NCLEX is the same no matter which state you take it in. I'm in IL, but the nearest testing sites to me are in IN which is where nearly everyone in my class tested. One student scheduled his to take in FL while on vacation.
Yes, that is true, but if one desires to get a license in a particular state that they are living or going to be working in, it will be in the test takers best interest to obtain their license for that state.
For example, if someone is in FL for vacation, yet lives in PA and has a job waiting in DE, the test taker would apply for the license in DE and when you take the test, allow the results to be sent to the state...One of my classmates moved to DE during the program, the school told her to apply to DE, unless she desired to work here. Another classmate had obtained a job in TN. We had people who live in NJ and DE who commuted to our program in Philly, as well as many people who started on campus from another state...a lot of people do this regularly, so most programs will have any BON's info. Hope this gives more clarification...
