Question:

Dear Donna,

I am a newly graduated Michigan LPN, and I need to move to Illinois. How do I transfer my license from Michigan to Illinois?

Angie

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Angie,

You need to apply to the Illinois Board of Nursing for a license by endorsement. Go to http://www.idfpr.com/dpr/apply/forms/rn-en.pdf and start reading on page 5 under “Endorsement.” You must complete the application and requirements and pay a fee. The process takes from a few weeks to a few months. You may be eligible for temporary work permit in Illinois while your application is being processed.

Here’s an article you may find helpful: “Get Ready to Relocate” at http://www.dcardillo.com/articles/relocate.html.

Good luck!
Donna
