Virginia Licensure Information and Requirements
For the most up-to-date information on licensure requirements and fees, visit the Virginia Board of Nursing website or contact them at (804) 367-4515.
Since Virginia is part of the Nurse Licensure Compact, you won’t need to get a state-specific license to work as a travel nurse there if you already have a multistate license in another compact state.
If your primary license is in a non-compact state, you may apply for licensure by endorsement. To complete this process, you must:
- Carefully review the application instructions before filling out an online application
- Review the laws and regulations governing Virginia nursing
- Complete a criminal background check
- Request license verification through NursysⓇ or from your original state of licensure (where you took the NCLEX)
- Provide proof of your primary state of residence
- If you do not currently have a Social Security Number, you must contact the Board at (804) 367-4515 or email@example.com for instructions to apply online for Licensure by Endorsement
Application processing times are currently between 30-45 business days. If your assignment is coming up sooner than that, the Virginia Board of Nursing offers temporary 90-day licenses while your information is pending.
The application fee for licensure by endorsement is $170 for LPNs or $190 for RNs.
