Does it matter what state you take the NCLEX?

  1. Hello everyone. I just got my eligibility letter from NYSED and will be taking my NCLEX-RN exam soon (NY STATE). We just moved here in California because my husband is now based here (He's in the military BTW). So, my question is, is it fine to take my exam here in California or do i need to fly back to NY just to take the exam?

    Thank you in advance.

    no you don't need to fly back to NY. you can take it in any state. when you do passed your license will say new York but you will have to switch it to Cali license. hope that helps and good luck.

    You can take the NCLEX for any state in any state.

    It may take a while for your license to get endorsed in CA.
