What is this Interim?? Does one have to avail it right away after receiving the ATT or one could postpone availing it?

The Interim Permit is basically a temporary, good for six months only, license to practice nursing under a temp RN lic. # issued by the BON. It does, however, expire upon taking the NCLEX for the first time. So, if you, as I did, work with your IP and pass then great! you'll have your permanent license and keep your job. If you don't pass, then your IP will no longer be valid and if you're working as an RN, you will not be able to work any longer until you actually pass the NCLEX.

When you apply for your license, you also apply for your interim permit at this time for an extra $30.00. Mine was mailed to me about a week or so before graduation. It is good for six months or until you pass or fail your NCLEX. If you fail, than the permit is null and void.
