As long as it meets the same legal requirements for powers of attorney's in Nevada and does not limit itself to application in California (or over property in California, etc.) thenit would be valid.

States must give laws of other states full faith and credit.

As far as the legal requirements for powers of attorneys in Nevada, let me know what type of power of attorney it is, and I will tell you what the requirements are.

Under "Special Instructions" for limiting or extending powers granted to your agent, he wrote "N/A".

Also, I do not find written anywhere on it that limits its application to California only. It does state that the document does not authorize anyone to make medical or other health-care decisions.

I just found and printed out the same form online and the form changed only in citing "California Probate Code Sections 4400-4465)otherwise it is exactly the same.

That should be fine as long as it was signed and notorized before a notary public.

There would be other requirements for a medical POA.
