I plan on leaving Florida to go back to my birthplace in the midwest after I graduate. I'd like to just graduate from school, take the NCLEX and move. I was wondering if anybody knew what sort of difficulties I could encounter in switching states right after completing a nursing program. Should I wait to take the NCLEX until after I move? Thanks!
Quote from GrnTea
Note, you have to have your primary license in the state where you are a legal resident. You can't live in non-compact state A, take your license in compact state B, and then go to compact state C and be licensed by endorsement. Doesn't work that way.
When you make a statement like this it helps if you explain further....
From the DE BON:
When to File Application by Examination
Complete this application if you are applying to take the NCLEX examination and your home state of residence is either Delaware or a non-compact state.
- If one of the following compact states other than Delaware is your home state of residence, you must apply for licensure by examination in your home state, not in Delaware: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin
Listening to the other posters I believe what i said is possible and what i have to do according to the DE & MD BON. But let know if it wouldnt work
