Can I attend a nursing program out of state and return to CA to work?

Category: Health Care



I live in CA and would like to work in CA after nursing school. Is it possible to attend a nursing program that is outside of CA and still come back to CA to work?


Yes of course you can. After graduating from nursing school, you will need to take the NCLEX exam in California. The state where you take the nclex exam is the state where you are allowed to practice. But yes you can go to a school out of state, but you MUST take the nclex in CA if that is where you want to practice

Yes of course. The NCLEX is country-wide. You would just get a CA license.
