You can choose which ever company is accepted by the state. Most companies take the same time for assessment which is 4 months approx.

I would start assessment first but you could still send application and fee to the state only they will not really do anything with your application until all relevant documents are in your file. IELTS results usually go to the company doing assessment but you can also request that results go to the state.

Remember you are not applying for NCLEX but to register as a licensed nurse. NCLEX is just a part of the process
