Interview Tips and More

I'm a semester five nursing student who will be graduating next weekend... Holy, that feels amazing to say! Nevertheless, I will not be working this summer because I'll be traveling. I'm from Louisiana, and I was wondering if anyone could give me information about getting my license for Washington state. I have already applied for my Louisiana license, but I decided I wanted to move after the fact (go figure). Heck, I don't know what I want to do with my life, but I would love to move to Seattle because I'm looking for change. I have a lot of friends out there as well. Additionally, there are better job and learning opportunities. Any tips on interviewing for a job would valued that too. I have not taken the NCLEX-RN yet, but I'm in the process of preparing. Graduation is such a bitter sweet feeling--I'm scared to death but excited. If someone could please get back with me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!

You will have to apply in the state that you are currently licensed in and then later request a license from the state board of nursing of the state that you want to move to. This will take time and money and another background check. Neither of the states you mentioned are part of the nursing compact licensure so this is really your only option. Good luck and congratulations.
How is licensing in the UK? If you get a license in one area, do you get to use that license in other areas within the UK?

Are you a prospective nursing student with a nursing school admissions interview coming up? Three nursing educators who’ve interviewed many student nurse hopefuls over the years offer seven tips to help you beat your pre-interview jitters and ace your interview.
1. Consider the Interview an Opportunity
It’s normal to be nervous, but take heart: The purpose of most nursing school interviews (whether they’re a required or optional part of the admissions process) is generally not to weed out applicants, but to provide for a face-to-face, two-way exchange of information about the particular program and how an applicant would fit in. “The interview process itself doesn’t usually make or break our [admission] decision,” says Nan Ketcham, MSN, RN, FastBacc program coordinator at Baylor University’s Louise Herrington School of Nursing in Dallas.
