USRN License Endorsement Application | Processing and Registration

What do you need to know about USRN License Endorsement?

According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, a nurse who is licensed in one jurisdiction can normally be licensed in another through a process known as license endorsement. The licensure decision in the second state is based on verification of licensure (some states accept verification from a current state of licensure) and meeting all of the state's additional licensure standards.

How to get an endorsement for a nursing license?

The stages of the USRN License Endorsement Application are usually as follows:

STEP 1: Pre-Endorsement or Credential Evaluation Phase

  • The candidate will apply for school credentials and license validation requests. It will also declare the originating state of the candidates during this application process. The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools, Inc. or CGFNS will evaluate their credentials if they have met the education requirements in the US. It also includes a statement about the foreign nurse's education being comparable to US standards.

STEP 2: Endorsement Application Phase

  • It is the method of licensure for registered nurses who have previously been licensed in another state in the US, as well as some Canadian registered nurse licensees, who wish to transfer to another state. If the state board requires the Credential Evaluation Service or CES application to be processed, this is the following step once the CES is completed.
