Featured Programs

Idaho is a compact nursing state.   This means that if you live here and hold a nursing license, you’re able to work in other nurse compact states as well.  Those places include Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

To become an RN in Idaho, you must submit a request to the state Board of Nursing including your personal information in addition to your school of graduation.  Upon passing state examination, a license may be issued in 4-6 weeks.  For individuals holding a license in another state, you may obtain a license by endorsement by submitting request for endorsement to the state Board of Nursing.  You’ll need to include your personal information (name, address, email, ect) as well as current licensure information (your state of licensure and license details (CNM, CNS, RNA, NP, ect))


Although it’s not necessary to have a bachelor of science in nursing to obtain nursing jobs in Idaho, we recommend it.  When applying for jobs, a BSN reflects better than an associate level RN. You increase your hiring potential with a BSN and you’re more qualified for higher paying nursing jobs in management and health care administration. 

There are several ways to obtain a bachelors of science in nursing. While a 4-year bachelor program is definitely one option, you aren’t able to start working as a registered nurse for 4 years, or until you’ve completed the program and your state exam.  For some, a bachelors in science in nursing can take four to five years to complete.  Contrarily, in RN to BSN bridge programs, students are able to start working as a registered nurse after the first two years of school.  Then, the ASN credits are applied to the bachelors (BSN) program.  You’re able to continue working as a registered nurse while your finish school, obtaining many of those mandatory clinical hours.  Many students are able to complete their hours by the time they graduate, ready to complete certifications right out of school. 

RN to BSN programs in Idaho are generally online nursing programs.  The nature of this type of nursing school is to work while your complete book work and written assignments online.  Online nursing schools in Idaho will work with local hospitals and medical centers to help you coordinate your rotations and nursing internships.
