I am currently taking Nursing classes for my RN in Massachusetts, I have only a year and half left. When I am finished with school I plan on moving to another state down South. If I am licensed in MA do I have to get another license for that state?

You need to check out the state requirements for you to be registered as a RN to be able to work. For most cases unless you meet compact requirements (permanent residence in one state and work in another state that is in the compact group) you have to have a license for the state you plan on working in. You can have numerous state licenses and can maintain them as long as you meet renewal requirements and pay fees.
Links for boards of nursing for each state can be found at the bottom of the page and look for endorsement once you get to the state website
