NCLEX and Withdrawn Application

Hey everybody!

I was wondering if someone could help me with a question that I have. I applied for licensure in NJ, received an ATT number, took the NCLEX in NJ, but then withdrew my application from NJ. I am applying for my license in another state. Will I be able to transfer my NCLEX results to that state? Will I have to take the NCLEX again? I know you can transfer your NCLEX results when you apply for endorsement, but what if you just want to start the application process in another state and already took the NCLEX? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm confused. Did you pass NCLEX the first time? If so, you should be licensed in NJ. Why did you withdraw the application?

You're not "transferring your NCLEX result" when you apply for endorsement in another state, you're applying for a license based on that state's acceptance that your original state deemed you had fulfilled the requirements for licensure (NCLEX being one of those requirements). If you're licensed in NJ, you're fine to apply for endorsement to any other state. If you did somehow manage to cancel your NJ application after you took the test but before they issued you a license, you might actually have to apply and take the test again. I'd check with the NJ BON and see if they've licensed you.

NCLEX is a national US exam. Passing results can be used to apply for licensure in any state. Best wishes for a successful career.
