    I graduated almost 3 years ago. I had a job before I wrote my exam, through a friend I made here on AN. The market was terrible, and I decided to relocate, which was the best decision I could have made. Most of my friends have jobs, but those who were picky took up to a year to find them.

    I had a job a month before I graduated, and I took NCLEX less than 4 weeks after graduation.

    I started applying for jobs in October 2011, received a couple of conditional job offers right before I graduated in December 2011, took NCLEX as soon as I could (about 2 weeks), started my job in January 2012.

    Take NCLEX as quickly as possible after graduation.

    I was hired 3 months before I graduated for my first RN position. I graduated in December of 2011. Started my internship the last week of January 2012.

    I took the NCLEX about a month after graduation. I wanted my studying and school knowledge of nursing to be fresh. I started working in early September of the same year.

    Don't wait too long to take the NCLEX... do a good review but take it while the info is fresh in your head. I graduated mid December and took the NCLEX end of January on a Friday and started my job on Monday. I passed with 75 questions.
