Ok. I am planning on graduating from a BSN program in 2023. I am at a school in Illinois but plan on moving to Florida upon graduation. Do I take my NCLEX in IL then move or take the NCLEX in Florida?

That is up to you. If you have no plans on working in Illinois then just go straight to Florida and save money

NCLEX is a national test. It is irrelevant where you take the test. You can go to school in Illinois, apply for license in Florida, and take NCLEX Texas. If you are 100% sure that you are going to move to Florida after graduation, apply for an initial license in Florida and have your school send your paperwork to Florida BON

Thank you. This makes sense
