temporary license while I wait to sit for NCLEX?

  1. I feel really conflicted. Right now it's tough to find a job in Alabama, especially on the Gulf Coast. I just graduated and my transcript won't be sent by my school until later in the month. I feel like I should just pay the extra $50 to get my temporary license to help me find a job. I'm worried that I won't be able to take the NCLEX until later next year. I can only really think of positive things about just getting my temp - it's a license number. I can also go ahead and start working if I do land a job. Is the temp license worth it? Or should I just wait to sit for the NCLEX to get my permanent?

    Thank you!

    Take NCLEX as soon as you can. Go ahead and get your temp license, it's 50 bucks.
