Default Applying for License

Hello all. Very confused -- I am in an LPN program. I know when you take the NCLEX-PN there are compact state license. I know you can have your license endorsed in another state. I just wanted to see if you can avoid that long process. My question is, when you take your exam, can you apply and pay to get a license for more than one state. My situation is this. I live in NY.... I go to school in NJ, where I'm sure there would be more jobs but I am planning on moving to Florida when I am done and hopefully pass. If all the states are compact states, do I just get my license here in NY but wouldn't I eventually need Florida if I am going to live there permanently? Do I just automatically apply for Florida? I don't think I can because I'm not a resident.
Please help! Thank you so much.

I believe you can only be initially licensed in one state and once you pass the NCLEX you get reciprocity.
