbers to The CA State Board of Nursing. The VT State Board reports that it has experienced an increase in endorsement requests as a result of this issue, leading them to review their policy and make some procedural changes, as follows:
- VT requires the official NCLEX exam results. For example if you took the exam through CA; you will need to contact the California Board of Nursing and request a "Certified Copy of Test Results with Photo" to be sent to the State of Vermont Board of Nursing. California's fee for this is $10.00. (If you've already completed this step please proceed to step 2)
- VT will need to have the Verification of Education Form completed by your school and your official transcripts sent to them. You can print the verification of education form from their website www.vtprofessionals.org on pages 5 and 6 of the International Nurse Application.
- VT requires the License Verification Form completed for your original nursing license and your most current nursing license. You can print this form from their website www.vtprofessionals.org on page 7 of the International Nurse Application.
Note: For nurses in the United Kingdom: VT can verify the license online. You need to fill out the Verification Form by putting in the caller code and pin number so that they can access your information from the NMC website.
Once VT receives this information, they will then be able to process your application for licensure through the state of Vermont.
As mentioned previously, please be aware when you start the re-endorsement process, that the CA Board of Nursing will have considered your application abandoned and your file will no longer be active. Thus, it will be necessary for you to submit all educational credentials a second time to CA. While it will be inconvenient to do so, it will protect you from having to re-take the NCLEX-RN exam.
We are once again grateful to Janet Smith, RN, BSN, NCLEX Coordinator/Adevia Health, for continuing to stay on top of this information and for sharing this update with us.
