Between the crystal clear water trimmed with white sand beaches and towering palm trees topped with fresh coconuts, Hawaii is a dream for vacationers. But Hawaii isn’t just for visiting for a week or two. In fact, travel nurses have the unique opportunity to bring their career to the Aloha state.
A Hawaii nursing license lets nurses experience all of the perks of living and working in Hawaii--and doing what they do best, helping others.
But the first question that interested nurses may be wondering is how to get a nursing license in Hawaii. Luckily, American Mobile is here to help. We are here to guide our travel nurses through the process of obtaining an Hawaii nurse license or a Hawaii Board of nursing license renewal. From initial application and beyond, we can guide nurses through the nursing license process.
The Hawaii Board of Nursing is the key resources for nurses looking to get their Hawaii nursing license. There are two main options: Licensing by endorsement or examination. The option for endorsement is available to nurses who have an active RN license in another state. Examination is required for unlicensed nurses who need to take and pass the NCLEX-RN exam.
Once the status of a nurse has been decided in regards to endorsement or examination, it is time to gather the appropriate documents required for a Hawaii RN license.
The Hawaii Board of Nursing has unique requirements in regards to their fees. A nurse must pay specific attention to even- and odd-numbered years.
According to the Hawaii Board of Nursing:
According to the Hawaii Board of Nursing, application processing time is generally 15-20 business days, from receipt of a completed application.
Nurses who already hold a nursing license in Hawaii have the opportunity to start travel nursing right away if they keep their license active.
It’s important to note, that a Hawaii nursing license, regardless of issuance date, is subject to renewal by June 30 of every odd-numbered year.
If a Hawaii nursing license has been expired for two years, then a nurse is required to apply as a new applicant.
At this time, Hawaii is not part of the Nurse Licensure Compact. This means that RNs must obtain a license by examination, endorsement, renewal or reinstatement to practice nursing in Hawaii. All of this can be done through the Hawaii Board of Nursing.
