So I will be taking the NCLEX in May and I'm not sure which state to take it for. I am from Virginia (which is part of the compact), but I am planning on moving to Florida (not part of the compact) and trying to find a job there. I think I want to take it for the state of Virginia and then get it endorsed for Florida, but I am nervous that it will take too long to apply and get approved for Florida. Does anyone know how long this process takes for applying for a Florida license or if I can work with a Virginia license in Florida while I am applying for one? My boyfriend is in the military so I won't be working in Florida for more than 2 years (which is why I wouldn't just take it for Florida to begin with, and I think it will help to have a compact license in the long run). And I would like to apply for jobs/start working ASAP once I move so that's why I am nervous that it might take too long to get my license endorsed. Sorry if this is confusing, I am new to this process and have a tricky situation. Any advice would be great! Thanks so much!
