When To Take NCLEX

  1. How long after graduating did you wait to take the NCLEX? What is the average wait time? Thanks for all responses.

    I waited about four weeks. I don't know what average is, but most of my classmates took it within 3-6 weeks.

    I waited four weeks after graduation to take the Nclex and that was only because I wanted to attend the review that my employer offered to new hires.

    It ended up being about 5 weeks before I took the NCLEX after graduating. I signed up as soon at I got my ATT. Good luck

    I haven't taken mine yet but we were told that those who take it within the first 60 days have a higher pass rate than those who take it in the latter 60 days.
