Relocating Future Dental Hygienist... NC to MA or RI

I am currently in Dental Hygiene school in North Carolina. I am about to start my second year of the program, and will graduate in 2019. When I graduate, I plan to move to either Massachusetts or Rhode Island (somewhere close to the state lines). North Carolina is one of the stricter states, where hygienists are not allowed to provide local anesthesia or nitrous oxide, and I believe the northern states allow it. I also have heard that the tests are completely different.. How will this affect me applying for a license up there? I will be taking my boards clinical and written exam here in NC and am completely clueless as to how the process will work when I am ready to move... #rdh #dental-hygienist #relocation #dental-hygiene #dentistry #dental #dental-practice
