    She is confused but don't let her confusion rub off. They need new nurses really bad and she knows that. She will do all she can to keep you on, so just take a deep breath and move on.

    I got issued a interim/temporary license upon graduation. I was able to work with this until I wrote the national exam. They just paid us as top level NA's and when we passed and brought in our result card they back paid us to our start date the difference between NA and LPN wages.

    I mean I graduated in October, missed the September writing by 10 days and the next scheduled exam wasn't until January.

    Ask her if something like this would apply to you.

    Remember you don't get if you don't ask...
