I need help! I graduated nursing school in IL in Dec 2010 and have still not passed NCLEX. I have taken it multiple times and am trying not to give up but I'm losing hope. I was told by a fellow co worker who was in my same situation before she passed that if a IL applicant does not pass within the 3 years they can apply for a Iowa liscence and then have it transferred to IL. Is this true? I want to be a nurse so badly and have tried everything I can think of or have been told to pass. After my 3 years is up I would have to go back to school for another 2 years which I can not do. Please help!!
