Do nursing schools get paid if a student passes the NCLEX in a certain state?

    Sorry, this is a bizarre question. I'm applying out of state because I am moving after graduation but my program wants me to apply to the state we're in. Why is this? There's got to be some incentive or reason as to why my program wants me to apply by exam in our state. I think there's more to it than just familiarity with the environment. Any thoughts? Is my topic question correct?

    It's against the law to pay based on grades or pass rates. However, colleges are required by BONs to have a certain pass rate for the NCLEX or they will loose accreditation. I don't think the state matters though. I think you could still take it in any state and the school would still get the "credit" for it.

    IMO, you are doing the right thing. There is ZERO reason to apply for licensure in a state that you do not intend to practice in. NCLEX is a national exam, so it doesn't matter where you pass it and I don't see why the school would care.

    The only difference is that the schools all automatically send all the educational info to their own state BON each year on all their graduates, and, if you're applying in a different state, the school has to make arrangements to separately send your info to the state in which you're applying. It's not really that big a deal, but it's an inconvenience for the school.
