    you to?

    I ask because it seems as if the program wants all of us to apply to the state's BRN but I want to apply out-of-state...

    Schools are accustomed to graduates applying for licensure in that state (and typically send all the graduates' info to the state BON automatically), but you're not obligated to if you have other plans. You can apply to any state you choose; you just have to make sure that your school sends your educational info to the BON in that state.

    We are in Ohio and my friend is moving to Florida on graduation day, and the school told her just to apply there. You can print out the application online and send it in just the same as those applying for license in the state you are in now are doing. You shouldn't apply to the state if you are not staying there or working there.

    YOU make the application and take the NCLEX in the state you'll be in.

    It may well be "easier," but it will take more time (time to get license in current state plus time for endorsement to state you want to be licensed in) and $$$ (application fees for two licenses instead of one). Not sure what you mean by your reference to compact states -- that only matters if one happens to be living in a compact state, and doesn't make that much of a difference. If you go to school in a compact state and plan to move to another state, you'll still have to apply for licensure by endorsement in the new state (regardless of whether the new state is a member of the NLC or not) when you move.
