Those holding a current, valid, non-conditional, non-provisional license from another state, may be eligible for reciprocal licensure. Reciprocal licensure, in most cases, will waive the testing requirements for Nevada and allow NDE staff to do the evaluation based on a license-for-license basis. Staff will reciprocate licenses and endorsements applied for to the closest available through Nevada Regulations.

When applying for reciprocal licensure, original transcripts are still required as well as a valid copy of current licenses held in other states. The license(s) held must be uploaded during the application process into the Online Portal of Application and Licensure (OPAL) system as PDF document(s) in the “experience” section under the “out of state licensure” area in OPAL.
