I'm attending a college in the state of New Jersey for an associates in nursing. Now I live in New York. Will I be able to work as a nurse in New York even though I am taking my classes in New Jersey. And also I would be taking the NCLEX in the state of New Jersey as well

You can apply for licensure in the state(s) of your choosing. You can apply for licensure in as many states as you wish (and can afford) with the exception being if you live in a compact state and apply for a compact license.

One exam for all 50 US states, some territories and most of Canada (NCLEX-RN) Two sets of licensing fees. Neither NY nor NJ or PA participate in the nursing license compact.

If you are planning on NYC know there are hundreds of applicants per job posted and jobs are given to experienced nurses and BSN RN often over ASN in acute care
