Hi...just need some clarification here. I thought that to write the NCLEX exam you HAVE to have your CRNE taken already in order to be eligible to write the nclex...another nursing student told me today that she thinks that you can take the nclex and become a RN without taking your CRNE (her rationale is that since your working in the USA you dont need the CRNE since its for Canada)
Who's right? I think I am on this one!
(we are in nursing School in Canada btw)
I have another question also....can you take your Nclex WHILE waiting for your CRNE results? Because if you want to work in the states after graduating you'll have to take the exam...wait all those long weeks for your result THEN take the NCLEX! Wouldnt that take months? What happens if you have a job lined up in the states for after you graduate - you wouldnt be able to work for a looong time until you get your US lisence and then you apply to the BON for the state that you want to work in - it'll take forever!
