hi, i was in your shoes about 6 weeks ago. i waited to take my nclex in illinios before i moved to hawaii. it was just faster to get my att from il and then take the nclex. i applied for a hawaii
license after i passed. it costs more money but it was easier and faster than sending all the paper work hawaii requires . you can always apply for a temp. license once you get here but you have to be employed and your only allowed one temp permit. you should go to the hawaii board of nursing at www.hawaii.gov/dcca/areas/pvl/boards/nursing
they have all the info you need.
i would recommed that you apply for new grad positions early they fill up quickly.
i hope this was helpful.
