I currently live in louisville ky. I am transferring to orlando florida. I know i have to apply for reciprocity(to transfer my cna license). But do i have to wait until i receive that in the mail there or can i go ahead and get the same type of job there or at least apply for jobs there ahead of time? I plan on moving in 1 month.Just trying to get a head start on things. Also i was wondering if anyone there knows of a good nursing school there? One that focuses on nursing without all the other college classes?caroljean6868@yahoo.com Thanks for any help or advice

1St of all contact the newyork board of nursing, They should be able to tell you if you need to retake the test or not.Some states you may have to re-test. You need to apply for "reciprocity"

Is their away to transfer my license to Arizona even though I was never employed in Florida. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

you need to find a way to reciprocate your license from Florida to Arizona. Most states have that transferability. Go through a nursing license office.

Arianna in Riverside, New Jersey said: Is your CNA certification still active? If it is then you dont need to re-take a CNA class in Arizona, you can get certification by endorsement. But, if your certification is expired then you will have to RE-TEST in Arizona.

I moved to Arizona and they are giving me a problem. Stating my clinical and class hours have to show on my certification from 1992. The transcript from the school shows 208 hours and Arizona stated they can't except that . I'm still fighting with them because they require 120 hours.

Call the nursing board n ask what information is needed. Than apply online before u plan on moving and apply for some jobs. Call human resources @ jobs n inform ur transferring.

Make sure you print out an endorsement form fill it out. Before mailing make copies of transcripts and be sure it has clinical and theory hours separate. You will need to also have paper stating you passed state board testing, certificate from school that you completed nursing course, and to be safe copy of pay stub, and copy of nurses license or certificate. Mail in money order for $50.00. Apply for jobs online before coming to Arizona and get your finger printing done out here. The address is Office of Long Term Care 1661 E. Cambelback Road Suite 195, Phoenix , AZ 85016, . You will need copy of birth certificate or pass port and $12 for finger printing. If you have that done it suppose to make matters much easier but it depends on Arizona State Board of Nursing . Wish you the best.

I was a cna in Jersey and know for a fact you can work in new jersey six months without a cna license but you must be in class and certified in that time frame I dont know about california I think you can just take the skills and written exam in california before you can work and pass both test,

In most cases you have to retake the cna test written and skills before you can work. I think this is bull if your a cna in one state you should be able to work any state.

If you already are Licensed, Certified, Registered or State Approved in your own State and want to move to another state, you will need to request reciprocity. This means that you are asking the new state to recognize the approval you received from your home state. Contact the State registry in your home state and request a "Application for Enrollment By Reciprocity". Ask them if you should send the completed form to them or to the state to which you are moving.

I did at home health care for 3 years when I lived in South Carolina but never got my CNA license. I want get it now since I can't find a job here in California but at some point I will be going to SC for a while and hopefully working at my old job. If I got my CNA license in SC and I'm there for at least 6 months and come back to California would I have to take the test over?

Hello, how long have you had your CNA in Florida? If it has not expired yet you should be able to transfer. You will have to put up a fight with Arizona Nursing Board because they do give people a heard time.

Maine has the highest standards for the CNA program, so as long as it's active it should transfer with no problems. You have to fill out the form, pay the fee, get fingerprinted, then done deal!! I'm moving to GA in a few weeks and doing the same thing.
