Back in the day, when you became licensed as a registered nurse, a licensed practical/vocational nurse or an advanced practice nurse, you sat for your NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN boards and met the requirements for an APN license in your state. When you passed your exams or met APN requirements, you were issued a license to practice nursing as an RN, an LPN/VN or APN in your state.
If you decided to practice in another state, you applied for a second license while keeping your first license. This approach to licensure has been in existence for 100 years.
