I also agree with previous posters - finish school where you are since some schools will not accept coursework from other schools. You may also lose the ability to have in-state tuition rates since you would be changing your residency. Not to mention buying books for a new program, new scrubs
, new stuff for a new program. There are better ways to spend lots of money
Depending on the state in which you live, you may qualify for a nursing compact license. Some states allow nurses from compact states to work in their state without a switch of license.
Compact states as of 5/2018 are:
Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming
The biggest holdouts are the folks on the left coast (CA, WA, OR, NV, HI, AK), but when all is said and done, it's 2/3 of the country that has some sort of reciprocity.
I live in KCMO, and Missouri is a compact state. Literally a rock's throw down the street is Kansas, which is not a compact state. If I lived in KS, I would have to get a license for every state, whereas in Missouri I can practice in all of the compact states.
