when can i start working/applying

  1. i just took my boards (nclex-pn) last week and very thankful that i passed. i found out my unofficial results via the web so it means i'm still waiting for my official one.

    i am not sure if i can start applying because i don't have my license yet. i read somewhere that it takes about a month to arrive.

    i am planning to leave my part-time job, but not until i know that i can start working as a nurse soon. please help - am desperate to work as soon as i can

    Congratulations on passing your exam. Welcome aboard and good luck. Also, try posting in the General nursing forum.

    You will not be considered an LPN until you have the actual license number, it may be posted on-line before you actually get the license in the mail.

    You can start applying now, most facilities only start orientees every two weeks, etc. Plus, you should be giving two weeks notice to where you are currently working now.

    Just go to the website for your state, and go to the section for license verification. Usually, you will need to click on for LPN or RN, then just look for your name. As soon as a number has been issued, it will be posted.
