Important NCLEX Question - time sensitive


  • Specializes in Pediatrics, Neurology, Public Health Education. Has 10 years experience.

I need to make plane flights soon! I am currently a nursing student in Seattle, Washington but I am a resident of Houston, Texas. I plan to be licensed in Texas but I was hoping to take the test in Seattle to study with my friends. If I take the NCLEX in Seattle, can I have it sent to Texas to become licensed in that state? I don't want to become licensed in Washington.

You can take the test anywhere, however there are things you need to do first. Go to the Texas board of nursing website and follow the steps there and give you school the appropriate information as to where to send your records.
