How long did you wait to take the NCLEX-RN exam?

    From graduation until day of NCLEX was exactly 60 days for me. As soon as I received the ATT, I nabbed the first time slot I could get!

    I waited 2 months because I had to get my ATT and then I scheduled the test about three weeks from then.

    I got my ATT on the 27th of December, graduated December 15th (but applied for ATT before graduation- transcript was sent by my school immediately following graduation) and took the NCLEX the 11th of January! But we had people that took the NCLEX on the 2nd of January!

    It was three weeks from when I graduated to when I sat for my NCLEX. I would have taken it sooner, but that was the earliest time slot I could find in an area I wanted to take it in.

    Graduated Dec 14th, one week later received my ATT and took the Nclex 2 weeks after that. So 3 weeks after I graduated I took the Nclex-RN.

    I waited about 2 months. That was how long it took me to feel comfortable enough to sit for the exam. I over studied, but I wanted to make sure everything was in line.
