I was recently approached by the folks at Nursing License Map about collaborating to share their resources with readers here. After doing some more research, I realized what an incredible source of information this was and jumped at the opportunity (so much so that their banner is now a permanent fixture in the sidebar to your right). They regularly update their information, and link to state nursing boards so that you can verify information as needed. As someone who is considering a move to another state, I think this site will prove valuable on many levels!

So without further ado, here is additional information about the site, straight from its creators…

Nursing License Map is brought to you by Nursing@Georgetown, an innovative Master of Science in Nursing program delivered online by Georgetown University’s renowned School of Nursing & Health Studies, which is part of Georgetown University Medical Center.

Nursing License Map was created because of the large amount of research and information required by students of Nursing@Georgetown matriculating all over the country. Nursing License Map provides current and prospective nurses with a wealth of information on licensing requirements, education, nursing financial aid and salary information for all 50 states — for free.

The homepage features an interactive map of the United States. Users can click on any of the states and will be then directed to a state-specific page. On each state’s page, education and licensure requirements for nurses are outlined accordingly. This information is derived directly from state boards of nursing around the country and updated annually to ensure accuracy and timeliness.

Nursing salary data is also provided for each state, showing the average salaries for a licensed nursing assistant, licensed practice nurse, registered nurse and advanced practice nurse. Licensing procedures are discussed for each level of nurse, complete with the necessary fees and tests. Users can quickly view this information for many different states, which makes for easy comparison.

In addition to the state-by-state map guide, Nursing License Map includes additional information on career advancement, such as Master’s in Nursing online programs and Advanced Practice and specialty nursing certification opportunities across geographic boundaries. Here, prospective nursing professionals can better educate themselves on how to pursue nursing specialties that allow a nurse to better serve and care for patients.

As a nurse, advancing your career is not only a good decision professionally, but also beneficial for your patients, your colleagues, and the community in which you practice as a whole. Stay connected with Nursing License Map on TwitterFacebook, and our blog.
