I will graduate with an ADN in December of this year, probably won't take (and hopefully pass!) the NCLEX until sometime in January. I was browsing my local hospital's job openings today and noticed an RN position in a unit I would really like to work in. It's only September so my concern is if it's inappropriate for me to be applying to jobs so early in my final semester of nursing school. Should I go ahead and apply to this job anyway, or wait until closer to graduation/nclex before applying to anything?
