Probably 4 months after you have sent your application and then ATT will be issued by Pearson VUE if you are eligible i think you can apply yes. For interim permit its on the way HOPEFULLY they are fast over there my friend told me so NO WORRIES ITS ON THE WAY OKEY GOODLUCK
Sorry, but no. A foreign grad should never apply to Pearson-Vue until they actually have the approval of the state that they are applying to. A date cannot be scheduled before that, so it never makes sense.
Plus, if for some reason that a nurse would have issues with the BON is whatever state, they will not get the money refunded from Pearson-Vue.
Once you give them the money, it belongs to them. Plus, once the ATT gets issued, you have only 90 days to take the exam, or you lose the money paid, as well.
