I would get both-its expensive but it will be worth it. If you chose to get MD first-it is part of compact state so you can work in DE or VA without applying for the state license. It is incorrect-the person who wrote that your original license can only be your compact license. I live in a compact state(not my original license) and i worked in MD and VA. I work in DC now and most of the nurses in the unit lives.in MD. DC has many choices of hosps to work-Georgetown, GW. Childrens, Sibley. If you live in Baltimore you have UMD, John hopkins, Bayview but in the surburbs you have less choices.

Denicu gave you good advice. Weird how they won't take each others with as close as they are. DC often pays better but MD is often cheaper to live.

Yeah it really is weird. I was under the impression that it would be just one license for both but doing research found out otherwise. Thank U.

There are so many, many hospitals in the MD/VA area that I would probably do the MD lisence since it's compact and then if you decide to work in DC you would just need to get that seperately. But, seriously the MD suburbs surrounding DC/VA/Baltimore are flowing with hospitals and some really, really good ones.
