will be done with BSN soon in another state (Tennessee )but spouse got a job in New Jersey so we moving fully to New jersey right after school. what is the process to be licensed in New Jersey? Can I register to have my license sent to New Jersey board but take the exam in Tennessee ? Do they have any requirement for out of state applicant?what's the wait period. Is it possible to have dual license for both NY and NJ? Any information will be well appreciated . which is better in terms of job opportunities in Hospital-NJ or NY. Spouse works in Jersey City. Thank you
You should apply for license by exam in NJ. If you do not plan to work as a nurse in Tenn., there is no reason to spend the money for a license you are not going to use. NCLEX is a national test. It does not matter where you take the test. You can take the exam in Tenn before you move.
