Is it possible that if you are registered to another state but you take the exam on different state. In my case I'm planning to take my exam in cali while i applied for new mexico. thanks

Are you talking about the NCLEX? That is a national test, so it does not matter which state you take it in.

I am currently a senior in Indiana and plan on moving West as soon as I graduate (August) I was just wondering what I will need to do in order to get my license in the state that I choose? My school told me to take it in Indiana for Indiana and transfer it but that seems like it would take too much time. So how do I go about taking it here for say Washington for example?

What I'm told is take the NCLEX wherever you'd like, but apply for licensure in the state you'll be working in after graduation.

Applying for a license in the state you're getting your education in only to have it endorsed in the state you'll be working in does sound like wasted time and fees.
