    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.

    I graduated December 14, 2012
    Took NCLEX the first available date which was February 4, 2013
    Just got hired yesterday (2/12/13)
    Start orientation next week.
    I started applying even before graduation because I knew it might take a while to get interviews and hired....and since I applied early, I knew I had to take NCLEX asap. Everything fell into place nicely
    Now I'm just scared and nervous to start my career!!!
