State License

  1. Hi. I want to know if you complete an RN program in Virginia, are you only licensed in Virginia? If you live in Maryland, but do the program in Virgina, can you get licensed in Maryland or do you have to go to school in Maryland?

    You only have to go to school (and graduate, of course! ) once, and you only have to pass the NCLEX once. After that, you can apply for licensure in any state (you are not even automatically licensed in VA because you went to school there -- you still have to apply for licensure).
