Should I apply for permanent residency to another state?

Rating:
(votes: 0)


Hi everyone!

I am sorry if there's another thread to answer this question, but I was hoping to get some insight and advice from anyone that has gone through a similar situation?

I am a new grad and have secured a nursing position in another state. I am thinking about getting 2-3 years of experience in the second state and move back to my original state. I am wondering if it is a smart idea to apply for permanent residency in the second state, apply for a driver's license there and what not? If so does anyone know what the process of applying for permanent residency is like?

Thank you in advance for sharing any input!
I thought if you was moving for a few years then you have to change your residency which also involved changing driving license etc?

I've really never heard of the term 'permanent residency,' let alone having to apply for it. But yes, if you live in a state for 2-3 years, you will need to establish residency: driver's license, license plates, pay state taxes, etc.

You will automatically be a "permanent resident" of whatever state you're physically living in unless you are maintaining a residence in another state (own property, pay taxes, etc.) Will you be maintaining a residence in your original state?

Thanks everyone for the input.Maybe I am using the wrong term? For example, if a student moved to a different state to attend college they would not have to apply for a driver's license, etc. and would have to pay out of state tuition because they're permanent residency is in their original state. That is what I was wondering if it is a good idea to plan to apply for a DL and car plate even if I am planning to move back to my original state anyway ... especially because I am still attending a distance nursing program in my original state?

School is very different so I see why you are confused. If moving for a job you become a resident of your new state. You buy/rent a new residence, then apply for utilities, drivers license, insurance. When not a student and do not maintain a home in another state (such as what travel nurses do) you change your state of residence. You have ~30 days to apply for a drivers license once you move regardless if you are returning to your original state
