    You can take the state boards anywhere and have the results sent to any state. For example....If you wanted to take the state boards while on vacation in HI, you could do that and just have the results sent to the state of NJ or PA.

    As for salaries, sorry I can't help you there...I work in western PA. Our hospital is unionized, but different unions can be in different hospitals.
