What I had to do here in Texas was call the Board of Nursing and they directed me to the Nurse Aide Department by giving me the number. Once I called they sent me the info. I needed to transfer my certification from MD. to Texas it takes a week or two but it's worth the wait. Try calling that state board of nursing they should help you get all the info. you need to transfer. Good Luck!

What I need to know is, is my licence good there?
I moved here from IN. and my licence transfered from there to here.
I am hoping that they will also transfer Maryland.

You will just call or go on line to the MD.Board of Nursing it takes no time to do and you can get a job asap in MD.

go online t o the oklahoma nursing registry it will ask you to type in your license number if you dont have it thats ok it will look you up by name. most certifications are only good for one to two years depends on the state if you have not worked as a cna in more then two years they will make you retest you don't have to take the class just the test. hope this helps.

Sabrina in Salem, Oregon

Hi, I just moved to Oregon in Sept. 2010. I had to pay $132.00 to get my Oregon C.N.A. license. Plus put in an application with 400 hrs under a nurse. I drove to Portland Oregon were the Board of Nursing is for Oregon & handed my application in personally & waited 2 weeks and looked on line and there was my licence. U also have to go to have a finger printing done at the state police office but u pay for that out of the $132.00. I would go on line now and to the oregon Board of Nursing and get the phone number and call them and have them to send u the application and get started on it right away.

Thanks,
Sabrina C.N.A
