Hi everyone, Im looking to move to North Carolina when I graduate nursing school in a year here in New Jersey. Does anyone know if I get my NJ nursing license will it be hard to get a North Carolina one right after that? Do i have to work in NJ for a certain amount of time before getting a NC license? And do I have to NCLEX again in North Carolina in order to work there? Any tips will be helpful 🙂

I am in a similar situation. I just passed NCLEX in NJ and I am moving to Maryland. NCLEX is national so you only have to pass it one time in any state. The results transfer with you. I had to apply for license by endorsement in Maryland, pay the fee, get fingerprinted and background check again. That is it. I just graduated in May, passed the NCLEX in June  so I have not worked in NJ because I knew I was moving.

I believe the process is similar for many states.

Good Luck!
