confused about transferring license to a different state

  1. I currently have an RN license in Indiana which I see is not part of the NLC. It's possible I'll be moving in the next few months, depending on where my husband gets into law school. I found that since Indiana is not part of the NLC, it doesn't matter if the state I might move to is. What will I need to do to get a license in that state? Do I have to take the NCLEX all over again (I really hope not)? Or is there another test I have to take? Or is just some application process? I haven't found too much of a straight answer anywhere. Please help. Thanks!

    No, no NCLEX, no other test. You can google the state boards of nursing in the states where you may possibly relocate and find out what each requires so that you're prepared to get this process underway as soon as hubby gets his acceptance.

    Good luck to you.

    You do not need to take NCLEX again. NCLEX is a national exam. You need to apply for reciprocity/licensure in the new state.
