Applications and Forms

Have questions conc​erning the status of your application?

Licensure by Examination

Apply by "Examination" if you have not yet taken the NCLEX for this license type and are not licensed in another state.

Licensure by Endorsement

Apply by "Endorsement" if you have taken the NCLEX for this license type and are licensed in another state.

New Jersey has partially implemented the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) in that nurses who hold active, unencumbered, multi-state licenses issued by members of the NLC may practice in this state under their multi-state licenses.

It is unnecessary to obtain a New Jersey license if you hold a Compact license from your primary state of residence.
