RN student in NYC, relocating take NCLEX in NY or Maryland?Register Today!
- by pongtipRN Apr 21, '11Hi, I am going to school in NYC to become an RN. I am hoping to move to Maryland when I'm done. My question is should I apply to take the NCLEX in Maryland therefore I can skip the whole 'licensure by endorsement' process? That way, I'll just be licensed in Maryland and not NY? Or do I have to take the exam in NY since I went to school in NY, and then apply for a license by endorsement in Maryland? I've checked Maryland Board of Nursing website and it doesn't have a specific answer to my question.
