I'm currently licensed in SC. Am weighing my options to get licenses in 3 other states to make myself a more valuable employee to my company (and to give myself more options if I end up being laid off...). I am researching reciprocity and some questions came to mind. 4 to be exact: 1. The words "transfer" and "reciprocate" seem to be used interchangeably.. The word "transfer" makes me think that I'm exchanging my license in SC for a license in another state... that's absolutely wrong... right? If I "reciprocate" I KEEP my license in SC and earn a license in another state as well, yes? I realize this may be a crazy question.. but I refuse to pay hundreds of dollars on something without clearing any doubts. (score transfer when I took the naplex originally was not financially possible at the time) 2.Also if this is true, then I must "maintain" my SC license. Does this mean that I cannot let my SC license be inactive? 3. If I go ahead with all this, I would have licenses in 4 states. Is this manageable? thoughts? 4. Can you use CE for credit for more than one state? OR must I finish CE credits for each individual state? Again, I realize these questions may seem stupid. I've recently been licensed for the first time and I'm here for help, not criticism.
