- by flyfarfaraway Jul 7, '11I was just wondering if you can graduate from nursing school, and then immediately afterwards move to a different state and be licensed in that state without any problems. Does it matter that your degree is from a different state? I will be moving from GA right after graduation to East Tennessee.
- Jul 7, '11 by nursemomma11I don't see why not. I'm a Tennessee gal and will be graduating from Excelsior, which is in Albany, NY. The application for your NCLEX is a little more labor intensive than through traditional schools (only because traditional schools handle the paperwork process), but that's about it. As long as its an accredited institution.
