I am entering into my final semester of nursing school, and I have to decide pretty quickly where I want to take the boards. I am from Chicago, and do plan on coming back here after graduation, but I go to nursing school in Louisiana. After doing research, it seems it could take IL anywhere from 2-6 weeks to process my endorsement from Louisiana. So here is my question:
Is it better to take the boards in Louisiana then get endorsed in IL? OR take the boards the 1st time in IL?
Also- Is it that difficult for new grads to finds jobs in Chicago? I keep flip flopping on whether or not I want to stay in LA to get my yr experience or take my chances and come home to find a job. Any info will be greatly appreciated!!!!!
