Obtaining Illinois License

  1. Hi All,

    Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find answers anywhere. I currently live in a compact state and need to obtain my Illinois nursing license for a job. Does anyone know how to go about doing this? I can't seem to find straight forward answers anywhere. Please tell me I do not need to take the NCLEX again!

    Thanks so much for you help!

    No, you do not need to retake NCLEX. When moving from state to state, you apply for licensure by endorsement. This packet has instructions for the state of Illinois.
