Hi!

I applied for licensure at New Mexico BON some months back. It took a while before they informed me I could register at Pearsonvue for my ATT. In the months that ensued my application, i could not get in touch with NMBON because nobody would entertain my calls and e-mails. Because of this, I applied for licensure at another state.

Question: I have now received confirmation to take the test from both the state board of nursing i applied to. Is it alright if I take both exams, and if i were to pass them, be licensed in both states? Or should I only be licensed in one state?

Will this create a problem for me in the US embassy?

Thank you!

People usually just test in one state and then apply for license reciprocation in other states.

Next step is to register with pearson VUE for NCLEX-RN exam. Pearson VUE will not register one candidate for two different BONs.

Pearson-Vue will not permit you to register for two states, you will need to select only one. And then have your results forwarded to the second state by the first state.

But cannot test at the same time for two different states.

Since the evaluation will take months, I'm thinking whether I should take NCLEX from CT, instead of OH where I will graduate from soon.

Can any one tell me what is needed for taking NCLEX from another state?

Thanks.

doesn't matter where you take NCLEX it is all the same. All you need to do is follow requirements for that state whether US trained or foreign
