"The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)
is a standardized exam that each state board of nursing
uses to determine whether or not a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice
The tests are therefore the SAME. Each State may have their own requirements for a RN, but that's in addition to the NCLEX-RN.
Take it for what it's worth as I'm still in NS, but I would keep doing what you're doing and take the NCLEX where you went to school and THEN ask for reciprocity - this is the advise I was given by my instructors.

i believe that to which you refer is endorsement.....go back to the website and simply check for "how to obtain lic." or some such.....also, if you dont plan on practicing in your present location, simply test for the state of arizona....
