hey everyone! I was wondering if you can apply to take the licensure by exam not in your home state. I will be moving to CO and starting a job about a month and a half after graduation and want to no if i can just apply for license by exam for CO but went to school in FL (my school is nat'l accredited). Also will it take longer sine I am out of state to get my info to sign up for the NCLEX? Thanks!

Check with your desired state BON to see their requirements for licensure by exam. As long as they recognize your school, you should be able to have your transcripts sent to that state and be issued an ATT once the BON directs Pearson to send it.

Yes you can. I did it in the state I plan on working in and I know of others who have done so also.

I did it. I had my school send my transcripts to my desired state, state approved my education, I was sent my ATT. You should be able to check on CO BON website to make sure that your program meets Colorado's requirements (clinical requirements, coursework, etc.)
