Hey everyone. I'm currently a nursing student with about 1 year left, and just had a question about my license when I get it. I plan to get my license in the state of Virginia, and was wondering if anyone knows if VA has a compact with other states? (So my license would be good in another state without getting another license)
Another question I have is, if I do switch to another state that doesn't have a compact with VA, how hard is it to apply for a license there? Do you have to retake the NCLEX or pay a fee? Sorry if these questions are stupid, I'm just trying to figure things out. Where I live, PN's start about 40k a year, and the cost of living is just SO HIGH ($1500 rent on a 1br apartment) and I do NOT plan to stay in this area or state when I graduate!
