I currently live in WI, but am thinking about working in Illinois after graduation this May. Does anybody know if you can apply to two states for a nursing license? if so, how might I go about doing this? Thanks.

You can have as many licenses at the same time as you want. But, you will have to pay the fees for them. If you get a license in one state, then you can get a license by endorsement in another state. So, say you get WI first, then you can apply for IL bby endorsement. I am not sure if you can get them both at the same time i.e. immediately after the nclex.

You have to go thru one state for initial licensure, then you could apply to all of the others for an endorsement. Only one for the initial state.
