    Why? Usually better to apply to state you plan on living and working in.

    You only need to pass NCLEX once & then you can apply for licensure in any state. It doesn't matter where you take the test.

    If you are wanting to work in Connecticut, take the test you already have scheduled, pass, and then send results & application for license to Connecticut.

    No, you can not apply for a "licensure by exam" in two states. Apply to one state and when you pass NCLEX and get a licence, apply to the second state by "licensure by endorsement".
