How long between graduation and sitting for the NCLEX?

  1. Hi everybody and Happy Labor Day! I'm just curious...how long did it take between graduation and actually sitting for your NCLEX? I graduate from my LPN program on September 28th :mortarboard: ...FINALLY!!!!! I'll have all of my requirements (nothing to make up) and I want to take the NCLEX asap. I know it mainly depends on how long it takes my school to send in the paperwork, but I just wanted to get an idea of how long it took you guys who wanted to schedule right away. (I'm in NYC if that makes a difference). Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    I'm sure it is a bit different everywhere but I scheduled 3 weeks after graduation. I wanted a couple of weeks after classes were done to catch my breath and focus on studying for NCLEX but didn't want to wait too long. You might be able to register and pay online before they receive your OK and that way you will be emailed as soon as you get the OK to schedule. Good luck, Jules

    Hi, I graduated in May 24 2006 in the LPN program in California..It took one month for the board to say it was okay for us to test..That was June 24, then for pearsons, the only available spot was a month later in late July..So California people who want to take the NCLEX PN would have to wait 2 months after graduation to take NCLEX
