Take NCLEX test anywhere?


I finally got my ATT yesterday, but there are no test appointments available anywhere in Maryland until mid-July. Someone told me I could take the test in Washington D.C. where they have sooner appointsments. If I have applied for my license in Maryland, can I test anywhere?

you don't have to test in the same state you applied for licensure. you can test anywhere in the u.s. without penalty.

You can actually sit for the exam anywhere in the world that has a testing center, such as Hong Kong, London, or even Seoul. You are not required to sit for the exam in the state where you are going to be licensed.

Good luck to you............... :)

Thank you, both. I'm really exited and relieved that I don't have to wait until July.
