School in different state

  1. I live in Idaho and the school I will be attending is in Oregon. So when I finish school will I have a GN in Idaho or Oregon? Also... If I get my GN in Oregon and then take my NCLEX in Idaho will I offically be an RN in Idaho or Oregon? I hope you understand what I am asking..

    You'll be a GN wherever you decide to work as a GN.

    You will have be licensed in the state where you take the NCLEX. If you take it in Idaho, you will be registered and licensed in Idaho.

    It's not where you get your education. It's where you work and get your license.
