Transferring Your Nursing License Out of State

If you transfer your original nursing license to another state and/or become certified in another state, please be advised that State Boards and certification agencies require proof of education, course objectives, clinical hours and clinical details many years (20 years plus) after completion of your degree. Although the University of Washington would be able to provide short catalog descriptions, we will not be able to provide details about your clinical placements, hours, course objectives and evaluations. Therefore, please keep your own personal records of your course syllabi, course objectives, logs and copies of your clinical evaluations.
