    The NCLEX is a national exam. Passing does not depend upon which state you test in. However, each state has their own criteria for granting the license. If you want to be licensed in CA, then you need to communicate with the Board in CA. If you are going to work in another state, then it would be easier and faster to apply for a license in that state.
